New Composition by Melinda Wagner '79 Receives Acclaim in Washington
"Extremity of the Sky," a concerto for piano and orchestra by Melinda Wagner '79, received rave reviews for its debut by the National Symphony Orchestra in Washington, D.C. on March 23. In a review of the concert (3/24/06), Tim Page of The Washington Post wrote "Far and away the best music of the night came with Melinda Wagner's 'Extremity of Sky,' a concerto for piano and orchestra that melds high modernism with prismatic color and romantic fancy. It is in four movements, contains a whopper of a part for pianist (here the estimable Emanuel Ax) and combines assertive mantric chiming with soft, neoimpressionist chords. Imagine Elliott Carter and Olivier Messiaen teaming up to write a concerto, add a certain lithe sense of mystery that is Wagner's own and you'll have some idea of 'Extremity of Sky.'" Wagner won a Pulitzer Prize for music composition in 1999.

Tim Berbenich '02 Moves from the NY Jets to Tampa Bay Buccaneers

On Thursday, the Bucs announced the hiring of seven new assistant coaches, including two who have left the USC staff to jump to the NFL. Ten years after hiring Rod Marinelli to coach their D-Line and shortly after Marinelli left to become the Detroit Lions new head coach, the Buccaneers have filled that position with the Trojans’ Franklin. The team’s new defensive backs coach, Greg Burns, is also fresh off that USC staff; he replaces Mike Tomlin, who is now the defensive coordinator for the Minnesota Vikings.

After seeing their coaching staff raided by four other organizations, the Bucs also filled six additional openings, including one from within. Jimmy Lake is the new assistant defensive backs coach, replacing Raheem Morris, who took the defensive coordinator position at Kansas State. Tim Berbenich and Nathaniel Hackett are the new offensive quality control coaches, replacing Kyle Shanahan, who joined Gary Kubiak’s new staff in Houston, and Chris Wiesehan. And Casey Bradley is the new defensive quality control coach, filling the vacancy left when Joe Woods followed Tomlin to Minnesota.

Berbenich comes to the Buccaneers from the New York Jets, where he was a quality control coach last season and an offensive assistant in 2003-04. Shultz spent the last two seasons as the strength and conditioning coach for the Minnesota Vikings. Lake, Hackett and Bradley, though, are three more NFL first-timers making the jump from the NCAA. Lake has coached at Eastern Washington, Washington and, most recently, Montana State. Hackett, the son of Buccaneers Quarterbacks Coach Paul Hackett, was on Stanford’s staff the last three years, serving as a specialists coach and recruiting coordinator in 2005. Bradley spent the last decade at North Dakota State, holding the defensive coordinator position for seven of those 10 years.

Berbenich spent three seasons (2003-05) as a member of the Jets coaching staff, including one season as a quality control coach in 2005. He served as an offensive assistant coach during his first two seasons (2003-04). Berbenich originally joined the Jets as an operations assistant for the 2002 season after interning in the operations department during training camps from 2000-01. From 1998-01, he played wide receiver for Hamilton College in Clinton, New York.

Joe Howard '70 Appears in Film "The World's Fastest Indian"

The Kirkland Art Center (KAC) will be sponsoring a showing of Roger Donaldson's THE WORLD'S FASTEST INDIAN Thursday night, March 16, at 7:00, at the Marquee Cinemas in New Hartford. Alumnus Joe Howardd '70 has a role in the film.

The KAC describes the film as follows: "Anthony Hopkins gives perhaps his most endearing, least showy performance in this film about a kind of heroism that has gone out of style. THE WORLD'S FASTEST INDIAN, directed by Roger Donaldson, is based on the true story of New Zealander Burt Munro. Burt is a man in his 60s who has spent years tinkering with a 1920 Indian motorcycle. In 1967, Burt thinks the Indian may be ready to travel to the Bonneville Salt Flats in Utah and take part in the annual Speed Week. The officials lack the heart to turn him away. Underfunded, without the support of a team and against all odds, he not only makes it to Bonneville, he sets a national land speed record, not once, but repeatedly."

The showing is the eighth in the KAC's "Bleak Winter Film Series." The series receives funding from the New York State Council on the Arts and is co-sponsored by the Department of Comparative Literature. More ...
