The School of the Arts presented a concert by top music students in “The Art of Music” on Sunday, Jan. 29, at the John D. MacArthur campus auditorium. The afternoon began with a “Conversation with the Artists,” followed by the concert and a champagne reception. More than 100 guests attended.
The concert featured vocal and instrumental solos and ensembles, including piano, woodwinds (pictured) and strings. Works by Mozart, Gershwin, Chopin, Wieniawski, Copland and others were played.
The concert host committee included Dorothy F. Schmidt College of Arts and Letters Dean William Covino and his wife, Deborah Covino; Jupiter Campus Vice President Kristen Murtaugh and her husband, Dan Murtaugh; and local attorney John Flanigan and his wife, Janet Flanigan.
“We are always pleased to have students from the Schmidt College of Arts and Letters perform on our campus,” said Dr. Kristen Murtaugh. “The concert provided a wonderful afternoon of outstanding music.”
“The Art of Music” was sponsored by Centex Construction Company. The Jupiter Courier was media sponsor.

"A Story of Petrified Wood" by Jerry Cone and Liam Unfer focuses on the natural beauty of petrified wood. The brightly colored specimens are cross-section cuts of petrified wood, showing the result of living trees which have turned completely into stone - a process which historically takes from 65 to 250 million years. The exhibit runs through March 31.
"BocaRatoons: Editorial Cartoons by Ray Russotto for the Boca Raton News" will run from March 27 through May 10 and offers a hilarious collection of editorial cartoons dealing with topics local, national and international, all flavored with that particularly "Boca" viewpoint. Cartoonist Russotto muses over the origins of South Florida weather, the demise of the International Museum of Cartoon Art and battles over citrus canker — all in good spirit.
Both exhibits are presented on the first floor of the MacArthur Campus Library on the first floor. For more information, call 561-799-8530 or visit http://www.library.fau.edu/npb/npb.htm.
