(Nov. 11, 2011) -- The UTSA Department of Music will host a faculty recital and musical concert at 7:30 p.m., Monday, Nov. 14 in the Arts Building Recital Hall on the UTSA Main Campus. Admission is free and open to the public. The event will feature songs from Elizabethan England, Brazil and France as well as jazz and pop classics.
Scheduled performers include UTSA Department of Music faculty members Linda Poetschke and Matthew Dunne. Following the recital, Dunne will perform as a member of The Accidental Trio, comprised of vocalist Joan Carroll and accordionist Mark Rubinstein.
The Accidental Trio derived their name after forming spontaneously at the Instituto de Mexico when other members of a jazz combo failed to show up for a concert. Their musical sound is a more intimate folksy sound achieved by a combination of acoustic guitar, accordion and subtle vocals.
Poetschke joined UTSA in 1984 and has chaired the department's voice area since 1989. She is a frequent recitalist on university campuses and has performed professional concerts in Switzerland, London, Paris, Amsterdam, Berlin and the Czech Republic.
Guitarist and composer Matthew Dunne has been with UTSA since 1992 and directs the guitar and music marketing programs. He has taught throughout the United States and Mexico in both classical and jazz genres.
Dunne has collaborated frequently with the Los Angeles Guitar Quartet including compositions on their Grammy Award winning CD "Guitar Heroes." In 2008, he was the winner of the Tobin Grand Prize for Artistic Excellence from the Artist Foundation of San Antonio.
Joan Carroll has sung professionally for more than 25 years as an accomplished jazz vocalist and is well known for her sensitive phrasing, intonation and comprehensive knowledge of the jazz repertoire. She hosts a radio show, "The Jazz Voice," on KRTU FM 91.7 at 11 a.m. Saturdays.
Mark Rubinstein has cultivated a career combining his interests as a performing accordionist, record producer, record engineer and educator. He has performed all over the world in a variety of musical settings from avant-garde theater pieces to symphony orchestras. His work as a recording engineer and producer has contributed to platinum records, Grammy nominations and No. 1 Billboard records for his clients. Currently, he oversees recording activities at The Ohio State University and teaches audio recording classes while collaborating with faculty on recording and research projects.
A revolution in cloud computing is underway, and Ravi Sandhu believes it will be much bigger than the PC and Internet revolutions that have already changed the way we live. Sandhu, director of the UTSA Institute for Cyber Security, says UTSA is taking a leadership role in tackling three fundamental cloud technology problems: how to build and operate the cloud, how to use it profitably for diverse applications and how to keep it secure.
Sandhu, the Lutcher Brown Distinguished Chair in Cyber Security in the College of Sciences, and Ram Krishnan, assistant professor of electrical engineering in the UTSA College of Engineering, are funded by a $500,000 grant from the National Science Foundation to improve cloud security.
Did you know? Sandhu, a world-renowned cybersecurity expert, holds 30 patents, has authored more than 250 papers and been cited more than 30,000 times.
