Location: 1401 State Route 10, Whippany, NJ 07981
When: June 13, 2013
Time: 6:00 pm

The Many Are One alumni awards gala is Seton Hall’s premier annual black-tie event. The gala provides an opportunity to celebrate the ways in which the University’s alumni have positively influenced our world. Proceeds raised from the gala support four-year scholarships for children, grandchildren and siblings of alumni who attend Seton Hall; each selected student receives $36,000 in scholarship funds.

This year, Joe Michaels, ’63 and director at NBC’s Today Show, will be honored as the year’s Most Distinguished Alumnus, Joan M. Bosisio, ’97 and Seton Hall University adjunct professor of public relations, will receive the Alumni Impact Award, and Jim O’Brien, ’82 and senior managing partner of Napier Park Global Capital, will be this year’s Humanitarian Honoree, among other honorees.

Seton Hall University is like a mid-size city – with over 80,000 alumni, 10,000 students and 1,500 employees. However, more than 150 years after its founding, it remains true to its mission; it is a welcoming community, rooted in faith, and is steadfast in the pursuit of academic excellence.

Tied together by a common bond, Many Are One is the only event at which all of Seton Hall comes together as one to celebrate Seton Hall. Through it, alumni, faculty, administrators, students and friends gather to share the special link that unites them all – their devotion to Seton Hall.

Guest Conductor Todd Doan and the orchestra will take the audience on a musical adventure that includes Russian composer Nikolai Rimsky-Korsakov’s brilliant encapsulation of Spanish folk tunes in Cappricio Espagnol and French composer Camille Saint-Saën’s exotic Danse Bacchanale from Samson and Delila. The musical journey also includes Australian born composer Percy Grainger’s reminisces of the British Isles with An Irish Tune from County Derry (which he wrote while living in America.)  Diana Charos Reilly, the talented Director of New Jersey Youth Symphony’s Flute Choir and Flute Forum, rounds out the orchestra program as the guest artist featured in Fantaisie Pastorale Hongroise, an improvisational flute air by Polish composer, Albert Franz Doppler.  This piece evokes images of a spring morning in the Hungarian countryside.  The program continues as Gavin Davies conducts the Intermezzo Orchestra, highlighting additional stops along this musical tour around the world. The concert is free and open to the public.

Guest Conductor Todd Doan, with sixteen years of conducting and teaching experience, currently teaches at Cicely L. Tyson School of the Performing Arts in East Orange, NJ. He received degrees in Music Education and Orchestral Conducting from the University of South Florida and has conducted youth symphonies throughout Florida , New Jersey, New York and Connecticut.

Flute soloist Diana Charos Reilly is a New Jersey native, a graduate of Juilliard pre-college and New Jersey Youth Symphony. She studied at Hartt School of Music and continued her graduate studies at Mason Gross at Rutgers, Ithaca College and Oberlin.  She devotes her time to teaching at schools, universities, Skidmore Summer Flute Institute and privately and as the Artistic Programming Coordinator and Director of Flute Choir and Flute Forum at the NJYS.

The next stop on this orchestra’s agenda is Washington DC. NJIO has been invited to perform this summer on the Millenium Stage at the Kennedy Center.

This program is made possible in part by funds from the New Jersey State Council on the Arts/Department of State, a Partner Agency of the National Endowment for the Arts and by a HEART (History, Education, Arts Reaching Thousands) Grant from the Union County Board of Chosen Freeholders, the Summit Area Public Foundation, the Lillian P.

The Run for Rachel includes children’s entertainment, a DJ, refreshments, goodie bags for all pre-registrants and prize drawings.  Area schools and local organizations can participate by signing up for Run for Rachel, either individually or by forming teams, by asking friends and family members to sponsor them with a financial pledge or by volunteering to help out at the Run.

Neoliberalism and Democracy: Lecture by John Buschman, Dean of University Libraries, Seton Hall University

John Buschman, Dean of University Libraries, Seton Hall Univeristy
Location: Seton Hall University
400 S Orange Ave, South Orange, NJ
When: April 23, 2013
Time: 12:30 pm–1:30 pm

Students in classrooms, schools and universities and library users (often the same groups) are frequently awash in corporate messages – advertising, sponsorships, logos, and so on. Should this bother us, and if so, why? These practices have reached a crescendo in an age of neoliberalism – that is, the market is considered the model of public reason for all sectors of society. It is frequently asserted that these are inappropriate messages inside our educative institutions important to democracy, but that often just boils down to a simple moralizing. The historic entanglements of businesses and advertising with these institutions tell us there was no "golden age," so to sort out the question we must turn elsewhere. Varieties of democratic theory help us to both identify the ways in which educative institutions in a democracy – schools, universities and libraries in this case – are designed to foster democratic culture and practices, and the ways in which neoliberal practices inside those institutions work against those purposes. Buschman reviews the basic ideas and arguments of his recent book.
