2) ASU AIESEC Seeks Support for Global Citizen Program

AIESEC at Appalachian State University is looking for support to start its international volunteer program, Global Citizen. Support may include offering volunteer opportunities with High Country nonprofits, becoming a host family, or providing monetary sponsorships.

AIESEC is the world’s largest youth-run organization. Spanning over 126 countries and facilitating 34,000 volunteer experiences a year, AIESEC facilitates leadership development in students around the world. Currently, Appalachian’s AIESEC chapter is working to provide these leadership development opportunities within the Boone community.

AIESEC’s Global Citizen program gives non-profits and non-government organizations in the High Country the opportunity to take in volunteers from around the world.

By cultivating a relationship with international volunteers, organizations will be able to develop new perspectives and solutions to the problems they are working to fix. Furthermore, the Boone community as a whole will benefit by being exposed to the different cultures the volunteers represent.

If your organization would like to contribute in a way other than hosting volunteers, AIESEC at Appalachian is accepting donations and sponsorships in order to help bring down the financial costs for both the volunteers and the organizations receiving them. Host families are also wanted in order to ensure a quality stay for the volunteers while they work with the local community.

If interested, please contact Vice President of Incoming Exchange Natalie Vergara at [email protected]. Learn more about AIESEC at http://aiesec.org/

6) Appalachian Wind Ensemble to Perform Nov. 23

An evening of symphonic masterpieces will be performed Nov. 23 by the Appalachian Wind Ensemble from the Hayes School of Music. The 8 p.m. concert will be in the Schaefer Center for the Performing Arts at Appalachian State University. Admission is free.

John Stanley Ross is the conductor. He is assisted by graduate students Matthey Brusseau and Onsby C. Rose.

First on the program is Boris Kozhevnikov’s “Symphony No. 3,” arranged by Col. John R. Bourgeois.  Onsby C. Rose will conduct. Kozhevnikov composed more than 70 compositions for Russian military bands.

Matthew Brusseau will conduct “Ave Maria,” written by Franz Biebl and arranged by John Stanley Ross. Ross’ inspiration for the arrangement came while he was studying for a master’s degree in wind conducting at the University of Michigan and singing in the Michigan Men’s Glee Club. During his first rehearsal with the vocal ensemble, he had the privilege of singing Biebl’s original version. The composition was so moving, he tailored it for wind ensemble.

Rose will conduct the wind ensemble’s chamber winds in a performance of “Consort for Ten Winds” by Robert Spittal. The composition was inspired by 16th-century French wind music.

Also on the program is Vittorio Giannini’s “Symphony No. 3.”  The work was commissioned by the Duke University Band in 1958

The program concludes with Leroy Anderson’s popular “Bugler’s Holiday” featuring the wind ensemble’s trumpet section.
