Jazz pianist Gerald Clayton performed last night at Ursa Minor's Cafe in the MSU. Thursday afternoon, he spoke with one of Professor Kevin Kjos' class about beats, rhythms and jamming.
The university received notice yesterday of the passing of Kutztown University professor emeritus, Dr. Arnold Newman. Professor Newman was a member of the English department from 1967-2001, department chair of the department from 1979-1993 and “was well-known for encouraging students and faculty to recognize the interdisciplinary nature of academics.” Dr. Newman’s funeral services are set for tomorrow.
