GOP Governor Supports Fracking Ban in MD! CCAN Statement

ANNAPOLIS, MD -- Today, Republican Governor Larry Hogan of Maryland yielded to overwhelming scientific data and voter support by giving his support to a statutory ban on hydraulic fracking for gas in the state. He made the announcement at a press conference joined by Maryland Senator Bobby Zirkin, the lead sponsor of Senate Bill 740. The bill would place a statewide ban on the drilling practice.

The Frostburg State University Department of Music will present the Lyra Ensemble as part of its Woodwind Quartet-a-Month series on Wednesday, March 29, at 7:30 p.m. in the Pealer Recital Hall of FSU’s Performing Arts Center. This event is free and open to the public.

Members of the ensemble are Dr. Kristin Bacchiocchi-Stewart, on flute, alto flute and piccolo; Ellen Fisher-Deerberg, on flute and bass flute; Anna Meyer, on flute and piccolo; and Dr. Elivi Varga, on flute.

The quartet will begin with “Sinfonia” from “The Marriage of Figaro” by Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart. This will be followed by five modern pieces, beginning with “An Gaelic Tiodhlac” (“A Gaelic Offering”) by Catherine McMichael, which consists of four Gaelic pieces in traditional style – rowdy, raw and rambunctious when fast, and achingly personal when slow. The ensemble will then perform “Four ’Scapes” by Cynthia Folio, consisting of “Cityscape,” “Seascape,” “Landscape” and “Escape” and “Trois Pièces pour quatre Flûtes en Ut” by Eugène Bozza, a French contemporary composer and violinist and a prolific composer of chamber music for wind instruments.

After intermission, the group will continue with “Urban Ragas” by Till Maclvor Meyn, which is reminiscent of ragas, the scales and modes of Indian music; “Quatuor de Flûtes” by Jean-Michel Damase; and “Steeley Pause” by Jennifer Higdon.

Bacchiocchi-Stewart is the owner and founder of The Flute Academy in Bergen County, N.J. She is principal flute with the Ridgewood Concert Band. Bacchiocchi-Stewart has served on the faculties of Union College, Peabody Institute of The Johns Hopkins University, FSU, Ithaca College and Schenectady County Community College. She teaches for the Marina Piccinini International Summer Master Classes at Peabody each summer.

Fisher-Deerberg is a well-respected freelance artist in Delaware, Pennsylvania and New Jersey and has performed in a wide variety of instrumental ensembles in the U.S. and Germany. She has taught flute for more than 28 years and has been on the faculty of Westminster Conservatory in Princeton, N.J., since 2005. Fisher-Deerberg is the principal flutist of the Bravura Philharmonic Orchestra.

Meyer recently took second place in the 2015 Myrna Brown Competition in Dallas and is currently a listed substitute for many regional orchestras, including the Delaware Symphony, Opera Philadelphia and the Allentown Symphony. She also maintains a private studio out of her home. She is a founding member of the Lyra Ensemble.

Varga performs as a soloist, chamber musician and orchestra member throughout the Philadelphia area. She teaches flute at Settlement Music School, Community College of Philadelphia and Friends’ Central School and maintains a private flute studio. Varga’s recently released CD, “Silver Tunes: Music for Flute and Organ,” includes world-premiere recordings of music by American composers Lowell Liebermann and Augusta Read Thomas. Her articles on music have appeared in The Philadelphia Inquirer and elsewhere.

GOP Governor Supports Fracking Ban in MD! CCAN Statement PDF Print E-mail

ANNAPOLIS, MD -- Today, Republican Governor Larry Hogan of Maryland yielded to overwhelming scientific data and voter support by giving his support to a statutory ban on hydraulic fracking for gas in the state. He made the announcement at a press conference joined by Maryland Senator Bobby Zirkin, the lead sponsor of Senate Bill 740. The bill would place a statewide ban on the drilling practice. Hogan’s announcement almost certainly assures that a fracking ban will become law in the state. The House of Delegates passed a fracking ban bill last week with bipartisan support, and the Senate could now do the same next week. Maryland would then become the first state in the country to ban fracking by statute.


Mike Tidwell, Executive Director of the Chesapeake Climate Action Network, stated:


"Governor Hogan's decision to support a permanent fracking ban in Maryland has created a day of historic importance for the entire nation. Hogan has joined a statewide bipartisan effort to prevent this dangerous drilling technology from ever polluting Maryland’s water, air, climate, and childhood health. In short, he has done the right thing. Most importantly, on climate change, Maryland is now poised to keep a dangerous pool of fossil fuels in the ground forever. Scientists say this is what states across America and countries around the world need to do to solve global warming. Instead of fracking, we need more solar energy. Instead of coal, we need wind power. Instead of oil, we need electric cars. Larry Hogan just took a big step for Maryland and the nation in moving us toward that goal."
