Alum’s photo makes it in Sports Illustrated For a sports photographer, there are few things that top getting a shot published in the nation’s most recognized sports magazine. Many spend an entire career chasing that goal. Campbell University graduate Will Bratton did it at age 22. Bratton’s photo of a University of North Carolina lacrosse player going airborne while wrapped around a player from the University of Detroit was featured in the “Leading Off” photo

gallery - a full-page photo - of the Feb. 20 edition of Sports Illustrated, which features New York Knicks basketball phenom Jeremy Lin on the cover. Bratton, a 2011 Communications Studies graduate from Littleton, currently works as a freelance sports photographer, shooting mostly UNC sporting events for print publications and WRAL TV in Raleigh. He said the night he shot the photo, he knew he had a winner on his hands.

Admission is free. In recent years, Dr. Chaudoir has devoted most of his creative energy on exploring the technical possibilities of the instrument that most people only associate with the recorder they played as a child. Most often seen as the instrument played by grade school students, the recorder is an instrument with a rich history that is increasing in popularity among performers and composers alike. In Petite Suite and Five Pages, Dr. Chaudoir uses extended techniques, particularly multiphonics. Dr. Earnest Lamb, Chairman of the Performing and Fine Arts Department at Fayetteville State University, will premiere two pieces for cello solo. The Conversation and Stress were written for him by Campbell University composer Betty Wishart. Dr. Keith Dippre’s General Disturbance for piano and trumpet, will be performed by pianist Scott Marosek (Chairman of the Music Department at Methodist) and Tim Altman (Chairman of the Music Department at the University of North Carolina at Pembroke). Also performed on the concert will be Experience for string quartet by Betty Wishart and Leviathan, an electronic piece by Basil Carter of Campbell University.
