* Milton Z. Tinker Memorial Concert Set for April 12

The University of Evansville Neu Chapel Society and the UE Chapter of the American Guild of Organists announce the Milton Z. Tinker Memorial Concert: Keeping the Memory Alive in the Minds of the Rising Generation to be held on Friday, April 12, at 7:00 p.m. in Neu Chapel.

The concert will feature University of Evansville organ and percussion students, North High School Concert Choir, Andrea Drury, conductor;  Joshua Academy Choir, Monte Skelton, conductor; and the Signature School String Orchestra, Becky Simpkins, conductor. Jeff Lyons, chief meteorologist for 14News, will serve as Master of Ceremonies.

Professor Milton Z. Tinker, in whose memory the concert will be performed, came to Evansville in 1867 and worked as superintendent of music in the Evansville schools for 47 years.  A much loved and respected teacher, Tinker created a rigorous vocal music curriculum in the Evansville schools. 

With the dedication of the Evansville Soldiers and Sailors Memorial Coliseum on Easter Sunday, April 8, 1917, the Evansville arts and education community began a weeklong festival—Fanfaronade—to raise funds to build a pipe organ as a memorial to Prof. Tinker in the new building. More than a thousand school children and their music teachers from all the city schools plus more than 25 community women’s organizations contributed their efforts to the cause.

During the Fanfaronade, the Evansville Courier proclaimed: “That the citizens of Evansville should unite in doing him honor, is but natural; that they should seek to keep his memory in the minds of the rising generation is but right.  The organ in the Coliseum, which will be known as the Tinker Memorial Organ, is but a fitting tribute [to] the man whose energy and talent have placed Evansville in the place she occupies today in the musical world.”

Two years later, the Milton Z. Tinker Memorial Organ, was dedicated on November 18, 1919, one day before the dedication of Evansville College. James Gillette, Municipal Organist, and Chair of the newly established Department of Music, played an organ concert to begin the College's opening Convocation.

The Milton Z. Tinker Memorial Concert is free and open to the public.

* Save Our Schools, Save Our Country and Save Your Family Inaugural Hesburgh Lecture Series

How did we get to the point where so many American schools struggle and yet many kids are busier than any time since World War II? Families race to soccer practices and scouts, wait in drop-off lines and at oboe lessons, and sit through recitals, while parents wonder how this is the fulfillment of the American dream. The inaugural Hesburgh Lecture set for Friday, April 12 at 7 p.m. in Eykamp Hall, Ridgway University Center, will address those questions.

Speaker Brian Collier will trace American education since the turn of the 20th century and show what has changed and what our predecessors did really well to raise “the greatest generation.” What lessons can be learned from the schools that trained humans to go to the moon, write novels, plays, and create television programming? Collier’s engaging lecture also promises to be funny and cause everyone to go home with ideas about how to change their own family structure to ensure their kids are getting the education they need to help re-shape America.

Collier holds a Ph.D. in American Indian History and the History of Education in America from Arizona State University. He teaches for the Alliance for Catholic Education and is a fellow in the Institute for Educational Initiatives. His research in education is at the intersection of where families and teachers can truly partner to take back their families, their schools, and their neighborhoods.

His historical research on Native people focuses on American Indian boarding schools and their legacy in the 20th century. Collier himself was a teacher at St. Catherine Indian School in Santa Fe before it closed its doors in 1998, and he learned a great deal about Native people and culture from that experience. Since then, he has studied the closure of Native American Catholic schools and Catholic education more broadly. Collier has written articles and book chapters on Native Americans, the American West, teaching in the American West, race relations, gender, and the Harlem Globetrotters.  His book titled The System: Education and America is forthcoming in May. This collaborative publication was written with Notre Dame undergraduates and Notre Dame colleagues Maria McKenna and Kevin Burke.

Evansville (12-17, 3-3 MVC) two took out of three from Bradley last weekend in MVC play, before splitting a pair of midweek games with UT Martin and Belmont.  The Aces defeated the Skyhawks, 6-1, at Braun Stadium Tuesday, before falling, 3-1, to the Bruins Wednesday night in Nashville, Tenn.  Senior Jason Hockemeyer went 5-for-7 with a double and an RBI in the pair of non-conference contests and junior Cole Isom tossed 8.0 innings, allowing just one run on six hits en route to earning the win in Tuesday’s matchup with UTM.

UE enters the weekend series hitting .276 as a team with 28 doubles, six triples and seven home runs for a .342 slugging percentage.  Evansville is reaching base at a .373 clip and is 25-for-39 in the stolen base department.  Defensively, the Aces boast a .973 fielding percentage.

Evansville’s pitching staff has combined for a 4.19 ERA this season and senior Kyle Lloyd and sophomore Kyle Freeland have been two of the best pitchers in the Valley so far this season.

Freeland, who is scheduled to start Friday, is 3-4 this year with a 2.64 ERA, a mark that ranks seventh in the league.  The sophomore lefty is second in the MVC in with 47.2 innings pitched and ranks third in the league with 45 strikeouts around just 11 walks.  Lloyd is slated to start Saturday for the Aces and owns a 4-2 record and ranks fourth in the MVC with a 2.22 ERA.  In addition, the senior righty leads the conference with 55 strikeouts and 48.2 innings pitched, and is holding opposing hitters to a .217 batting average.  Redshirt junior Sam Johns is 1-1 on the season with a 4.83 ERA and 18 strikeouts in 31.2 innings over six starts, and is scheduled to start the series finale Sunday.  Out of the bullpen, senior Jake Naumann leads the MVC with five saves and owns a 3.12 ERA with seven strikeouts in his 10 relief appearances.

Southern Illinois (13-14, 0-3 MVC) has won its last four games, as the Salukis swept Eastern Kentucky in a non-conference series last weekend and topped Murray State, 7-2, in a midweek contest Tuesday in Carbondale, Ill.  SIU was swept by Indiana State in its MVC-opening series two weeks ago in Terre Haute, Ind.

Southern Illinois enters the weekend hitting .256 as a team with 51 doubles, a triple and 10 round-trippers for a .348 slugging percentage.  The Salukis own a .347 on-base percentage and have stolen 16 bases in 22 chances.  In the field, SIU has committed 34 errors for a .967 fielding percentage.

Individually, Matt Jones leads Southern Illinois with a .339 batting average and 23 RBI.  Jones has legged out seven doubles, is tied for the team lead with two home runs and is getting on base at a .390 clip.  Jake Welch is hitting .302 with 16 RBI and is the only other Saluki hitting over the .300 mark.  Austin Montgomery leads SIU with 10 doubles and is hitting .291, while Ryan Casillas sports a .284 average with two homers and 12 RBI.

Southern Illinois ranks third in the Valley with a 3.32 team ERA and is holding opponents to a .228 batting average.  Cody Forsythe is slated to start on Friday for the Salukis and leads the staff with a 2.55 ERA.  Forsythe is 1-1 on the season with 29 strikeouts in his seven previous starts.  Derek Fogel is 0-1 on the year with a 2.95 ERA and 16 strikeouts over 36.2 innings, and will get the ball on Saturday.  Out of the bullpen Todd Eaton has recorded four saves in 12 relief appearances, while Tyler Dray owns a paltry 1.08 ERA in his 10 appearances out of the bullpen.

Southern Illinois leads the all-time series, 93-55, and took two of three from the Aces last year in Carbondale.  The Salukis have won 14 of the last 17 meetings with UE and have won seven straight at Braun Stadium.
