Ensemble Passes Baton to New Conductor

Worth Noting

Most Cited

Two University faculty members are among the most cited in their fields.

According to Essential Science Indicator's list of cited papers, the most highly cited paper in the field of psychology and psychiatry was written by Dante Cicchetti, director of Mt. Hope Family Center and professor of psychology, psychiatry, and pediatrics. The paper, published in the May/June 2001 issue of Child Development, is a critical analysis of resilience, the process of positive adaptation despite experiences of adversity.

James Brickley, Gleason Professor of Business Administration and professor of economics and management and of finance in the Simon School, was listed as one of the top 100 most-cited authors in finance-related literature over the past 25 years by Financial Management.

When the Eastman Wind Ensemble marked its 50th anniversary this year, it also marked the passing of the baton from 37-year conductor Donald Hunsberger to Mark Scatterday '89E (DMA).

Following a nationwide search, Scatterday, formerly the chair of the music department at Cornell as well as one of the principal conductors of the contemporary music group Ensemble X, was chosen to lead the groundbreaking student group.

"Finding someone with the experience, talent, and skill to take the helm of one of the world's finest wind ensembles was no easy task," said Eastman Director and Dean James Undercofler. "Mark Scatterday is a tremendous choice and the ideal person to lead the wind ensemble into the 21st century."

Hunsberger said the ensemble will be in good hands. "He is an excellent conductor with warm communication skills. His musical knowledge ranges from early ensemble music to premieres of some of America's finest composers."

The Eastman Wind Ensemble was founded in 1952 by then conductor Frederick Fennell, and it was considered the first of its kind. Still one of the country's preeminent ensembles, the group celebrated its 50th anniversary with a gala concert and a four-day conference in February that featured many former players as well as wind ensemble professionals from around the country.
