The URI! Recital
Sunday, April 29, 2001 3:00 PM
Squires Recital Salon

Following five years of work and fifteen months of hype, the URI! Recital is the most anticipated event in the history of mankind. With ten original compositions performed by twenty-three musicians in a room that holds two-hundred and fifty-two people, the URI! Recital will be the biggest ninety minutes of your lifetime.

Featuring past and present MVs doing all sorts of wild and crazy things: Dave Ball, Philip Barbie, Chris Booher, Kelley Corbett, Dave Day, Scott Elliott, Chris Fraker as "Doobie", Tim Galyen, Abby Gray, Kristi Kirby, Christy Kull, Erin Lawson, Julia Mays, Jason Mirick, Wythe Newberry, Rosie Pereira, Jonathan Shachter, Anna Spellerberg, Joe Tornello, Carly Williams, and Jaime Williams, with special guest, John Schurman, as Audience Member #24.

Since it's the halfway point to a long musical weekend, you can pre-game by attending Peter Schatz's senior trumpet recital on Saturday afternoon, and the New River Valley Symphony concert Saturday night. Cool down after the recital with a faculty concert Sunday night, and the VT Brass Ensemble Monday night. Attending this recital will aid in the liberation of starving musicians all over the world.

Co-sponsored by "Hubcap" and Delta Mu, the non-service music fraternity.

"I would have graduated a long time ago, but I wanted to stick around just for this recital." - Joe Tornella

"I'd endorse your recital, but I don't think anyone remembers who I am anymore." - Matt Hackwerth

"Brian Uri! puts the 'Asian' into every 'occasion'." - Chris Lee

"This recital is going to Make a World of Difference." - Ben Nelsin

I abused multiple listservs to get the broadest dissemination for my undergraduate recital.

Dear Mr. Uri,

Please accept Elizabeth's Practica Musica file. I was supposed to send it for her this morning when I woke up b/c she did not know how to do it herself. I didn't wake up till 8:30. I am so sorry about the late sending.

Attachment Converted: "D:\Temp\Attach\camacho El132855.stu"

I totally accepted this late submission even though Elizabeth should have known how to submit her own file in the LAST WEEK OF THE SEMESTER. This is probably why I got such great evaluations on my ear-training / sight-singing class.

I am not making any recommendations (not allowed to do that) but I think from a personal point of view that your cheapest and least time consuming route maybe throwing more physical memory at the problem. You are currently only running 4GB. Total slots = 6. Believe that it is only using 2. (Unsure of this without doing a physical check).

Thanks,

There was a time when our work project had amazing onsite system administrators who would proactively identify problems and work with us to correct them before they affected the end users. Within five years, they had all been replaced by entry level staff who thought that racks only occurred on women and in dishwashers. Also, 4 GB of RAM seems like a rather small allotment for a webserver serving the entire Department of Defense.
