MyCanisius Contest Winners & Portal Design Upgrades

MyCanisius photo contest winner

Remembrance

ITS and Web Services recently conducted a photo contest asking the Canisius community to share a picture of what ‘My Canisius’ means to them. The entries were voted on via facebook and the winning entry (see above) by Adam Swift, ’14 garnered 340+ likes. Adam’s photo will be the featured background image on the new portal login page beginning October 28 – Congratulations Adam!

The entry entitled, Remembrance, by Matt Lunghino, was the runner up, and in 3rd place was Canisius Sunset, by Christopher Lillis.

Canisius Sunset

The contest was run to highlight upgrades to the design of the MyCanisius login and home page. All portal content is still accessible in the same areas, but the colors and some design details were changed to bring the portal closer inline with the Canisius brand.

Stay tuned for your next chance to have your image showcased on the MyCanisius login page!

Canisius College Chorale Inaugurates Concert Series With Performance In St. Louis Church

The Canisius College Chorale, under the direction of Frank Scinta, will inaugurate its 2013 Sacred Spaces concert series with a program on Sunday, October 27 at 7:30 p.m. in St. Louis Church, Main and Edward Streets in downtown Buffalo.

The concert will feature works by Hogan,Vivaldi, Dawson, Ticheli and others. Admission is free. Sacred Spaces stems from an idea the choir proposed nine years ago to feature its music in some of Western New York’s most beautiful and acoustically resonant environments – namely, the sanctuaries of our area’s churches. As a result, the choir has visited nearly forty houses of worship with its repertoire of sacred and secular music spanning five centuries.

The entire Sacred Spaces Fall Series is as follows:

  • Sunday, October 27 at 7:30 p.m. at St. Louis Church, 790 Main Street, Buffalo, NY
  • Monday, November 11 at 7:30 p.m. at St. Benedict Church, 1317 Eggert Road, Amherst, NY
  • Sunday, November 17 at 5:00 p.m. at Corpus Christi Church, 199 Clark Street, Buffalo, NY
  • Monday, November 25 at 7:30 p.m. at Annunciation Church, 7580 Clinton Street, Elma, NY
  • Friday, December 6 at 7:30 p.m. at Montante Cultural Center, Canisius College, 2001 Main Street, Buffalo, NY
  • Sunday, December 8 at 7:00 p.m. at Church of St. Anthony, 160 Court Street, Buffalo, NY (with Camerata di San Antonio)
