Russell Scarbrough, PhD, director of the Jazz Ensemble at Canisius, was commissioned to compose a piece to memorialize the lives of three Chicago teachers who died in the last year. The work, entitled Solaces, was featured on theĀ front page of the Chicago Tribune and in an Associated Press story featured in U.S. News and World Report. Scarbrough is going to Chicago next month to conduct the piece.
