After accepting an invitation to be a part of the regional spelling bee, TCU's College of Education will join the Fort Worth Star-Telegram to co-host the Star-Telegram Regional Championship Spelling Bee.
Mary Patton, dean of the College of Education, said the Star-Telegram invited TCU to participate, and the university accepted the offer.
"When we were approached with it, we were very excited about it," Patton said. "We think this is one way to support our young readers and writers and spellers in the state."
Several TCU students' music compositions were chosen by the Fort Worth Contemporary Music Fund and performed at Steinway Hall during the nonprofit performing arts organization's first "Call For Scores" concert.
According to a press release issued by the FWCMF, the concert was a part of the Steinway Chamber Music Concert Series and was held March 18 at Steinway Hall in Fort Worth. TCU pianist Eduardo Rojas, a piano performance graduate student, and Katharine Steffens, a voice performance graduate student, were scheduled to perform the chosen composed music.
