Kathryn Koscho only needed
to find two things before she
decided to go to the Music
Teachers National Association
chamber music convention.
The two other musicians who
would go with her.
Koscho, a senior music major,
first read about the competition -
which will be held in Los Angeles
in March - 16 months ago.
When Koscho, a pianist,
found two other music majors -
clarinet player Erin Hill and violin
player Erin Cosby - with the same
goal, the Saint Cecilia Trio was

Los Angeles became reality in
January when they beat other
Midwestern ensembles in a
regional competition in Minot,
N.D. The trio won the state com
petition in October.
But the three students are no
longer satisfied with just taking
part in the final competition
March 23.
We can be proud ot the way
we play,” Cosby said. “But we
want to win. That’s our goal.”
Mark Clinton, an assistant
piano professor who coaches the
trio, said the group will be
extremely competitive in Los
Although several graduate
ensembles will take part in the
Los Angeles competition, he said,
the three students are good
enough to compete with any of the
other six groups from across the
nation that will perform.
“My students play like profes
sionals,” he said. “It is like they
play with one mind instead of
In preparation for the final, the
trio will hold a concert Sunday at
6:45 p.m. in Westbrook Recital
The program, including works
by Khachaturian, Milhaud,
Hoover and Vanhal, is the one the
group will perform in Los
Clinton said the concert is an
opportunity for the trio to play
under the pressure of an audience.
“Every time they perform in
front of people, it becomes easier
for them to play the program the
next time,” he said.
Clinton said that regardless of
the results in Los Angeles, he
enjoyed working with the trio.

ASUN runoff
election gets
mixed views
■ Many say a close vote
was expected because of
the parties’ qualifications.
By Kim Sweet
Staff writer
Two qualified parties and an
onslaught of election activities made
the results of ASUN’s Wednesday
election not too surprising, some stu
dents said.
A day after the ASUN Electoral
Commission announced that a runoff
election will take place after neither
executive ticket received enough
I votes to declare a winner, some stu
dents said they were not surprised by
the results.
Others said they were not even
aware of what they were.
“I knew it was going to be close,”
said Jeremy Rieff, a senior business
management major who voted in the

said they were unaware of the election
Dorsey said he never voted after
putting it off all day. After hearing
about the results, he said he had
regrets about not participating in the
It was pretty close - I wish I
would have,” the freshman general
studies major said.
Kara Selk, a senior sociology and
Spanish major, said she participated
in student government elections for
i the first time in her four years at the
university because of the campaign
Selk said she noticed an increase
in campaigning by both parties.
“I never saw it pushed like they
did this year,” she said.
ASUN Senator Chelsy Harris said
both parties knew there was a poten
tial for the election to be tight, and that
is what resulted in the intensive cam
paign efforts.
“Because it has been two really
involved candidates, we knew it was
going to be close,” Harris said.
Harris said she was surprised by
the decrease in voter turnout com
pared to last year’s election because of
increased campaign activity. Of eligi
ble voters, 13.2 percent voted this year
compared to 13.5 percent in 1998.

Many of the students saw dim
prospects for Wednesday’s runoff.
Wilhelmi said that despite efforts
both parties will take to draw stu
dents, it will be hard to recruit new

might vote,” she said. “I don’t think it
will be dramatic, though.”
The absence of senatorial races in

from their college will also have a
negative impact on the election day
