Formed by pianist, Joy Cline Phinney, the Cline, Feldman, Mulvey Trio is a dynamic union of musicians. Phinney, flutist Vanessa Breault Mulvey, and cellist Emmanuel Feldman first met as students at New England Conservatory of Music and have since created personal friendships and professional collaborations.
With degrees in piano performance/ensemble arts from The Juilliard School and Peabody Institute at Johns Hopkins University, Joy Cline Phinney embarked upon a concert career that has included a Carnegie Hall debut and acclaimed performances in solo and chamber music recitals across the United States and Europe. She has collaborated in chamber music concerts, recording projects, and radio and television programs with members of the Boston Symphony Orchestra, New York Philharmonic, Cleveland Orchestra, Metropolitan Opera Orchestra, among others.
Emmanuel Feldman has emerged as one of the most innovative cellists of his generation. He has concertized and soloed throughout Europe and North America performing at venues which include Liszt Academy Budapest, Carnegie Hall, and Symphony Hall Boston and orchestras which include the Boston Pops, Nashville Chamber, Merrimack Valley Philharmonic and Boston Philharmonic. Feldman is on the cello faculty at New England Conservatory, Tufts University, has a busy private studio in the Boston area and is on the faculty of the summer Killington Music Festival and the Heifetz Institute.
Flutist Vanessa Breault Mulvey's "passion for music and musician health permeates both her playing and teaching." A graduate of the Crane School of Music at the State University of New York in Potsdam and the Cincinnati College-Conservatory of Music, Mulvey is Chair of the Woodwind and Brass Department at the nationally acclaimed Longy School of Music in Cambridge [MA], where she also teaches both flute and Body Mapping.

PLYMOUTH — The 2014 New Hampshire Water and Watershed Conference (NHWWC) will be held on Friday, March 21, at Plymouth State University. This year, the theme is Sustainability of New Hampshire's Water Resources.
Each year, the NHWWC provides current information about New Hampshire's water resources and related topics. Approximately 200 people are attending the event to hear a variety of talks and network with other people interested in our water resources. The 2014 agenda includes a morning plenary talk on the sustainability of New Hampshire's water resources. Throughout the day there will be informative sessions on a variety of topics and we will close the event with an afternoon wrap-up discussion where participants will be able to ask questions and share ideas about water and sustainability in New Hampshire.
Plymouth State University's Center for the Environment (CFE) hosts the event each year. Conference organizer and CFE's associate director June Hammond Rowan, said the conference provides the latest information about a critically important natural resource.
"Water resources are a vital part of New Hampshire's landscape and economy," Hammond Rowan said. "We have over 30 talks and more than a dozen posters presentations this year. Topics include land use planning for water resources; water and public health; integrating science and decision making; NH's water data; outreach, education, and citizen science; and climate change."
The conference also features a meeting of the Sustainable Water Resources Roundtable, a national organization focusing on advancing understanding of the nation's water resources and the development of tools for their sustainable management. This meeting allows participants a unique opportunity to hear from an influential group and gain perspective on how water resource issues in New Hampshire compare and relate to issues in other states.
Registration for the conference is open. For additional conference information, visit http://www.plymouth.edu/center-for-the-environment/2014-nh-water-watershed-conference/.

MEREDITH — Every year, public libraries around the country participate in Teen Tech Week, using it as an opportunity to highlight the wide variety of non-print resources that they have available for their youth patrons. This year, the Meredith Public Library will be celebrating Teen tech Week from March 11th to the 15th, with several fun and informative programs planned.
The Youth Services staff will be kicking the week off by hosting a Guitar Hero Power Hour on Tuesday, March 11, from 3:30 to 4:30 in the Function Room. The library will provide the game, 2 guitar controllers, a massive projector and screen, and surround sound, so all they're missing are some talented teenage rock stars. This program is for ages 10-18, and snacks will be provided.
Additionally, over the course of the week, teens and tweens are invited to participate in a challenge that's being called The QR Quest. Basically a high tech scavenger hunt, The QR Quest will be a fun way for teens to become familiar with their library. Quest Sheets will be available at both the main circulation desk and in the children's room, and will give clues to a series of locations or items within the library. Hidden near each location or item will be a QR code, which are small barcode-type symbols that can be scanned using a smartphone or other mobile device. And don't worry if you don't have a smartphone of your own, the library has an iPod Touch that you can borrow for the QR Quest. When scanned, the QR codes will display a simple question, which the participants will write the answer to on their Quest Sheet. Completed Quest Sheets can then be turned in at the children's room desk, where the participants will receive a sweet reward, and be entered for a chance to win a Kindle e-reader.
And while you're at the library, don't forget that the MPL is now hosting two different Minecraft servers. If you have Minecraft on your home computer, you can access their remote server at minecraft.meredithlibrary.org. Or, you can go to the library and play on any of their public computers, from which you can access either the remote server or the local server. The remote server is set to Survival Mode, and the local server is set to Creative Mode, so you have a couple different ways to create and play.
