Jazz 'n' Wings with The Les Sabina Septet at St. Bonaventure University

7 p.m. Thursday, March 8, at the Rathskeller on campus: Jazz 'n' Wings with The Les Sabina Septet.  Outside of the classroom, Sabina is an award-winning composer and accomplished saxophonist. He and his septet, some of the best jazz musicians in the region, will play contemporary jazz as chicken wings are served up, courtesy of the Department of Visual and Performing Arts.

The Martine Performing Arts Series is funded by a grant from the James J. Martine Faculty Development Endowment. Named after a longtime former English professor, the endowment funds activities designed to improve the quality of teaching and learning within the core curriculum at St. Bonaventure. 

The series expands the arts curriculum beyond the classroom walls, said Sabina, offering students a convenient, no-cost way to experience a variety of performing arts genres. Faculty in the Department of Visual and Performing Arts select the artists, choosing performances that complement the arts curriculum at SBU. 

All performances are free for St. Bonaventure University students, faculty and staff. The series is open to the public as well, although general-public tickets are limited and there is a nominal per-person fee of $5 for each event held at the Quick Center. For ticket information, call the Quick Center Box Office at 716-375-2494.

Top 10 site for Steelhead Fishing

Cattaraugus Creek has been listed in the top 10 sites for Steelhead Fishing (rainbow trout fishing) by 2 outdoor magazines. Steelhead Trout AKA Rainbow trout are very similar to Salmon in both taste and habits. Unlike other areas of the United States, our native Rainbow trout (Steelhead Trout) spend a majority of time in Lake Erie a freshwater lake and spawn in the Cattaraugus Creek and other tributaries.

The following is from the New York State Dept. of Environmental Conservation's article "Steelhead Fishing in Lake Erie Tributaries"

Lake Erie's tributary streams, both big and small, receive an annual run of migratory rainbow trout called "steelhead." From October through April, thousands of steelhead ascend New York's Lake Erie tributaries on their mission to spawn. Excellent fishing opportunities await any angler who wishes to try their hand at steelhead fishing. Between the acrobatic leaps, long drag-screaming runs and rod quaking head shakes, the fight of an early run steelhead is a truly exhilarating experience.
