Bangor, Maine (PRWEB) May 06, 2015
From the endless void of outer space, to the depths of the world’s greatest oceans, U.S. Navy Captain and NASA Astronaut Christopher Cassidy has experienced the world in ways few others ever will. On Sunday, May 10, 2015 at 2 p.m. EDT, he takes on his next challenge as he seeks to inspire the next generation of Americans by delivering the keynote address at Husson Universitys 116th Annual Commencement Exercises at the Cross Insurance Center in Bangor, Maine.
Commencement is not just a ceremony that celebrates the years of hard work students have completed to earn a degree. It is milestone event that marks the point where newly-minted graduates leave the confines of our campus to enter the workplace and become productive members of society, says Husson University President Robert A. Clark, Ph.D. We look for keynote speakers who can inspire students to go on from Husson University to achieve greatness. Commander Cassidy certainly fits the bill. He is living proof that anyone, even a local youngster from Maine, can grow up and reach for the stars.
This is not the first time Cassidy has participated in educational events at Husson University. In 2013, he shared his thoughts on the importance of education with two groups of students from 14 schools in the greater Bangor area as part of an event at Husson Universitys Gracie Theatre. And last month, Cassidy was a featured guest on the Husson University student-produced television news program, NESCom Connections.
More Information About Commander Chris Cassidy
Commander Christopher J. Cassidy is a graduate of York High School in York, Maine. In 1993, he earned a Bachelor of Science degree in mathematics from the U.S. Naval Academy. Seven years later, he completed his Master of Science studies in ocean engineering from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT).
Prior to becoming an astronaut, Cassidy had a distinguished career in the U.S. Navy. He was a member of the U.S. Navy Seals for 10 years. Here, he received training in specialized tactics including long-range special reconnaissance; direct action building assaults; noncompliant ship-boardings; combat diving; underwater explosives; and a variety of air operations. He completed four six-month deployments: two to Afghanistan and two to the Mediterranean.
Cassidy logged more than 200 hours underwater as a pilot/navigator/mission commander of a two-man flooded submersible SEAL Delivery Vehicle an underwater craft that is launched and recovered from a submarine.
In recognition of his military service, Cassidy received two Bronze Stars and a Presidential Unit Citation including one Bronze Star for combat leadership service in Afghanistan.
He was selected for astronaut candidate training by NASA in May 2004. Completed in February 2006, Cassidys training included scientific and technical briefings, intensive instruction in shuttle and International Space Station systems, physiological training, T-38 flight training, and water and wilderness survival training. This initial training qualified him for various technical assignments within the Astronaut Office at NASA and future flight assignments as a mission specialist. From 2006 2008, Cassidy served as a capsule commander in Mission Control.
In 2009, he completed his first space flight, the STS-127, International Space Station Assembly Mission where he logged more than 376 hours in space, including more than 18 hours of extra-vehicular activity during three spacewalks.
On March 28, 2013, Cassidy lifted off for his second trip to the space station from Kazakhstan along with two Russian cosmonauts. The three crew members were the first to complete a trip to the space station in less than six hours. Previously, it took two days to rendezvous and dock at the space station.
During his NASA career, Cassidy has completed six spacewalks, totaling 31 hours and 14 minutes. He has spent a total of 182 days in space. He is recipient of NASAs Exceptional Achievement Medal.
The graduation ceremony will recognize individuals who have completed their degrees from Husson Universitys College of Business, College of Health and Education, New England School of Communications (NESCom), School of Pharmacy and the School of Science and Humanities.
The Cross Insurance Center is located at 515 Main Street in Bangor, Maine. Individuals traveling to graduation from outside the area who need help finding accommodations are encouraged to contact the Bangor Convention and Visitors Bureau at (207) 947-5205.
The commencement ceremony begins at 2:00 p.m. and takes approximately two hours to complete. Guests are encouraged to arrive at the Cross Insurance Center by 12:30 p.m. Early arrival is recommended to avoid traffic congestion and to obtain choice seating. Tickets are not required.

Individuals with special needs should call (207) 941-7129 or email greenj(at)husson.edu so Husson University can make the appropriate arrangements.

“Burlesque to Broadway” Takes Off in Musically Rich Off-Bway Premiere at Gramercy Theatre in New York City
New York, NY (PRWEB) January 28, 2014
NYCTourist.com is happy to announce that “Burlesque to Broadway” is making its way to New York City; this theatrical concert sheds new light on burlesque and proves why burlesque is still a staple in American entertainment.
In four-nights at the Gramercy Theatre, audiences will experience the remarkable impact of burlesque on musical tastes across a century. From the Great American Songbook to rat pack to rock ‘n roll, “Burlesque to Broadway” starring Quinn Lemley, shows how wide-ranging this impact has been… one of the many unexpected pleasures of this hard-charging show.
Produced by Live Nation, “Burlesque to Broadway” stars one of New York’s most well-liked vintage performers, Quinn Lemley, who leads a cast of four singer-dancers, all supported by an versatile 9-piece big band.
The theatrical concert’s Off-Broadway premiere at the Gramercy Theatre, 127 East 23rd Street, runs Wed to Sat February 5 to 8. All starting at 8pm.
An illuminating look at burlesque over many decades, then to now, “Burlesque to Broadway” proves why burlesque has never faded from the American entertainment landscape.
In liner notes for the show’s studio recording, which releases on February 5, the author and Wall Street Journal music columnist Will Friedwald exults that Lemley “brings to burlesque something it rarely if ever had before: great songs and first-class singing.” In fact he adds, “She has now made burlesque into a medium that is as enjoyable on an audible level as much as a visual one.”
“Burlesque to Broadway” features the singer-dancers Jessica Bare, Amanda Downey, Leslie McDonel, and Sarah Rolleston. The choreography is by David Eggers and Merete Muenter. Costumes are by Wendall Goings. Steve Rawlins provides the orchestrations. The show’s directing consultant is the Tony Award-winning director Joe Hardy. Leading the show’s 9-piece live band is music director Dan Micciche.
There are classics to be sure, but there are SURPRISES too — everything from blues-rock, and doo-wop, to swinging James Bond arrangements for songs that delve into feminine mystique, female empowerment, and the art of seduction.
Tickets are tantalizingly priced from $ 30 to $ 49, and VIP packages stacked with goodies for either $ 69 or $ 159.50. For tickets visit http://www.ticketmaster.com or http://www.burlesquetobroadway.com.
