Colson will perform the New York premiere of composer Poul Ruders' De Profoundis for two pianos and percussion, which Colson has recorded with the piano duo Quattro Mani.

Toilet Paper Thief and Vandal Sought
Someone with a strange sense of what is fun to steal and destroy has stolen toilet paper and vandalized 150 dispensers on campus. Tehama Hall, O'Connell Technology Center, Meriam Library, Holt Hall, and temporary building restrooms have been wiped out, according to Don Sleeper, custodial manager and support services, Facility Management and Services. The crimes occurred the last week of October through Nov. 14. Sleeper estimates the labor costs for repairing the damage to be $4,000. There is a videotape of a suspect filmed in the library; someone walked in with a frame backpack and exited with the pack stuffed with toilet paper-shaped objects. Please report any suspicious activity to Sleeper at x6222.
