First Friday, a concert held in Arcadia University’s castle, kicked off this year on October 5th. Stephen Kleiman (guitar and vocals), Chris Clark (bass), Edward Etkins (woodwind), and Samuel Heifetz (piano and First Fridays coordinator) performed with a relaxed professionalism that is to be admired. It is clear that with the amount of joy and passion in the room (both from the performers and audience) that First Fridays are here to stay at Arcadia and students, faculty, and staff alike are encouraged to come support the Music department.

Stockton NJ: William V. Frabizio, D.Mus.Arts.., 88 died June 5, 2018 at his home.



Dr. William V. Frabizio had established himself as an outstanding figure in the field of contemporary music. He was a composer, arranger, conductor, virtuoso trumpeter and big band leader, author, and artist teacher whose works and writings encompass a wide variety of compositions in virtually all fields of music, many of which are commissioned works. His many achievements had included network television recordings and personal appearances with many of the nation’s outstanding artists.



Over the years he had written for, conducted for, played for, toured with, and recorded with such personalities as Frank Sinatra, Della Reese, Diana Ross, Peggy Lee, Judy Garland, Count Basie, Woody Herman, Sammy Davis Jr., Ray Charles, Johnny Desmond, Bob Eberly, Eddie Arnold, Bobby Vinton, Jackie Gleason, Arthur Godfrey, Don Rickles, Rodney Dangerfield, and many others. In addition, he had a wealth of experience writing for and performing with symphony orchestras and symphonic bands.



Dr. Frabizio earned his undergraduate degree in Music Education from Temple University, a Master of Music degree from Rutgers University, and a Doctor of Musical Arts in Composition from Temple University. He was director of music at The Solebury School in New Hope, Pennsylvania; was a band director in the Pennsbury High Schools in Yardley, Pennsylvania; taught harmony and orchestration at Temple University in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania; was a professor at the New England Conservatory of Music in Boston, Massachusetts; and was Chair of the Music Department for forty-two years at Beaver College/Arcadia University in Glenside, Pennsylvania. In addition to his writings for jazz organizations, he had many works published for symphony orchestras, concert bands, choruses and a variety of chamber groups. His classical compositions have been featured on albums with some of the world’s most respected composers, and he was a frequent guest conductor of All-State, District, and Regional Bands and Orchestras consisting of high school and college students. He was often called upon as an adjudicator, consultant, and clinician on behalf of music programs, festivals, and competitions throughout the United States.



He served in the United States Army during the Korean War with the 3rd Armored Cavalry Regiment and was Commanding Officer of an armored reconnaissance unit along the Iron Curtain borders in Germany.
