Cellist Zlatomir Fung is only 15 years old, but he has the musical resume of a performer far beyond his years. Fung won Kalamazoo’s renowned Stulberg International String Competition last November, and his talents have taken him from Carnegie Hall to Portugal. He returns this Sunday to perform Schumann’s Cello Concerto with the Kalamazoo Junior Symphony Orchestra. The concert is billed as a celebration of Stulberg to commemorate the competition’s 40th anniversary.

When Saturday Night Live went on the air 40 years ago, few would have guessed how many of the cast members would go on to become household names. But you've probably never heard of Edie Baskin and Mary Ellen Matthews. They're the official photographers on Saturday Night Live and their combined careers have spanned the life of the show. A collection of their work has been published to coincide with this year's anniversary broadcast on Sunday.
