They will be performing songs from it in a concert at Campbell Hall, presented by UCSB Arts & Lectures, on March 4th at 8pm. "There is a woman's real life, complex experiences, and layered understanding in these songs," says Cash. "I could not have written them ten years ago – not even close.” Born in Memphis, the eldest daughter of country musician Johnny Cash, Rosanne Cash has developed an iconic sound that transcends country, pop, rock, and blues, and both her voice and vision have captured American life for generations of fans. Cash, together with John Leventhal, her partner in life and music, summon powerful material rich with history, heartache, strength, and humanity in the new album that was created in the wake of a tsunami of survivor There is a woman’s stories.

I could as well as 21 top 40 hits, including eleven not have written them No. 1 singles. Cash is also an author whose four books include the bestselling memoir ten years ago – not Composed, which the Chicago Tribune called even close. "one of the best accounts of an American - Rosanne Cash life you'll likely ever read." Her essays have Rosanne Cash appeared in The New York Times, Rolling Stone, The Oxford-American, The Nation, and many more print and online publications. A new book, Bird On A Blade, blending the images of acclaimed artist Dan Rizzie with strands of lyrics from a variety of Cash's songs has just been published by UT Press. In addition to regular touring, Cash has partnered in programming collaborations with Carnegie Hall, Lincoln Center, San Francisco Jazz, Minnesota Orchestra, and The Library of Congress. Recently, she created a playlist that accompanies an exhibition at MoMA called Taking a Thread for a Walk. The exhibition is on textiles and fiber art from the MoMA’s collection. Cash drew from her album The River & The Thread, which received three Grammy Awards. Following The River & the Thread, Cashes new album, She Remembers Everything, is poetic, lush, and soulful, embracing women’s narratives and reckoning with our flawed and fragile world.

Professor Wins Fellowship for Book Project

M

ONA DAMLUJI, A PROFESSOR OF FILM AND MEDIA STUDIES WITH THE INTERDISCIPLINARY HUMANITIES CENTER AT UCSB, has been awarded an NEH Faculty Fellowship for her book project, Pipeline Cinema. The project is a history of the social and spatial entaglements between the oil industry and cinema culture during the mid-twentieth century. With Iraq at the center of the story, the monograph presents an emblematic case of corporate cultural sponsorship and its origins in documentary film history. Pipeline Cinema also tells the story of local film production and exhibition practices in Iraq that were inextricable from neocolonial networks of infrastructure planned and built in the name of national development to extract, transport, and refine crude oil, what Damluji calls “pipeline cinema.” This study of the movements and meanings of film production and distribution recognizes that the flows of oil media, much like oil itself, are not contained by political boundaries. Thus, the book presents a media history of the British-controlled Iraq Petroleum Company that draws together a range of historical publications, archival records, audio-visual materials, and oral histories in order to illuminate the corporation’s Mona Damluji complex global and regional entanglements from corporate headquarters in London to regional oil fields in Khuzestan, Iran. www.ihc.ucsb.edu.

Santa Barbara Symphony

Mozart, Tchaikovsky and Graffiti

I

Review by Daniel Kepl / VOICE

Photos by David Bazemore

T’S REFRESHING TO HAVE A GUEST CONDUCTOR POP BY FROM TIME TO TIME when the Santa Barbara Symphony’s regular Music and Artistic Director Nir Kabaretti is sharing his talents with other orchestras around the world. German conductor Christian Reif took the helm for the concert pair last weekend at the Granada Theatre and together with Cuban-American cellist Thomas Mesa gave subscribers fussy and fabulist alike, an evening of music as immaculate in execution as it was imaginative in programming design.

At the Center of Santa Barbara’s Cultural Conversation • www.VoiceSB.com

Mesa performed Tchaikovsky’s Variations on a Rococo Theme with measured elegance, warmth and style, humanizing what is too often seen as simply a virtuoso display piece. The concert opened with American composer Michael Gilbertson’s vibrant new masterpiece Graffiti: Concerto for Orchestra (2018) and after intermission, a Mozart doubleheader; the Overture to La Clemenza di Tito (1791) from the last year of the composer’s life and his Symphony No. 39 in E-flat Major, K. 543 (1788). It was not difficult at Saturday’s concert to hear the salutary influence of teachers John Corigliano, Christopher Rouse and Aaron Jay Kernis among others, in Michael Gilbertson’s coy and clever, highly imaginative and unquestionably virtuoso addition to an already elite niche of works featuring the virtuosity of an orchestra and it’s various sections, his Graffiti: Concerto for Orchestra (2018). A faculty member at the San Francisco Conservatory of Music and Resident Composer with the San Francisco Contemporary Music Players, Gilbertson’s pre-performance chat with the audience enabled a better understanding of its six intriguing sections: Eye-Opener, Spray, Slow Jam, Bubble Letters, Shake, and Again and Again – each descriptive of graffiti styles and color application techniques (spray cans) used by practitioners of this

distinctly urban and often beautifully censorious art form. The orchestra string sections positioned to suit maestro Reif’s tastes - basses and celli on his left behind the first violins; second violins on his right with violas nestled next to them – responded to his clearly understood conductorial entreaties with genuine delight and sparkling professional vigor; likewise, the entire orchestra. The first movement Eye-Opener was just that; shots of musical color, multitudinous catchy rhythms and a kaleidoscope of oddly familiar sound fragments that bundled together, offered a deliciously amorphous approximation of a myth called Americana. The second movement Spray sealed the deal so to speak, with an imagination orgy of colorful flashes and swoops of sound, including a particularly magical musical moment which seemed to recreate for this listener at least, a soundscape of fast-darting schools of fish, their colors changing – dark to silver - with each spontaneous turn and tarry in the music. Spectacular! Slow Jam shimmered in a casual jazzy sort of way, the orchestra and conductor relishing its subtle mood shifts, while Bubble Letters, with its lush and imaginative string slides, wind squeals, pointillist pizzicatos and assorted pithy musical humors was executed with the nonchalance characteristic of studio-initiated pros. The glorious Shake (as in spray paint cans), and the final movement Again and Again begged the question,

“are you dancing yet?” Sonic excitement from unexpected sources, percussion virtuosity that bolstered brass fanfares and high piccolo riffs – episodes, collages, rainbow colors and a big musical smile – that’s Graffiti. Next to Béla Bartók’s Concerto for Orchestra, a twentieth century masterpiece, German conductor Christian Rief Gilbertson’s equally movement in a manner pleasing to brilliant Graffiti will make an excellent the mind and ear, while also satisfying programming mate. the necessary virtuoso character of the Reif’s conducting is spacious and work. accommodating; no mincing or dicing After intermission, Mozart; a of musical episodes into unnecessarily mini-convocation of the master’s micro-managed pockets and drawers. Inspired by Mozart (what programming latter-day genius beginning with the Overture to La Clemenza di Tito (1791) savvy!) Tchaikovsky’s Variations on a Rococo Theme for Cello & Orchestra, Op. and concluding with the everlastingly ebullient Symphony No. 39 in E-flat 33 (1877) can be an uneven affair in the Major, K. 543 (1788). Stylistically hands of less cosmopolitan conductors spot-on in every detail of phrasing, and soloists. Contrary to a prevailing dynamic contrast and performance and rather manic interpretive blueprint practice, Reif nevertheless kept entirely much in fashion until recently, cellist out of the way, his rehearsals having Thomas Mesa gave one of the most shaped all he wanted to say about elegantly delineated interpretations these two works. The Santa Barbara of the work in this listener’s memory, Symphony acknowledged the maestro’s the conflation of languid conducting, compliment and played these two works mannered soloist and an orchestra with lighthearted delicacy and intuitive ebbing with every interpretive nuance finesse. and flow from Reif, offered exquisite insight into the fragile classical Daniel Kepl has been writing music, theatre, and dance reviews for Santa model upon which the work is based.

Review by Robert F. Adams, Special to VOICE

ORRALLING A BALLROOM FULL OF SUPPORTERS FOR A ROMANTIC SONGFILLED EXTRAVAGANZA on Valentine’s Day, Opera Santa Barbara’s black-tie Gala benefit brought out high fashions that sparkled under romantic ultra-red lighting in the Four Seasons Resort The Biltmore Santa Barbara’s ballroom. The evening rolled out with a cocktail reception on a brick-lined terrace followed by a warm welcome from Board Chair Joan Rutkowski. Participants soon found themselves seated at elaborately set tables complete with Cupid imagery on the name cards... an exciting run-up to OSB’s upcoming production of Il Postino. Composed by Daniel Catán with a story about the Chilean poet Pablo Neruda, Il Postino will be the company’s first opera sung in Spanish on March 7th and 8th athte Lobero Theatre. As the elegant multi-course dinner was served, Sandra Urquhart offered an extensive tribute to the tireless achievements of Sarah and Roger Chrisman, including historical discussions of their involvement helping to steer the company into a successful cultural institution for over 25 seasons. Performances on the main dance floor included Chrisman Studio Artists soprano Julia Metzler, mezzo-soprano Kelly Guerra, tenor Chandler Johnson, and baritone John Allen Nelson in a touching version of the classic Tonight from West Side Story, followed by soprano Sarah Vautour, in a splendid floor-length blue gown, with a spirited Glitter and Be Gay from Leonard Bernstein’s Candide. Soprano Anya Matanovic followed with a colorful version of Sempre Libera from Verdi’s La Traviata. A stirring rendition of Nessun Dorma from tenor Joshua Wheeker and capped off with Julia Metzler’s rich interpretation of Somewhere, also from West Side Story, anchored the 4 program. Interspersed throughout the evening, these artists framed the artistic aspirations of opera company, all staged by the accomplished director Crystal Manich, with effervescent accompaniment from Tim Accurso on the grand piano. Artistic Director Kostis Protopapas arrived at the podium to introduce the staff and gala committee, sharing, “As a company, we get more done, with less money…. I am immensely grateful for the Board and staff for allowing the company to produce unique, compelling, and authentic productions.” A direct call for donations followed, as financial support on an ongoing basis is a cornerstone, not only to mount the company’s productions, but to carry out a wide net of community outreach and educational programs. Starting out with a generous $50,000 matching-grant challenge, the attendees raised over $240,000 toward operating support. The evening’s proceeds are a reflection of the deep level of cultural effectiveness that the Opera company has provided for the 9 Santa Barbara cultural arena. The well-organized Gala Committee included Barbara Burger, Joan Rutkowski, Steven Sharpe, Carol Vernon, and Joann Younger. Delicious wines were provided by Section Wines from Santa Barbara County. The passionate staff on hand included Nina Dunbar, Development Director; Joyce Familara, Director of Marketing; Zach Mendez, Director of Operations; Tim Accurso, Principal Pianist and Music Administrator; Lex Benes, Education & Community Engagement Manager; and Laura Teague, Finance Director. DJ Gavin Roy concluded the celebratory evening with dance tunes that ranged from Motown hits and pop classics to contemporary nightclub beats as celebrants danced late into the evening. This was a night that celebrated artistic possibilities and the generous support that sustains this thriving opera company. 1 Il Postino Star Daniel Montenegro with Stage Director Crystal Manich, and Artistic & General Director Kostis Protopapas 2 The Chrisman Studio Artists with OSB Board Chair & Principal Pianist.

Go Red Luncheon

Unfortunately I was unable to attend the American Heart Associations Go Red for Women's luncheon, but at least 500 people did make it. This is a subject that is important to me as I've had my own experience with it. Cardiovascular disease is the number one cause of death in women. Denise Sanford, the chair of the event for 2020 American Heart Association Greater Central Coast Division Team: Danielle told me that "our goal Sanchez, Kerstin Caujolle, Liz Faris, Monica Merryman, Rebecca Mendoza, this year is designed Katie Beck, and Angela Miller-Bevan to raise awareness about heart disease. One in three women living have some form of cardiovascular disease." Pretty scary statistics! But she added that about 80 percent of cardiac events could be prevented. This luncheon celebrated survivors of the disease. Among the speakers were Patty Swenson and local cyclist John Hyde. Go Red for Women raised more than $100,000 to support lifesaving cardiovascular research and education.

HEN AN ENVELOP EVER ARRIVED with the return address of the late Leighton Wilkies, it was always opened with great excitement. I knew there would be an invitation to one of Adele Wilkie's wonderful parties in there. Her Fiesta galas were fantastic. Her small dinner parties were superb. That was Yesterday. For Today there is the same thrill when one of the same envelopes arrived. Bonnie Wilkie Henricks is carrying on her late mother's tradition with fabulous style. Bonnie loves Valentines Day and this year's elaborate invitation invited for a Valentine Tea Party. And Valentines it was, all pink and red. Only the valet parkers wore black. Needless to say, guests dressed for the occasion. Bonnie wore soft pink and the reddest outfit honors have to go to Hania Dining room fountain in center Talmadge. She was wearing the brightest Virginia Vanocur and Hania Talmadge red silk neck to toe. She was rivaled by the red of host Jon Henricks' red hunt jacket. Knowing that there would be umbrella tables covered with flowers out on the terraces overlooking the perfectly clipped English mansion style gardens, some of the women like Ginnie Hunter wore big hats. Doris Meeved wore a hat made of gold leather that couldn't help with sun protection but certainly was chic. Those of us who chose to avoid the sun found places in the library and dining room. I opted for the dining room that holds so many memories for me. That's where the lovely party Adele hosted for my daughter Tracey before her marriage was held. The highlight of this room is a huge round table with a fountain in the center that has a tall nymph coming out of center. She looks like she's dancing to the music of the flowing water. This party is always special because you do things like making Valentines and also one sees friends they don't get to see that often. As always the super talented Marina Drasnin was busily Marina Drasnin and hostess supervising the Valentine making project. Bonnie Henricks Among those I had a chance to catch up with were Virginia Vanocur, Daphne Ireland, Wendy Yager (all their parents were frequent guests at those Yesterday Wilkie parties), Geneviève Antonow, Colleen Thornberg, and Dora Stampfili. Everyone enjoyed meeting Stefania Hunt who has just moved into the home next to the Henricks. ❤

(But) both measures were still significantly below the levels recorded 20 years ago when the Sentiment Index reached a peak of 112.0 and the Expectations Index peaked at 108.6.” Part of the sluggishness in growth comes from the decline in manufacturing,

ETAIL SALES HAVE SLOWED MARKEDLY since the fall of 2019, with monthly overall sales up just 0.3 percent, and rising 3.9 percent annually without volatile gasoline prices. This means the U.S. is basically stuck in a slow growth mode, since more robust growth (+3 percent) would mean fie to six percent annual retail sales. That is worrisome to financial markets that have been pushing down bond yields as a hedge against a further slowing of economic activity. Consumers seem to remain optimistic, however, in part because they love the very low consumer prices, hence low inflation,

Why Are Retail Sales Struggling?

now in its fifth month of shrinkage. Employment in construction, mining, logging, and manufacturing industries ramped up sharply in Trump’s first two years in office, according to the latest figures released Friday by the Bureau of Labor Statistics, but overall output fell 0.3 in January, with the biggest negative impact coming from a weather-related four percent drop in utility usage. Motor vehicle and parts production did post a 2.4 percent increase last month, but even that was a little disappointing, with our forecast having called for a four percent rise. On the other hand, the mining sector was a positive surprise, posting a solid 1.2 percent increase, said Reuters ICAP update. Some blue-collar jobs have come back in Trump’s first two years, but not nearly as many as had been lost. Most of the jobs have been lost forever to automation or to sweat shops around the world. Crippled by the trade war and collapse in investment, job growth in those sectors slowed to a trickle over the past year. Meanwhile, job growth in the services-producing industries has actually strengthened, especially in health-care and in the quintessential pink-collar and whitecollar jobs, per Friday’s unemployment report. The bottom line is that most consumers can’t spend more because they don’t earn enough to spend more, since most have jobs in the lower-paying service sector. And their optimism is held in check by the fact that anything can happen over the coming months, as we have been saying, which is why interest rates are extremely low and could fall further. The 10-year bond yield slipped back to 1.59 percent Friday, which also means investors don’t have much faith in future stock market gains with the current S&P P/E ratio of 20. It is five points above its long term average of 15, and corporate profits are predicted to decline this year, as well.

Foodbank of SB County Pilots High School “Food Creativity Lab”

HE FOODBANK OF SANTA BARBARA COUNTY IS EXPANDING ITS AWARDWINNING CHILDREN’S HEALTH INITIATIVE, a series of programs collectively called “Feed the Future,” with a brand new “Food Creativity Lab” with a pilot beginning at Dos Pueblos High School on February 25th. During four, free, monthly sessions, high school students will explore the nutritional and health value of a variety of foods, engage in hands-on cooking, learn to plan and budget for meals, and practice food photography. Participants are being invited and will self-enroll in response to a video campaign via DP News, a weekly studentcreated news program shown in all Dos Pueblos classrooms once a week. Three faculty members of the FCL, each of whom will teach during every session, include Foodbank nutritional biologist and director of community education Lacey Baldiviez, PhD; chef Troy Peterson of Merci Montecito and Rosewood Miramar Beach; and Sansum Clinic registered-dietician Christina Archer, a member of the bariatric (weight loss) surgery team. “The Food Creativity Lab engages young adult students through their own natural curiosity and desire to express their creativity,” explained Baldiviez. “We are excited to help students build a deep connection with foods in their most basic, natural state, through the lenses of sensory experience, cooking skills, and the fascinating effects Lacey Baldiviez, Director of food has on our bodies. Students Community Education will walk away with the tools they need to make healthy eating decisions in a variety of life circumstances, particularly when facing limitations in terms of time, money, and resources.” With wisdom gained from the pilot program, the Foodbank plans to host Food Creativity Labs at all area high schools in coming years. Recipes and lessons in the first session may include chicken parmesan with zoodles (veggie spirals instead of pasta), portion size/ control, the role of fats in taste and health, and using seasonings to best health and taste effect.

The FCL is part of a countywide expansion of the Foodbank’s education programs for youth, through which the organization aims to end hunger by empowering and equipping children with skills they need to eat healthfully on any budget. As they move into adulthood, children’s skills learned now can positively affect future generations as well. Immediate impact from these programs can reach across generations when students take home fresh produce, new food knowledge and recipes to share with parents and grandparents. From January to May 2020, the Foodbank will also expand its existing children’s programs countywide, increasing service to youth in Carpinteria, Santa Barbara, Goleta, Isla Vista, Lompoc, Santa Maria, Cuyama, and Guadalupe. Food Literacy in Preschool (FLIP) will grow by 80 percent, with the addition of four new locations. FLIP introduces low-income preschoolers to a “Farmers Pick” fruit or veggie each month, with curriculum that includes picture book read-aloud, experiential learning, and tasting. Children take home a bag of the featured produce item with bilingual nutrition information and recipes to share with family. Two new sites of the acclaimed Kids Farmers Market (KFM) program will result in an eight percent increase. KFM provides K-6 students with nutrition education and basic cooking skills, with recipes like salads, slaws, cabbage tacos, salsas, and fruit parfaits, also featuring the Farmers Pick produce item of the month. Following their cooking and nutrition lesson, participants “shop” at a free mini-farmers market which includes several produce items, and take home about eight pounds of produce, along with recipes for the foods they prepared and ate during class. Kids Farmers Market will take place at 28 locations and will serve more than 1,800 unduplicated children throughout the county during the current school year. KFM is offered in partnership with after-school programs at Santa Maria Bonita School District, Goleta Union School District and Santa Barbara Unified School District; Boys & Girls Clubs in Santa Maria, Lompoc, Goleta, Carpinteria, and Santa Barbara; the Chumash Learning Center in Santa Ynez, People’s Self-Help Housing, the Housing Authority of the City of Santa Barbara, and more. Teens Love Cooking (TLC) will see a 150 percent increase with the addition of six new locations this year. TLC is the Foodbank’s middle-school program that includes more complex nutrition curriculum and advanced cooking skills, including safe knife practices and heat cooking methods. TLC students participate in seven weekly classes in which they learn about various aspects of nutrition (good fats, protein sources, etc.) and prepare a different cooked dish as part of a group. Dishes include culturally diverse recipes from Colombian lentils with rice to ratatouille to veggie chicken stir-fry. At the last class session, students prepare a family fiesta to share what they have learned with loved ones. All of the Foodbank’s children’s programs are taught by volunteer nutrition educators who are trained in curriculum from the Foodbank. The Foodbank of Santa Barbara County is transforming hunger into health by eliminating food insecurity through good nutrition and food literacy. The Foodbank provides nourishment and education through a network of more than 300 nonprofit community partners and more than 1,500 volunteers. In Santa Barbara County, one in four people receive food support from the Foodbank, which equates to more than 190,000 unduplicated people, 40 percent of whom are children. Last year, the Foodbank distributed 10 million pounds of food – nearly half of which was fresh produce.  www.foodbanksbc.org

Opening Reception February 29th at The Elverhoj Museum of History and Art

Rembrandt Prints Paired By Time and Place With a WWII Rescue

L

INKING PEOPLE, TIME, AND PLACE THOUGH ART WORK, an exhibition of Rembrandt prints will be paired with displays about the rescue of the Danish Jewish popution during WWII at the Elverhoj Museum of History and Art. The exhibit of 21 prints by Dutch Master Rembrandt and displays is titled “Legacy of Decency: Rembrandt, Jews, and Danes, and opens February 29th with a reception from 4 to 6pm. Refreshments will be served at the free event. The Legacy was created by neighbors who cared for, and about, one another. They became the link between artwork and action. “The series of small prints present a powerful message and encourage the viewer to get up close and engage,” said Elverhoj Executive Director and Exhibit Curator Esther Jacobsen Bates. “It’s exciting to bring works by an artist of this renown to Solvang.” The art is from the collection of Howard and Fran Berger, gift to Westmont Ridley-Tree Museum of Art. Rembrandt Harmenszoon van Rijn (1606-1669) was an innovative and prolific painter, printmaker, and draughtsman and is generally considered one of the greatest visual artists in the history of art. He lived and worked in Amsterdam, a city well-known for its welcoming spirit towards the thousands of Jewish migrants and refugees who survived the Inquisition and had been expelled from Spain and Portugal. Jews in the Synagogue, Etching and drypoint on laid paper, 1648 by Rembrandt Harmenszoon van Rijn The prints on view highlight the artist’s nuanced relationship with Amsterdam’s Jewish citizens. They are detailed and intimate, much like Rembrandt’s relationship with his subjects, many of whom were neighbors and friends. Rembrandt’s legacy as an etcher is characterized by the new and innovative techniques he introduced to printmaking. Rembrandt’s legacy of decency is displayed in his art as he added emotional and psychological depth to his subjects through expressive faces, dramatic body language, and bold use of shadow and light. The humanity Rembrandt Self-Portrait with Plumed Cap and expressed in his artwork continues to resonate today, nearly 400 Lowered Sabre, Etching on paper, 1634 years later. This concept of caring is also found in jantiloven – the by Rembrandt Harmenszoon van Rijn unofficial Danish law for “no one is better than the other.” The jantiloven principle that everyone is accepted and equal plays a key part in Danish culture and mentality as was exemplified by the remarkable story of the Danish WWII resistance. Posters from the Danish Museum of Resistance in Copenhagen tell about a few intense weeks in 1943 when a “living wall of people” raised up and rescued over 95 percent of the Jewish population in Denmark from the Holocaust. The Exhibition runs through May 24th. Exhibition programming will include a gallery talk, Rembrandt and His Jewish Neighbors, on March 14th with art professor Lisa DeBoer at 4pm. More exhibition programming can be found at Elverhoj.org. Elverhoj Museum of History and Art, located at 1624 Elverhoy Way in Solvang, is open Wed-Sun, 11am to 4pm. There is no charge for admission. Suggested donation is $5. For more infor, call 805-686-1211.
