Alisa Weilerstein’s Fragments, Chapter One

IN AN ACT OF COURAGE, sharing an artist/performer’s vulnerability and depth as she ventures beyond the parameters of classical music tradition, international cello virtuoso Alisa Weilerstein will open the U.S. Premiere of her new work, Fragments, Chapter One, at Campbell Hall on Friday, March 10th at 7pm, in a UCSB Arts & Lectures presentation.

A compilation of J. S. Bach’s solo cello suites (all 36

movements) along with 27 pieces commissioned from living composers, Fragments places Weilerstein’s depth and artistry at center. She arranged the entirety of the material into six one-hourlong chapters and will present and perform the works staged with sets and lighting reflecting the music, chapter, and various composers.

“I’m very happy to say that Fragments doesn’t really fit in any category. It’s solo cello music, but it is a piece of theatre,” Weilerstein shared in a preview video.

This project from the MacArthur Award-winning artist is co-commissioned by UCSB Arts & Lectures and is designed as a multi-year performance series.

“Weilerstein is a throwback to an earlier age of classical performers: not content merely to serve as a vessel for the composer’s wishes, she inhabits a piece fully and turns it to her own ends,” The New York Times wrote

During the performance, Weilerstein creates a space for performer, composer, and listener that is at once physically intimate and philosophically expansive.

Within each Chapter, individual movements from a single suite and a selection of new works are mindfully arranged into a new emotional arc, set within an atmosphere

of responsive lighting and scenic architecture. The music is performed without pause and a wholly original experience that empowers audiences to surrender to their senses emerges.

An aspect of the Fragments performance format that came to Weilerstein first is that the audience will not given a program prior to the performance.

“If we think music is the highest form of communication and transcends language and history, let’s really embrace that. Why do we have such a strong instinct to categorize what we see and hear, stuff that is irrelevant to the music? I don’t want people with their noses in their programs, wondering what is the [composer’s] race or ethnicity and history,” she explained in a early interview with Harvey Steiman for Seen and Heard International. “I think I listen more deeply to music without an introduction, without a context. I listen with a much more open mind to new music if I don’t know who the composer is. The project is not about who the composers are but what their music is actually saying.”

The 28 Fragments composers include: Andy Akiho, Johann Sebastian Bach, Courtney Bryan, Chen Yi, Alan Fletcher, Gabriela Lena Frank, Osvaldo Golijov, Joseph Hallman, Gabriel Kahane, Daniel Kidane, Thomas Larcher,

Steiman asked in detail about the process of ordering the fragments, even the movements of the Bach concertos. Weilerstein answered, “I liked putting the prelude at the end of No.1. It’s the most famous movement of any Bach cello suite. In that position it’s a summation, and it brings things full circle. That goes with how the set was constructed, the elements arranged in a circle around the cellist. From that point, honestly, it just flowed out. Constructing the arc became a very natural thing – relating the pieces harmonically and by tempo.”

She continued, “When I received these pieces, even after I had given every composer the same prompt, one of the joys was how very different they were from one another. Fragment 1 starts very quietly. Fragment 2 starts with a big slap in the face –the lights come up like I stuck my finger in an electric socket. I like the difference, and it reflects the nature of the suites.”

Alisa Weilerstein is one of the foremost cellists of our time. Known for her consummate artistry, emotional investment and rare interpretive depth, she was recognized with a MacArthur “Genius” Fellowship in 2011. Today her career is global in scope, taking her to the most prestigious international venues for solo recitals, chamber concerts, and concerto collaborations with all the preeminent conductors and orchestras worldwide.

In 2021, Weilerstein premiered Joan Tower’s new cello concerto, A New Day, at the Colorado Music Festival. The work was co-commissioned with

New Network Manager at Central Coast Climate Justice Network

CREATED IN 2018 AS A COMMUNITY RESPONSE to the disaster caused by the Thomas Fire and subsequent Montecito Debris Flow, The Central Coast Climate Justice Network (CCCJN) is a community partner organization that was created by the Central Coast Alliance for A Sustainable Economy (CAUSE). CCCJN seeks to create a grassroots movement that addresses social, economic, and environmental issues in Santa Barbara and Ventura counties. With over a dozen participating organizations from across the Central Coast, CCCJN continues to expand its environmental and social justice work and turned to Ana Rosa Rizo-Centino to become its new Network Manager.

“Environmental and climate justice demand a truly holistic approach that uplifts underrepresented people like me,” said Rizo-Centino. “As a young, working class, first-generation immigrant, and a queer woman of color, I belong to several demographics disproportionately affected by environmental and climate degradation. Also, as a mom, I am deeply committed to making sure that the next seven generations benefit from the uplifting work that we are able to do.”

Rizo-Centino also brings with her 20 years of leadership development focused on equity, inclusion, and intersectionality. She has worked nationwide, statewide, and locally on numerous social justice issues, such as environmental justice, LGBTQ+ issues, and ensuring access to clean drinking water. She was trained by labor and civil rights leader Dolores Huerta to conduct house meetings, which is a practice that is essential to the development of their grassroots movement. Having meetings in homes allows people who might otherwise be deterred by feeling unsafe in a government building, or lacking access to childcare. Translation services are also not provided during many

government meetings. A large part of the CCCJN mission is to ensure that language access is available to people in marginalized communities.

Their current mission is to create a movement that leads to the development of a Green New Deal, a systemic package that provides the funding, resources, and direction to assist communities in transitioning from fossil fuels to clean energy sources. One aspect of this New Deal that CCCJN emphasizes is that the Green New Deal will be inclusive.

“We have to center BIPOC voices because these are the voices most often not taken into account,” said Rizo-Centino. “These communities tend to make up the working class, and we have to make sure they what they need in the languages they need. There are a lot of people who look Latino but do not speak Spanish. MICOP (Mixteco/Indigena Community Project) is able to showcase what they bring to the network with language access.”

CCCJN’s work centers on communities that bear the greatest burden of climate change impacts, such as farm workers and Black, Indigenous, and People of Color communities. CCCJN is a collaboration between organizations and community leaders dedicated to a climate movement that holistically advances social, economic, racial, and environmental justice for Ventura and Santa Barbara Counties. This form of regional partnership creates a collective power that relies on a collaboratively designed charter and maintains a horizontal leadership model that emphasizes leadership from BIPOC and Working Class people. CCCJN’s members include member organizations that are active participants in regular meetings and ally organizations that support the CCCJN Network’s activities. CCCJN’s Current member organizations are 350 Santa Barbara, CAUSE, CEC, Future Leaders of America, Mixteco/Indigena Community Project (MICOP), Santa Ynez Band of Chumash Indians, Sierra Club Santa Barbara-Ventura Chapter, and UCSB Environmental and Climate Justice Hub. Current ally organizations: City of Santa Barbara, County of Santa Barbara, Environmental Defense Center, Los Padres Forest Watch, and The Fund for Santa Barbara.

$16 Million Awarded to Support Public Transportation Projects

PROJECTS IN SANTA BARBARA COUNTY RECEIVED $16 MILLION of a $2.5 billion fund from the California State Transportation Agency to fund 16 transit and passenger rail service projects statewide. This $16 million was awarded to Santa Barbara County Association of Governments in partnership with the City of Goleta to complete the Goleta Train Depot Project, and Los Angeles –San Diego – San Luis Obispo (LOSSAN) Rail Corridor Agency to address bluff erosion north of Gaviota State Beach.

“The state of California is making significant investments to bring much-need resources that strengthen infrastructure across the state to improve transportation options and enhance mobility throughout the state,” said Senator Monique Limón. “This marks a historic moment that the state has been able to provide additional investments to

support existing projects and I look forward to celebrating the completion of the Goleta Train Depot Project.”

$5.6 million of this funding has been dedicated toward the Goleta Train Depot project. This project plans to construct a new multi-modal train station at the existing AMTRAK platform on South La Patera Lane in Goleta with the intention of increasing rail ridership, reducing greenhouse emissions, and improving local transit connections to accommodate travel to and from the Santa Barbara Airport and UCSB. The project also intends to add new bicycle and pedestrian facilities, and to allow accommodation for additional train storage to support increased passenger service.

“The Goleta Train Depot project is a landmark project for our community and now one-step closer to completion with the $5.6 million in funding from the state,” said Marjie Kirn, executive director of the Santa Barbara County Association of Governments. “We look forward to celebrating the start of construction with the City of Goleta later this year.”

“We are thrilled to receive this wonderful news, said Jaime Valdez, Neighborhood Services Director. “Without this critical infusion of funding, the Goleta Train Depot was at risk of being stalled with none of the project benefits being realized until another source of funding was identified.”

When completed, the Train Depot will be a full-service multi-modal train station next to the existing Amtrak platform on South La Patera Lane. By creating a full-service station, the City hopes to increase train ridership, improve connections to bus transit, accommodate transit service to/from the Santa Barbara Airport and UCSB, and add new bicycle and pedestrian facilities. The total project budget is over $25 million. This includes the original $13 million in TIRCP funding the City received, the additional $5.56 million TIRCP funding, and City funds.

The additional $10.4 million has been dedicated to improving coastal resliency through slope stabilization as part of a collaboration between Union Pacific Railroad and the LOSSAN Rail Corridor Agency. Repairs will be made in areas north of Gaviota State Beach.

THE GOLETA POLICE DEPARTMENT IS JOINING THE E-BIKE MOVEMENT with the addition of a brand-new motor-assisted bicycle, or eBike, purchased by the City of Goleta. Costing approximately $4,000, the new e-bike will assist with patrols in areas that are inaccessible by police cruisers such as the Ellwood Bluffs, Lake Los Carneros, railroad tracks, city parks, Old Town, and large events such as the Lemon Festival and other parades.

“I have already had several positive interactions with the public on the bike and look forward to having many more,” said Community Relations Deputy Ehren Rauch. “Our plan is to eventually purchase more eBikes to provide better service to our community.”

Pacifica Graduate Institute Honors Local Black Leaders

ALANDMARK CELEBRATION WAS HOSTED BY PACIFICA GRADUATE INSTITUTE AND ITS ALUMNI ASSOCIATION in honor of the historical achievements of Black Americans on February 17th. The Association for the Study of African American Life and History selected the theme for this year to be “Black Resistance,” and they emphasized the message with a directive to: “Honor the Past, Embrace the Present, Celebrate the Future.”

“I am extremely proud of our Black students, faculty, alumni, Board of Trustees, and all of our people who have contributed to the illustrious history, growth, and success, not only of Pacifica Graduate Institute, but of our local community,” said Dr. Leonie H. Mattison, the first Black, female President & CEO of Pacifica. “I look forward to supporting, strengthening, and nourishing an equitable and inclusive

environment that promotes, respects, and encourages diversity in its fullest sense.”

As Black History Month ends, there are still reminders that must be acknowledged of the legacy of violence faced by Black people and people of color—most recently with the heartbreaking brutality against Tyre Nichols. There remains work to be done to address racism in the United States, which is why it is important to honor community members who carry the celebration of Blackness forward throughout the year.

This year’s honorees included many community members who have advocated for change, equity, and common understanding, including: Audrey Gamble; Connie Alexander; Sojourner Kincaid Rolle; James Joyce, III; Isaac Garrett; Jordan Killebrew; Lawanda Lyons-Pruitt; Wendy SimsMoten; Krystle Farmer Sieghart; Simone Akila Ruskamp; Leticia Forney Resch; and, Reverend Dr. Dave N.

Vitamin Angels Expands Global Reach V

SUCCESSFULLY EXPANDED THEIR MULTIPLE MICRONUTRIENT SUPPLEMENTATION (MMS), also known as prenatal vitamins and minerals, globally in 2022. They were able to reach over 71 million underserved pregnant women and children in at least 65 countries, including all 50 US states and Puerto Rico in 2022.

“One of our key focuses in 2022 was to expand the number and scope of our MMS programs globally, including within the US, and to help build consensus within the public health community around MMS,” said Howard B. Schiffer, Vitamin Angels Founder & President. “We made significant progress and there is still a lot more work to be done to ensure that every pregnant person in need has access to MMS.”

Their expansion allowed them to concentrate efforts on exploring the introduction of MMS for pregnant women in Indonesia, build an effective MMS supply strategy for countries in order to scale the global supply of MMS, and combat undernutrition of mothers and children in India in partnership with UNICEF. They plan to expand their services to double their impact and reach 140 millon women and children annually by 2033. www.vitaminangels.org

SB County Releases Climate Action Plan Draft

IN EFFORTS TO IMPROVE QUALITY OF LIFE AND PRIORITIZE SOCIAL EQUITY, the County of Santa Barbara’s Community Services department has released the draft for the 2030 Climate Action Plan (CAP) for public comment available online at countyofsb.org/oneclimate. The CAP was developed to reduce community carbon emissions by 50 percent by 2030, as directed by the Board of Supervisors. The CAP also outlines actions the County and community can take to improve walking and biking conditions, preserve and enhance open spaces, make buildings more efficient, improve air quality, and enhance energy resilience.

“Achieving a 50 percent reduction is very ambitious,” said Ashley Watkins, Sustainability Division Chief, “Departments across the County will be responsible for implementing specific actions but we won’t achieve our goals without strong participation from residents, local business and other stakeholders. The CAP isn’t just the County’s plan, it’s the community’s plan.”

The County will host three public workshops to provide the community with an opportunity to view the draft and engage with staff who are knowledgeable about the CAP. The workshops are an opportunity for the community to share their thoughts, points of concern, and local knowledge. The first workshop will take place on March 1st from 12:30pm-2pm in the Faulkner Gallery of the Santa Barbara Public Library at 40 E. Anapamu St. The second also takes place on March 1st, but is from 5pm-6:30pm in Shepard’s Hall of the Santa Maria Public Library at 421 S. McClelland St. The third workshop is completely virtual and is on March 7th from 12pm–1pm. Registration for the Zoom and information about all events can be found at countyofsb.org/oneclimate.

These workshops will cover the context and history of the Climate Action Plan, key actions and strategies, and provide instruction on how to provide comment on the CAP.

Out of the Blue

Diets rich in food from the ocean and freshwater sources can help address both nutritional and environmental challenges

BLUE FOODS — those that come from the ocean or freshwater environments — have tremendous potential to help address several global challenges. With careful implementation of policies that leverage these foods, nations could get a boost on efforts to reduce nutritional deficits, lower disease risk, decrease greenhouse gas emissions, and ensure resilience in the face of climate change.

So say the team of experts at Blue Food Assessment, an international collaboration of scientists whose focus has been on the role of aquatic foods in global food systems. In a paper published recently in the journal Nature, the scientists tease out the global-scale benefits of adding more blue food to the world’s diet.

“Even though people around the world depend on and enjoy seafood, the potential for these blue foods to benefit people and the environment remains underappreciated,” said UC Santa Barbara marine ecologist Ben Halpern, director of the National Center for Ecological Analysis & Synthesis and a member of the team. “With this work, we bring attention to these many possibilities and the transformative benefit that blue foods can have for people’s lives and the environments in which they live.”

Built on the landmark Blue Food Assessment, this study synthesizes the assessment’s findings and translates them across four policy objectives related to nutrition, health, environment, and livelihoods. The research team reports that aquatic foods are rich in many essential nutrients, particularly vitamin B12 and omega-3 fatty acids, deficiencies of which are relatively high globally, especially in African and South American nations. Increasing the intake of blue foods in those areas could diminish malnutrition, particularly for vulnerable populations such as young children and elders, pregnant women, and women of childbearing age.

Meanwhile, high incidences of cardiovascular disease — a condition associated with excessive red meat consumption — are mostly found in the rich, developed countries in North America and Europe. Promoting more freshwater or marine seafood here could displace some red and processed meat consumption and lower the risks and rates of

developing heart disease.

More blue food can also result in a more environmentally friendly and sustainable food system. As aquatic food production exerts relatively lower environmental pressures than terrestrial meat production, a shift toward more blue foods could lower the toll that producing terrestrial livestock (particularly ruminants such as cows, sheep, and goats) takes on the earth.

Carefully developed, aquaculture, mariculture, and fishing also present opportunities for employment and can ensure the livelihoods of hundreds of millions of people worldwide, according to the researchers.

With thoughtful implementation of blue food policies that lower the barriers to blue food production and access, countries could avail of multiple benefits simultaneously, resulting in healthier people and a sustainable food system, as well as a better ability to adapt to changing environmental conditions. But not all countries will benefit to a uniform degree.

“Blue foods can play important roles in our diets, societies, and economies, but what exactly this looks like will differ greatly from one country and local setting to another,” said the study’s lead author Beatrice Crona, a professor at the Stockholm Resilience Center at Stockholm University and co-chair of the Blue Food Assessment. “Our goal is for policy makers to fully understand the diverse contributions that blue foods can make, but also for them to consider the tradeoffs that need to be negotiated to really make the most of the opportunities that blue foods provide.”

To that end, the team offers an online tool, where users can see the relevance of policy objectives around the world in the realms of nutrition, heart disease, environment, and climate resilience.

“By further customizing the different parameters in the online tool, decisionmakers can explore the blue food policies most relevant for their national setting and use the paper to inspire blue food policies that can overcome existing environmental and nutritional challenges,” said Jim Leape, co-director of the Stanford Center for Ocean Solutions, a key partner in the Blue Food Assessment.

This study is the latest in a series of peerreviewed papers written by the Blue Food Assessment team in an effort to understand the potential for blue foods in the current and future global food system, and help inform and guide policies that will shape the future of food.

“Working closely with the large, international team of diverse experts in the Blue Food Assessment was amazing,” Halpern said. “The integration and synthesis of all the ideas

and knowledge that emerged from this work, and that we tried to capture in this paper, is really exciting.”

Joining us to receive the award, John & Nancy Todd will share their amazing partnership journey over five decades committed to the emerging field of ecological design, that uses human ingenuity to design a future in balance with nature, while healing broken ecosystems.

WEDNESDAY, MARCH 1ST: High winds are roaring through Santa Barbara County after a very wet night, and that’s led to power outages and many trees down.

The biggest impact was a Eucalyptus tree, estimated at over 40 feet tall, crashing down on the northbound lanes

of Highway 101 near the Earl Warren Showgrounds. Traffic was stopped. Some cars were hit by branches. Drivers turned around and went against the grain to go off the on ramps. Cal Trans, the California Highway Patrol, Santa Barbara Police, and Santa Barbara City Fire responded.

Workers with chain saws took on the task of carving up the tree and it took about an hour to open the lanes.

Nearby on McCaw near the Santa Barbara Municipal Golf Course, power lines came down, knocking out power for several blocks.

Lines were also ripped out in the area of Sycamore Canyon in Montecito with a closure at Ashley.

There’s also been small rock and mudslides on Mission Ridge Road on the Santa Barbara Riviera.

Strong Winds Knock Trees onto Highway, Power Lines Frigid Weather With Snow, Hail, and Sub-Freezing Temperatures

THURSDAY, FEBRUARY 23RD: The very unusual sight of snow across the hills above Goleta and Santa Barbara greeted residents Thursday morning as a storm moved in with a low and cold pattern.

Overnight lows hit the low 30 degrees in many areas. Snow levels below 1500 feet and dangerous road conditions were expected.

The pattern had been in the forecast

for days and it is setting up as predicted. The route will be parallel to the coast until Saturday and then turn inland.

With heavier snow up at the Grapevine on Interstate 5 between Bakersfield and Los Angeles, the freeway will likely be closed for an extended period. That will reroute the traffic, including 18-wheelers, up through Highway 101 on the Central Coast. It will be added congestion in areas such as Carpinteria and Gaviota where construction has restricted travel.

Harbor Activities Back in Full Swing

WHAT A WEEK THIS HAS BEEN! This Wheel of Fortune random weather that continues to surprise simply boggles the mind. Hopefully we’ll have put our snowboards and skis away and the roads won’t require winter tires by the time this column goes to press. However, between snow drifts and our historic atmospheric rivers, my cell phone camera has been in Seventh Heaven with Mother Nature’s irresistible palette of light and color painted across the skies. Amazing!

The weather along our coastline has subjected the waterfront to chaotic winds, freezing temperatures, heavy surf, and churning ocean currents that have impacted the harbor entrance once again. As a result the dredging had to be put on hold until conditions change. But, on the other hand, who wants to be on the water in those kinds of conditions? Long John Silver himself wouldn’t be foolish enough to do that. Even the stalwart Santa Barbara Yacht Club canceled an important race due to the uncertainties of our current weather.

Speaking of the Yacht Club, one of the events definitely not canceled was the much anticipated opening of the clubhouse on Friday, February 24th. Despite pouring rain, slick roads, and high surf the doors opened at 4pm as promised! On my visit the next day, bundled in my warmest parka, I climbed the stairs to the upper deck to find a group of six hardy members seated outside just under the scaffold having the time of their lives. Now how’s that for dedication? Inside the warmth of the clubhouse the place was jammed with people happy to reconnect after what had become a long, long winter’s hiatus.

The most important news of the week is that our community will be treated to a once in a lifetime opportunity: greeting the newest ship in the Navy’s fleet named after our fair city, the USS Santa Barbara (LCS-32). On April 1, 2023, the ship will be officially commissioned at the Navel Base Ventura County, Port Hueneme. The Santa Barbara is a Littoral Combat Ship (LCS) and is the 32nd ship, active or planned, joining the Navy’s second largest surface warfare vessels in production, next only to its guided missile destroyers. A trimaran hulled ship, the Santa Barbara was built in Mobile, Alabama, her keel was laid down in October 2020, christened in 2021, and launched on November 13th of that same year. Following a series of sea trials, the Santa Barbara was accepted by the Navy in July of 2022.

The Navy League of the United States – Santa Barbara Council has been preparing for the arrival of our city’s namesake for quite some time. Under the stewardship of the SB Navy League a Commissioning Committee consisting of 15 members has been formed and is chaired by Kevin McTague, a past Navy League president. Committee member Sabrina Papa exclaimed, “This will be truly a day to remember - this ship is pretty awesome! Our committee has been reaching out to the community as we plan for the April 1st ceremony, along with doing what is needed for the comfort of the USS Santa Barbara’s crew members during their stay here in California.” In conclusion Papa announced that the USS Santa Barbara and its crew is anticipated to arrive here in Santa Barbara at a date to be determined and will be open for public tours during her stay. For more information and reservations for the commissioning ceremony go to: www.usssantabarbara.org

Despite the inclement weather it seems that activities at the harbor and along the

waterfront are at full swing. The shops, museums, and restaurants are open and ready for Prime Time. Concurrently, weather related repairs are ongoing, onshore and off. I’m looking forward to the arrival of the USS Santa Barbara in the waters outside of our harbor, so stay tuned for the dates!

Lowenthal’s Legend

Music Academy to Honor Faculty

Emeritus Jerome Lowenthal

GREAT INSTRUCTORS ACCOMPLISH MORE THAN TEACHING CLASSES — they guide, support, and above all, inspire their students to pursue their goals with passion. Embodying this mindset, Music Academy faculty emeritus Jerome Lowenthal has served scores of Academy pianists for 50 years.

“Jerry has done everything for me musically, poetically, paternally, professionally, personally... I can scarcely think of a person who had a greater singular influence on my life. My mother? Beethoven?” remarked pianist Evan Shinners.

At 7pm on Thursday, March 9th, Music Academy and Santa Barbara music lovers will honor Lowenthal’s remarkable legacy with a sold-out concert and champagne reception. Community members can request to be put on the concert’s waitlist.

Curated by Lowenthal himself, the concert will celebrate the piano’s versatility as an instrument through performances by Lowenthal and five critically-acclaimed pianists: Ursula Oppens, Vassily Primakov, Evan Shinners, Nadia Shpachenko, and Lowenthal’s daughter, Carmel Lowenthal.

“I thought of the program not as roast beef (Beethoven or Reger) but as hors d’oeuvres, dessert, and champagne,” explained Jerome Lowenthal. “I wanted each person to play a light version of his or her favorite music.”

These festive samplings will include pieces written for two and four hands, spanning piano favorites by Mendelssohn, Chopin, Liszt, Couperin, and American composer Lewis Spratlan, who died just earlier this month. Pianist Evan Shinners will also perform works by Johann Sebastian Bach and his son, Wilhelm Friedemann Bach.

Additional highlights will include the world premiere of composer Harold Meltzer’s piece Dribble, and a joint performance of Gabriel Fauré’s Dolly Suite by Lowenthal and his daughter.

“My father has been the greatest musical influence in my life,” shared Carmel Lowenthal. “He inspires me with his brilliant and poetic playing, fearless and energetic approach to learning new scores, excitement about musical projects, commitment to practicing, and dedication to teaching and mentoring young musicians.”

Lowenthal, who is a student of piano greats William Kapell, Eduard Steuermann, and Alfred Cortot, has held a prestigious career as a classical pianist. He has performed at chamber music festivals worldwide, shining as a solo and duet artist by playing with musicians such as violinist Itzhak Perlman, cellist Nathaniel Rosen, and many of the pianists participating in Thursday’s concert.

“Having been together for 26 years now, I feel each day with Jerry is a musical learning experience,” said Ursula Oppens. His skill as a performer is rivaled by his capabilities as an instructor. In addition to teaching at the Music Academy for 50 summers, Lowenthal has taught at The Juilliard School since 1991. His Music Academy alumni have expressed sincere gratitude and anticipation in preparing to honor him during their March 9th concert.

“He teaches as he plays, with an intense attention to line, counterpoint, inner voicing, structure, sound, artistic vision and, of course, pianism,” said Carmel.

“Jerry has been a continuous source of inspiration for me - musically, artistically, spiritually, and emotionally,” voiced Vassily Primakov. “I consider myself incredibly lucky to have him as a teacher and a mentor, and definitely a father figure in my life. I can’t imagine my life without him...”

“One of my favorite activities at the Music Academy

was performing for and watching Jerry teach masterclasses. He always involved the audience in the process, and both performers and audience members walked away from the classes inspired, having learned something new,” said Nadia Shpachenko. “Jerry’s knowledge, kindness, sense of humor, imagination, energy, and dedication to his students are legendary.”

Concert waitlist spots are available through the Music Academy box office by calling 805-969-8787. To learn more visit www.musicacademy.org

MARCH 16, 5-8 PM



Local and International Meet at Gala


Penke and Jamie Riesto are redefining what it means to offer a welcoming dining experience. Most recently hailing from Barcelona, Spain, the husband-wife team has returned to Penke’s Santa Barbara roots to open Gala in downtown’s Los Arcos building.

With a constantly-rotating menu that remains unfettered by traditional labels and a bar that lets you send drinks to other customers and the kitchen staff, Gala is on its way to becoming a downtown Santa Barbara hotspot.

“The way that we designed the dining room was so that people can be making friends with the people sitting next to them, and I’m really surprised at how easy and how well that’s worked,” shared Penke. “Everybody’s talking to everybody at the bar, and people from the bar are

talking to the people at the tables — it’s been a really nice vibe.”

A born and raised Santa Barbara local, Penke moved to Spain after graduating from UC Santa Barbara. There, she met her husband, Chef Jamie Riesto, and they moved to New York to work in Michelin-star restaurants in the arenas of hospitality and cooking, respectively. The experience motivated them to return to Spain and work toward opening their own place where they could realize their creative visions. In 2010, they opened Picnic as one of Barcelona’s first brunch-focused restaurants.

When the couple’s children reached preschool and kindergarten age, they decided to return to Santa Barbara for a year so they could attend school in Penke’s hometown. One year quickly turned into multiple, and Penke and Riesto focused their goals on establishing a local restaurant they could run while continuing to manage their Spain business.

“What’s been interesting about opening in Santa Barbara as a local — my mom was born here, my grandparents came here in the early ‘40s — is that when you have family and all those contacts, people really do come out and support and that’s been really special,” said Penke.

With its inviting patio and an interior filled with picnic tables and intimate seating, Gala feels more akin to a home than a restaurant. A large window behind its prominent bar opens up to the patio, allowing guests to enjoy a drink outside while still feeling connected to the restaurant.

Gala’s drinks menu carries the location’s inherently social atmosphere, including craft beers, mead, and specialty cocktails that feature local spirits such as Yola mezcal and Oso de Oro vermouth. There is also a host of house-made flavored lemonades. Guests also have the option of buying the table next to them a glass of cava, a Spanish sparkling wine, or buying the kitchen team a beer.

This camaraderie and community are also reflected in Riesto’s menu, which he regularly changes to reflect seasonal ingredients and his diverse culinary background. Originally from Chile with Italian grandparents, Riesto’s cooking has been further influenced by his travels to Spain, Berlin, Brazil, and now, California.

The result is a custom chef’s menu that invites guests to enjoy a fusion of cultures and flavors. Last week’s menu, for instance, included salmon gravlax toasties, duck confit, burrata and ikura, oyster mushroom risotto, and more. Each dish is made with as many seasonal, locally-sourced ingredients as possible, with Penke and Riesto browsing local farmer’s markets for weekly inspiration.

Fragments, Chapter One

UCSB Arts & Lectures ~ continued from page 2

Mahsa Amini’s Legacy

Alumni and former staff member establish fellowship for Iranian women

SHE WAS A YOUNG IRANIAN WOMAN ON VACATION — just days before starting college — who died while detained by the country’s morality police. Mahsa Amini’s death in September 2022 set off women-led protests across the country and brought international attention to the dangers women face in Iran. Inspired by these events, UC Santa Barbara’s tight-knit Iranian community has created a path for women like Amini to pursue graduate studies at UCSB.

Meanwhile, Nasri helped bring the proposal to UCSB’s Division of Student Affairs, where she worked for many years, connecting the fellowship to the university. Though retired from UCSB, Nasri continues to volunteer as a lead advisor for graduate students in the Islamic Society of Santa Barbara. Her years-long involvement and support in the Iranian student community brought her into the lives of both Salmani-Rezaie and NasrAzadani when they were students.

the Detroit Symphony; the Cleveland Orchestra, and the National Symphony. An ardent proponent of contemporary music, she has also premiered and championed important new works by composers including Pascal Dusapin, Osvaldo Golijov and Matthias Pintscher. Already an authority on Bach’s music for unaccompanied cello, in the spring of 2020, Weilerstein released a bestselling recording of his solo suites on the Pentatone label, streamed them in her innovative #36DaysOfBach project, and deconstructed his beloved G-major prelude in a Vox.com video, viewed more than two million times. Her discography also includes charttopping albums and the winner of BBC Music’s Recording of the Year award, while other career milestones include a performance at the White House for President and Mrs. Obama.

Diagnosed with type 1 diabetes at nine years old, Weilerstein is a staunch advocate for the T1D community. She lives with her husband, Venezuelan conductor Rafael Payare, and their two young children.

“I have never been able to do anything that I didn’t believe in wholeheartedly... and I really do believe in this,” she said in a YouTube interview with UCSB A&L’s Charles Donelan. “The reason that I’m a musician, an artist is that it’s about connection and communication, and I’ve always wondered why sometimes our concert format does not communicate with more people or that it seems intimidating or that it somehow seems that we’re locked up in our Ivory Towers a bit.... I’ve always been searching for a way to break that without compromising on what we do well.... These masterpieces deserve to be played, they shouldn’t be shelved...and I also want to celebrate the great music that’s being written today.

Alisa Weilerstein’s Fragments, Chapter One is presented by UCSB Arts & Lectures and is made possible by gifts to the A&L Commission of New Work Endowment Fund. It is presented in association with UCSB Department of Music. UCSB Arts & Lectures Community Partners the Natalie Orfalea Foundation & Lou Buglioli have also offered generous support of the 2022-2023 season.

“I grew up in Iran with all the gender apartheid that the Islamic Republic is forcing on women,” said Salva Salmani-Rezaie, who completed her doctoral studies in material science at UC Santa Barbara in 2021. “And still, I always thought that the only way out for women in countries like Iran is through education.”

Salmani-Rezaie is now a Kavli postdoctoral fellow at Cornell University and will join The Ohio State University’s faculty next fall.

Shortly after Amini’s death was reported, Salmani-Rezaie, Mohamad Nasr-Azadani Ph.D. ’13, and another Ph.D. alum who requested to remain anonymous, along with retired staff member Venus Nasri, came together to create the Mahsa Amini Graduate Fellowship for Iranian women studying non-STEM fields at UCSB. They secured initial funding from UCSB’s alumni community with donors from the world over.

The group decided to target non-stem majors, fields that are often inaccessible to Iranian students, particularly women. Of the dozens of recent Iranian graduate students at UCSB, nearly all have been in STEM fields, noted Nasr-Azadani, who studied mechanical engineering.

“You have seen the value of the left brain of Iranian society, which is logic, engineering, and science, but not the right brain,” he said. “The right brain is what you’re hearing now in the news: the passion that women have, the leadership they have taken, the beauty of the innovation they have taken in the demonstration.” Nasr-Azadani now works in applied research focused on artificial intelligence at Accenture Labs in San Francisco.

Most of the initial funding was raised in a GoFundMe campaign that Salmani-Rezaie and Nasr-Azadani created, pulling in over $13,000 from friends, family, and fellow alumni.

“Well, I was an international student myself and I know how difficult it can be because you’re away from your homeland,” Nasri said. “Iranians are very attached to their families, parents, and friends.

And then when I was at Student Affairs, one of the questions that we would ask undergrads was: ‘How did you manage your freshman year?’ And then I was thinking, do they ask the same question to international and graduate students? And I said, ‘Well, I want to be that person. I want to be the person who they come to if they have a problem.’”

The fellowship was set up at UCSB with the support of Interim Graduate Dean Leila Rupp and Assistant Dean John Lofthus.

“The Mahsa Amini Fellowship is worldchanging in so many ways,” said Rupp. “It honors not just the death of one woman, but the courage of all the Iranian women and others who take to the streets in protest. Here on campus, it honors the Iranian community of faculty, staff, and students who, in the face of oppression back home and anti-Iranian sentiment in the U.S., bravely go about their work and studies. And it recognizes what Iranian graduate students bring to our university community, from the sciences to the humanities and social sciences.”

Lofthus noted the relatability of Amini’s plight. “As a father of a bright and motivated eleven-year-old girl, I cannot imagine a society where she is prevented from basic rights such as the freedom to dress as she wants or to pursue higher education in the subject of her choosing,” he said. “I was incredibly inspired when I first heard of what Venus, Mohamad, Salva, and others are doing and am delighted that I can help them make this fellowship a reality.”

UC Santa Barbara is believed to be the first university in North America to establish a graduate fellowship in Mahsa Amini’s name.

Bookworm Corner: I Dissent: Ruth Bader Ginsburg Makes Her Mark


Ginsburg dissented. Confronted by sexism and antisemitism from childhood, Ginsburg learned at a young age how to stand up for herself and her peers. This Women’s History Month, young readers can explore the power individuals have to change the world and RBG’s lasting legacy with I Dissent: Ruth Bader Ginsburg

Makes Her Mark by Debbie Levy.

Published in 2016, this informative picture book follows Ginsburg from childhood through her then-current position as the first Jewish woman Supreme Court Justice. Using language straightforward enough for readers at the fourth grade reading level and above to understand, Levy highlights how Ginsburg remained true to herself as she questioned why girls were required to take home economics classes, earned her college degree, and ultimately beccame one of nine women — out of 500 men — in her law school class. Paired with Elizabeth Baddeley’s striking illustrations and pop word art, readers may feel as if they are reading an adventure story rather than a biography.

Each of Ginsburg’s milestones are accompanied with historical context to help readers understand the significance of her accomplishments. While many of these realities are difficult to address with young readers, such as the prevalence of racism, antisemitism, and sexism in 20th century schools and workplaces, Levy explains each topic with objectivity and tact. She also notably explores how the prejudices against women in the workplace also extended to men and their participation in home life. By outlining how Martin Ginsburg supported his wife’s dreams and joyfully acted as their family’s chef, Levy teaches young readers that a variety of family dynamics are valid.

UCSB LAUNCH PAD Presents: SHE WOLF Margaret of Anjou

REEXAMINING ONE OF HISTORY'S MOST COMPLEX WOMEN with a modern appreciation, UCSB LAUNCH PAD will continue performances of a new play, SHE WOLF Margaret of Anjou, through Sunday, March 5th. Written by Katie Bender and directed by Artistic Director Risa Brainin, this play will continue to be developed each night that it is performed, meaning each evening will contribute a new element to the work.

"The issues Margaret was dealing with way back in the 1400s - civil unrest, extreme inequality, xenophobia, misogyny, the plague - are all part of our current national conversation," said playwright Katie Bender. "Margaret was married to Henry VI in an effort to broker a peace, only to be posthumously written off as a power-hungry ‘she wolf’ whose reign brought the country to war."

Performances will be held at UCSB Performing Arts Theater at 7:30pm on March 2nd through 4th, and at 2pm on March 4th and 5th. For tickets ($13-19) visit www.theaterdance.ucsb.edu

I Dissent also outlines Ginsburg’s friendship with Justice Antonin Scalia, teaching young readers that friendships are built on respect rather than constant agreement. This message is also reflected in the book’s stating that Ginsburg’s determination did not make her disagreeable, actively combating the stereotype that powerful women are not pleasant.

Ultimately, I Dissent: Ruth Bader Ginsburg Makes Her Mark highlights how one individual’s actions can have a ripple effect on the people and society around them. Just as Ginsburg drew inspiration from Nancy Drew and accounts of Amelia Earhart, modern students can find themselves represented in this book’s pages and understand how they can make a difference.

Bookworm Corner is a weekly column dedicated to highlighting children’s and young adult books that carry positive messages. It is penned by Daisy Scott, a lifelong reader and lover of children’s literature who holds her degree in literature and writing from UC San Diego.

Consumer Incomes/Sentiment Still Rising

JANUARY CONSUMER SPENDING rose 1.8 percent in a month, while personal incomes rose 0.6 percent in the BEA’s latest personal income (PCE) report out Friday, February 24th.

This is one more headache for the Fed that wants lower incomes and spending to bring down inflation. But that ain’t happening in January, at least.

From the same month one year ago, the PCE price index for January increased 5.4 percent. Prices for goods increased 4.7 percent and

prices for services increased 5.7 percent. Food prices increased 11.1 percent and energy prices increased 9.6 percent. Excluding food and energy, the PCE price index increased 4.7 percent from one year ago.

Inflation is declining, but it still caused financial markets to panic for no real reason. Such a spike in spending after two negative months and the concomitant inflation rate is temporary because of the huge eight percent Social Security inflation adjustment in January.

range for 18 of the last 19 months, per the University of Michigan study.

So much for Fed fears that higher inflation expectations may become embedded and cause consumers to sustain the high inflation by shopping until they exhaust their savings.

More studies by Federal Reserve economists are showing the Fed’s unrealistic expectations to achieve a two percent inflation target, no matter the loss of jobs, economic growth, etc.

No wonder consumer sentiments are on the rise. The University of Michigan final monthly survey for February confirmed the preliminary February reading, rising three percent above January. They don’t see much of a drop in employment, either, per their graph.

“After lifting for the third consecutive month, sentiment is now 17 index points above the all-time low from June 2022 but remains almost 20 points below its historical average,” said Survey Director Joanne Hsu.

Long-run inflation expectations remained firmly anchored at 2.9 percent for the third straight month and stayed within the narrow 2.9-3.1 percent

Progressive economist Robert Kuttner has just highlighted a Cleveland Fed study by its own staff economists that highlights the consequences of holding to a two percent inflation target.

The study, by Randal Verbrugge and Saeed Zaman of the Cleveland Fed, says Kuttner, found that, using the Fed’s own projections, inflation would still be at 2.75 percent by the end of 2025—moderate by historic standards—and reducing it all the way to 2.0 percent would require an unemployment rate of 7.4 percent, more than double the current rate.

Who doesn’t believe that would be disastrous at a time of geopolitical unrest, economic sanctions, and the Ukraine war?

Cottage Virtual Care –Spanish Now Available

Online service provides 24/7 treatment for common conditions

TO HELP INCREASE ACCESS TO CARE, Cottage Health is excited to announce that Cottage Virtual Care is now offered in Spanish. Launching today for California residents, Cottage Virtual Care –Spanish is always open, offering 24/7 coverage for virtual care visits.

Anyone can visit cottagehealth.org/atencion-virtual using a smartphone, tablet or computer to start a visit in Spanish. Patients start by creating an account and entering their symptoms and health information. Choose from an online interview or have a video consultation with a Cottage Health provider. Within an hour, users receive a treatment plan, and – if needed –prescriptions are automatically sent to a pharmacy of choice.

Common medical conditions treated via Cottage Virtual Care include colds, flu, skin rash, urinary tract infections and much more. All Cottage Virtual Care providers are credentialed through Cottage Health. Visits are offered at a low cost, without the need for insurance, for both existing and new patients. The cost is $29 for an online interview and $39 for a live video visit, payable by credit, debit, or health savings card. If the patient’s condition cannot be treated virtually, individuals are not charged for the visit cost.

To start a visit, learn more about conditions that can be treated virtually or watch our tutorial videos on how to complete a virtual visit, go to cottagehealth.org/atencion-virtual. Cottage Virtual Care, the online service from Cottage Health that connects patients with Cottage providers, has achieved over 22,000 visits since its launch in December 2019.

The Golden Eagle’s Homecoming Lobero Theatre Rings in

150th Anniversary

WATCHING OVER GENERATIONS OF CONCERT-GOERS, from opera aficionados to die-hard rockers, the Lobero Theatre Golden Eagle has returned to her rightful perch. One of the only remnants from an 1854 shipwreck of a vessel owned by Cornelius Vanderbilt, the Golden Eagle’s history has become inextricably linked to the Lobero’s status as one of the nation’s oldest — and most beautiful — theatres.

Community members toasted this beloved icon’s return with cheers and champagne when the Lobero hosted its 150th-anniversary Ovation Celebration on February 22nd.

“150 years is a long time — Where you’re sitting right now is exactly where people sat in 1873,” said David Asbell, Lobero Theatre Foundation Executive Director. “A living wise man once told me that it’s very important to have a history, but the most important thing is that history continues to be made. And that is our goal for the next 150 years, to make sure that history continues

to get made here every time there is a show.”

Community members and longtime Lobero supporters filled the theatre, where a slideshow of the Lobero’s past performers emphasized the stage’s rich history. Guests laughed with appreciation as they learned the Lobero has hosted the likes of Susan B. Anthony, Bing Crosby, Sergei Rachmaninoff, Orson Welles, Joan Baez, Betty White, the late, great David Crosby, and more.

A video commemorated the theatre’s legacy, narrated by actor, musician, and avid Lobero supporter Jeff Bridges. Brett Hodges, Chair of the Lobero Theatre Foundation’s Ovation Campaign, welcomed all by sharing the remarkable story of the power going out during the previous night’s Jack Johnson concert. Audience members held their cell phone flashlights high so Johnson and singersongwriter Zach Gill could perform an acoustic set.

“This theatre has shined for 150 years, this theatre has been sort of the indie underdog, the ‘get-it-done,’ the ‘show-must-go-on place,’” said Hodges. “I can’t imagine that there’s any other theatre, anywhere, that would have had the show go on last night.”

Anticipation for the big reveal grew as guests viewed a short film chronicling the history of the Lobero’s Golden Eagle. Discovered on Santa Rosa Island after the shipwreck of its first home, Vanderbilt’s Yankee Blade, the eagle was later traded to Jose Lobero for a bottle of whiskey. Gracing the theatre for 40 years, the eagle went missing after being put in storage and sold at auction. However, in 1960, it was rediscovered serving as a figurehead on a local ranch gate. It was donated to the Santa Barbara Historical Museum, which has restored the eagle to its original grandeur.

Guests flocked to the Lobero’s front patio for the grand unveiling of the Lobero Golden Eagle, champagne flutes in hand. With three cheers and much applause, the Lobero’s front doors swung open, inviting all to visit the eagle.

“The Historical Museum is honored to play a part in the Lobero’s 150th anniversary by loaning the Lobero Eagle to the theatre for the next two years,” shared Dacia Harwood, Executive Director of the Santa Barbara Historical Museum.

The festivities continued across the street at El Paseo Restaurant, where guests enjoyed a buffet-style dinner and margaritas, accompanied by the jamming tunes of blues duo Tom Ball and Kenny Sultan. www.lobero.org

Ballet Preljocaj’s Environmentalist Swan Lake


ANXIETIES and the evils of unbridled, greed-fueled industrialization to the intricacies of Tchaikovsky, Ballet Preljocaj impressed Santa Barbara last weekend with their interpretation of Swan Lake

Presented by UCSB Arts & Lectures at the Granada Theatre on February 25th and 26th, the French company exhibited a mastery on both a technical and emotional level in infusing Tchaikovsky’s best known work with modern flair.

In a whirlwind 110 minutes with no intermission, viewers found themselves immersed in a modern retelling of Swan Lake that emphasized the story’s darker themes. The original ballet follows Prince Siegfried as he

falls in love with Odette, who has been cursed by the wizard Rothbart to live as a swan by day and a woman by night. When Prince Siegfried attempts to confess his love to Odette and break the spell, he realizes that Rothbart has transformed his own daughter, Odile, to look like Odette. The play ends with Siegfried and Odette deciding to end their lives instead of living a life apart.

Ballet Preljocaj loosely followed this premise, casting Rothbart as a power-hungry industrialist working with Siegfried’s father to extract resources from the titular swan lake. As the curtain rose on the Granada stage, viewers witnessed Odette (Théa Martin) being attacked by Rothbart (Antoine Dubois) and his henchmen. Odette’s transformation is later mirrored by Siegfried’s father

(Simon Ripert) asserting his capitalist vision over his wife’s concerns (Zoë McNeil), and Rothbart controlling his daughter to trick the prince. Through this brilliant choreography, the overt environmental messages of the play were punctuated by the underlying conflict of men in suits controlling or silencing women.

A heavy presence of contemporary dance, music, and imagery further distinguished Ballet Preljocaj’s Swan Lake from its traditional form. Images of skyscrapers and machinery dominated the stage’s backdrop, alternating with erratic patterns and strobe lighting whenever Rothbart, dressed in black leather, exerted his influence. During these moments, the company carried out distinctly modern dance movements to electronic music by 79D. Skillfully realized, these motions evoked feelings of unease that paired well with the fear that accompanied Rothbart’s industrialist takeover.

The contemporary dance’s angularity and suddenness provided ideal visual contrast to the company’s classical ballet movements. Set to Tchaikovsky’s original score, these instances were clearly connected to nature as threatened by Rothbart’s technology. The ballet’s tour de force emerged with

the pas de deux between Martin’s Odette and Laurent Le Gall’s Prince Siegfried. Passionate and gentle, the pair complemented each other’s energies, moving as if they were the only people in the world, much less on the stage. In a moment of extreme tenderness, the company’s ensemble of swans lifted the pair to exchange a kiss mid-air.

The ballet concluded with an ending more frightening and tragic than its original tale: the

death of not only Odette and Siegfried, but of all of the swans and the lake itself. The result was a visually compelling rallying cry to oppose the capitalist and industrialist forces threatening our environment. As the dancers collapsed, audience members leapt to their feet, applauding for three curtain calls on Sunday’s performance.

Delightfully “Out of Joint”


cut to the heart of the gathering as guests mingled during a preview reception, waiting to enter the newly installed exhibition, Out of Joint: Joan Tanner as well as Scenes from a Marriage: Ed & Nancy Kienholz, cut to the heart of the gathering.

As exhibition lighting came on, I was suddenly face-to-face with the artist Joan Tanner. “Have you seen the exhibit?” she asked. Not quick with a response, she suggested, “Go look.”

Moving through Ludington Court and then on to the McCormick Gallery, a visceral, exciting conversation with her art began. Filling McCormick’s double or triple wide entry from floor to ceiling with cool yet vibrant blue and purple mesh, shot with inclusions of warmer rusts and earthy tones, was Mire, a site-specific work. Entering the gallery, there was more. The interior side of Mire flowed into the room and out onto the floor and then extended nearly across the room, by virtue of an oceanic-looking tube, reminiscent of an oversize

kelp shaft. Peering closely at the details, then around the room, visitors milled among the multiple sculptures, comprised of everyday, yet unusual materials, just taking them in.

Looking up, plywood sliced through and shaped the upper regions of space in one corner as Tanner’s Shaped Plywood hung suspended from cables, attached to walls, and arranged together.

Just as alluring as the three dimensional work, Out of Joint also presents an array of Tanner’s recent drawings. The entire exhibition includes selections from the last ten years, rather than a career retrospective of this artist, whose first solo exhibition at SBMA was in 1967. She’s too active in the present for a retrospective and the end of her creative arc is yet to be discovered.

Currated by the Museum’s Curator of Contemporary Art James Glisson, Out of Joint: Joan Tanner is on view through May 14th. Scenes from a Marriage: Ed & Nancy Kienholz is on view through May 21st.

You might take the artist’s suggestion yourself - “Go look.” You’ll discover her intriguing world. www.sbma.net
