Donato Cabrera back to the Academy for its 75th Community Concert

By Kerry Methner, PhD / VOICE


PARKLING WITH VITALITY and creativity, and drawing an audience of all ages from around Santa Barbara and music lovers from near and far, the Music Academy’s Summer Festival is set to return in person after a two year hiatus later this month. A highlight and anticipated local tradition of the season is the annual community concert at the Santa Barbara Bowl, complete with $10 tickets so all can attend – a gift to the community from the Academy and its sponsors. This year that concert will be helmed by Maestro Donato Cabrera, stepping in for long-time MAW Faculty member Larry Rachleff, in a program

Conductor Donato Cabrera

PROGRAM Ludwig Van Beethoven Symphony No. 5 in C minor Arturo Márquez Danzon No. 2 Sergei Prokofiev Suite from Romeo and Juliet

Beethoven’s 5th as performed by the Academy Festival Orchestra will reverberate in the beautiful setting of the Santa Barbara Bowl on June 25th at 7:30pm under the baton of Maestro Donato Cabrera.

dominated by Beethoven’s Symphony No. 5 in C Minor... or the Fate Symphony on June 25th at 7:30pm. Maestro Cabrera, Music Director of the California Symphony and the Las Vegas Philharmonic, is known for his taste for music by living composers and working with talented newcomers, such as the likes of the academy fellows. That doesn’t mean he doesn’t enjoy the classics, such as the 5th. “I have performed Beethoven’s 5th on multiple occasions,” he shared in an email interview, adding, “What makes this symphony so enduring is that after every rehearsal and every performance, it feels like all I’ve done is just peel away one more layer of skin, like it’s a compositional onion! It’s endlessly fascinating for not only those who hear it, but for those who perform it, too! During the pandemic, Cabrera continued to engage his audiences, moving into innovation in the digital domain with both of his home symphonies. Previously, Cabrera was Resident Conductor of the San Francisco Symphony and the Wattis Foundation Music Director of the San Francisco Symphony Youth Orchestra from 2009-2016. Cabrera’s resume as a leader also includes serving on the staff at the Academy in 2003 and

2004 as an assistant conductor for the vocal program’s opera productions and preparing the symphony orchestra for their guest conductors. He returns for his own Academy conducting debut with a demonstrated gift for working with rising musical stars. Following are Maestro Cabrera’s answers to a few questions from VOICE. VOICE: What is fun about conducting Beethoven’s 5th? Cabrera: What is fun about conducting Beethoven’s Symphony No. 5 is how it feels. If you’re doing it right, it should feel like you’re sticking your finger in a light socket! There’s so much energy pent up in every note of every movement. V: Does this classic piece from the standard repertoire offer many teachable moments? Cabrera: There are enumerable teaching moments. From a technical point of view, it remains challenging to play for every instrument in the orchestra. From an historical perspective, it reveals Beethoven as a musical and political revolutionary. From a compositional perspective, it shows a composer at the height of their powers, using a simple collection of just four notes to create an entire symphony. V: Are any of the other pieces on the program favorites of yours? Cabrera: All three pieces are works that I truly enjoy

performing. Arturo Marquez’s Danzón No. 2 is full of evocative sounds and rhythms, creating the unique world of the Danzón, a dance form that was brought over from Cuba to Mexico and is still danced by all ages in the port city of Veracruz. And Prokofiev composed some of his most profound and descriptive music to the ballet, Romeo and Juliet. V: What are your thoughts working with young rising musicians like the Academy’s fellows? Cabrera: The Academy fellows are the best of the best and are on the cusp of having professional careers in music. The three pieces on this concert are pieces of music that they will perform

Celebrate the 75th Anniversary with an epic Community Concert! Generous support has been provided in remembrance of Léni Fé Bland. All tickets are $10, and kids are FREE with a ticketed adult.

DignityMoves and County Bring Interim Housing Downtown


Photos by Tim Persson / DSB

COMMUNITY PROVIDING INTERIM HOUSING has opened to support people experiencing homelessness as they transition into permanent housing. There, they will receive the resources they need. This was made possible by a partnership between the County of Santa Barbara and the nonprofit DignityMoves. Located at 1016 Santa Barbara Street, the site features 33 private rooms, as well as offer supportive care and services.

“COVID-19 has increased the urgency of building non-congregate housing for the unsheltered in our community,” explains the DignityMoves website. “While more permanent housing is the ultimate long-term goal, our streets cannot be the waiting room.” The project’s construction cost is approximately $1.4 million, with annual operating fees estimated to cost $1 million and the initial three years project the total cost will be $4.4 million. Each room is designed to offer residents privacy and a quality, temporary home, and will feature a desk and chair, bed, window, and heating and air conditioning. Nonprofit organization Good Samaritan will provide walk-

in supportive services for both residents and people experiencing homelessness in the community. Good Samaritan will also be able to connect people to other resources to ensure they receive the support they need as they look toward securing permanent housing.

A Luminous Researcher


By Harrison Tasoff / The UC Santa Barbara Current

IOLUMINESCENCE IS PERHAPS THE MOST MESMERIZING ABILITY that life has evolved. From deep sea fish to glowing mushrooms, organisms have harnessed their light for a variety of pursuits including confusing predators, catching prey and even reproduction.

It makes for a fascinating area of study, as doctoral student Emily Lau(link is external) would know. Her research on the phenomenon earned her a $20,000 Scholar Award from the P.E.O. Sisterhood. The award recognizes women doctoral students for their academic achievements and potential for positive impact on Emily Lau society. Lau was sponsored by Chapter OK of Santa Barbara. “I feel extremely honored to receive this award from the P.E.O. Sisterhood,” Lau said, “and I’m grateful to be recognized as an innovative scientist.” Lau and her co-advisor, Professor Todd Oakley(link is external), recently discovered(link is external) that bioluminescence evolved independently at least 94 times across the tree of life. This makes it an excellent trait for

investigating longstanding questions in evolution. Lau focuses on ostracods (also known as seafireflies) and midshipman fishes. To produce bioluminescence, midshipman must eat luminous ostracods to obtain a molecule essential for light production, she explained. She and her other coadvisor, Assistant Professor Arnab Mukherjee,(link is external) are currently studying the proteins used to produce and regulate bioluminescence in ostracods.


Doctoral student receives award for women researchers

Male ostracods perform their mating display off the coast of Bonaire, in the Caribbean Netherlands. Each blurred streak in this time-lapse image appears as a delicate, ephemeral dot creating a string of twinkling lights.

Although bioluminescent animals are incredibly diverse, some features of their abilities seem similar. “For example, fireflies, ostracod crustaceans and sea pansies use radically different biochemistries to produce light,” Lau said. “However, they converged on similar mechanisms to metabolize bioluminescent molecules.” Investigating how and why this happened provides insights into evolutionary processes and molecular mechanisms, which can then be applied to develop new biotechnologies. The team is developing a biosensor to detect a process called sulfation, in which an enzyme adds a sulfate to another molecule. Sulfation is critical for important biological processes like detoxification and regulating hormones and neurotransmitters, Lau explained. Irregularities are linked to cancers, neurodegenerative diseases and skeletal disorders, so the pathway is a promising target for drug development. The group’s

biosensor would be a major step forward, since there currently isn’t any way to assay sulfation in live cells. Lau also is a recipient of the National Science Foundation’s Graduate Research Fellowship and research grants from the Society for the Study of Evolution, the Society of Systematic Biologists, and the Lerner-Gray Grants Program. The P.E.O. Sisterhood — founded January 21, 1869, at Iowa Wesleyan College — is a philanthropic educational organization (P.E.O.) dedicated to supporting higher education for women. The Scholar Awards were established in 1991 to provide substantial merit-based awards for women in the United States and Canada who are pursuing a doctoral-level degree at an accredited college or university.

The Artisan & Company


By Daisy Scott / VOICE

ROM PURSES GLISTENING WITH COWRIE SHELLS TO INTRICATELY WOVEN CHAIRS, every item at The Artisan & Company embodies an artist’s personal story. Recently opened in Paseo Nuevo, the sunlit store presents a delightful array of home goods and fashion items crafted by Indonesian artists. Browsing, visitors ultimately discover a refreshing departure from traditional massconsumption focused shopping experiences, as they explore the handmade beauty of Indonesia. “All of our makers we know personally, their families, we’ve spent time in their workspaces, so it’s very intimate for us,” shared owner Mary Ann Nikel, who runs the store with her husband, Mathieu Nikel.

Mary Ann launched her business 12 years ago, initially operating via an online platform while living in Indonesia — the country she called home for 15 years. There, she fell in love with the local artists’ styles, appreciating their dedication and patience as they turned every item into an authentic work of art. Accordingly, all of The Artisan & Company’s items are created in Indonesia and purchased directly from local artists.

Mathieu and Mary Ann Nikel

After relocating to Santa Barbara with her family, Mary Ann began participating in the Paseo Nuevo’s Makers and Wares Markets in 2020. The opportunity not only introduced a new style of craftsmanship to the downtown scene, but supported Indonesia’s community of artists. “When I started the pop-up here at Paseo, my intention was to create something that was original,

something that’s not being done in town, and to definitely highlight makers in Indonesia,” shared Mary Ann. “I feel like they’re either overlooked or exploited in terms of big brands going to Indonesia and sourcing and not really highlighting the makers — they just get lost in a big box store.”

Sharing Indonesian Artistry with Downtown SB

The new Artisan & Company store continues this goal, surrounding visitors with artistic displays of handcrafted items for almost every room of the home. Cowrie shell mats, wooden bowls inlaid with glistening abalone, creative decor, and handmade chairs adorn the walls and shelves. Customers can also discover mirrors, utensils, baskets, and more — each an impressive testament to their respective artists’ time, effort, and talent. There are also shelves of personal fashion items, including gorgeous handwoven hats and delicately patterned purses. Racks of linen shirts, dresses, and pants bookend these shelves, furthering the store’s promotion of environmentally-conscious consumption, as linen requires far less water and pesticides than cotton. Accenting handmade items is a small selection of books, candles, and photographs, completing the store’s homey, creative energy. Going forward, Mary Ann and Mathieu hope to support local artists and makers by hosting community events and pop-ups in their store.

Santa Barbara’s Stearns Wharf - Living History!

HERE’S NO BETTER VIEW OF SANTA BARBARA than from Stearns Wharf and no better year to celebrate its 150th birthday! The iconic Wharf, a structure that remains the number one tourist attraction in Santa Barbara, is more than a place to fish, watch assorted water craft cruising in and out of the harbor, enjoy fine dining and browse the many shops – it’s actually the structure that changed the face of Santa Barbara … literally! Before the construction of the wharf, Santa Barbara, surrounded by mountains and encapsulated by the coastal waters, was an isolated area. There were no roads and no railroad, the only access was by sea.

In honor of Stearns Wharf ’s 150th anniversary, the local merchants are holding Wharf Wednesdays on the first Wednesday of each month. There will be anniversary specials and discounts, a bit of history, and lots of fun, family-friendly activities. The commemoration will culminate with a special celebration on Saturday, October 8th, complete with fireworks. Stay tuned for further announcements on music and other events that will take place throughout the year. I hope to see you there...

For more info: https://stearnswharf.org/stearns-wharf-to-celebrate-150th-anniversary

The original residents, the Chumash, lived comfortably on the land for centuries until the invasion of the Spanish during the 18th Century. The territory then became part of Mexico following the Mexican War of Independence. In 1848 the United States acquired California during the Mexican-American War thus introducing Santa Barbara’s warm climate and healing hot springs to East Coast residents. Despite the arrival of more settlers from other parts of the United States, the town’s Spanish and Mexican roots remain in the city’s architecture and street names. When John Peck Stearns built the wharf in 1872, he not only opened the door to large-scale commerce and trade, he introduced Santa Barbara to the rest of the world. It became a vital conduit for a growing fishing fleet and is the birthplace of commercial diving and Maria Perez diving equipment now utilized globally. Today as in the past, Sterns Wharf serves as a focal point to bring the community together. Despite having been battered by storms, scorched by fires, even damaged by a water spout, this iconic pier has persevered because it offers something no other place in Santa Barbara can match …. an historical perspective in real time! Deciding to enjoy an almost-summer evening’s walk on Stearns Wharf, I visited shops, wandered past eateries including the Harbor Restaurant, Longboards, and Moby Dick, as well as the Fish Market near the end of the pier. I stopped to look at the colorful flags illuminated in the evening sun near the Museum of Natural History Sea Center. I shopped at the Old Wharf Trading Company never in short supply of anything representing a visit to our town, noticed the upstairs Deep Sea Conway Wine Tasting enclave, strolled by more gift shops containing ocean related items and of course, stopped at the ice cream store … mobbed even on a (alleged) quiet Monday evening.

Join us for an evening at the beautiful Rancho La Patera gardens to sample appetizers, wine and beer from local restaurants, wineries and breweries, as well as a performance by the 2022 Spirit of Fiesta and Junior Spirit, musical entertainment by Tony Ybarra and dancing under the stars with Area 51. PRESENTING SPONSOR: Community West Bank

THURSDAY, JUNE 16 5 - 10 pm $85.00 all inclusive

Where I actual landed, however, was Mother Stearns Candy Company offering “Truffles, Taffy, and Fudge.” The almost sinfully massive truffles displayed in the candy counter caught my eye – huge yummy mounds Sigrid Toye volunteers for the Breakwater Flag Project.

of delicious, mouth watering delights! Maria Perez behind the counter watched as I ogled those truffles and was kind enough to chat with me between customers. “This store has been here a long time, since 1988, now almost 25 years,” she said as she showed me one of the store’s branded sweatshirts for sale. “I remember coming here when I was a kid and watching the Tasmanian Taffy Turkey moving up and down in his cage outside the store.... The candy was good then too … would you like one?” I thought she’d never ask! And that was the very best truffle I’ve ever eaten, EVER!

Free At Last: A Juneteenth Poem

Photo courtesy of Juneteenth SB

Filling the Funk Zone with music, a Black Artisan Market, a fun kids’ zone, food, and more, Juneteenth Santa Barbara and Healing Justice Santa Barbara will celebrate Juneteenth with its free, community-focused Block Party from 12 to 5pm on Sunday, June 19th, along the 200 block of Gray Ave.

Themed Caring for the People, the festival honors Juneteenth, a holiday remembering the day enslaved Black people of Galveston, Texas, learned of their freedom two years after the signing of the Emancipation Proclamation. Today, communities continue to observe Juneteenth as a celebration of Black and African American history, culture, and joy.

¡SB celebra Juneteenth!

Llenando el Funk Zone con música, un Mercado Artesanal Negro, una divertida zona para niños, comida y más, Juneteenth Santa Barbara y Healing Justice Santa Barbara celebrará Juneteenth con su fiesta de la cuadra gratuita y enfocada en la comunidad de 12 a 5pm el domingo, 19 de junio, a lo largo de la cuadra 200 de Grey Ave.

Safari Local

Con el tema Caring for the People, el festival rinde homenaje a Juneteenth, un día festivo que recuerda el día en que los negros esclavizados de Galveston, Texas, se enteraron de su libertad dos años después de la firma de la Proclamación de Emancipación. Hoy en día, las comunidades continúan observando Juneteenth como una celebración de la historia, la cultura y la alegría de los negros y afroamericanos.

OMBINING POWERFUL, LYRICAL FREE VERSE POETRY WITH INTIMATE ILLUSTRATIONS, Free At Last: A Juneteenth Poem by Sojourner Kincaid Rolle is the perfect introduction to Juneteenth for young readers. Featuring gorgeous watercolor scenes by Alex Bostic and penned by Santa Barbara’s former Poet Laureate (2015-2017), this picture book is as informative as it is beautiful, sharing the reactions of Black and African American people from Galveston, Texas, and beyond as they celebrated their freedom. Rolle’s poetry thoughtfully and comprehensively reflects upon Juneteenth’s history, referencing the longer-lasting effects of slavery, such as sharecropping, alongside people’s joyful singing and dancing. All of these details are written in an approachable manner, allowing for meaningful conversations to emerge between children and adult readers. Readers will walk away not only with greater appreciation for the holiday’s history, but understand the value of continuing to honor Juneteenth to this day. 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.

May’s Strong Unemployment Report


“U.S. STOCKS FELL FRIDAY after betterthan-expected May payrolls data reinforced expectations for a series of interest rate rises by the Federal Reserve in coming months,” was MarketWatch’s headline regarding May’s unemployment report.


By Harlan Green

The employment report showed 390,000 payroll jobs and the unemployment rate holding at 3.6 percent, with almost all sectors adding jobs. Restaurants and hotels added 84,000 jobs in the unemployment report, as summer vacation time approaches. More people are going out to eat, traveling, or taking a vacation. Employment also rose by 75,000 at professional businesses, 47,000 in transportation and warehousing, and 36,000 in construction. It was a very good report. A total of 8.1 million jobs have been created since January 2020. So, why did stocks fall with the good news? Friday’s sell-off was caused by the fear that the Fed would now raise rates sooner and higher, so markets could no longer rely on almost free borrowed money to trade that had prevailed during the pandemic with the record low interest rates. Or, markets had not been listening to the Fed’s change in monetary policy. Former Fed Chair Bernanke’s most recent remarks in Barron’s Magazine highlighted just how much the Fed has changed its monetary policies. It now considers its other mandate, full employment as important as stable prices, and inflationary spikes a lesser danger, especially when caused by the current supply-side shocks from factors it has no control over—the pandemic, a Ukrainian war, and China’s COVID problems.

All-in-all, we must look beneath the headlines to understand what is really happening this year with the mix of conflicting bad and good news. Unfortunately, the financial markets aren’t helping matters with their fear of what the Fed might do next.

So, the actual slowdown in job growth could be a good sign, since it might mean less inflationary pressures and thus the need for the Fed to raise interest rates too high too soon.

The non-partisan Congressional Budget Office (CBO) that ‘scores’ existing legislation for its effect on economic activity concurs with this optimistic scenario. It said U.S. economic growth will exceed three percent in 2022, while “roaring inflation has topped and will cool each month to around two percent by some point in 2024,” according to a government forecast published last week.


Samantha Muscio, Writer • Calendar@VoiceSB.com

The Fed has “foresworn such preemptive strikes” when it initiated its new monetary framework, which it called flexible average inflation targeting, or FAIT, in August 2020, said Bernanke.

But its index showed that activity dropped only slightly from 56.7 to 55.9, where any number above 55 means very strong expansion. The decline was led by a decline in business activity and slowing supplier deliveries.

Kerry Methner, PhD Editor & Publisher Editor@VoiceSB.com

Daisy Scott, Writer; Calendar Editor • News@VoiceSB.com

Ever since Paul Volcker’s Fed and the stagflation of the 1970s, the Fed had reacted too quickly to any hint of inflation in raising their interest rates, “even in the absence of inflation,” said Bernanke. The result was wages and economic growth barely growing with inflation, averaging just two percent since then with higher unemployment rates.

There was another sign of slowing growth in the service-sector ISM survey as well. One headline reported, “Service-sector expands at slowest pace since early 2021.”

Academy Festival Orchestra Continued from page 2

frequently for the rest of their careers. However, it is highly likely that this will be, for many of them, their first time performing these seminal masterpieces. So, I’m in the enviable and incredibly rewarding position of helping to reveal the inner workings of these incredible works to them. V: How do you make it fresh? Cabrera: Part of what makes music making so special and unique is that it’s always performed under new and dynamic circumstances. It could be a band that’s performing the same set list, but every night it’s a new venue, a new city, and a new audience. Or, in this case an orchestra comprised of students from different schools, with different teachers, working with a conductor they don’t know, on music they may have never played. Regardless, this traversal of Beethoven’s Symphony No. 5 will be wholly unique and unto itself.

Conductor Teddy Abrams

Conductor Hannu Lintu

Conductor Stéphane Denève

Conductor Speranza Scappucci

V: Do you have a particular recording you reference in preparation?

Conducting the Academy Festival Orchestra

Cabrera: Particularly with a piece that’s been recorded so often as Beethoven’s 5th Symphony, I encourage all musicians to listen to as many recordings as they can get their hands on! There’s something to learn from all of them, in my opinion. However, if I were to pick three, I’d choose Eric Kleiber conducting the Concertgebouw Orchestra, Gunter Wand conducting the NDR Orchestra, and Sir Charles MacKerras conducting the Royal Liverpool Orchestra.

Some of the world’s foremost conductors will be introduced to the next generation of artists, at the Academy Festival Orchestra concerts this year.

Orchestra and just named Musical America’s 2022 “Conductor of the Year.” The concert will pair new works by Abrams and by Pulitzer Prize-winner Caroline Shaw with 20th-century classics by Prokofiev and Milhaudon July 11th.

Conductor of the Philadelphia Orchestra, takes the podium for Rachmaninoff, Guillaume Connesson, and Ravel’s second Daphnis et Chloé Suite on July 30th.

After Donato Cabrera will step in for the respected Larry Rachleff and lead this summer’s annual Community Concert at the Santa Barbara Bowl, in a program of Prokofiev and Márquez that opens with Beethoven’s iconic Fifth Symphony on June 25th, the Orchestra will continue with a concert under the baton of Teddy Abrams, now in his eighth season as Music Director of the Louisville

A rising star in the firmament of brilliant Finnish conductors, Finnish National Opera Chief Conductor Hannu Lintu will make his highly anticipated Academy debut with The Oceanides by his compatriot Sibelius followed by Mahler’s “Titan” Symphony (July 2nd). Stéphane Denève, who serves as Music Director of both the Brussels Philharmonic and St. Louis Symphony as well as Principal Guest

Finally, 1996 Academy alumna Speranza Scappucci, who looks forward to making her Metropolitan Opera debut next season after making history as the first female Italian conductor at La Scala, leads the season-closing concert: a program of Rossini, Respighi, and more on August 6th. The finale concert will feature all the vocal fellows in arias and operatic scenes, including Spanish Zarzuela - so it will be a treat for opera and orchestral lovers alike. The program will close with The Pines of Rome.

Hometown Band exPorter Releases Debut Album


By Daisy Scott / VOICE

ITH THEIR EXHILARATING GUITAR AND BASS RIFFS, CATCHY LYRICS, AND UPBEAT DRUMS, Santa Barbara alternative rock band exPorter definitely didn’t pump the brakes when it came to recording their debut album, NoBrakesNoBrakesNoBrakes. Released two weeks ago, the album largely navigates the ups and downs of relationships with a fresh pop-punk sound ideal for summer listening.

Destin has been playing with his brother, Alec, who sings and plays guitar, since 2014, forming exPorter with drummer Henry Kish in 2018. The band has gone on to become a local favorite, playing at SOhO Restaurant & Music Club and local festivals, as well as performing at venues across California. The lyrics of many of their album’s ten songs focus on the nature of relationships, specifically the nature of relationships falling apart, and acknowledging aspects of life beyond one’s control (hence the title NoBrakesNoBrakesNoBrakes). “I know songs always have meaning behind them, and obviously I write my songs with a meaning behind them,” voiced Alec. “But I want people to be able to either see that meaning and relate to that or take the song and create the meaning of its own for their personal life.”

“I think a lot of our stuff has a really feel-good energy to it,” shared band vocalist and bass player Destin Cavazos. “It’s something to have fun to, you can play it in your car driving around with your friends, and just have a good time. That’s the sort of energy we try to put out both in our live shows and in our recordings.”

exPorter members Henry Kish and Alec and Destin Cavazos

The album also carries an upbeat, ‘90s to early 2000s pop-punk vibe that reflects the band’s originality as well as their influences such as Green Day, Blink-182, and All Time Low. While some of the album draws from the band’s catalog, the band actually created and finalized multiple songs amidst the pandemic, resulting in an album that reflects their true potential. “It gave us time to obviously write a bunch of music, and then revisit some of the older ones, flesh those out, and be able to put those out and dig into a product that we are really proud of and hope that everybody else enjoys,” said Alec.

The Solstice Workshop –

Inviting You to Create IANT PUPPETS, balloons the size of buildings, and masks, oh my! There’s still time to join the Solstice elves at the workshop as they build grand floats and meet lively artists who will encourage you to express your creativity. Everyone is invited to be a part of the visual storytelling underway in preparation for this year’s Solstice parade on June 25th.

Soon to be parts of the parade, loose wheels, lumber, and scrap metal are scattered across the workshop with the artists in the construction stage of the parade. Take the chance of a lifetime and lend your hands to create colorful fabric mâché masks with artist Hathor Hammett, design customized costumes with Barbara Logan, or aid in the production of an elephant themed ensemble using fabrics from India with Claudia Bratton... And there’s more! Participants also have the privilege of working with artistic director, Riccardo Morrison, who manages the flow of the workshop, supplies artists with the right materials, and ensures that floats are sturdy enough to carry the weight of sound systems, float structures, and dancers as they travel up Santa Barbara Street. Morrison participated in the parade for many years as an improvisational dancer before undertaking the responsibility of lead artist at the workshop. “I view the parade as a performance art event,” Morrison said. “Even though these are big floats, they’re designed to not just march down the street, but to actually glide, spin, and even move serpentine like.”

While the last three years have passed without an in-person parade, Solstice artists have stayed busy implementing installation art projects throughout Santa Barbara. This year, the installation project takes form of a sustainable vegetable garden decorated with puppets off of Milpas Street, sculptures displayed in Pascucci’s restaurant, Music Alley’s venue accessorized with dragons, and even houses in the community can be seen with Solstice art and decorations. Morrison makes it clear that the installation project is a great way to spread the spirit of Solstice throughout the city and he encourages the community and workshop participants to further this art project.

Artistic Director Riccardo Morrison

As the parade date looms closer, artists are in a flurry of activity as they paint and decorate the floats and structures they have constructed. Morrison urges more participants of all ages to exercise their imagination and join in the celebration of the local Solstice legacy. “I want to encourage young people to participate in the parade and workshop,” Morrison said. “It is an excellent opportunity for a young person who wants to put their vision into something that has history.”

Several floats and decorations used in previous parades are being reused for this year’s performance. Pauli X Mano, a Hungarian artist, is repurposing

the inflatable structure, The Tree of Life, originally in the last inperson parade three years ago as a memorial for a local Holocaust survivor. The frame of the tree structure survived, and the revived inflatable creation will be in this year’s parade symbolizing the resurrection of the first Solstice parade post-COVID.

The workshop is located at CAW, the Community Arts Workshop, at 631 Garden Street and is open Wednesday to Friday, 3 to 8pm, and Saturdays and Sundays, noon to 6pm. To participate, register at www.solsticeparade.com/parade-registration and pay a registration fee of $30 for 12-to-17-year old’s or $45 for adults.

Rex Orange County Electrifies SB Bowl

By Daisy Scott / VOICE


ROONING AND GROOVING ACROSS THE SANTA BARBARA BOWL STAGE WITH JOYFUL ENERGY, Rex Orange County serenaded thousands of fans dancing in their seats as he rocked the venue on June 1st. The concert marked the British singersongwriter’s latest stop on his ongoing “Who Cares?” tour, named for his newly released album of the same name. By the end of the night, there was no question that Santa Barbara music lovers do, in fact, care when it comes to ROC.

Over the next 90 minutes, Rex Orange County performed an animated set that spanned the WHO CARES? album and beyond, including Loving is Easy, Television / So Far So Good, OPEN A WINDOW, and 7AM. As he sang, he shimmied, danced, and jumped, sometimes playfully striking a dramatic pose at the end of a number. Between songs, he engaged with the crowd with pseudo-bashful charm, asking how everyone was doing, asking them to sing along, and even at one point demanding that everyone put their phones away to live in the moment.

Rex Orange County also demonstrated his skill as a solo Concert-goers performer, playing stretched for blocks a brief set of slower as they eagerly songs — including waited to enter the Untitled and Bowl, many of them Happiness — alone younger or in the on stage as the same age range as curtains closed. His Rex Orange County, thoughtful vocals, who just turned combined with his 24.

Cheers erupted as Rex Orange County walked on stage, angelically singing MAKING TIME while dressed in an allwhite sweatshirt and sweatpants. As the final note of this slow jam rang out, the stage’s curtains parted to reveal a bright set decorated with cartoon thumbs-ups and a full band as Rex Orange County launched into KEEP IT UP and AMAZING — which have been dominating local radio waves since their releases this winter.

When the curtains reopened, he concluded with even higher energy than before as flashing strobe and disco lights lit up the night, and his supporting trumpet and saxophone players launched into impressive solo riffs.

Amanda Kloots’ Resilient and Open Heart Captivates illuminate Speaker Series Audiences Dear Friends, If you weren’t able to view it, I’d like to recap the powerful presentation by Amanda Kloots as part of our illuminate Speaker Series. While Amanda is an actress, dancer, fitness instructor, and author, she is probably best known for the tragic loss of her husband Nick Cordero, a Broadway actor, to COVID. She laid bare for the audience her incredibly painful and public journey during Nick’s long, complicated, and grim illness and the grief that followed his death. Amanda’s talk was, without a doubt, a tour de force in all the ways that matter for Hospice of Santa Barbara and our audiences. Her honesty and openness recounting her story and the lessons she learned was a gift to all of us who sat mesmerized by every detail. Our host and interviewer for the evening, Geoff Green (a local celebrity in his own right), masterfully asked Amanda pointed questions about her 95 day experience in 2020, watching her beloved husband, Nick Cordero, get sicker and sicker and then finally die from COVID, despite many heroic measures to save his life. Amanda expressed that “it feels natural to share Nick’s story,” which was one of love and bravery during those 95 days. She relayed that it felt like being on a roller coaster ride – up one day and down the next and how important it was to her to write about her journey, sharing the co-authoring role of a new book with her beloved sister, Anna. Now a best seller, Live Your Life: My Story of Loving and Losing Nick Cordero, Amanda explained that writing the book was both cathartic and allowed for closure to Nick’s story. “Grieving is tough ... you need to find one thing a day that keeps you smiling, and you will see that you have a beautiful bouquet,” she explained. Geoff asked Amanda to share some of the strategies she used to ‘keep moving forward’ to which she responded with a variety of her helpful personal techniques: • Sharing stories is powerful – that is what helped get me through those traumatic days of Nick’s illness and then finally, his death in 2020.

• Writing – the more you express it (trauma and pain), the more you heal.

Amanda spoke often and lovingly of their son Elvis, who was just an infant at the time of Nick’s illness and death. Elvis’ presence was a counterbalance to the overwhelming life and death decisions she faced on a weekly, if not daily, basis was truly a heart-wrenching experience. We were all touched by Kloots’ honesty, her sincerity, and her resilient spirit. Talking about serious illness and death is not easy, whether it is recent, several years ago, or many years ago. I am reminded of a book I read years ago by Rick Warren (God’s Answers to Life’s Difficult Questions), as I was dealing with a family member’s end-of-life journey and subsequent death. It seems so apt to quote from Warren, as I recount Amanda’s presentation. The four things for getting through those difficult times (of pain and loneliness) are utilize, minimize, recognize, and empathize: • The first way to deal with loneliness is to utilize your time wisely. • The second way is to minimize the hurt. • The third way is to recognize God’s presence (in whatever form God takes for you)

Amanda Kloots

• The fourth way is to empathize with other people’s needs. Thank you, Amanda, and we send our best wishes to you as you move forward along life’s journey with an open spirit, a positive attitude, and a resilient heart, ready to love again.

• Music is the key that helps open the door to the release of emotion and tension. • Fitness – that was the number one health activity that helped me through the trauma.

El corazón abierto y resistente de Amanda Kloots cautiva audiencias de la serie de oradores illuminate Queridos amigos, Si no pudiste verla, me gustaría recapitular la poderosa presentación de Amanda Kloots como parte de nuestra serie de oradores illuminate. Si bien Amanda es actriz, bailarina, instructora de acondicionamiento físico y autora, probablemente sea mejor conocida por la trágica pérdida de su esposo Nick Cordero, un actor de Broadway, a causa de COVID. Ella puso al descubierto para la audiencia su viaje increíblemente doloroso y público durante la larga, complicada y sombría enfermedad de Nick y el dolor que siguió a su muerte. La charla de Amanda fue, sin duda, un tour de force en todos los sentidos que importan para Hospice of Santa Barbara y nuestro público. Su honestidad y franqueza al contar su historia y las lecciones que aprendió fue un regalo para todos los que nos quedamos fascinados con cada detalle. Nuestro presentador y entrevistador de la noche, Geoff Green (una celebridad local por derecho propio), le hizo preguntas magistrales a Amanda sobre su experiencia de 95 días en 2020, viendo a su amado esposo, Nick Cordero, enfermarse cada vez más y finalmente morir de COVID, a pesar de muchas medidas heroicas para salvar su vida. Amanda expresó que “se siente natural compartir la historia de Nick,” que fue una historia de amor y valentía durante esos 95 días. Dijo que se sentía como estar en una montaña rusa – un día arriba y abajo al siguiente y lo importante que era para ella escribir sobre su trayecto, compartiendo el papel de coautora de un nuevo libro con su amada hermana, Anna. Ahora, un éxito de ventas, Live Your Life: My Story of Loving and Losing Nick Cordero, Amanda explicó que escribir el libro fue catártico y permitió cerrar la historia de Nick. “El duelo es difícil... necesitas encontrar una cosa al día que te mantenga sonriendo, y verás que tienes un ramo hermoso,” explicó. Geoff le pidió a Amanda que compartiera algunas de las estrategias que usó para “seguir avanzando,” a lo que ella respondió con una variedad de sus útiles técnicas personales: • Compartir historias es poderoso: eso es lo que me ayudó a superar esos días traumáticos de la enfermedad de Nick y, finalmente, su muerte en 2020.

• La fe también es poderosa: “me mantuvo centrada.” Le recordó a la audiencia que escuchaba – “No guardes tu dolor.” • La música es la llave que ayuda a abrir la puerta a la liberación de emociones y tensiones. • Ejercicio: esa fue la actividad de salud número uno que me ayudó a superar el trauma. • Escribir: cuanto más lo expresas (trauma y dolor), más sanas. Amanda habló a menudo y con amor de su hijo Elvis, que era solo un bebé durante la enfermedad y muerte de Nick. La presencia de Elvis fue un contrapeso a las abrumadoras decisiones de vida o muerte que enfrentaba semanalmente, si no diariamente, fue una experiencia verdaderamente desgarradora. A todos nos conmovió la honestidad de Kloots, su sinceridad y su espíritu resistente. Hablar de enfermedad grave y de muerte no es fácil, ya sea reciente, de varios años o de muchos años. Recuerdo un libro que leí hace años de Rick Warren (God’s Answers to Life’s Difficult Questions), mientras lidiaba con el viaje del final de la vida de un miembro de la familia y su posterior muerte. Parece muy adecuado citar a Warren, mientras cuento la presentación de Amanda. Las cuatro cosas para superar esos momentos difíciles (de dolor y soledad) son utilizar, minimizar, reconocer y empatizar: • La primera forma de lidiar con la soledad es utilizar tu tiempo sabiamente. • La segunda forma es minimizar el dolor. • La tercera forma es reconocer la presencia de Dios (en cualquier forma que Dios tome para ti) • La cuarta forma es empatizar con las necesidades de otras personas. Gracias, Amanda, y te enviamos nuestros mejores deseos a medida que avanzas en el viaje de la vida con un espíritu abierto, una actitud positiva y un corazón resistente, listo para amar de nuevo. Agradecemos profundamente tu intercambio crudo y sin filtro que fue sanador para todos nosotros. Como siempre, Hospice Santa Barbara está aquí para ayudar a los necesitados a “navegar por el paisaje emocional de la enfermedad, la muerte y el duelo.” Cuídate,

David Selberg

CEO de Hospice of Santa Barbara
