Independence Day


July Día de la Independencia By Cynthia Anderson / VOICE

day that we now recognize as Independence Day, or more simply, the Fourth of July. “The second day of July, 1776, will be the most memorable epoch in the history of America,” Jefferson confided in a letter to his wife, Abigail, on July 3, 1776. “I am apt to believe that it will be celebrated by succeeding generations as the great anniversary festival.... It ought to be solemnized with pomp and parade, with shows, games, sports, guns, bells, bonfires, and illuminations, from one end of this continent to the other, from this time forward forever more.” Though he was off by two days, Jefferson’s prediction has proved itself to be true. Throughout the country, concerts, festivals, and parades abound each Fourth of July. Families gather, donning red,

white, and blue clothing and patriotic music soars through streets and from buildings, anything from the national anthem and the marches of the armed forces to modern classics. People gather to celebrate with BBQs and bonfires, and some military bases even commemorate the day with a “Salute to the Union,” a firing of as many guns as there are states. The evening of this day comes with fireworks and more celebration. The American Pyrotechnics Association estimates that over 14,000 fireworks displays are held each July 4th. In Santa Barbara, we have a few shows from which to choose and with so many options, be sure to stay safe this Fourth of July!

SUMMER as our country celebrates the anniversary of the day that the United States of America declared themselves free of British rule. Often marked by family gatherings, parades, picnics, concerts, BBQs, and fireworks, this occasion comes each year to remind us of the struggles our predecessors faced and surpassed to guarantee our freedom as a nation. In 1776, Thomas Jefferson drafted the Declaration of Independence, which the Second Continental Congress passed unanimously on July 2, 1776.

New Trustees Add Voice, Experience to Westmont Board


ESTMONT HAS WELCOMED SIX NEW MEMBERS TO THE BOARD OF TRUSTEES RECENTLY, who will begin their three-year terms in the fall. Two of them, Denise Jackson and Roxanne Hughes Packham, have served as ex officio members of the board, and one, Tremper Longman III, taught at the college for nearly 20 years. “We’re delighted that Denise, Roxanne, and Tremper will serve as full members of the board,” said Gayle D. Beebe, president of Westmont. “They all know the college well, and they’ve been active and valued members of our community. I welcome their insights as an alumna, a former professor, and the parent of two alums. We appreciate the contributions they’ve already made and will continue to make.”

A native of Los Angeles who spent her formative years in Pasadena, Denise Jackson graduated from Westmont in 1978 with a degree in political science and later earned a Master of Public Administration with an emphasis in organizational development at American University. She has spent her career almost exclusively in human resources and higher education and has worked for Neiman Marcus, Disney, and Le Cordon Bleu Colleges of North America. She also spent three years as a resident director at Westmont. Currently, she serves as senior director of human resources for Pacific Clinics, a large non-profit behavioral healthcare provider. An instructor for UCLA Extension, Jackson has taught talent acquisition there for 21 years and Denise Jackson works with human resources internships. She belongs to Victory Bible Church in Pasadena, where she leads a small group and teaches in the women’s ministry. Previously, she chaired Westmont’s Alumni Council and spent eight years as the alumni representative to the board of trustees. She lives in Pasadena and enjoys antiquing, entertaining, reading, and spending quality time with her family and a special circle of beloved friends. Tremper Longman III graduated from Ohio Wesleyan University, earned a Master of Divinity from Westminster Theological Seminary, and completed a doctorate in ancient Near Eastern studies at Yale University. He served as the Robert H. Gundry professor in biblical studies at Westmont, teaching Old Testament classes from 1998 until he retired in 2017. He continues to serve the college as a distinguished scholar of biblical studies. He speaks and teaches frequently and has written or co-authored more than 35 books, including interdisciplinary works, books with psychologist Dan Allender, works on history and historiography, and textbooks. He has also contributed numerous articles to scholarly journals. Longman served as one of the main translators of the New Living Translation. Tremper Longman III “I put a big emphasis on Christological readings of the Old Testament, and that helps people see the relevance of the Old Testament to their Christian lives today,” he noted. Longman watches movies to relax and plays squash for exercise. He and his wife, Alice, have three grown sons, and the couple lives in Alexandria, Virginia. An accomplished interior designer, Roxanne Hughes Packham operates her own business, Sunset and Magnolia: Gracious Spaces. Her designs have appeared in Life: Beautiful, Cottages and Bungalows, California Homes, Dream Homes of Coastal California, Cowboys and Indians, Canadian Homes & Gardens, Gaither’s Homecoming Magazine, Family Circle, Silver Magazine, Westlake, and Malibu Magazine. She and her daughter, Hannah, co-wrote Inspired Design and co-founded Inspired31, a ministry of mentorship between mothers and daughters. She comes from an artistic family: her grandfather Allan Adler and her greatgrandfather Porter George Blanchard were celebrated Roxanne Hughes silversmiths. Hughes Packham studied at the Sorbonne Packham and Cité Universitaire in Paris and graduated from USC, Paris Fashion Institute, and FIDM/Fashion Institute of Design and Merchandising in Los Angeles. She is a licensed intercultural etiquette and protocol trainer and serves on several boards focusing on foster children support, educational institutions, and the American Society of Interior Designers, Los Angeles. She lives in Camarillo, Calif., with her husband, Scott, and near their two children, Justin and Hannah, who both graduated from Westmont. She previously served as president of the Westmont Parents Council and represented parents on the college’s board of trustees.

Connect via Zoom for a reading and conversation between Pandya and the novelist Ivy Pochoda as they discuss this irreverent, tense, and nuanced work of fiction that The New York Times Book Review recently said is as “witty as it is woeful.” In this story, that captures the unraveling of a carefully constructed life over the span of a week, Pandya explores ideas of race, belonging, and the grace and indignities of middle age.

Administered by the Non-Profit Local Media Foundation www.localmedia.org/local-media-foundation

Help us fund local COVID-19 reporting in our community

VOICE Magazine – COVID-19 Local News Fund is a program administered by Local Media Foundation, Tax ID #36–4427750, a Section 501(c)(3) charitable trust affiliated with Local Media Association. LMF is raising funds for educational activities; specifically, to educate the public on COVID-19 issues. LMF is providing funds to VOICE Magazine and many others to support this important educational project. All money raised by this effort will go directly to support COVID-19 reporting, to make sure the public has essential facts on this important topic.

VOICE Magazine 924 Anacapa Street B-1F Santa Barbara, CA 93101 www.VOICESB.com

Dear Reader,

We need your help.

Coronavirus has brought unanticipated and significant challenges to our families and our communities. How we respond to this pandemic may be the biggest story of our lives.

At VOICE Magazine we feel a responsibility to ensure we share the full picture with you. Our news team has published dozens of stories during March, April, May, and June. Much of this reporting goes beyond breaking news and reflects the enterprising journalism we have consistently produced, going back 27 years. We dive deep in our reporting, delivering answers to questions both asked and anticipated. We are grateful we can be here for you.

And like you, we are stressed. About our health and our ability to do our work. The pandemic has brought layoffs, furloughs, and salary reductions to newsrooms large and small. Many publications have moved online. We’re fighting like mad to hold the line, like many local businesses, and so far we’ve done so thanks to your readership and support via digital and print subscriptions. But it’s a steep hill, and we’re thinking creatively about how to climb it.

Your tax-deductible gift can ensure we continue to report on the coronavirus and all of its impacts across our communities. We aim to raise $25,000 to continue delivering essential news and information to you. With help from the Local Media Foundation, your gift goes directly to ensuring sustainability for VOICE Magazine and continued accountability reporting as we navigate this critical time.

Help Us Reach Our Goal: $25,000

speakers will explore a number of pertinent questions: What are the challenges Californians face today? How has COVID exacerbated pre-existing inequalities? Which populations are most affected, and how? How have communities and organizations have responded? What resources do communities need to combat the pandemic’s inequities? It’s important to reach out beyond the confines of a university campus, Tettegah said, because academics can be insulated from the realities of marginalized communities. “I’m hoping to get these individuals so we can hear them,” she said. “I remember when I was a program officer at the National Science Foundation and all these academics would come through. We’d have these panels and people would talk about things like, ‘Well, I think I want to do this app with a smartphone.’ And I’m like, ‘You guys have forgotten that not everybody has a smartphone. Not everybody has data packages.’ It’s because academics live in a world where we have access to many resources. We forget that some of our students don’t have the same access to the resources that we have in academia.” Tettegah said the webinars grew out of conversations with Betsy Kaminski, director of the Women’s Center at UCSB, about Photo by Edgar Franks

intersectional justice. Those talks blossomed into the webinars project, and the list of coorganizers grew to include an impressive list of scholars: Terrence Wooten, assistant professor of Black studies; Jean Beaman, assistant professor of sociology; San Juanita García, assistant professor of Chicana and Chicano studies; and Zakiya Luna, assistant professor of sociology.

Hospice of Santa Barbara’s “Coping with COVID-19” Series

Rejoicing in Communal Celebration in the Age of COVID-19


VER THE PAST FOUR MONTHS, we have had to give up a lot of what we consider normal, routine, satisfying, and/or nurturing. That may have included going to our place of work, going out to eat, enjoying friends at parties, celebrations, or even just having an evening together – anywhere – with family and/or friends. What has not been talked about very often, is the loss that has occurred in our lives as a result of our place of worship/faith traditions being closed to services, which includes weekly worship, weddings, bar mitzvahs, funerals, and other special events and holidays that were part of “normal” for all of us. Regardless of one’s faith tradition or the frequency with which one attends routine services or special events, it is true that a faith community is not just a community. In many ways, the faith community can be considered a family, often referred to as a “family of believers.” From a personal perspective, I can honestly say that I do consider the people with whom I have shared the weekly liturgy, my “faith family.” Despite the fact that many religions have been able to provide services to their congregation via YouTube, Zoom, or some other technological platform, there is nothing like being present in the same space with others to share our one united expression of faith. One thing can be said with certainty – until you lose such a privilege, you really don’t appreciate how much you will miss the communal experience of your religious tradition. Speaking personally, how thrilling it was for me to finally be able to gather in prayer in solidarity with our Pastor, Fr. Dan Lackie, in front of the Old Mission Church last Saturday afternoon, along with members of St. Barbara Parish at Old Mission Santa Barbara. Most of the 85 people in attendance

brought chairs and sat on the paved area in front of the famous Mission steps, while others sat on the adjacent wall or stood in the back or on the lawn that graces the front of the Mission on Los Olivos Street. Portable speakers allowed everyone to hear the readings and prayers, loud and clear. We practiced social distancing, wore masks, enjoyed the sunshine, and were able to accommodate more people than would have been permitted in the church. What felt so special about all of this was being present with others from the Parish that I had not seen in nearly four months. Each routine weekend service seems to have its regular attendees and that is certainly true of the Saturday afternoon 4pm Mass. In a way, it felt like a reunion, right along with communion, as we were able to participate in sharing versus watching the communion part of the service. It was a way to feel whole again, sitting and standing with those believers with whom we share an incredible bond of faith. As long as I have been an adult, there has never been a time when I was prevented from going to my place of worship. This made the loss of that privilege quite profound and brought to mind, sadness for the times in life when I chose not to participate in Sunday liturgy when it was there and available. Like so much of what we normally experience in life, we don’t Courtesy Photo

appreciate what we have until we have lost it. From family and friends, to our daily life and routine, to yes – participating in a religious service – the loss of normalcy has awakened the sense of purpose, gratitude, need for community, and importance of faith. At the moment, with a resurgence of the virus in our community, state, and in various areas throughout our nation, there is not a guarantee as to when our lives will resume in a more “regular” fashion. Notice, I did not say “when we will get back to normal.” As many have wisely predicted, there is bound to be a new normal. What that will look like and when it will happen, only time and our behaviors will predict. In the meantime, please ponder this quote: “Faith is like a boomerang; begin using what you have and it comes back to you in greater measure,” – Charles L. Allen. Let us have faith that, in time, and learning from this experience, our lives will be changed in hopeful and positive ways. One does not have to be in a church, temple, synagogue, or mosque to have faith or to give thanks – that can happen anywhere. Meanwhile, let us indeed take a moment to give thanks for what we have learned and how the lessons of these past months will change us in profound and positive ways.

Harbor VOICE Maritime Museum Next to Open?


By Sigrid Toye, Special to VOICE

Photos by Sigrid Toye

HIS COLUMN HAS KEPT ME PRETTY BUSY in the last weeks with all the openings around the harbor area. Exciting news is fun to write about, especially since I’ve had the good fortune to learn about what it actually takes to re-open any establishment after a long pause of three plus months! I’ve got my fingers crossed that these openings will continue, despite the busy July 4th holiday weekend and the many visitors that come to enjoy the ambiance of beautiful Santa Barbara. The anticipated opening of the Santa Barbara Maritime Museum is now in the planning stages – its various attractions to be opened during the weeks of midJuly. Although the Museum store is now open (with a lot of fun goodies) from 11am to 3pm Thursday through Sunday, the the Outdoor Visitors Center on the fourth floor will be opening its doors to visitors on July 16th during

the same hours. The Main doors, to the museum proper, will be opened to welcome the general public on July 23rd, the last phase of a tiered re-opening. “This has been a trying time for all of us. I hope everyone bears with us as we slowly re-open,” observed Greg Gorga, Executive Director of the Maritime Museum. “We want to insure that the experience is pleasant, rewarding, but also safe and healthy. We’ll be asking everyone to follow the guidelines as set by the State and County of Santa Barbara.” The museum staff is presently preparing for the weeks to follow, including staff training on the ever-changing protocols coming from the State and the County. Careful development of a workable traffic pattern, providing social distancing stickers on floors throughout the museum, new signage, purchasing and distributing masks and gloves, having hand sanitizers available, and installing sneeze guards are just some of the elements necessary for a smooth transition. The Maritime Museum closed it’s door on March 13th, but was able to keep all of their staff aboard during the closure. Undoubtably a learning experience for the museum, as it has been for all who have re-opened their doors, the resilience of the staff during the crisis has been nothing short of amazing. Emily Falke, Deputy Director & Curator, continues to install exhibits, including Mermaids: Visualizing the Myths and Legends Through Photography, by Ralph Clevenger and friends, while planning the next one, Love Letters to the Sea. The education staff led by Lis Perry, Director of Education, has expanded the online presence with fun educational activities to be found at SBMM at Home, on www.SBMM.org for adults and children to enjoy while being sequestered (ie: stuck!) at home. The Maritime Museum’s annual fundraiser, Surf the Big Wave, which took place in May spearheaded by Development Director Jane Lindsey, featured a live interview with World Champion Surfer Shaun Tomson and

July 3, 2020

other attractions in support of the museum’s many programs. The collaboration and support of other museums in Santa Barbara has been key to the Maritime Museum’s planned opening. “We have been in constant communication with the other museums,” added Gorga, “the Botanic Gardens, the Zoo, and other cultural institutions; each has been great about sharing their knowledge, best practices, and sources for guidelines so that we all can provide a safe and healthy experience for all.” Currently, the donning of masks, six feet of separation, and small groups of no more than nine are the standards of the New Normal common to all institutions who have cautiously opened their doors. The privilege this column has provided is to be a part of the journey of the various re-openings here in the harbor. Each business and institution is having to accustom itself to circumstances that are beyond their control. Their resilience and perseverance never ceases to astound me. Thank you all for sharing your stories with me. Sigrid Toye volunteers for the Breakwater Flag Project.

HE U.S. ECONOMY IS RECOVERING VERY SLOWLY, in part because the number filing for first-time unemployment benefits is still too high (see above graph). Why? Businesses are still shedding workers because the COVID-19 pandemic is not under control in the U.S. Total infections are now surpassing April highs, which means some states will have to slow down their re-openings as well as the rehiring of workers. CDC and NIH experts Drs. Redfield and Fauci testified Tuesday to congress that COVID-19 is surging rather than fading and not under control, as President Trump has asserted in recent speeches. In fact, Dr. Fauci said they won’t even have reliable diagnostic tests that will tell them how patients are infected until this fall. Dr. Fauci said the U.S. is “still in the middle of the first wave” and the imperative is to “get this outbreak under control over the next couple of months,” in his testimony. It is also affecting world-wide growth. Economist Mohamed El-Erian writes in ProjectSyndicate: “The world’s leading international economic institutions – the International Monetary Fund, the OECD, and the World Bank – now warn that it may take at least two years for the global economy to regain what has been lost to COVID-19. If the major economies face additional waves of infections, recovery would take even longer.” According to World Bank forecasts, the global economy will shrink by 5.2 percent this year. That would represent the deepest recession since the Second World War, with the largest fraction of economies experiencing declines in per capita output since 1870, the World Bank says in its June 2020 Global Economic Prospects. This in fact mirrors what happened after the world’s last worst pandemic—the 1918-20 Spanish flu outbreak from which the U.S. economy didn’t recover until 1922. And growth in the developed countries will be worse where the pandemic has been the most severe and where there is heavy reliance on global trade, tourism, commodity exports, and external financing, says the World Bank. Guess which country has the worst death toll and infection rates? It is the U.S., which means U.S. GDP growth is predicted to shrink by five to six percent this year say all three of the international economic institutions El-Erian highlights. In the week ending June 20th, the advance figure for seasonally adjusted initial jobless claims was 1,480,000, a decrease of 60,000 from the previous week’s revised level. The Labor Department said the advance seasonally adjusted insured unemployment rate was 13.4 percent for the week ending June 13th, a decrease of 0.5 percentage point from the previous week’s revised rate. The advance number for seasonally adjusted insured unemployment during the week ending June 13th was 19,522,000, a decrease of 767,000 from the previous week’s revised level. And WHO also warned of a new and dangerous phase of the pandemic. Eighty-one nations have seen a growth in new cases over the past two weeks. Only 36 have seen declines. “Many people are understandably fed up with being at home,” Dr. Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus, director general of the WHO, said in a news conference in which he described the new phase of the virus. “Countries are understandably eager to open up their societies and their economies. But the virus is still spreading fast. It is still deadly and most people are still susceptible.” We said last week that many employers, including auto and airline sectors, had been hiring back their employees over the past month, hence a surprise jump in employment with the 2.5 million jobs increase in May. Now both consumer sentiment and retail sales are beginning to recover, but only in those states and counties that listen to the experts, which means this recovery will be uneven at best.

HREE LOCAL CHAMBERS OF COMMERCE ANNOUNCED THEIR MERGER, a new name, and their leadership this week. The Chamber of the Santa Barbara Region, the Goleta Chamber of Commerce, and the Carpinteria Valley Chamber of Commerce have united to form the Santa Barbara South Coast Chamber of Commerce – from Goleta to Carpinteria effective July 1st. “The new Santa Barbara South Coast Chamber of Commerce will be able to mobilize the power of our 1,100 members to create a better business environment out of the devastation of the current economy,” they wrote in their announcment of the changes. “We believe this organization will fill the void that has been exposed by the economic meltdown, and be a more effective advocate for our Kristen Miller, CEO issues and concerns.” Formed by the unanimous support of the business and civic leaders from all three boards of directors, and recognizing that the business community already has connections throughout the three cities, the united group will represent business and community needs across government boundaries. The new organization plans to “honor and cherish” the unique and distinct qualities of each community’s culture, events, and neighborhoods while addressing a new focus on county-wide and regional issues. “As our current business climate continues to Curtis Lopez evolve, we tried to forecast our members’ future needs and give Carpinteria a stronger voice in the South County. Being a native Carpinterian, I did not take this merger lightly, but I and my fellow board members believe this is our future,” said Curtis Lopez, Chairman of the Carpinteria Board of Directors. The newly formed Chamber is dedicated to the economic health and vitality of all communities from Goleta to Carpinteria. The Chamber will continue its work helping businesses, residents, and visitors thrive. Key work will be advocating for responsible public policy, offering networking and communitybuilding opportunities, providing access to business Joyce Donaldson development resources, and supporting visitor services across the region. Kristen Miller, who has served as President & CEO of the Goleta Chamber of Commerce for the last 18 years, will lead the organization as the Chief Executive Officer. “Creating a unified voice for business on the South Coast is both the culmination of a long process and at the same time a natural next step in a rapidly changing world. Business and community, worklife balance, and sustainable workforce practices are all coming together and making us a more unified community. While some areas of our lives are Stephanie Armstrong becoming more isolated, we are coming together,” Miller noted.

MARLI - The Music Academy’s Virtual Summer Program – Two Weeks On – WOW! Highlights of upcoming performances and events:


By Kerry Methner, PhD / VOICE

OR ANYONE WHO WONDERED HOW THE MUSIC ACADEMY OF THE WEST could pull a summer school and festival off online, several returning fellows have stepped up to share exactly how monumental and life changing the online experience has been for them - after just two weeks! Hint: They are very positive about it! This year, the Music Academy of the West is training and empowering 134 of the world’s top young musicians from 23 countries and 22 states to continue honing their craft and to use technology to continue their education and prepare for 21st century careers during the Music Academy Remote Learning Institute (MARLI) which runs through July 24th. For four weeks, the full-scholarship fellows are participating in private lessons, studio classes, and workshops with faculty and guest artists. Fellows also all received a technology package for training and recording including an ipad mini, Apogee microphone, lighting kit, and more. They receive six hours weekly of Innovation Seminars from 48 guest artists and speakers. Seminar topics combine inspirational experience in the field and technical training in audio and video recording. The online format is allowing the Santa Barbara and world community to participate in a way that’s unprecedented. Every weekday the Academy is adding content at 5pm (through July 24th) and it is unique. Just sampling some of it can feel like an opportunity to be a fellow yourself! (Look for Concert Hall Online and for the Resonance Blog.) Following four weeks of training, 96 of the fellows have opted into a two week Creative Extension receiving a $1,250 professional stipend for some to create recorded content to share for a Digital Challenge; some will participate in the Fast Pitch Awards – a live competition pitching their ideas for future projects earning cash awards; some will continue education online; and some will participate in orchestral auditions to participate in the Keston MAX program to perform in London with the London Symphony Orchestra under the direction of Music Director Sir Simon Rattle. –––––––––––––––––––––––––––

Christine Comer, a returning percussion fellow, is 25 years old and was born in Suffolk, Virginia. She received her master’s degree at Northwestern University and was selected in 2019 as a 2020 Keston MAX Fellow. What have you learned/experienced that you will carry with you and use your entire career?

Last summer, Music Academy sharpened my musical skills and renewed my personal wellness. This summer, MARLI is challenging me to continue in those areas, but to push even further, to be unafraid, to turn ambition into fearless action. I have learned technical things:

how to properly use EQ in my recordings, how to frame and light a video to evoke emotion, how to be a pro at using Zoom, how to better play a glockenspiel excerpt from Wagner’s Siegfried. And on top of this great knowledge, I have been challenged to explore musical interests beyond the stage, which for me is educational outreach. A common theme presented by many of our seminar panelists has been, ‘don’t be afraid to turn your ideas into a project, then see it through.’ I am inspired by my colleagues’ ideas, from a new performance medium which more effectively engages with expanding audiences, to projects that celebrate and raise awareness about diverse composers, to educational outreach in our communities. Kelly Hall-Tompkins challenged us to contribute to our communities even while we are in the process of establishing our careers. This statement’s impact on me was profound and liberating: I do not need to wait for the platform of an orchestra outreach program (after I’ve hopefully, eventually, won an audition) to start putting ambitious ideas into action. I can start right now. MARLI has provided the catalyst, the platform, and the resources for fellows to serve and innovate, each within our own niche. Ms. Hall-Tompkins also noted that experiences are what we create them to be. This year, this unusual, heartbreaking year, is a time of challenge, and the lessons I will carry forward are numerous, but I can simply state that never again will I back down from a daunting goal. I will, as these artists have done, be unabashedly ambitious in pursuing goals as I serve the community I love. How has your work with your Instrument been impacted by the cultural changes evolving in the time of COVID-19?

It is an unbelievable blessing to be a musician. When I stand onstage after a performance and take in the sights and sounds of a thrilled audience, I am humbled to have contributed my small part to unifying the group of people sitting before me through the immense transcendent power of live music. Simply making people smile is one of the best parts of the job for me. When on Thursday, March 12th, my concert that weekend was cancelled, then soon after that an audition was cancelled. It became increasingly clear that the rest of my spring would follow suit. Even in the absence of getting to play in an orchestra, I wanted to continue making people smile. So, every few days I would record a simple xylophone tune to send to my family, or send some Bach to a handful of folks at my church. In practical terms, I stopped practicing audition excerpts for a month, and I went back to fundamentals – learning new solos on snare drum, xylophone, tambourine, you name it – just for fun. We know that full orchestra concerts may practically be a way off, and reflective of this, my upcoming schedule includes several chamber music concerts this fall. As 2020 progresses, now more than ever I am eager to return to being unified in a room full of people around a love for music, bringing people together to listen and learn, and letting music heal pain and foster love. What has been your most creative moment at MARLI so far?

Upon receiving our instructions from the director, Sean Scanlin, I called up a friend who came over to help me shoot some creative takes. This was my first adventure into the world of video outside of a dry and boring audition tape, and my friend and I had so much fun brainstorming interesting shots. The bass drum and I went across a small creek, we walked up a nearby hill, we cruised down the street...I’m sure the neighbors were very confused, but I had so much fun with this license to think outside of a box, to be creative in ways beyond playing my instrument. Do you have a favorite Resonance Blog entry or Concert Hall Online that you’d recommend?

My favorite one has yet to be released! The percussionists have been working on a few pieces, so keep an eye out. A final note. I would like to express my deep gratitude for the administration and all who planned and made MARLI possible. They have pulled off a gargantuan task, with extraordinary attention to detail, in a very short amount of time. It’s great to see our compeers along for the ride with us too, and having personal connections with such a dedicated group of people makes the distance more tolerable. I’m grateful for this truly unique summer and the wonderful people who made it happen! ––––––––––––––––––––––––––– Gustavo Leite, a returning trumpet fellow, was born in Sao Paulo, Brazil. He is earning a master’s degree at Rice University Shepherd School of Music. What have you learned/experienced that you will carry with you and use your entire career?

Music Academy of the West has always been extremely helpful and supportive to me and all Music Academy fellows. I am extremely honored and happy to be part of this great institution. This summer was a concrete proof that they are not only concerned about our summer experience itself, but with the quality of experience/ education we are receiving while enrolled, and how we will carry this experience to our future as professional artists. During these couple weeks as a fellow, we have had a lot of seminars provided by MARLI that were both inspiring and informative. My main thought, after some of these seminars, is, “How can I be innovative and creative during a period of time that could only offer concerns and negative ideas about my future and the art’s future in general?” The main idea is not to put me down with those thoughts, but have the right mindset and skill to transform those negative thoughts into a boost of motivation to keep trying something new every single day. Also, using this motivation to think about something useful, creative, and innovative that my community might need during this period. I started to not only use this

tool for my music, but incorporating it to my life in general as well. This helps me to engage better with my community and, when this pandemic is over, I can carry that on to my audience. If I had to summarize the answer for this question, I would say that I have learned how to motivate myself and, hopefully others around me, even if the situation is not favorable to us. I am allowing myself to be a human first, find my weaknesses in everything I do, and fixing it. This is a really challenging task because it involves a daily, non-stop self reflection. But it does help me to become a better human being for our society and I am almost positive that would help many others as well. I believe that motivation is the key for everyone’s success, not only for musicians, and MARLI provides this to me every day. How has your work with your instrument been impacted by the cultural changes evolving in the time of COVID-19?

As soon as I got back home from my current school, Rice University, I was impacted by the new and unusual situation that COVID-19 brought to all of us. To be really honest, I was not as motivated and my skills, as a player, started to decrease. After a couple days, I was invited to do a simple project for a Facebook page and this project consisted in recording myself playing any short piece to entertain other people that were in quarantine as well. I accepted it, but every time I listened to myself playing I would hate it. This started to bother me a lot, in a way that I could only be angry and have negative thoughts about my playing. That was the boost I needed to start thinking what was wrong and what was the best, most efficient way to solve/fix those mistakes in a very short period of time. This is something I have learned with my current teachers at Rice, Professor Barbara Butler and Charles Geyer, who are also part of MARLI’s faculty. Since then, I

July 3, 2020 have been having great results in my playing and feeling motivated to find new challenges with my instrument to fix and move to the next level. I am currently not performing outside or with any ensemble. I am using my time to focus in my music and the way I want to sound like. Asking myself how do I want to share my thoughts and emotions through my instrument, which is extremely difficult for me. What has been your most creative moment at MARLI so far?

The most creative moment at MARLI so far is being able to record myself for the MARLI projects. It was a truly challenge for me. Last week, we finished a project with the Brass section and we had to record an audio isolated from our video. The audio part was easier because most of us, musicians, are used to recording ourselves in our daily routine. But the video part was surprisingly difficult. We had a MARLI Seminar, a couple days before this project’s deadline, and the theme was Cinematography and Filming... for Musicians with filmmaker Adam Larsen and light designer Pablo Santiago. This was a particularly incredible class for me because I realized that I have never thought about anything else in my videos besides my sound and music itself. I tried to incorporate most of the tips that both teachers gave us, especially with lighting and different angles, and it was extremely challenging for me. At some point I had to move all my furniture from my living room around and it was a huge mess. My parents were a bit bothered by this mess, but I did like the final result. I am absolutely sure that all fellows experienced the same I did for those projects and had to be really creative in order to submit a high quality material. ––––––––––––––––––––––––––– Connor Alexander Rowe, a tenor trombone returning fellow, is 22. He was raised in Lompoc, California, and earned his bachelor’s degree from Colburn Conservatory. What have you learned/experienced that you will carry with you and use your entire career?

I don’t believe I have the time or space to include everything that I have learned in my first three weeks at MARLI. As far as personal lessons go, being at home 24/7 has certainly taught many of us the true necessity of self-discipline, as well as how difficult it can be to impose a schedule on oneself without any external assistance... I am very grateful for MARLI if for no other reason than the fact that it is preventing me from spending the majority of my days transfixed by Netflix. (!) MARLI is giving us the chance to confront

At the Center of Santa Barbara’s Cultural Conversation | www.VoiceSB.com the most pressing issues facing our industry in a safe and nurturing environment... How do we keep ourselves relevant in an era where we must compete within the largest entertainment industry the world has ever seen? How do we personally ensure that our voices as artists are heard, and how can we use them to promote values that strengthen our global society? How can we change the demographic of an art form that has been, and largely still is, the stomping ground of old, rich, white men? These questions are not new (nor are they the only pertinent ones), but while they would be undertones at a normal summer at the Academy, they have been brought to the forefront this year, which I think is ultimately for the best. When MAW returns to “normal” operation, I think they should be positioned much more prominently in the curriculum. Personally, MARLI has challenged me to let go of the existing boundaries in my mind regarding what is possible in terms of how I approach the mediums available to me. We’ve seen how musicians are using technology to enhance their expression in a variety of ways, from multimedia performance, to virtual concerts within a video game world, to loop pedal technology. My future projects will certainly reflect the new perspective I have gained at MARLI. My time at MARLI, so far, has shown me the value of openness to new ideas, as well as the benefits of the lessons I have been perennially exposed to. Just the other day in my lesson with a member of the London Symphony, I was reminded of one of the earliest things I learned as a student; the power of a relaxed mind and body. The farther along you get as a performer, the easier it becomes to forget some of the most basic and effective ideas. Consistently approaching fundamental aspects of music making with a fresh and richer perspective is the key to lasting success with our instruments. How has your work with your instrument been impacted by the cultural changes evolving in the time of COVID-19?

My perception of myself and Classical music at large has certainly changed since the social justice movement has recently gained so much traction. While I have known for years that I am very privileged to be pursuing the career path that I am, the national narrative has made me take an uncomfortably close look at how I have been complicit in a system that devalues and dehumanizes Black voices and Black lives. I am left with the feeling that I am not doing enough— as a privileged person, it is my duty to use my privilege to help others. As far as my instrument is concerned, I view it as a tool to heal and inspire, but more importantly as a way for me to go places to listen to people’s stories and experiences; dialogue is the key to any successful artistic endeavor. The message we have been hearing in some of our seminars is that whatever we do, it must come from a place of love and inclusivity. If our motivations are true, then whatever action we decide to take will be uplifting and constructive. The classical music industry’s greatest strength is its ability to change itself—this is how it has managed to survive, and in some cases, thrive, while doing the seemingly impossible task of representing 100s of years of culture(s) and beliefs in a world experiencing accelerating cultural change. Once again, the industry must remake itself in such a way as to empower voices that have been muted for too long. These voices will be a source of strength for the art form, and the key to its cultural relevance.

Musica Academy of the West Fellows, just as talented as ever, are enjoying an online summer program – MARLI – and finding the experience is lifechanging. Above: Christine Comer, Gustavo Araujo, Sahel Salam, Connor Rowe, and Claire Satchwell. What has been your most creative moment at MARLI so far?

As in-person collaboration has been made virtually impossible by the pandemic, all of our solo classes have been sadly unaccompanied this year. However, that did not stop me from attempting to remedy this marked absence. I have been using Sibelius (a music notation software that allows you to play back what you have written as a MIDI file), to practice with since I was a freshman in college... For the first class, I played Lars-Erik Larsson’s Concertino for Trombone and String Orchestra. Since I wouldn’t have a pianist, I thought—“Why not try and bring the whole orchestra to class?” So I transcribed all of the string parts into Sibelius, and with the help of my mom (starting the piece at the right time), played along with a MIDI orchestra. It was a little strange playing with an accompaniment that doesn’t follow you at all, but it certainly added a unique “collaborative” aspect to an otherwise purely solo class. Do you have a favorite Resonance Blog entry or Concert Hall Online that you’d recommend?

As far as favorite blog or concert hall entries, I recommend all of them!! Henry Michaels is doing a fantastic job with the blog, and the virtual concerts are all engaging and inspiring. I found the entry, Little Boxes: Unpacking Honegger to be particularly interesting, and if I could only watch a single concert, it would probably have to be Virtual Picnic Concert no. 3, featuring Anya Garpoli and Alyssa Katahara on harp, and Nicholas Caux on double bass. ––––––––––––––––––––––––––– Sahel Salam, a returning fellow and Resident Artist of the Academy of Vocal Arts under the tutelage of Bill Schuman, is 26. He was born in Houston, Texas, and earned his master’s degree at the Royal College of Music in London. What have you learned/experienced that you will carry with you and use your entire career?

I was asked to write my mission statement as an artist. Being challenged to concisely represent who we are and what we believe in was incredibly cathartic, especially during the pandemic. Many of us were feeling a loss of identity (an all too common occurrence among musicians). With wonderful guidance, I rediscovered a sense of purpose from a simple exercise. My mission statement: “I was born at the intersection of two different cultures. Rooted in both worlds, my resolve in my identity guides me toward the future I search out. To convey the beautiful similarities in our shared humanity is my goal.” I have explored and gained much more than I expected from MARLI.

How has your work with your voice been impacted by the cultural changes evolving in the time of COVID-19?

Though shows have taken pause, consistent practice and development are a necessity to artists. The emotional toll, physical circumstances, and lack of resources has affected everyone. To have had the Music Academy’s support and their decision to make MARLI an option, we developing musicians have something to work with and toward. What has been your most creative moment at MARLI so far?

We’ve been working on creating a program, themed around mythical and legendary characters, in order to tell our individual stories and what we represent. Tying in the work we did with our mission statements, I’ve begun making a program that I’m very proud of. ––––––––––––––––––––––––––– Claire Satchwell, a returning viola fellow, lives in Solvang. She is 21 years old, and attends The Juilliard School. What have you learned/experienced that you will carry with you and use your entire career?

One lesson I am continually learning is how to be patient and gentle with myself. I know from personal experience that being surrounded by first rate musicians everyday can lead to extreme self degradation. An example would be simply walking down the hallways at Juilliard. When I’m walking past the practice rooms, I find myself unintentionally listening for a fellow violist, and when I find one, I can’t help but slow down my pace as I pass by the room to ‘check out the competition.’ When I enter my own practice room later in the day, I still remember how that violist sounded, and I begin to tear at my skills and abilities leaving only rubble. Once finished practicing, all that’s left is a person who has been stripped of all passion and joy. Learning to be gentle with myself will always remain the hardest lesson to learn. To be gentle with oneself is to separate your self-worth from what you create and to see your art as unique and rare, not as worse than the violist practicing next to you. How has your work with your instrument been impacted by the cultural changes evolving in the time of COVID-19?

I believe this year has been a real test of an artist’s patience and adaptability. With schools closing midway through the spring semester, students had to be willing to adapt in order to mentally survive. Students all around the world had to quickly shift to online classes and lessons, Continued on Page 28 (digital edition) www.VoiceSB.com

COVID-19 Update from Cottage Health – July 1, 2020

Holiday Weekend Safety: Dr. David Fisk, medical director of infection prevention and control at Cottage Health, has been monitoring COVID-19 hospitalization rates and lab test results. “If I could ask one thing of the community over the holiday weekend, it would be to socially distance,” says Dr. Fisk. “The increasing percentage of COVID-19 tests returning positive in our community, along with the rise of hospitalizations, means the virus is circulating widely in Santa Barbara. To protect our community, now is the time to get back to the habit of keeping physical distance from people outside your household.” www.cottagehealth.org

Cottage Health is caring for a total of 284 patients across all campuses. 219 are acute care patients; 154 acute care beds remain available. In surge planning, capacity is identified for adding 270 acute care beds. Of the 219 acute care patients, 14 patients are on ventilators. 72 ventilators remain available (adult, pediatric and neonatal ventilators). Of the 219 acute care patients, 19 are in isolation with COVID-19 symptoms; 18 are confirmed COVID-19 positive. Of the 19 patients in isolation, nine patients are in critical care.

The not-for-profit Cottage Health is the leader in providing advanced medical care to the Central Coast region. Specialties include the Cottage Children’s Medical Center, Level 1 Trauma Center, Neuroscience Institute, Heart & Vascular Center, Center for Orthopedics, and Rehabilitation Hospital. The Cottage Health medical staff is comprised of more than 700 physicians, many with subspecialties typically found only at university medical centers. Last year, the Cottage Health hospitals in Goleta, Santa Barbara and Santa Ynez Valley provided inpatient care for 21,000 people, treated 80,000 patients through their 24-hour emergency departments and helped deliver 2,100 newborns.

From June 15-21: 2,591 COVID-19 laboratory tests were collected by Cottage Health. Results: 99 positive, 2,471 negative, 21 pending From June 22-28: 3,183 COVID-19 laboratory tests were collected by Cottage Health. Results: 121 positive, 2,436 negative, 626 pending

Music Academy: MARLI Continued from Page 21 all while moving back home for the remainder of the year. Now with everything shifting online, you not only have to have stage presence, but online presence as well. The pressure to adapt and begin to brand yourself on an online platform is challenging, but also presents exciting new possibilities. As we move forward, questions arise: What is the future of classical music? Is this the deadly blow that takes it down? Most of these questions are seeded in deep panic and fear as so many graduating musicians who had dreams of taking orchestra auditions have had to rethink everything. However, from what I have been seeing online, music is thriving! Yes, the future is being reshaped, but we young artists now get to guide and create the music world we want to perform in. Another upside is that performances

are now able to reach far beyond the doors of the concert hall, and the globalization of music has become mandatory. In terms of responding to cultural changes during this pandemic, musicians have been rising to the call by bringing peace, solidarity, and change. What has been your most creative moment at MARLI so far?

Recently, I was able to participate in MARLI’s online production of the fourth movement of Haydn’s London Symphony. Before recording, we were provided with countless resources to expand our knowledge of the stylistic approach and historical context of the piece. This production has been, I believe, my fifth or sixth project where you listen to a recording and play along, and I can definitely say that I am increasingly comfortable with the process. While we are not able to sit in a rehearsal space and discuss where we want to take time and what bowing works in measure 87, I have found there are still ways to be creative within these rigid boundaries. You now have the

chance to experiment with the best angle for your camera to engage the audience and ‘set the stage;’ you can also get your parents involved and give a home concert as they sit behind the camera! I have discovered that creativity in the traditional sense simply has different semantics now. Collaboration now entails listening to a recording and noting where the musician takes time and rehearsing it over and over with the tape... Throughout all these projects, my musical intuition has broadened from better matching my playing to a prerecorded tape which has forced me to react quicker and with greater precision. In a way, playing with a prerecorded tape has become like chamber music more than ever-just some fingerings and bowings are not as open for discussion! Do you have a favorite Resonance Blog entry or Concert Hall Online that you’d recommend?

I would definitely recommend reading Marc Lombardino’s The Hands Behind the Sonata! Lombardino discusses how Haydn’s last piano sonata might have never reached its popularity today if it hadn’t been for female pianist Therese Jansen, who performed the sonata at the time of its composition. I found it very thoughtprovoking to see how “we would do well to go beyond music theory and instead focus on who actually played this piece of music when Haydn first wrote it” (Lombardino) ... In closing, as Lombardino mentions, the creation of music is a collaboration between two or more people. Music is not created in isolation from others, but instead thrives off of and prospers from our friendships and shared experiences.
