Chaplain addresses 21st-century faith

giving old songs a ‘new life’ Original cast of Broadway’s ‘Jersey Boys’ hits on popular music from the ‘60s

Jones to incorporate personal faith journey by Joan Lipscomb Solomon Staff writer What does it mean to be a person of faith in the 21st century? Week One’s chaplain, the Rev. Alan Jones, tackles this quandary headon. In fact, his theme for the week is “The Never-ending Conversation: Being a Person of Faith in the 21st Century.” The chaplain’s sermon at 10:45 a.m. Sunday in the Amphitheater introduces the series with “The Burning Bush: Saying the Unsayable.” In Exodus 3:1-14, God answers Moses’ request for identification by saying, “I am that I am.” At the 5 p.m. Vesper Service on Sunday at the Hall of Philosophy, Jones will share his personal faith journey. The series returns each morning at 9:15 Monday through Friday in the Amp. Monday’s message explores “Life in the Spirit: Education for Freedom.” St. Paul implored his followers,

hen I moved to Chautauqua this summer to report for The Chautauquan Daily, I found something unexpected while I was unpacking shorts and sunscreen for the season. Before I left for college, someone gave me a note written on scrawled cursive on bright, starchy paper that I have taken with me everywhere I move. I took it with me to California, where it was posted on my door on the inside of my room where I saw it every day before I left for class. And I brought it with me 4,000 miles from my Stanford University dorm to Chautauqua for the summer, where it makes its home in my reporting notebook.

hen internationally acclaimed pianist Martina Filjak was 12 years old, she was lying in a hospital bed for one month. Her uncle had come to visit her and brought her a cassette of only one piece, Maurice Ravel’s Piano Concerto in G Major. She listened to the piece over and over again, almost every day. When Filjak left the hospital and returned home, she could play the piece from beginning to end without even practicing. It had been ingrained in her subconscious. This Ravel concerto is the very piece Filjak will perform Saturday as the featured soloist in the last Chautauqua Symphony Orchestra concert of the season, conducted by Music Director Stefan Sanderling. The concert, which starts at 8:15 p.m. in the Amphitheater, also includes Antonin Dvořák’s Symphony No. 9 in E Minor, Op. 95, also called the New World Symphony. The Ravel piece is a jazzy concerto whose color and rhythm reflect Parisian life in the 1930s, Sanderling said. The first movement is melodious and atmospheric with a melancholy character, while the second movement is highly lyrical and reminiscent of a Sergei Rachmaninoff concerto. The third movement is cheerful and “bursting,” looking eagerly toward the future, Filjak said.

Its significance to me wasn’t a traditionally religious one, but it was a way of looking at life, an attitude that we can always move forward. There are probably a handful of people in your life who practically emanate sunshine when they speak. And the person who gave me that note, Lenelle Morse, is one of those people. Lenelle is a first-violinist in the Chautauqua Symphony Orchestra and was my orchestra teacher for 10 years at Canterbury School in Fort Wayne, Ind. She started me on the violin in the third grade and saw me through to the 12th grade. She saw me grow up, just as she did the remarkable number of students she has introduced to the arts.

CONTEMPOR ARY ISSUES FORUM

WEEK NINE CHAPL AIN

Howard to lead forum discussion on lawyers Hale says modern life isn’t all that complicated by Lori Humphreys Staff writer Attorney and author Philip K. Howard is not recommending William Shakespeare’s dictum, “First let’s kill all the lawyers,” but he is convinced that our national and state governments are strangled by too many laws. At 3 p.m Saturday in the Hall of Philosophy, as part of the Contemporary Issues Forum sponsored by the Chautauqua Women’s Club, Howard will argue why “Life Without Lawyers: Restoring Responsibility in America” is necessary — in fact, essential. “People are frozen, paralyzed, by overly detailed rules and fear of lawsuits,” observed Howard, author of

howard

The Death of Common Sense: How Law is Suffocating America and Life Without Lawyers: Liberating Americans From

Too Much Law. Howard has translated his opinion and concerns into action. In 2002 he founded the nonprofit, nonpartisan legal reform coalition Common Good, which is dedicated to “restoring common sense to America,” according to its website. Common Good is an active translation of Howard’s effort to “affirmatively define an area free from legal interference.” It is an effort

to unglue the legal system in the following areas: health care, education, civil justice and the value of play. Though Howard can offer many examples to prove his point, he would look no further than this summer’s efforts to clean up the BP oil spill, which were initially stymied by federal Environmental Protection Agency regulations. However, make no mistake, Howard is not suggesting that law and regulation should be abolished. He said that the answer is not to deregulate, but to have laws that are more purposeful and set boundaries that allow for people’s freedom to act and solve problems. See hOWArd, Page A4

Monday’s message, “Early Morning Rendezvous,” finds Jesus, in Mark 1:35, “in the morning, while it was still very dark, getting up and going out to a deserted place, and there, he prayed.” Tuesday’s topic is “Carpe Diem — Seize the Day.” Moses, in Exodus 7:25 and 8:10, seven days after the Lord had struck the Nile, tells Pharaoh, “Be it according to thy word: that thou mayest know that there is none like unto the Lord our God.” St. Paul, in Ephesians 5:15-

A frequent complaint about modern life is, “It’s all so complicated.” Week Nine Chaplain Cynthia Hale doesn’t see it that way. In her Sunday sermon, she will explain why “It’s Not Complicated.” To Jesus, in John 17:20-23, it’s as simple as loving unity. St. Paul echoes this teaching in Ephesians 4:1-6: “One Lord, one faith, one baptism; one God and Father of all, who is above all and through all and in all.” Hale will begin her series Sunday morning at 10:45 a.m. at the Amphitheater.

Simple truths unite contrasting operas by ALiso n M ATAs | STa FF wrI T er Ph OTOS by R ACH eL K i L Roy

onight, Michael Chioldi gets to enjoy a cathartic dichotomy as he sings two contrasting roles in Chautauqua Opera Company’s final main-stage production of the season. “It’s like therapy for me,” he said. “I get to get a lot out of my system by playing these characters.” The show is the double bill of Rustic Chivalry (Cavalleria rusticana) with music by Pietro Mascagni and The Clowns (I Pagliacci) with music by Ruggero Leoncavallo. It plays at 7:30 p.m. tonight and Aug. 2 in Norton Hall. In Rustic Chivalry, Chioldi plays a lovable man, Alfio, but, in The Clowns, he plays Tonio, a hunchback. “Alfio is a good guy. He’s a hard worker, he’s built this business on his own, he’s the most successful person in town, and everyone loves him,” Chioldi said. “Tonio is not a nice guy. He probably was beat up a lot when he was young, he was made fun of because of his deformities, he’s not particularly attractive. … It’s not one of the nicer men I’ve played.” Chioldi’s presence in each show, however, isn’t the only link between the two operas. The primary connection point is the verismo, or truthful, quality of both. While older operas were about aristocracy, in

these operas, the stories are about everyday people. Consequently, the production is fairly violent and extremely passionate. “This is real visceral opera. This is blood and guts singing,” said Jay Lesenger, artistic/general director for the company. “I think it’s just darn good entertainment.“ In Rustic Chivalry, Turiddù, played by Hugh Smith, has returned from the army and discovered his former lover, Lola, played by Chautauqua Opera Company Studio Artist Jennifer Feinstein, has married Chioldi’s character, Alfio. To console himself, Turiddù has an affair with Santuzza, sung by Leann SandelPantaleo, and she is impregnated. When the show begins, Turiddù is pining for Lola, and the rest of the opera revolves around the repercussions of his inability to be faithful to Santuzza. “He was a good guy, but he’s an example of when his world fell apart, he went down the wrong path. He used Santuzza,” Smith said. “I get frustrated with this character, too, as a male, like, why doesn’t he just take responsibility with her? … He’s really a coward.”

dion brings rock ’n’ roll to amp tonight by Beverly Hazen Staff writer Think back to the music and young love during the late ’50s and early ’60s, and the name Dion should ring a bell of recognition. The music legend comes to Chautauqua at 8:15 p.m. tonight at the Amphitheater for an evening of rock ‘n’ roll and reminiscing. It was in the Bronx of New York where Dion DiMucci was born in 1939, and where his musical skill and style began — on the street corners and in the bars of his neighborhood. “At the age of 12, my uncle purchased a secondhand guitar as a gift for me,” Dion

See OPeRA, Page A4

wrote on his website. “I was soon caught up in the music of Hank Williams and some rhythm and blues, which was odd for a city boy in the 1950s.” The driving, lonesome sound of Williams appealed to Dion, and he collected 70 of Hank’s singles, which he could sing by heart. Dion felt a connection to music and it provided an escape from the call of the streets and gangs, as well as family limits. R&B, blues, doo-wop and rock ’n’ roll all influenced his approach to music. Around the age of 15, Dion considered himself a rebel. See dION, Page A4

Collins finds poetry in photography

Bannon concludes photography week with link to contemplation

by Sara Toth Staff writer

by Laura McCrystal Staff writer

Members of the Chautauqua Opera Company rehearse for tonight’s double bill of Cavalleria rusticana (Rustic Chivalry) and I Pagliacci (The Clowns) at 7:30 p.m. in Norton hall. The production closes Monday evening.

What do you get when you cross poetry with photography? The Chautauqua audience will find out when former United States Poet Laureate Billy Collins speaks with Anthony Bannon, Ron and Donna Fielding Director of George Eastman House, at 10:45 a.m. in the Amphitheater. The format of the morning lecture this morning — with Bannon engaging in conversation with Collins — is similar to the format of the weeks hosted by writer Roger Rosenblatt earlier this summer and two years ago. Collins was Rosenblatt’s first guest in 2008, and is again talking about his work on the Amp stage. It’s just in a different context this time. “We’ll be playing pingpong with the idea of image

— written image and visual image,” Collins said. “You can say that poetry and photography, the pen and the camera, really have nothing to do with each other, but there are connections here.” Theoretically, Collins said, poetry and photography both fit into the idea of time. Both change our sense of the temporal, and both fit into our ideas of noise, sound and silence. There’s actually a genre of poetry that consists of poems about other works of art: ekphrastic poetry. While Collins said an ekphrastic poem is usually about a painting, he felt the term applied to photographs, too. “I’m not sure if this term exists outside my own conjuring of it, but my word of the day is photo-ekphrastic — poems that are specific meditations on photographs,” Collins said. A wider connection be-

Collins

tween poetry and photography, Collins said, is that they are both observational arts — there is even a such thing as an observational poem: the poet looks at something, and describes it. “As the photographer is looking through lens in his observation, the poet is often

stringing images together,” Collins said. “Maybe the observation provokes a memory or a meditation, or maybe an antagonism. I think poets are visual creatures, not exclusively as photographers are, but there’s a big visual component in the poetry.” Collins was U.S. poet laureate from 2001-2003 and has won numerous awards, including fellowships from the National Endowment for the Arts, the New York Foundation for the Arts and the John Simon Guggenheim Memorial Foundation. Collins is currently a distinguished professor at Lehman College of the City University of New York and a senior distinguished fellow of the Winter Park Institute at Rollins College in Florida. See COLLINs, Page A4

This entire week at Chautauqua Institution has been devoted to the craft of capturing a single instant — a photograph is a flash of time. Whether they are “streakers, strollers or scholars” determines what Chautauquans will get out of this week on photography, Anthony Bannon said. But in contrast to the length of an entire week, today he will discuss the power of a photograph in a single instant. Bannon, the Ron and Donna Fielding Director of George Eastman House, helped plan and invite lecturers for Week Five. He will conclude the week with his 2 p.m. Interfaith Lecture, “Contemplative Photography and Thomas Merton,” today in the Hall of Philosophy. In planning this week at Chautauqua Institution,

Bannon said he applied the same ideas that he does for exhibits at George Eastman House: People par- Bannon ticipate on different levels, and he categorizes people as streakers, strollers and scholars. Streakers might have stopped by lectures this week, absorbing a sentence or two from which they can learn, he said. Strollers are more engaged but are casual listeners, whereas scholars are fully engaged in the subjects. The idea of this categorization is that each person brings a different experience and background, and it is important to provide something of interest for each individual.

by Jack Rodenfels Staff writer With projects spanning five continents and more than 30 years of experience, photojournalist Ed Kashi will portray his passion for photography at 10:45 a.m. today in the Amphitheater, where he aims to educate and inspire Chautauquans to take interest in sociopolitical plights around the world. Kashi will touch on some of his projects that he is most passionate about — including documenting the experiences of people living in the Kurdish area in Northern Iraq, the negative impact of the oil industry on the Niger Delta region, modernization in India, and the lives of rural villagers in Madagascar. “It’s going to be a mixture of very serious issues — both geopolitical in nature and issues close to home,” Kashi said. Close to home, Kashi will discuss “Aging in America” — an eight-year project completed in 2003 which launched a traveling exhibition, an award-winning documentary film, a website and a book which was honored as one of the top photo books of 2003 by American Photo. “My goal with ‘Aging in America’ was to paint the portrait of what America will deal with, in the near future,” Kashi explained. “I tried to create a timeless body of work for what I consider one of the pressing issues of our lifetimes.” Kashi, a self-described

he sun is setting, glistening silver and yellow. You are standing in the sea, and waves wash up around your legs. You sway slightly, and your toes dig deeper into the sand. You wonder where these waves come from, where the energy starts. Looking back at the shore, you see it is merely a crust. The ocean is the larger living space, and you are part of it now, connected to all other shores, all other people, through the droplets at your feet. If you can imagine the ocean, the Chautauqua Symphony Orchestra’s concert at 8:15 p.m. tonight in the Amphitheater will bring you to a familiar place.
