PRÊT À PICNIC THE 2019 RAVINIA FESTIVAL SEASON INCLUDES HEAVY HITTERS SUCH AS STING AND A FIRST-TIME APPEARANCE BY LIONEL RITCHIE

Is There a Doctor in the House? TRIFECTA GRILL’S NEWEST “BUSBOY” TAPS HIS MEDICAL KNOW-HOW TO SAVE A CHOKING CUSTOMER

BY DONALD LIEBENSON THE NORTH SHORE WEEKEND

Ravinia Festival President and CEO Welz Kauffman begins his 19th year with North America’s longest-running music festival as the Chicago Tribune’s 2018 Chicagoan of the Year for Classical Music. But he is hardly resting on his laurels. This year’s season will present 140 events between May 31 (Chicago jazz legend Ramsey Lewis is the opener) and September 15. Seventy of the artists, including Tash Saltana ( June 1), Lionel Ritchie ( June 11-12), Lady Antebellum ( July 10), Queen Latifah (August 31), Kesha (September 8) and Morrissey (September 14), will be making their debuts in Ravinia’s Pavilion. Fifty works will be performed at Ravinia for the first time, including “Penelope,” ( July 28) the last piece by Andre Previn, who passed away last February that will be performed by Renee Fleming and the Emerson String Quarter. A summer at Ravinia wouldn’t be the same without Tony Bennett, who, at 92, will perform on June 21.

Dr. William Benge, a Harvard-trained cardiologist, recently retired from working with Northwestern Medicine Lake Forest

Hospital and had some time on his hands. “I’ve been teasing my family that they needed to find me a job,” Dr. Benge says with a laugh. “I was getting a little restless.” Dr. Benge’s daughter, Alina, works at Trifecta Grill in Winnetka. On the Saturday evening before St. Patrick’s Day, the

restaurant found itself one busboy short. “We knew we were going to be busy because it was St. Patrick’s Day weekend so I texted my dad, half jokingly, and asked him if he would mind filling in,” Alina Continued on PG 9

NEWS PRET A PICNIC Cont. from PG 1 heroes and festival mainstays on the schedule include John Prine ( June 8), Buddy Guy ( June 14), Lyle Lovett ( July 23), Chicago (August 10-11), and Common (August 31). Ravinia will host a mini Boomer-palooza with Ringo Starr and the Beach Boys, who will coheadline August 3-4. Leonard Bernstein’s “Mass” and the oratorio “Considering Matthew Shepard,” two of the most ambitious and critically-acclaimed events from the 2018 season, will receive encore performances on July 20 and Sept. 12, respectively. But these highlights just scratch the surface of a festival whose motto takes it cue from the immortal Stephen Sondheim lyric, “Something for everyone,” from Sugarland ( June 30) to the Shanghai Symphony Orchestra (August 16), from Sting (August 23) to the a capella ensemble Stile Antico ( June 18) from comedy (“Weird Al” Yankovich on July 28) to cabaret (Spider Saloff ’s tribute to Rosemary Clooney on July 29) to classic movies accompanied by a live orchestra (“West Side Story” on July 12). The screening of West Side Story, along with the reprise of “Mass” is part of the continuation of last summer’s celebration of Leonard Bernstein’s centennial. Highlights include the firstever at Ravinia full-length production of Candide (August 28) and the suburban tragi-comedy Trouble in Tahiti, a one-act hour-long opera. (it will be performed twice on August 22). This year marks the 75th anniversary of Bernstein’s debut with the Chicago Symphony Orchestra, which took place—you guessed it—at Ravinia.

It would be difficult to upstage any of these artists or events, but the biggest Ravinia debut will occur offstage. Opening later in the summer is the Ravinia Music Box Experience, a 9,500-square-foot building connected to the Ravinia Dining Pavilion by an observation bridge. In addition to a museum space that will open with the Grammy Museum’s “Leonard Bernstein at 100” exhibit, it will feature a 360degree movie experience by the Bob Rogers Company, whose credits include the Abraham Lincoln Library and Museum in Springfield, the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame in Cleveland, and the Ryman Experience at the Ryman Auditorium in Nashville. The movie is a work in progress, Kauffman said in a phone interview. The entire amenity itself—free to Ravinia visitors—is “an exciting venture that might gently present festival-goers an opportunity to experience the grandeur of classical music. We’re going to work to get it just right. Anything new is going to take a while to evolve. That’s the fun part.” The building will also contain a new Ravinia dining option, the rooftop Sting BMO Club, whic h wil l offer “fast eats” and a full bar. The BMO Club is an outgrowth of the success of the al f resco L a w n B a r, which opened

at Ravinia last season. “People want to be outside and enjoy the beautiful Chicago summer,” Kauffman said. “The BMO Club will allow them to eat outside but with an upstairs view overlooking the park.” One of Kauffman’s objectives during his tenure, he said, was to expand the breadth of Ravinia’s programming. This had taken “a lot of shoe leather and persistence,” he said with a laugh. For example, in a city that houses perhaps America’s most listenedto country station, US-99, Kauffman wanted to make country music more of a priority. Booking Carrie Underwood in 2009 was a game-changer that can be seen in the inclusion this year of such popular artists as Lady Antebellum. When asked to name some of the concerts this season to which he is most looking forward, he responded, “(the July 3 Ravinia debut of ) Fred Hersch, a great jazz pianist. ‘Considering Matthew Shepard’ is not dissimilar to ‘Mass’ in that a lot of people who missed it heard from friends how wonderful it was. Among the classical offerings and recitals, there’s violinist Yevgeny Kutik. And who doesn’t want to see Sting? That’s more obvious, but I’ve always been a fan. “We’ve hit the motherlode, quality-wise,” he enthused. For more information about the season ahead, call 847-266-5100 or visit ravinia.org.

NEWS DOCTOR IN THE HOUSE Cont. from PG 1 says. “Dad only asked me one question—what should he wear? After telling him to grab a green shirt and black pants, he was on his way.” Fifteen minutes after he arrived at the restaurant and put on his apron, Dr. Benge was bussing the first table of his first post-retirement shift when another restaurant employee alerted him that someone might be choking. “We went right over to the table and the woman couldn’t talk, couldn’t speak, couldn’t really move, and she was making this sound that made it clear to me that she was choking,” says Dr. Benge. He then administered the Heimlich maneuver, a tool he had only used once before in his decades of practicing medicine. “I went behind her and gave her an abdominal thrust that was enough for her to be able to swallow,” adds the doctor. “It was only a few minutes before she and her husband were once again enjoying their dinner—albeit in tiny bites.” While Dr. Benge was tending to the victim, another restaurant staffer had called 911. Although the choking had subsided, the paramedics couldn’t leave without first assessing the woman for themselves. “This older couple was

a little embarrassed by all of the fuss, but I told them the paramedics couldn’t leave until they saw that she was doing well,” Dr. Benge says. As Trifecta returned to their Saturday normal, its employees had a moment to catch their breaths and reflect. “I seriously wonder what would have happened had my dad not been here,” says Alina. “He just jumped into action without even thinking—he knew exactly what to do.” Dr. Benge said he strangely had a thought while he was driving to the restaurant that night that wouldn’t it be something if there was some kind of medical emergency that would require his expertise. “I was thinking it would be something like a heart attack—not someone choking,” he says. “Talk about being in the right place at the right time,” says Patrick O’Neill of Dr. Benge, who along with his wife Mary, owns Trifecta Grill. “I’m sure he didn’t think he’d need to put his medical skills to work while he was helping us out.” O’Neill was also quick to add that he’s going to hold a workshop for his employees on how to administer the Heimlich should another situation like this ever arise. “When I was telling this crazy story to my wife Linda after work that night, she asked me if I told the couple that I was a cardiologist,”

says Dr. Benge. “I didn’t. And it’s important for people to know that they don’t need to be a doctor to have this skill. Everyone should know how to give the Heimlich.” Before the couple left Trifecta that night, the choking v i c t i m’s husband tried to give Dr. Benge a $20 tip for his efforts, but the good doctor waved off the generous gesture. “I was happy I was there to help.”

OB Won Loyola Gold star winger O’Brien named Male High School Hockey Player of the Year BY BILL MCLEAN THE NORTH SHORE WEEKEND

It was supposed to be a big day for a little guy atop his backyard ice rink. A pair of laced-up skates enveloped Eamon O’Brien’s feet for the first time. The Wilmette resident was an old 1-year-old back then, maybe a young 2-year-old. But his skate blades never hit the ice that day. “My dad [the late Tim O’Brien] put me on a sled and pulled me around the rink,” O’Brien, now a Loyola Academy senior, says. “He pulled my sister [Abigail] and my older brother [Devin] around that day, too. There we were, the three of us, in skates, all of us behind our dad.”

of Ohio, Iowa and Xavier. Wherever he ends up, he’ll unpack his pair of skates in a dorm room. And maybe, just maybe, a sled. Happy (snowy) trails, Eamon. New Trier Green: New Trier’s Mark Ashmore masterfully tipped in a shot by John Kane in the second period, and captain Bobby Soudan notched his 35th goal of the season on a 5-on-3 later in the period in Green’s 2-0 defeat of reigning champion Loyola Academy Gold in last weekend’s AHAI state title game at United Center. It was NT Green’s third state championship in four years and 15th overall. NT Green sophomore goalie Preston Watts had 14 saves. His counterpart, LA backup Matthew Choate, collected 31 saves, many of the spectacular variety. Soudan was named Most Valuable Player of the game.

“Kind of quiet around the coaches, but I imagine [Eamon O’Brien] wasn’t so quiet around his teammates in the locker room. I’m guessing he had quite a locker-room presence.”

Some two years later, Eamon, in skates again, and his father, a youth hockey coach, entered Wilmette Centennial Ice Rink. That would be the day, at last, when the tyke would glide around a sheet of ice and envision doing what his dad did—play hockey for Team Gold, in the early 1980s—at Loyola Academy. Not quite. “Too afraid,” Eamon recalls. “My first time near a real rink, and I was too afraid to skate. “My dad carried me around the rink instead.” Eamon O’Brien did some significant lifting on skates this winter, helping Loyola Academy Gold reach the Amateur Hockey Association Illinois (AHAI) state championship game at United Center in Chicago for the second year in a row on March 22. Named the 2018-19 JJ O’Connor Male High School Player of the Year, the 5-foot-9, 160-pound O’Brien blasted a shot, after receiving a nifty drop pass in the first minute of the first period, toward New Trier Green sophomore goaltender Preston Watts. Watts stopped it, and Green struck for two secondperiod goals in a 2-0 victory for the program’s 13th state championship under coach Bob Melton. O’Brien, a year earlier, had helped LA Gold capture its first state title in 22 years with a 4-2 defeat of Stevenson High School. The consistent, loud reminder from the stands, the shouts from Tim

16

NT varsity girls: Fenwick edged reigning champion New Trier 3-2 in the AHAI state championship game at United Center on March 22. NT sophomore Ella Huber scored a goal and assisted on the other. Sophomore forward Sabrina Shvartsman tallied NT’s first goal, and sophomore forward Kate Carfagnini provided the assist on Huber’s goal. NT senior defenseman Madeline Babnik earned Cammi Granato Female High School Player of the Year honors. The 2018-19 Girls High School Coach of the Year was NT’s Lenny Munson. POY BOY: Loyola Academy Gold senior winger Eamon O’Brian was named JJ O’Connor Male High School Player of the Year. He and 11 teammates played in their second straight AHAI state championship game at United Center last weekend. Reigning state champion Gold lost 2-0 to New Trier Green.

O’Brien—“Move your feet, 26!”—that Eamon had heard way more than 26 times during his Mite seasons in a No. 26 sweater must have had something to do with his steady development from fearful skater to fearless forward. O’Brien, wearing jersey No. 21 as a teen, dished an assist in that state championship contest in 2018. So claimed the score sheet. “I don’t know,” says O’Brien, a speedy, spirited, sandpaper-ish winger. “I got credit for an assist, but I don’t think I deserved credit for it. Winning state, right afterward, it didn’t feel real. What a game, what a day that was. Exciting. After a big goal, the one by [Championship game Most Valuable Player] Nick Liebers, my helmet hit Nick’s jaw pretty hard during the celebration.” Twelve LA Gold members from the 2017-18 season returned for another shot at experiencing pure joy on the home ice of the Chicago Blackhawks. LA’s skaters had entered last weekend’s big game with a 2-3 record against New Trier Green (62-7-1) this winter, including a 2-0 victory in the Scholastic

Hockey League playoff final. O’Brien finished with 15 goals and 15 assists in SHL regular-season games, nearly matching his 15-goal, 17-assist league season a year ago. “Heart and grit, refuses to lose,” LA Gold co-coach DJ LaVarre says of O’Brien, one of four LA all-staters (with Liebers, goaltender Drew Shearson and Aidan Finegan) in a 49-13 season. “He picked up speed since last year and improved in all other facets of the game. But the jump he made from his sophomore season with us to his junior season was a big one, huge. Eamon is pretty quick, shifty. On the ice he usually provided us with an instant shot in the arm. “Kind of quiet around the coaches,” the co-coach adds, “but I imagine he wasn’t so quiet around his teammates in the locker room. I’m guessing he had quite a locker-room presence.” Eamon O’Brien’s future? Something related to business, likely. His father majored in business. Big brother and former Gold goalie Devin majors in business at Miami (Ohio) University. Eamon’s list of colleges he’s considering is down to three: Miami

Coming up aces at ZCenter BY BILL MCLEAN ILLUSTRATION BY BARRY BLITT

The condition of the three tennis courts dismayed Ali Barnett. She drove past them in New York, some 10 years ago. She was a sophomore in high school and already a veteran varsity tennis player. Each empty court at the public facility lacked a net. Each empty court sported skateboard skid marks—wall graffiti’s cousins. Barnett, who grew up on Long Island and volunteered at two U.S. Open Tennis Championships in New York City, wanted to do something, anything, to restore the courts, to see young tennis players on the three courts running and hitting winners and smiling. “I started a summer tennis program for underserved kids,” Barnett, sitting in a booth at Country Kitchen in Highland Park, says. “It was sad to me, noticing unused courts. I went to local tennis shops and asked for donations. They donated tennis rackets and tennis balls.” Nets and netters reappeared on the courts. Skateboarders had to find another place to roll. Barnett ran the program for two summers. “Your best shot in tennis?” I ask. “My forehand,” the humble 27-year-old replies somewhat hesitantly, fearing the answer would make her sound boastful. “Any topspin?” I ask. “Some topspin,” she says, a slight smile forming above her order of scrambled eggs, a cup of mixed fruit and a glass of orange juice. Ali Barnett, a Highland Park resident, also serves quite well—off the court. For more than two years, she has been the director of development at Zacharias Sexual Abuse Center (ZCenter), the lone rape crisis center in Lake County. In fiscal year 2018 it was a haven for 232 survivors who were served in emergency rooms. A total of 1,030 clients underwent counseling in the same 12 months. One welcoming ZCenter building is located in Gurnee, the other in Skokie. From July 1, 2017 to June 30, 2018, more than 13,000 students in Lake County schools received prevention education from ZCenter personnel. Founded in 1983, the nonprofit’s mission is to provide a place where survivors of sexual assault and abuse can heal, and to mobilize the community toward action to end sexual violence. “I don’t consider what I do a job,” Barnett says. “I’m helping—all of us at ZCenter are helping— those who don’t have a voice, those who need to be believed and validated and empowered. It’s heartbreaking, every single case. I’ve heard some people say the topic of sexual abuse is depressing, numbing. I don’t look at it that way. “It’s not depressing,” she adds, “when it’s addressed and each victim uses our center as a bridge to healing.” Among ZCenter’s generous donors are Highland Park Community Foundation and Healthcare Foundation of Highland Park. Barnett provides statistics about sexual abuse and assault. The numbers? They’re awful. They’re harrowing. Abuse or assault takes place every 98 seconds. A child is abused or assaulted every eight minutes. One in four girls is abused or assaulted before

18

the age of 18. One in six boys is abused or assaulted before the age of 18. One in three women is abused or assaulted on college campuses. ZCenter services are free. Its services: counseling; 24-hour support line (847-872-7799), which features a partnership with a translation service; medical and legal advocacy; professional training for first responders, medical staff, faith-based leaders and others who work with survivors of sexual abuse; and prevention education programs for students (pre-kindergarten through college). ZCenter’s 7th annual Race to Zero 5K & 8K Run/Walk will be staged on April 14 at Independence Grove Forest Preserve in Libertyville. April is Sexual Assault Awareness Month. The soothing sight of a fireplace greets visitors near the front door at both ZCenter sites. In the warm, expansive lobby area in the Gurnee building, Frank the Bear, a 5-foot-something stuffed animal, sits casually at the end of a couch to the left of the fireplace, one hind leg slightl y bent. Frank, Barnett assures me, moves around (presumably with the help of humans). ZCenter staffers hand a considerably smaller version of Frank to sexual-abuse victims in ERs. Instant comfort. ZCenter contains critical spaces inside, from art and play therapy rooms to a training room for its 100-plus volunteers, who served for more than a combined 3,600 hours in fiscal year 2018. Chicago Bears rookies built the outdoor playground at the Gurnee location in 2015. All ZCenter hallways are wide. For a reason. For a significant reason. “A power dynamic does not exist when people walk sideby-side in a spacious hallway,” Barnett says. Ali— the daughter of Jed, a doctor, and Robin, a teacher and former social worker—traversed the

| SATURDAY MARCH 30 | SUNDAY MARCH 31 2019

paths inside academic buildings at Northwestern University, earning a degree in Learning and Organizational Change. She then oversaw, as an account manager in Aetna’s healthcare IT consultancy, vital benefits technology for large corporations. At NU she met another tennis enthusiast, Sam Barnett, who would net a PhD in neuroscience and embark on a career in the financial and healthcare industries. Sam Barnett and Ben Woldenberg were Highland Park High School tennis teammates and captured the doubles championship at the state meet in 2008. Ali and Sam’s first date started with dinner and ended with a comedy show in Chicago. “I wanted to get to the show early so we wouldn’t be forced to sit near the front,” Ali recalls. “You know what standup comics often like to do. They like to pick on the audience members sitting near the front. They like to embarrass them. “We sat in the back.” They got married in 2016. They’re still avid tennis players. Sam, somehow, has found the time to play in professional singles and doubles tournaments in the U.S. and abroad. Ali continues to rely on her forehand, the one with a smidgen of topspin, in between yoga and Pilates sessions and cherished chunks of time with the couple’s Golden Retriever, Troy. “The sweetest boy,” Ali says. “Troy is also well-behaved and smart. We’d like him to become a therapy dog someday.” The day Barnett learned about Zacharias Sexual Abuse Center was the day she read the alarming statistics the center strives to reduce. Every year. “I had also read victims’ stories,” she says. “So many adults, too many children, need help healing every day. ZCenter is a special place for them, I had discovered while researching it. I didn’t just want to work for a nonprofit, something I had thought about for a while; I wanted to be a part of an organization that’s positive and committed to advocacy and caring and prevention. “All of us at ZCenter want to work ourselves out of our jobs.”

Ali Barnett

Zacharias Sexual Abuse Centers are located at 4275 Old Grand Avenue in Gurnee and at 4232 Dempster Street in Skokie. Visit zcenter. org or call the main office at 847-244-1187 for more information. Ali Barnett’s email address is abarnett@zcenter.org. THE NORTH SHORE WEEKEND
