Midtown madness Readers weren’t shy about sharing their opinions on a new proposal for Parcel 5 at Midtown downtown (News, November 2). The 25-story glass-and-steel structure was proposed by local resident Fraser Smillie and Rochester architect Bud DeWolff.

“Here’s another chance to do something right? THIS monstrosity is someone’s idea of doing something right? I still have to wonder if this is some sort of April Fools’ joke which just didn’t happen to fall on or near April 1. ROCHESTER MUSICIAN

“I think what we have done is sort of stir the pot a little bit by saying, ‘Here’s another chance to do something right.’” Well, you see, we have a problem here. Rochester already built properties like the one Smillie is proposing, and they only contributed to Rochester being a nonplace to be. We don’t need more megaplexes. BRIAN MILBURN

“It’s unlikely that the city would choose the open-space plan, which would deprive it of tax revenue.” I think that assumption sells the Visionary Square proposal short. Having a real public square would increase property tax values of every property downtown and would earn much more tax revenue than a building that will ultimately get tax breaks and credits and be undervalued to pay little taxes.

architecture? A la 1970. The building looks like it’s from a comic book (back when they were nerdy, and before nerdy was cool), and the PowerPoint just confirms its absurdity. It starts off by not answering any of its own questions. Then it throws in a spelling error, and just panders to the mayor for the rest of it. History lesson: The Eiffel Tower was built for the French Revolution’s 100th anniversary. It was a temporary structure that was supposed to be taken down after 20 years. It wasn’t taken down due to its scientific research benefits, then later for its military advantages. Then it became a national icon. To bemoan building a “fix” for a specific current need, and then almost immediately laud the benefits of and the inspiration of another world famous “fix” for a specific current need is preposterous. Or maybe it’s “iron-y.” DAN

URBAN JOURNAL | BY MARY ANNA TOWLER

Looking for leadership for our next four years This column was written with a sense of dread. Given our publication deadlines, it was written before the polls close, but regardless of the election results, on November 9 we’ll be entering a new phase of a very troubling time. Eight years ago, the presidential campaign ended in an atmosphere of optimism. Certainly not everybody liked the results, but Barack Obama’s popular vote margin was sizable, and the country’s mood seemed positive. Hopeful. This year? Seems to me that no matter what the outcome, Americans who voted for Donald Trump will be angry – celebratory, if he wins, certainly, but angry nonetheless. Those of us who voted for Hillary Clinton will be troubled, discouraged by the vitriolic campaign and worried, if she’s elected, about what Congressional Republicans’ might do come January. Worse still, many Americans didn’t want either candidate or are so alienated from the political process that they don’t care who wins. It will be difficult for the new president – regardless of who it is – to gain their respect and support. All this when there are so many challenges, and so much that needs to be done. If we’re to accomplish anything, we’ll have to be far more united than we are. We’ll have to start healing our multiple fractures. And given the bitterness of the presidential campaign and the bitterness in Congress, I suspect the healing will have to start at the local level, not the national. I’d like to think that’s possible, and certainly there are plenty of organizations and institutions capable of helping. Some of them have been trying to overcome our racial, ethnic, and religious divisions for years.

Gary Stern

resulting in an influx of new residents, restaurants, offices, and an eclectic collection of retail. Gary wasn’t the only person whose efforts led to the dynamic growth that our Neighborhood of the Arts has experienced. Visionary, persistent neighborhood leaders sparked it, and in addition to Gary, numerous residents, businesses, institutions, and government leaders have carried it on. But Gary believed intensely in it, invested heavily in it, and made an enormous contribution in helping to shape it into a community that is the delight that it is today. Gary has helped spur the city’s revitalization. And all of us owe him an enormous debt of gratitude.

Whether a city has a healthy, vibrant future is dependent on a lot of things. But a key component is a group of developers who have faith in the city, who will invest time and money and energy in it, and who are visionary. Two years ago, we lost one of them, Buckingham Properties’ Larry Glazer. Last week, we lost another: Gary Stern, whose vision and determination transformed an old printing plant into a thriving, multi-use complex, died on November 3. Gary and his Village Gate project have been long-time neighbors of this publication, and we’ve watched as he bought and developed one property after another,

Political leaders will have to be involved in our healing, and what I’ve seen from some of them recently isn’t encouraging.”

But political leaders will have to be involved in that healing, and what I’ve seen from some of them recently isn’t encouraging. For example: A few weeks ago, I watched a panel discussion about politics featuring two current elected officials, both of whom are from the suburbs, and two former elected officials from the city. Some of what they said was downright inspiring. The four acknowledged the problems in today’s politics, but they also talked about politics as a public service. All four clearly believed they could help people through elected office. continues on page 8

Bowers, a graduate of Rochester Institute of Technology and certified passive home designer, says he’s confident the home he designed will be quite comfortable. The property, which is located at 340 Quaker Meeting House Road, will be open for tours on Friday, November 11, from 1 p.m. to 6 p.m. and Saturday, November 12, from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. in conjunction with International Passive House Days. Passive homes originated in Germany about 30 years ago and are just starting to be built in Upstate New York, Bowers says. They use a configuration of structural components such as insulation and specially designed windows to achieve maximum energy efficiency. “As many windows as possible in this house are facing south,” Bowers

says. “And an open floor plan is going to work better.” If solar were added to the Honeoye Falls structure, the allelectric home would have zero energy costs, he says. The homes capture heat from the sun and, combined with an airtight design, they use about 90 percent less energy to heat and cool and about 60 percent less energy overall than a standard home, reports Mother Earth News. “The great thing about passive homes is they can be built to any shape or size,” Bowers says. There’s no limit to what can be designed, from log cabins to multi-family residences.” “People think that a home like this has to be expensive, and it doesn’t,” he says. “And there’s no reason why a developer can’t build [a track of ] homes like this.”

What followed was a difficult conversation between Clarise Coleman and her son because about half of Chase’s aides and educators are white and some are extremely close to him. How do you explain that this was just one white man who behaved badly?

COMMUNITY | BY TIM LOUIS MACALUSO

Fear and anxiety at Cobbs Hill Clarise Coleman, like many African-American parents, said she hoped she would never need to have “the talk” with her son, Chase. Many black parents say they have to tell their children, especially their sons, to be careful about how they’re perceived by white people – some of whom may automatically view their children as threats. Instead Coleman had to have two discussions with him: one about his disability — Chase is one of the roughly 3.5 million people in the US who have autism — and the other about racism. The first discussion came after a birthday party several years ago when a couple of children noticed that Chase needed help tying his shoes. After some children teased him, Chase told his mother he wanted to leave. That led to a conversation about how some people treat others, she said in a phone interview on Monday morning. “’Do you know when someone is being nice to you, and do you know when someone is being mean to you?’” she asked. “And he knew the difference.” The racism talk came only last month when Martin MacDonald of Pittsford admitted that he shoved Chase, 15, to the ground. The altercation took place in Cobbs Hill Park where Chase, who lives in Syracuse, was participating in a cross country race. MacDonald, who is white, told police that Chase, who is nonverbal, was acting strange and appeared to be on drugs, according to reports. MacDonald, who has pleaded not guilty to second-degree harassment, said that his car was broken into by a black youth sometime prior to the

incident, the Washington Post reported. He said he was afraid that Chase was going to steal his car. What followed was a difficult conversation between Coleman and her son because about half of Chase’s aides and educators are white and some are extremely close to him. How do you explain that this was just one white man who behaved badly? Clarise Coleman said. Another issue: Some of the behaviors that MacDonald attributed to Chase are consistent with autism spectrum disorder and are often misread. “Kids with autism look like everybody else on the block,” says Laura Silverman, a child psychologist at the University of Rochester Medical Center. And often it’s not until a person tries to communicate with an individual with autism that the disorder becomes apparent. The abilities of children on the autism spectrum vary widely from low functioning to college-level skills, Silverman says. But many have difficulty with social interaction, and their ability to communicate is sometimes limited to the literal, almost to the extreme, she says. Many autistic children lack the back-and-forth responsiveness that’s typical of conversational speech. They tend to repeat words and behaviors instead, Silverman says. Some children may get confused and their anxiety level rises in situations that alter from familiar routines, such as getting lost, says Shanna Jamanis and Dawn VoglerElias, co-directors of Nazareth College’s interdisciplinary program on autism. These characteristics are often misinterpreted by people who have never interacted with someone who has autism.

Chase Coleman PROVIDED PHOTO

Chase has gone from being a shy kid who would only eat about three or four types of food, and who was sensitive to crowds and smells, to a caring and social young man, Clarise Coleman said. She worried most that his special kindness would retreat after his experience at Cobbs Hill. “That part of him I always want to stay,” she said. “I just don’t want him to hate.”

about turbine noise and flicker. While the concerns get raised a lot, scientific research hasn’t found a definitive link between the whooshing and flickering of moving blades or the low-frequency sounds from the turbine, and health impacts; Apex representatives point to a collection of peerreviewed studies saying there’s no link. SOS members also don’t like the state approval process for the projects because it takes decision-making power away from local officials and because it’s so technical that it’s not accessible to the average person, Kremer says. They also object to the height of the turbines, which would surpass the tallest structures in the region, she says. “This is very much different than either the wind turbine projects that they’ve seen around the state, and certainly different than anything these counties have encountered,” Kremer says. SOS raises another concern. The group, as well as the Genesee Valley Audubon Society and the Nature Conservancy of Central and Western New York, say that putting big turbines so close to the lake shore could kill large numbers of migrating birds. (Scientific studies differ on the threat that turbines pose to birds.) The turbines would be within a major songbird and raptor migratory flyway. For

the songbirds, the shore and the farms along it serve as important stopover sites following overnight flights across Lake Ontario. Raptors ride currents caused by warming ground-level air to ease their trip around the lake. “I like to say we’re not against the project; we’re against the poor placement of the project,” says June Summers, president of the Genesee Valley Audubon Society. Summers and local Nature Conservancy director Jim Howe say the best solution is to move the turbines back at least three miles from the shore and to make sure the proposal is thoroughly vetted for its potential impact on wildlife. If the project remains as proposed, additional measures, such as stopping the turbines during peak migration season, should be considered, they say. Apex representatives say they’re preparing detailed wildlife and turbine location studies. Siting, in a broader sense, will continue to be one of wind power’s biggest challenges. The projects take up a lot of space, and the more land any development covers, the greater the potential for conflict. “The Nature Conservancy is very supportive of wind power, but like any energy source, we need to be very careful where it’s sited,” Howe says. “I think environmental considerations have to part of that siting process, as do human considerations, too.”

They talked about the importance of character, the importance of “not demonizing people,” of listening to “the other side to understand why they feel the way they do.” And then it was time for questions from people in the audience, many of whom were high school students. And at that point, one of the key divisions in the country – our separateness, our lack of knowledge of those not like us, and our failure to take responsibility for the common good – exhibited itself. “What will you do to stop the youth violence in the city?” asked a Rochester student. The response from one of the officials from the suburbs: “I can’t speak for the city.” He said it was important to get “the community” involved. But there was no sense that this elected official thought he was part of the community he was referring to. No sense that he felt he bore any responsibility. The community he held responsible was within the city limits. And then we have State Assembly member Joe Errigo, who dumped on a Rochester neighborhood he grew up in, insisting on Evan Dawson’s WXXI show that it is now so dangerous that he wouldn’t go there – even “in an armored car, because that’s how dangerous it is.” No, it’s not. And the D&C’s David Andreatta deftly documented that by visiting the family of Eduardo Alonso, current owner of the house of Errigo’s childhood. Told about Errigo’s “armored car” comment, Alonso had the perfect response: “Does he think we live in Afghanistan or something?” No neighborhood in Rochester is so dangerous that you should venture in only in an armored car. But unless Errigo was deliberately lying, he was just repeating a myth and hasn’t felt any responsibility to find out whether it’s true. I’m not sure how we reach people like Errigo. I’d like to think that elected officials feel a responsibility to search out the truth – and to get to know communities that border the district they serve. They serve all of us, not just the people who can vote for them. But our divisions are incredibly strong and deeply ingrained. It’ll take a lot of effort, on all our parts, to move beyond them. Healing will need to start with getting to know one another, with being well informed. And that needs to start with elected officials. That’s a key part of being a leader. Maybe it’s time for some crossdistrict listening tours.

Last winter, Genesee Brewing’s Salted Caramel Chocolate Porter was everywhere. The porter became one of the bestselling beers at Wegmans locations across seven states, boosted by a feature in Wegmans’ Menu Magazine. Beer drinkers around Rochester were eagerly talking about the porter because of its distinctive, successful combination of flavors. It is not hard to imagine why sales soared. Rochesterians know it all too well: months of blistering cold and flurries are ahead, and nights on the lake are exchanged for nights by a fire.

As more local brewers begin to see what sells well during the colder months, their offerings will tend to skew “a little boozier, a little darker,” says Patrick Meehan, brewer at Swiftwater Brewing (378 Mt. Hope Avenue). Swiftwater itself will offer an imperial stout that has been aging inside whiskey barrels for six months. It may not have those holiday spices like anise, coriander, or licorice that are prominent in some winter brews, but Meehan labels it as a “very winter appropriate beer.” Three Heads Brewing is sticking with a more conservative offering this winter as well. Both its Hippy Holidays Red Lager and Baltic Porter are suitable winter beers — albeit for different reasons. The Hippy Holidays Red Lager is made with centennial hops, which gives the drink a pinier taste suitable for the season. At 10.4 percent ABV, the Baltic Porter is a pick-me-up for the days where your digits are about to freeze. Both beers are available on tap at Three Heads Brewing (186 Atlantic Avenue) as well as in 22-ounce bottles in various locations. The Lost Borough Brewing (543 Atlantic Avenue) is also trying to diversify itself in an increasingly crowded winter market. The brewery will continue to have its normal rotation of stouts and porters, but will try to separate itself with two offerings this season. Cookie lovers might appreciate the Gingerbread Brown Ale coming around Thanksgiving, and December will bring an Apple Pie Ale, made in collaboration with Embark Ciderworks. According to Meehan, Swiftwater sees an overall uptick in business during the winter months, and the trend is reflected at other Rochester breweries and bars — some of that can be attributed to popular “bar holidays” like the evening before Thanksgiving and December 23. Sometimes the only way to deal with a Rochester winter is by putting on some liquid layers.

Now, two Eastman professors of composition — the Mexican-born musicians Carlos Sánchez-Gutiérrez and Ricardo ZohnMuldoon — will present the world premiere of the multimedia work “Don’t Blame Anyone” on Wednesday, November 16. This new opera theater piece includes collaborative performances by Eastman’s BroadBand Ensemble, PUSH Physical Theatre, La Coperacha Puppetry Group, video by filmmaker and Eastman alumnus Xuan, and a quartet of Carlos Sánchez-Gutiérrez singers that includes new music maven and soprano Tony Arnold. In the opera, Arnold plays the character known as “the author,” who battles the demons of writer’s block in an attempt to create lasting and meaningful art. Among the other characters are what Sánchez-Gutiérrez describes as “amorphous creatures,” ideas not yet fully formed that act as a kind of choir in support of the drama. Ricardo Zohn-Muldoon The puppets and costumes featured in “Don’t Blame Anyone” (“No Se Culpe a Nadie” in Spanish) are fantastical and imbued with a cryptic surrealism. The opera’s creatures look a lot like tardigrades, those mysterious, microscopic animals colloquially known as “water bears,” which can withstand long periods of starvation, extreme temperatures, exceedingly high pressures, and even dangerous Soprano Tony Arnold amounts of ionizing radiation. PHOTOS BY HANNA HURWITZ While the visuals — somewhat similar in tone to those in the Guillermo del Toro film “Pan’s Labyrinth” — are a little discomforting, they’re also profoundly imaginative and fascinating. Adding to that the musical styles of both composers, the visceral combines with the otherworldly in a way that accentuates a sense of wonder, mysticism, and even dread. This ambitious artistic endeavor benefits from the official involvement of the Mexican government — amid an American political landscape blanketed with the long shadow of Donald Trumpera, anti-immigrant discrimination and xenophobia. The operatic premiere begins to take on a major cultural significance in Rochester and beyond.

Before Sánchez-Gutiérrez and Zohn-Muldoon began teaching at Eastman, they knew one another in Mexico as aspiring young musicians. Coming up together, the two composers’ ties to contemporary music were hazier than they are here in Rochester, where the performance of new music is prevalent due to Eastman Schoolaffiliated ensembles like Musica Nova, Ossia, and Eastman BroadBand. “This idea of art is a very local thing, because when we were growing up in our generation, the idea of contemporary music was something that was happening in Paris — it was Pierre Boulez in Paris,” ZohnMuldoon says. “And so now, I think the sense that is much more liberating, this idea of contemporary music is music that you make today and that you make true to your personal history.” The relationship between this personal history and the “American music” tradition, though not necessarily straight-forward, is nuanced. “I share the idea of ‘Yes, if we are in America, we should write music that reflects what we do and who we are and where we are,’” Sánchez-Gutiérrez says. “And in that sense, you know, we are continuing that tradition, and we do believe that it is important to create music that is about our experience, whether it’s American in the specific sense — you know, US-based — or Latin American or North American.” Mexico’s legislature and cultural administration — the Mexican Chamber of Deputies and the Ministry of Culture, to be specific — allocated and distributed earmarked funds in order to finance the production of the opera here in Rochester. The Mexican Embassy (led by Alberto Fierro, the executive director of the Mexican Cultural Institute in Washington, DC) and Consulates (with New York City-based Consul General Diego Gomez, who plans to attend the Rochester premiere) provided additional support through its communication outlets to promote the work. The Mexican premiere of “Don’t Blame Anyone” will take place on Thursday, November 24, at Guadalajara’s Teatro Diana. In a recent email interview, Fierro acknowledged the opera’s significance during the turbulent debate on immigration and a volatile US presidential campaign. “The opera written and composed by two Mexican musicians and university professors shows that there are many very highly qualified Mexican immigrants in the US that contribute to the cultural and academic life of the United States,” says Fierro, who also serves as the Mexican Embassy’s Counsellor for Culture and Education in the US. “They work and collaborate with American institutions, and were able to produce a performance that will have binational transcendence, being financed and presented by institutions of both countries. There has been always a profound dialogue between Mexican and American artists and artistic institutions.”

Antonio Camacho and his non-profit organization El Arte de los Titeres — of which the puppetry group La Coperacha is a part — provided “hands-on” supervision and leadership, without which the opera would never have been produced. As for the presentation of “Don’t Blame Anyone,” with

its myriad artistic mediums — music, dance, drama, puppetry, visual art, and poetry — and its “meta” plot, Zohn-Muldoon sums it up best: “It’s a story about artists. ‘How do you create art?’” he says. Initially the composers pursued an external narrative, but soon found that it was far more interesting for the opera to become a kind of artistic memoir. “In a way, the opera is about this experience, about three guys getting together, trying to come up with a story,” ZohnMuldoon says. “That’s the story.” The third guy in that story is Darren Stevenson, the co-founding artistic director of PUSH Physical Theatre. Stevenson, Zohn-Muldoon, and Sánchez-Gutiérrez would get together, look through original drawings by Mexican illustrator José Ignacio Solórzano, “and based on what each of us brought onto the table — the poetry that we individually liked, the imagery that we all could contribute that was close to us — you know, little by little, by having these gatherings, an actual work emerged,” Sánchez-Gutiérrez says. “It was very, very seamless, you know,” he adds. “We would just talk about these things, and Ricardo would mention a line of poetry by Raúl Aceves, and then automatically Darren would get up and mime it, act it out for us. And then that would give me, for example, the idea for a musical setting that worked with it. It really was created that way, absolutely.” Sánchez-Gutiérrez is quick to distinguish between merely coming up with an idea and actually bringing that idea to fruition. “Anyone can come up with ideas. Ideas are not hard to produce,” he says. “Courage is very important for me. Courage as understood as forcing yourself to be in the same room with inspiration or with ideas that are sometimes scary and dangerous.” Beyond the creative process itself, the human takeaway from the opera — and how it was written — is beautiful, direct, and deceptively simple. Thinking about the social importance of “Don’t Blame Anyone,” Stevenson remembers a trip he took to Estonia that resonated with him. There, he learned about the Baltic Chain, a peaceful protest in August 1989, in which people from three different Baltic States (Latvia, Estonia, and Lithuania) joined hands, forming a human chain that stretched more than 400 miles in solidarity against the political control of the Soviet Union. “I came back, and I recall thinking, ‘What do you do to defeat this sort of fear of the other, fear of foreigners, fear of people taking our jobs, taking our women, taking our — you know, whatever the hell we’re afraid of — and what do you do?’” Stevenson says. “We think, ‘Well we just need to understand other people more.’ You don’t. You don’t need to. You’ll understand them if you start by reaching out your hand and hold hands with someone that is very different. And that’s all you need.” Similarly, Sánchez-Gutiérrez recently came across a poignant article about current xenophobia in European countries, and a specific quote stood out to him: “‘In the arithmetic of societies, addition is always preferable to subtraction.’ And I think that’s actually a beautiful way to look at it. Very simply put, and it’s true.” rochestercitynewspaper.com CITY 11

If you have not heard of the great jazz organist Larry Young, it may be because he died at the age of 38 in 1978, and he has been overshadowed by other keyboard artists of his generation. But Young was a force, playing with Miles Davis on “Bitches Brew” in 1969 and joining John McLaughlin in Tony Williams Lifetime the same year. “Larry Young In Paris: The ORTF Recordings,” which includes two CDs and a 68-page booklet, should go a long way in reviving interest in Young. His soloing is especially distinctive and strong on the second of the two discs; Young was clearly an original. Although the package focuses on Young and includes interviews with McLaughlin, Dr. Lonnie Smith, John Medeski and others, many of the unreleased tracks come from groups Young played in, the Nathan Davis Quartet, and the Jazz aux Champs-Elysees All-Stars. Young plays organ on all but the final cut, on which he plays a decidedly bluesy piano. The main quartet boasts Davis on saxophone, Woody Shaw on trumpet, and drummer Billy Brooks, and the CDs are also a showcase for them. Supporting musicians include Jean-Claude Fohrenbach, sax; Sonny Grey, trumpet; Jack Dieval, piano; Jacques B. Hess, bass; Franco Manzecchi, drums; and Jacky Bamboo, conga. — BY RON NETSKY

Richie Cole “Plays Ballads & Love Songs” RCP richiecole.com

There’s a tradition among jazz saxophonists: in the midst of a career of furious soloing, slow down and release an album of ballads. John Coltrane, Sonny Rollins, and many others have set the pace; now Richie Cole has joined them with “Plays Ballads & Love Songs.” Over a five-decade career, Cole paid his dues in major big bands, and played with artists like Sonny Stitt, Freddie Hubbard, Art Pepper, and Nancy Wilson. He’s released more than 50 albums as a leader, but this is the first devoted to ballads. Cole weaves his alto gorgeously over, under, and around the melodies of classics like Richard Rodgers’ “Bewitched, Bothered and Bewildered,” Burt Bacharach’s “Alfie,” and Tommy Wolf’s “Spring Can Really Hang You Up The Most.” Cole’s quartet may not be as well-known, but bassist Mark Perna and drummer Vince Taglieri provide solid support. Guitarist Eric Susoeff wastes no time in proving he’s worthy of more attention, soloing forcefully on the first tune. He goes on to be the second star here, taking adventurous flights throughout. — BY RON NETSKY

Brian Bailey didn’t set out to be a band booking impresario; he just wasn’t entirely satisfied with his concert-going experience. As a folk music fan, Bailey felt Rochester was getting passed over by national touring acts, and what shows did make it to our dirty little city along the mighty Genesee were being booked into venues that weren’t necessarily a good fit for the artist or the fan. “I just don’t think promoters were bringing it in,” Bailey says. “Not enough from my perspective. It seemed every time I looked, I had to go to Buffalo or Ithaca or Toronto. I’ve been to the Newport Folk Festival a number of times; I just love the music they have there. And I think a lot of it doesn’t come to Rochester. It felt like we were left out of the loop.” Inspired by the Newport Folk Festival and the success of the Rochester International Jazz Festival, Bailey initially shot for the moon. ”We got a little ahead of ourselves in the beginning,” he says. ‘”If Newport can have a folk festival, why can’t we?”’ Alas, reality set in. Not one for hand-wringing or lamentations, Bailey and his like-minded friends Greg Wiktorski, Jenna Knauf, and Joe Moore founded Honest Folk to address the deficit by bringing indie-folk and singersongwriters into town and presenting them

in a pop-up setting. It was both unique and infinitely more appropriate for those who wanted to listen and actually hear what the artist Brian Bailey was saying. PHOTO BY KEVIN FULLER “Words are important,” says Bailey, who’s a college professor by day, “so are the melodies, and the violin, and the cello. And someone’s talking while you want to listen.” But according to Bailey, the quartet that formed Honest Folk weren’t really a booking agency, but rather middlemen with good taste in music. “It was more like, ‘Let’s do some pop-up shows where we front the money, bring in a band we think is really good, and eventually people will think if we’re doing this, the band must be really good,’” he says. “What we’re doing is taking artists that are too small for a big venue yet good enough that you wouldn’t want to hear them in a bar and instead see them someplace where you can focus on it and really hear it. You know how it is, you go to a bar and it’s really loud. It doesn’t work.” The beauty of the pop-up show is its non-convention. Honest Folk transforms a non-musical setting — like Restaurant Good Luck, The Arbor Loft over Hart’s Grocery Store — and elevates it into an intimate performance space capable of holding right around 180 to 300 souls. “We feel that amount of people is ideal,” Bailey says. “We’re bringing in nationally touring acts; they have guarantees. Anything below 180, it’s hard to make the math work financially.”

Honest Folk keeps the overhead low by charging $25 to $30 per ticket with 10 percent of all food sales, beer sales, and ticket sales going to the Center for Youth. And whatever waste generated by these pop-up shows is handled responsibly by Impact Earth, a local zero-waste solutions company. The beer, wine, and food is covered by the caterer, and the shows are always put on in a public space, unlike house concerts. There’s hired security in place just in case. “It’s pretty mellow,” Bailey says. “Our audience tends to drink a few beers, and sit in chairs and listen to music.” With two sold-out shows to its credit so far, Honest Folk relies on social media and word of mouth. And they target everyone; this isn’t just for the cooler-than-thou elite. There’s not a hidden, speakeasy aspect to it. “I think they are serious music lovers who come to our events,” Bailey says. “We tend to do these events on Monday nights, so to some extent, I think it’s people looking for something different to do. And we’re not going after traditional folk. We’re not going after Peter, Paul and Mary. We’re going after contemporary singersongwriters and folk artists. I think it would be cool to do some genre bending, too, like hip-hop with a folk band. We’re definitely open to genres, but right now our sweet spot is folk.” Honest Folk’s next pop-up concert is the strikingly sparse yet harmonically rich band Tow’rs from Phoenix, Arizona. Beyond that, the plan is 4 to 6 pop-up shows annually. And the word is out; according to Bailey, Honest Folk’s phone is beginning to ring. Bands want to play an Honest Folk show. They may have to wait. “We’re really picky how we curate this,” he says.

Flower City Ballet founder Wayne Blatt (pictured here as he instructs students) has willed the school to Erika Ruegemer, who is helping see RCB through its 11th season of “The Nutcracker.” PHOTO COURETESY JONATHAN QUINONES

Flower City Ballet, a 34-year-old Rochester institution, is in the middle of a leadership change. The school’s founder, Wayne Blatt — who is 75 and affectionately called Mr. B by his students and friends — is currently receiving end-of-life care at Strong Hospital’s Palliative Care Unit and has willed his school to dancer and choreographer Erika Ruegemer. As FCB prepares for its 11th annual production of “The Nutcracker,” CITY spoke with Ruegemer and Blatt (at his bedside) as he reflected upon his dancing and teaching career, and connected with former and current students and dancers who have worked with him over the years. Blatt was diagnosed with colon cancer in 2014, at which point Ruegemer and former student Hilary Ricigliano stepped up to assist with the annual “Nutcracker” performance that year. Blatt was taken off chemo this past summer, and soon after, doctors suggested that he should start looking into options for hospice care. “But his goal has been to make it through this upcoming ‘Nutcracker,’ and I think he’s still fighting for that,” Ruegemer says. “He’s a warrior.” Ruegemer, who currently functions as the school’s creative director, has been teaching and running rehearsals with the help of others during Blatt’s illness. She met Blatt about five years ago

through a mutual friend while working at Java’s Café, around the time that she founded her independent dance group, One Dance Co. Blatt identified her passion and drive, and allowed One Dance Co. to rehearse in Flower City’s Space at its Cumberland Street location. “He said to me, ‘If I can’t help anybody, what good am I?’” Ruegemer says. Beyond dance, Blatt has been an important mentor to Ruegemer over the years, which is a theme that is echoed by former and current students alike. “Wayne came into my life at a time when I really needed a leader, someone who would not only direct me, but also give me tough love,” says Rebekah von Rathonyi, who is artistic director at Central Illinois Ballet and Cornerstone Academy for Performing Arts. “I was fairly broken emotionally, and considered giving up my ballet career altogether. He took me under his wing, and became a tender loving father figure, mentor, and friend who firmly would not take no for an answer even when I wanted to give everything up.” Von Rathonyi joined Flower City Ballet as a company member and faculty member about 18 years ago, and joined the board soon after. She became assistant artistic director to help Blatt grow the school, company, and performances. “We fought many times, but in the end, he was right,” she says. “He always and still expects perfection to your best ability, mediocre work is not acceptable. He has strengthened my work ethic beyond its foundation.”

Both von Rathonyi and her husband return every year to dance in FCB’s “The Nutcracker,” as well as other productions. They both also guest teach some master classes in the school. Blatt himself began dancing in Batavia in 1958 when he took tap dancing classes with a friend. “It was just a fiasco, so I went across the street to talk to Ms. Haeusler,” he says. Lianna Haeusler, former Prima Assoulta of the National Theatre in Prague, who informed him that a career in ballet meant he would “live out of a suitcase, eat from a brown paper bag,” and wouldn’t make a lot of money. Undeterred, Blatt came under Haeusler’s tutelage and served as Premier Dansuer of the Genesee Civic Ballet for 17 years. In 1960, Blatt was recognized for his skill in Dance Magazine. “My dream was to go to New York City for 25 years and then come home and open a ballet school,” he says. But when the opportunity arose at a master class in Williamsville — Blatt was singled out and encouraged by New York City Ballet’s premier dancer, Jacques D’Amboise — Haeusler wanted to keep him local. Out of loyalty for his teacher, he remained in Western New York. “It took me 43 years to get over it,” he says. After retiring as a dancer in 1976, Blatt was working as a server at the Genesee Valley Club when two strangers, the Burrows sisters, caught him dancing in the kitchen, and invited him to attend ballet classes with them. In 1982, Blatt formed a ballet company called The School of Classical Ballet at Rochester, which became Flower City Ballet in 1990. Going forward, “I intend to keep Wayne’s vision alive while also incorporating the disciplines of modern dance,” Ruegemer says. “Like any evolving organization or business, changes will be made. For example, I would like to implement a scholarship program and invite more of the community into our growth process. I’m a collaborator and firmly believe that we need each other.” In the long term, Ruegemer says she’d like to actualize a goal she’s shared with Blatt, to develop a center to connect the dancers in Rochester, providing a hub for them to learn from a multitude of choreographers, artists, and the essential people in their field. “They’re been working very hard with her and she’s been working very hard for them,” Blatt says of Ruegemer and the students. “She’s going to be just fine.” “The Nutcracker” will be performed on Saturday and Sunday, December 17 and 18, at 2 p.m. at East High School (1801 East Main Street).

THEATER | “THE BOYS NEXT DOOR” Intellectual and developmental disabilities are no laughing matter, but in Tom Griffin’s 1986 play, “The Boys Next Door,” the subject is explored in a humorous, touching take onstage. The story follows four young men with disabilities who live in a communal home supervised by a burnt out young social worker. Throughout the course of the play, the characters undergo a life-altering two months. The show, which is presented in partnership with the Arc of Monroe County, is the second in Blackfriars Theatre’s 2016-17 season (following “Assassins”) and directed by Patricia Lewis Browne. “The Boys Next Door” continues through Sunday, November 13, at Blackfriars Theatre, 795 East Main Street. Thursday at 7:30 p.m.; Friday at 8 p.m.; Saturday at 2 p.m. and 7 p.m.; and Sunday at 2 p.m. $20-$40 (discounts available for students and seniors).

ART | “M.C. ESCHER: REALITY AND ILLUSION” Dutch artist M.C. Escher combined his supreme grasp of mathematics and a wide-open imagination to create iconic, mind-bending work, which has had a lasting impact. You can catch his influence on album art and movie sets, including the final face-off scene in Jim Henson’s 1986 film, “Labyrinth.” (Yes, I can connect anything to David Bowie.) On Sunday, November 13, Memorial Art Gallery (500 University Avenue) will open “M.C. Escher: Reality and Illusion,” an exhibit of 120 prints and drawings selected from the world’s second-largest private collection of Escher’s work. The show will feature work from his five-decade career, including early figure drawings, lesser-known book illustrations, detailed Italian landscapes, the “tessellations” that brought him lasting fame, and examples of his mind-bending, gravity-defying architectural environments. The exhibit continues through January 29, 2017. Gallery hours are Wednesday through Sunday, 11 a.m. to 5 p.m., and Thursdays 11 a.m. to 9 p.m. Admission is $5-$14 (free to members and kids age 5 and younger) except Thursday nights, when it’s half price.

Political activist, scholar, and author Angela Davis attended a segregated elementary school in Birmingham, Alabama, before embarking on an academic career that would inform her involvement in important social justice movements around the world. She has the distinction of having been called a terrorist by the likes of Nixon, being placed on the Most Wanted list by former FBI director J. Edgar Hoover, and having many songs dedicated to her by John Lennon and Yoko Ono, The Rolling Stones, and Phil Ranelin, among others. (I’m going with the opinions of the artists.) On Wednesday, November 9, MJS Productions will present “An Evening of Empowerment with Angela Davis” at East High School Auditorium (1801 East Main Street). Davis will deliver the keynote address for the event which will also honor City Councilman Adam McFadden, Rochester teen activist Zaire Downs, Monroe County Department of Planning and Development Community Liaison Hanif Abdul-Wahid, #iRocWomen founder Camille McIntyre, and American Association of University Women Greater Rochester branch president Gaynelle Wethers.

THEATER | “THERE’S ALWAYS TIME FOR A COCKTAIL”

KIDS/THEATER | “SKIPPYJON JONES: SNOW WHAT”

Celebrity housewife Mrs. Kasha Davis has been on the road virtually non-stop since her appearance on season seven of “RuPaul’s Drag Race. But she’s back in Rochester for another performance of “There’s Always Time for a Cocktail,” which was developed at the Rochester Fringe Festival and JCC CenterStage. With humor, music, heart, and party games, Davis tells her own true story of young Eddie Popil’s transformation into an international celebrity housewife.

A Siamese cat who believes he is a Mexican Chihuahua is the star of the children’s musical, “Skippyjon Jones: Snow What,” based on the New York Times bestselling book by Judy Schachner. When Skippyjon gets tired of listening to storybook fairy tales, he sets off to make his own adventures with his friends, the Chimichangos. In “Snow What,” Skippyjon Jones sets out on a journey to save the frozen princess and make a happily ever after ending in a funny twist of the fairy tale classic “Snow White and the Seven Dwarves.”

“Always Time for a Cocktail” returns to the JCC CenterStage Theatre, 1200 Edgewood Avenue, on Monday, November 14, at 7:30 p.m. $15, general admission, $10 students. 4612000; jccrochester.org. — BY KIARA ALFONSECA

offensive. A Q&A session with director Ferne Pearlstein will follow the feature. (Thursday, November 10, 6 p.m., Little 1) Tony-winning actress Alice Ripley (“Next to Normal”) stars in “Sugar!,” a lively drama about Leslie, a middle-aged piano teacher who decides to re-form the all-women rock band she once performed in with her closest friends. The decision puts her at odds with her Congressional nominee husband — who says her new hobby will be disastrous to his campaign — and her teenage daughter, who says that it’s ruining her life. The script never makes it clear exactly why singing non-threatening rock in dive bars is such a catastrophe, but I guess otherwise there wouldn’t be much of a plot. Ripley and director Shari Berman will take part in a Q&A after the film. (Friday, November 11, 7:30 p.m., Little 1) The stirring “Left on Pearl” documents how a march to honor International Women’s Day in Boston during the early 1970’s shifted course in more ways than one when a group of women ignored the planned route and turned left down Pearl Street. The detour was part of a predetermined plan on the part of a faction of marchers to occupy 888 Memorial Drive, a Harvard-owned former knitting factory they intended to take over as a women’s center. What ensued was a 10-day standoff with local authorities as the women refused to back down. The film offers a fascinating demonstration of intersectionality in action, as the women’s cause meets up with the gay rights movement, as well as the push for the university to build low-income housing to make up for the homes it had demolished in

the name of expansion. Ultimately, it offers a timely examination into the power of protest to achieve some much-needed social change. Directed by Susie Rivo. (Saturday, November 12, 5:15 p.m., Little 1) Filmmaker Erica Fae writes, directs, and stars in “To Keep the Light.” The film is about a lighthouse keeper’s wife struggling to keep appearances up as she tends to her ill husband and perform her duties in 19th century Maine. But when a stranger washes up on shore claiming to be the survivor of a shipwreck, she finds herself faced with some difficult choices. In telling her starkly beautiful tale, Fae suggests that the obstacles faced by women back in 1870 aren’t too far removed from the challenges they still endure today. (Sunday, November 13, 1 p.m., Little 1) In a lovely Quaker wedding tradition, guests are asked to sign the marriage certificate, offering their blessing on the newlywed’s nuptials. But the sweet and silly romantic comedy “Quaker Oaths” considers what happens to that same couple if they choose to seek a divorce. To end their marriage bond, exes Joe and Emily find themselves forced to head out on the road, visiting each and every one of their wedding guests to request that they cross off their signature and thus give their blessing to the couple’s amicable split. Wacky hijinks — and some unexpected connections — ensue.

Fabulous Foursquare

805 Norton Street

It isn’t often that you see a home with so much of its exterior historic fabric intact in a neighborhood that has undergone many changes. That is the case of the handsome residence at 805 Norton Street, which was built in 1922 and still retains its original clapboard and shingle siding, brick foundation, and wood porch—all in good condition. Built in the popular American Foursquare style, the house features a hipped roof with a dormer window punctuating each side—providing light in the attic space—and a wide overhanging eave. The full-width front porch is notable for its handsome pyramidal columns resting on brick pillars, concrete floor and beaded board ceiling. Off the driveway is a second side entry with a decorative, bracketed hood. The front door opens into a welcoming space that fills the eye with wonderful details on each of its three sides: on the wall to the left is a pair of stained glass windows; straight ahead is a beautiful staircase with warm wood paneling below the wood balustrade; and to the right is a handsome wood paneled entry to the living room with tapered columns framing the opening. Inside the living room are beautiful leaded glass bookcases. Original wood window trim and cove molding continue throughout these spaces. The original wood floor remains beneath the wallto-wall carpeting, loosely laid down for the owners’ young child. Light pours through two front windows and a three-window bay with a

bench seat. The dining room follows through a wide opening. Beyond are a small office space and a powder room. The kitchen has been updated with new flooring, counters, cupboards, and a glass-tiled backsplash. A large table currently serves as the family dining area. Off the back is a small southfacing sunporch—perfect for inside plants— and access to the backyard. The second floor contains four bedrooms, each with plenty of closet space, as well as a small sunporch off a back bedroom. The full bath retains its original tiled floor and walls. A huge three-car garage with a side work room is at the end of a wide, paved driveway. Surrounded by well-maintained early 20th century houses, the house is located just west of Hudson Avenue, within sight of the orange tower of the beautiful St. Stanislaus Kostka Roman Catholic Church and the Integrated Arts and Technology High School, housed in the 1928 Franklin High School building. The active Group 14621 Community Association assists residents in improving their neighborhoods through a variety of events and programs. With 1,890 square feet of living space, this fine residence is offered at only $59,900.

You should be extremely careful about any such promises and any suggestions that you pay them a fee or sign over your deed.

Fun [ NEWS OF THE WEIRD ] BY CHUCK SHEPHERD

Can’t Possibly Be True

Kids as young as 6 who live on a cliff top in China’s Atule’er village in Sichuan province will no longer have to use flexible vine-based ladders to climb down and up the 2,600foot descent from their homes to school. Beijing News disclosed in October, in a report carried by CNN, that a sturdy steel ladder was being built to aid the 400 villagers after breathtaking photographs of them making the treacherous commute surfaced on the Internet earlier this year [http://cnn. it/2f2PCon] [CNN, 10-26-2016].

Round Up The Usual Suspects (“Youth Pastors”)

Sentenced to six years in prison for sex with teenage girls (September): former Youth Pastor David Hayman, 38 (Hackensack, New Jersey). Sentenced to six months in jail for sending inappropriate texts to teenage boys (August): former Youth Pastor Brian Burchfield (Shawnee, Oklahoma). Charged and awaiting trial for impregnating a 15-year-old girl (October): Youth Pastor Wesley Blackburn, 35 (New Paris, Pennsylvania). Sentenced to 10 years in prison for sexual abuse of a 16-year-old girl (September): former Youth Pastor Brian Mitchell, 31 (North Olmsted, Ohio). Charged and awaiting trial for luring teenagers into prostitution (October): Youth Pastor Ron Cooper, 52 (Miami). Sentenced to 90 days in jail as part of a sex assault case involving a 13-year-old girl (September): former Youth Pastor Christopher Hutchinson, 37 (Parker, Colorado).

An “Ant” Version of Hell

Researchers in Poland reported in August the “survival” of a colony of ants that wandered unsuspectingly into an old nuclear

weapon bunker and became trapped. When researchers first noticed in 2013, they assumed the ants would soon die, either freezing or starving to death, but, returning in 2015 and 2016, they found the population stable. Their only guess: New ants were falling into the bunker, “replacing” the dead ones. Thus, ants condemned to the bunker slowly starve, freezing, in total darkness, until newly condemned ants arrive and freeze and starve in total darkness — and on and on.

Judicial Activism

Jackson County, Michigan, judge John McBain briefly gained notoriety in October when a Michigan news site released courtroom video of a December 2015 hearing in which McBain felt the need to throw off his robe, leap from the bench and tackle defendant Jacob Larson, who was resisting the one court officer on hand to restrain him. Yelling “Tase his ass right now,” McBain is shown holding on until help arrived — with Larson perhaps undermining his earlier courtroom statements claiming it was his girlfriend, and not he, who was the aggressor in alleged stalking incidents.

Names in Florida News

Arrested in October and charged with kidnapping a 4-year-old girl in Lakeland: a truck driver, Mr. Wild West Hogs. Arrested in West Palm Beach in August and charged with trespassing at a Publix supermarket (and screaming at employees), Mr. Vladimir Putin. And in August, at the dedication of a new unit at Tampa General Hospital’s pediatric center, longtime satisfied patients attended, including Maria Luva, who told guests her son, now 8 years old, was born there: Ywlyox Luva.

[ LAST WEEK’S SOLUTION ON PAGE 28 ]

[ LOVESCOPE ] BY EUGENIA LAST ARIES (March 21-April 19): Positive changes can occur when it comes to affairs of the heart. Serious plans will lead to personal good fortune. Overdoing simple arrangements will keep your relationship from moving forward smoothly. Spend more time and money on comfort and joy, not pleasing outsiders. TAURUS (April 20-May 20): Someone you have worked with or grew up with will have an impact on you. Attending a reunion or conference that is geared toward people who share your skills and intellect will open up new romantic possibilities. Don’t act too fast. Get all the facts before you initiate intimacy.

GEMINI (May 21-June 20): Relationships will be difficult. One person or the other will not feel the same way. It’s important not to press for the impossible or expect too much from each other. Honesty will be required if you want to avoid making a mistake that will be costly or hard to resolve. CANCER (June 21-July 22): Let your voice lead the way when it comes to personal relationships. Romance, talk of plans and building a future with someone you love should be your focus. Don’t feel the need to stick to tradition if a unique or unexpected opportunity to bring you closer together should arise.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): You’ll crave a little excitement and change in your social life. An adventure with someone who balances you, makes you think and who is willing to try new things will lead to serious talks about the way you want to move forward. Get ready to put new personal plans into motion. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): Proceed with caution when dealing with affairs of the heart. Someone you meet will portray only what he or she wants you to know and see. Be aware that underlying traits may not live up to your standards. Take your time, and be sure before you decide to give your heart away.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): Get moving, get physical and take part in activities you enjoy. Mingling with people who can offer you a broader spectrum of what life has to offer will make you reconsider what you have been willing to settle for with regards to your past personal relationships. SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): What might appear to be your good fortune in terms of a connection you have with someone will turn into disappointment if you allow your physical passion to take over. Question motives and ask questions that will put your mind at ease before you engage in an intimate encounter.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): You’ll have trouble sticking to one person or staying with anyone who becomes stayed or boring. Don’t waste your time trying to be something or someone you are not. Set your standards high, and make plans to spend time with someone as outgoing and engaging as you. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): You may be in dire need of change, but before you look for something or someone who intrigues you, consider what you already have and what makes the most sense long term. The wrong choice or move will have lasting effects that will become difficult to overcome.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): Satisfy your curiosity by reuniting with someone from your past. Whether or not it turns out to be better timing and you connect seamlessly, it will give you the fortitude, desire and courage to move forward when it comes to love, romance and your personal life. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): Use your brain when faced with emotional matters. Don’t fall into a never-ending cycle with someone who continually makes idle promises. Step outside your comfort zone, and strive to let go of the past and connect with someone who truly understands you and who wants to achieve similar life goals.
