Celebrating Independence Days

P

M E N

erhaps “United” is no longer the operative word, as the good people of the United Kingdom voted 52% to 48% on June 23, to extricate themselves from the bureaucratic morass known as the European Union (EU). Backers of “Brexit” called it “Independence Day.” Eight hundred and one years ago (June 15, 1215), a group of fed-up barons met with King John at Runnymede and signed the Magna Carta, lessening the power of the king and instituting personal liberties among his subjects, as years of over-taxation and feckless rule had led to ruin for many in the aristocracy. Some 561 years later (1776), another group of landed gentry declared independence from yet another English king (George III) for many of the same reasons and drafted the Declaration of Independence. Readers are invited to join us in celebration of that momentous event Monday morning, July 4 (see page 12 for all the details). I’ll be in the back of Dana Newquist’s vintage fire truck. Coincidentally, U.S. presidential candidate Donald Trump was in Scotland to christen the redo of his golf course at Turnberry as the “Brexit” votes were tabulated. While others slept, Mr. Trump answered questions about what the vote may mean for the U.S. and the United Kingdom. He described the surprising vote as “a beautiful, beautiful thing.” He then pointed out what a mistake it had been for president Barack Obama, during a joint press conference with prime minister David Cameron in April, to have opined that by voting to exit the EU the British people would be placed “at the end of the queue” when it came to renegotiate various treaties with the U.S. In a too-sweet moment, Mr. Trump gleefully noted that should he win the presidency, the Brits had nothing to fear: “The U.K.” he said, “would always be at the front of the line” in a Trump administration. Mr. Trump went on to suggest that former London mayor Boris Johnson (who, coincidentally, was born in New York City) “would make a good prime minister.” Mr. Johnson, a controversial figure and longtime Eurosceptic, had famously said prior to these unfolding events that his chances of becoming prime minister “are about as good as the chances of finding Elvis on Mars, or my being reincarnated as an olive.” Happy Independence Day! •MJ

greatness has always depended on contributions from people who were born elsewhere but sought out this country and made it their home...” Is that it? Is it wrong to civilly express oneself at a venue where you are the invited speaker? I wonder if Mr. McCalmont respects the good faith of anyone holding a viewpoint different than his own. Dave Willett Goleta (Editor’s note: While I did not go to the website to read any of Ms Obama’s commencement address, there is little doubt in my mind at least that she went on to disparage Mr. Trump. Most of us have no problem with that. Mr. McCalmont is simply adding her speech in a litany of Democrat assaults on free speech that take place regularly across the political spectrum. – J.B.)

uick pic of my oldest, Grace, reading the MJ in our palace digs. We are staying in the Palazzo Antellesi overlooking the Piazza Santa Croce [in Italy]. The piazza is set up for the Calcio Storico Fiorentino games, which have been very exciting to watch from our prime vantage point! The final match [is] on June 24, the Blue against the White, and should be very bloody if it’s anything like the semi-finals. Hope all is well at home. Heard there is a fire. Ciao. Jerrad Burford Montecito (Editor’s note: There was a fire, well north of Montecito, near Hollister Ranch, but County Fire departments made short order of it. Thank you for thinking of us during your extended sojourn. Hope you bet on the correct team. – J.B.)

Bending Down and Picking Up

We learn from early childhood how important it is to exercise. However, in reality we must work hard every day “paying the bills” first. Our wonderful Montecito, between the coastal range and the Pacific waves does need each of us to keep it “spic ‘n’ span” daily. Litter happens. The worst are cigarette ends and boxes. Next are candy bar wrappings, and third are paper cups and napkins, et cetera. There are several local citizens who

walk and know the real importance of no litter and do “pick up.” This is excellent healthwise and economically, since we depend realistically on tourism and keeping Santa BarbaraMontecito an all-year resort city. G. Hebert Montecito

Etiquette, Shmetiquette

In his letter (“Time to Gird Loins,” MJ #22/23) David S. McCalmont decries the lack of civil etiquette this election: from Democrats. I sympathize, except I don’t see it so one-sided. His first example of a Republicantrashing Democrat was the First Lady who bad-mouthed Republicans, specifically Donald Trump, and didn’t respect the good faith of people who oppose her politically during a commencement address she gave in New York. I found a transcript of her speech (www.whitehouse.gov/thepress-office/2016/06/03/remarksfirst-lady-city-college-new-yorkcommencement) and read through it a few times looking for disrespectful comments, uncivil discourse, and any trash talk. Then I did a search for “Trump,” “Republican,” and “GOP” to make sure I hadn’t missed anything. There were no hits. What was so offensive? There is one line in her speech where she expresses a view about America: “We don’t build up walls to keep people out, because we know that our

When I spotted the scrawled lines (on Sheffield Drive about 200 yards down from East Valley Road), I thought “gang-related graffiti.” But on closer inspection, it appears to be a protest over DAS (Distributed Antenna System) on poles. I concluded this from “NO TV” being featured in the graffiti. So we have disfiguring poles to protest disfiguring poles? In any case, I would hope the Montecito Association (MA) could take care of the graffiti. Gary Gulbransen Montecito (Editor’s note: MA executive director Victoria Greene responded thusly to Mr. Gulbransen’s letter: “Thank you for sharing this. As confirmed by the County, the paint in the photos is related to identification of underground utilities. SCE has

No gang graffiti here, folks – move along, nothing to see, just various color-coded Southern California Edison markings on designated-for-destruction utility poles along Sheffield Drive

been doing a lot of power pole replacement in Montecito and this pole is likely on their list.” John Margadonna of SB County Public Works concurs: “Those are definitely USA (Underground Services Alert) markings and not Graffiti,” he writes. “I would say that the Pole is going to be replaced, but I haven’t received a Permit Application yet.” John says he will contact So Cal Edison “and try to find out if there is a schedule for replacement of this pole and pass the info along to you when I get it.” – J.B.) •MJ

Music Academy of the West by Steven Libowitz

Thibaudet’s Rhapsody at Granada? Oui, Merci!

J

ean-Yves Thibaudet is no stranger to Santa Barbara, as the French pianist who now lives in Los Angeles has performed frequently in town, most recently just in late May when he was the soloist for Edvard Grieg’s Concerto in A Minor during the Los Angeles Philharmonic’s annual CAMA concert. He’s not even new to Montecito, as he made his debut at the Music Academy of the West (MAW) a couple of years ago, though his solo recital got scuttled due to an emergency. Thibaudet is back in Santa Barbara for a one-week residency at MAW as part of the astonishing lineup of visiting pianists this summer. He coached the masterclass on Monday, June 27, at 1 pm in Hahn Hall, then was scheduled to return to the Granada to perform Gershwin’s Rhapsody in Blue as the centerpiece of the Academy Festival Orchestra’s pair of concerts over the July 4 weekend, when the jazz-inflected masterpiece will be flanked by John Adams’s thrilling Short Ride in a Fast Machine and Dvorak’s lush, evocative Symphony No. 9 “From the New World” in a decidedly American program (7:30 pm Saturday and 2:30 pm Sunday). “I’ve performed quite a bit in Santa Barbara, and I do feel like it has a special place in my heart,” Thibaudet said over the phone from his home recently. “It’s a very special little town, so beautiful. I’m always happy when I’m there, it’s like having a little vacation. Just to drive there is enjoyable. It’s so relaxing when you see the ocean for those last 10 miles.” He also spoke about teaching, playing, and Gershwin during a 45-minute conversation.

Q. Let’s start off with the master class. How do you teach students you’ve just met and without imposing your style? A. I love masterclasses, and teaching in general, but I don’t get to do it all that often. Lately, I’m doing much more as an artist in residence at Coburn in L.A., where I get to follow the students and have projects together with them. So it’s become a much more important part of my life. I was blessed with great teachers all my life, and I want to share all the wonderful gifts I’ve been given and my experiences from my life with the next generation. My teacher in Paris knew Ravel, she spoke to me as if he was in the room. I felt like I met the 30 June – 7 July 2016

guy. Those kinds of connections are like treasures. You want to make sure to pass them on. So it’s almost like a mission to me now. And I learn so much when I teach. It’s very enriching for me. As for the teaching, if you are a concert pianist, you can just tell them what to do. I show them a lot. But that’s not the point. The role of the teacher is to help the student find his own personality and voice and develop that identity. To be there to support him and help him, not to have him do what you’re doing. Where do you come down in focusing on the student versus entertaining the audience? It can be difficult to find the right balance because the students need all your attention and time, but you don’t want to ignore the audience. On the other hand, I don’t want to make it a show because it’s not for the public. The student has to come out with having something accomplished. So I try to make sure audience can hear but not directly address them very often. You are perhaps even more familiar with Gershwin than the typical concert pianist, having recorded big jazz band orchestrations of Rhapsody in Blue, variations on I Got Rhythm, and Concerto in F with the Baltimore Symphony a few years ago. Why are you so drawn to his music? I had an early connection with Gershwin. I remember learning both concerto and Rhapsody when I was 14 in Marseille with a big local orchestra. In those days, I didn’t know anything about jazz. We had lots of classical musical in my family, but I’d not heard one note of jazz, not until a few years later on the radio. So back then, I learned it as music from just another composer who had concertos. I wish I had a recording of that piece, because I have a feeling that I played it so completely straight – with no jazz feeling at all. I had all the notes, but none of the feeling. After that, I started to learn about jazz, which has changed my life. Now I know that you cannot perform Gershwin if you don’t know about jazz. It’s like speaking a language phonetically. You are just saying the words but have no clue what they mean. Gershwin is one of the composers who was beyond every struc-

t’s that time of year: Montecito’s most popular community event, the Village Fourth, is Monday, July 4, and plans are well underway to accommodate thousands of residents who will take part in the breakfast, parade, and barbecue. “I’m thrilled to be helping with the plans,” said Mindy Denson, who has been enlisted by the Montecito Association (MA) to chair the committee planning the event. The 21st annual affair begins at 7:30 am with the Montecito Fire Protection District’s (MFPD) pancake breakfast at Fire Station #1 on San Ysidro Road. For $8, attendees can enjoy pancakes, eggs, sausage, and Green Star coffee, served by Montecito’s finest firefighters. Proceeds from the breakfast, which ends around 10:30 am, benefit the Montecito Firefighters’ Benevolent Fund, according to communications coordinator Jackie Jenkins. There is no parking available on site, however a drop-off location will be available at the base of the Fire District’s driveway. Around 11:30 am, a patriotic parade of walkers, floats, fire engines, and antique cars will make its way down San Ysidro Road to Santa Rosa Lane, ending at Lower Manning Park. Attendees are encouraged to don their red, white, and blue, and wave American flags, which are distributed by Montecito Association board members. As always, the parade will be led by Montecito school kids. This year the parade is being organized by Conner Rehage, a member of Montecito Rotary Club. Rehage is enthusiastically taking over the reins from Dana Newquist, who has overseen the parade since the 1990s. “It will be difficult for me not organizing, and I’m also happy someone else will be taking ‘my’ job,” Newquist said.

• The Voice of the Village •



Instead, Newquist is being honored as grand marshal, a nod to his hard work over the last two decades, and his patriotism and enthusiasm each year. Following the short parade route, everyone will gather for an old-fashioned barbecue at lower Manning Park, complete with hot dogs, hamburgers, chips, and soda, and beer and wine for adults. Denson tells us the event will be especially family-friendly this year, with more games and an inflatable slide for the little ones. School-aged kids will take part in the famous Montecito Cup games – including a pie-eating contest, tug of war, and sack races. Cold Spring School was the winner of the Cup last year. The usual activities for the younger kids will take place: face painting, bounce houses, and a fishing booth. As usual, it takes a village to pull off the event, and a committee including Bill Davis, Cliff Ghersen, Christy Venable, Chris Denson, Monica Babich, Trish Davis, and Kathi King has been hard at work organizing the special day. In addition to the Montecito Association, participating organizations include MERRAG (Montecito Emergency Response & Recovery Action Group), Montecito Boy Scouts, Friendship Center volunteers, and others. The $20,000 event is sponsored in part by the MA and is paid for by donation. To donate, you can send a check to Montecito Community Foundation, PO Box 5278, Santa Barbara, CA 93150 or drop it off at the Montecito Association office at Community Hall. Newly designed Village Fourth T-shirts are for sale at Vons on Coast Village Road and also in the Upper Village. “We hope to see you there!” Denson

ome of you may remember Lois Lane, Superman’s journalist girlfriend, from days gone by. The Association for Women in Communications (AWC) – Santa Barbara Chapter filled the El Paseo Restaurant to honor two other Loises – Congresswoman Lois Capps and communications consultant Dr. Lois Phillips. The 2016 theme was “Women Stand Up, Speak Out”, which surely fits the recipients who both got their public voice later in life. Lois Capps has been a Congresswoman since 1998, succeeding her late husband, Walter Capps. She had been a school nurse and helped spearhead legislation to address the national nursing shortage, detect and prevent domestic violence against women, curb underage drinking, and more. Dr. Lois Phillips has been in a myriad of communications arenas such as conference speaking, producing and hosting two TV programs about women’s changing rolls, co-hosting an NPR radio show on KCLU about current issues and coaching leaders in their

earlier this year. The former Peabody’s is located at 1198 Coast Village Road.

Scaffolding at the former home of Peabody’s is a promising sign of progress, despite more permitting delays at the City level

Scaffolding on the remodeled building that was once home to Peabody’s was removed last week, a sign that progress – however slow – is occurring, but restaurant reps tell us hopes to have the restaurant opened this summer have been dashed after continuous issues with City permitting. “We are one final permit away, which we hope to have in the coming weeks,” an attorney for the project tells us. The permit pertains to the sidewalk in front of the restaurant on Middle Road, and disagreement between the Public Works Department and the Creeks Department on what type of material should be used on the sidewalk has delayed the process, according to restaurant owner Craig McCaw’s reps. There is no timeline for completion of the restaurant, which has been closed since 2012. The driveway onto Coast Village Road still needs to be completed, as does the interior design and building. “We’re at least a few months away, but it’s within sight,” says property owner Danny Copus. The building, as well as the neighboring hotel, is owned by the Copus family, which also owns Montecito Inn. McCaw has leased the building to open a new restaurant, which will be managed and operated by Matthew Kenney Cuisine, which promises a mostly vegan menu focusing on local produce and products. There will be a select array of poultry and fish dishes, we’re told, though the exact menu has yet to be decided. Also yet to be decided: the eatery’s name, which was once slated to be Oliver’s, after McCaw’s middle name. The extensively remodeled restaurant will be roughly 2,250 sq. ft., and will provide seating for 50 patrons inside and 48 outside on the patio. The project includes extensive renovations and upgrades, including a covered patio, an expanded kitchen, and upgraded interior, as well as exterior upgrades such as a new accessible path, wheelchair lift, revised parking layout, and the addition of several trees, which will help replace two trees that were removed from the site

Crews lay down sod on the Montecito Country Club golf course, rather than seeding and grass springs, in an effort to further reduce water consumption

Turfgrass installation on the newly renovated Jack Nicklaus Signature Golf Course at Montecito Country Club (MCC) has started, with sod being installed instead of what was originally planned: seeding and grass springs. In a statement earlier this week, MCC reps, on behalf of owner Ty Warner, say the course renovation project enhances the surrounding environment and minimizes the use of Santa Barbara’s local water resources. During the approval process, MCC reps worked with golf course designer Jack Nicklaus, agronomists, engineers, environmental consultants, and the City of Santa Barbara to continue water-saving efficiency by installing a new state-of- the-art irrigation system that allows precise control of every individual sprinkler from a sophisticated computer system that is connected to a local weather station to match precipitation rates and monitor irrigation practices. “From the beginning, our goal has been to significantly improve the Club’s efforts to conserve water and help the environment,” said Ty Warner Hotels and Resorts project development manager Bill Medel. “This project is an example of Mr. Warner and his team collaborating with the City to come up with beneficial solutions for the community using advanced technology and strategic planning to reduce water consumption dramatically on this property.” By voluntarily reducing the total irrigated turf acreage from about 95 acres to 60 acres and sand-capping the entire golf course, the Club is better equipped to manage drainage and provide consistent moisture management across the entire course, which greatly improves water-use efficiency. On track to open in 2017, the course includes a drought-tolerant variety of warm season turfgrass, which uses 40 percent less water than a common cool season turfgrass found on most golf courses. While the installation 30 June – 7 July 2016

of the new turfgrass is taking place, watering during the day is necessary to keep moisture in the new sod until it is established and rooted, otherwise it will decline. The Club also dedicated 45 acres to predominantly drought tolerant native grasslands and plants such as Toyon, Buckwheat, and Salvia. All potable landscape irrigation around the clubhouse has been eliminated and replaced by drip irrigation using recycled water. Subsurface Soil Monitoring sensors have been installed to measure soil moisture levels and improve and assist in water management decisions. Upon reopening, MCC will continue to irrigate the new golf course with recycled water from the City of Santa Barbara. For more information, visit www. montecitocc.com.

he sky darkened. Rain splattered. “Everyone into the vans!” Road Scholars group leader Stewart approached our van and handed fellow guide Joanna a walkie-talkie. “We need to stay in touch in case it gets bad.” Joanna handed me the walkie-talkie. “I’m going to need to concentrate on the road.” The “road” was 33 miles long, deeply rutted, and barely wider in many places than the van. Plus, it was made of clay, which became quite slick when wet. “Roger that, Joanna,” I said. I threw my shoulders back, my chin outward, and did a couple of neck rolls. My wife looked at me with pride and said: “Please don’t drop the thing. It looks expensive.” “Roger that, Dear,” I said. It was the last official day of our program: Pueblo Heritage: The Anasazi, Hopi, Navajo, and Chaco Canyon. We had spent the last few hours at Chaco Culture National Historic Park in Northwestern New Mexico, walking around ruins’ built-in stages from the mid-800s to the early 1100s, when the Chacoans seemed to just disappear. “Aliens,” I had whispered to my wife, Pat. “You always think it’s aliens,” she whispered back. “Just because people sometimes call you a space cadet does not prove aliens exist.” The sky rumbled – a response indicating I was right? I mean, some of the feats accomplished by the Chacoans seem almost impossible. For instance, to build the enormous great houses (the structures built at Chaco, were the largest structures in the world until the 19th century), they cut down some 200,000 conifer trees from the Chuska Mountains, located 50-70 miles away. More than 600,000 pieces of timber in all were hauled by hand. “Welcome back, fellow Chacoans. Drop the logs here. Now, go get some more.” Those not hauling lumber were quarrying thousands of sandstone blocks to build dozens of great houses, including 500-room, three-story Chetro Ketl and 800-room, four-story Pueblo Bonito. “Welcome back, fellow Chacoans. Drop the blocks here. Now, go get some more.” Another amazing thing about Chaco Canyon is that many of the structures were precisely oriented to solar and 30 June – 7 July 2016

lunar movements. In 1977, a “dagger of light” was found on nearby Fajada Butte. The knife-shaped light pierced a spiral petroglyph exactly on the summer solstice. Another dagger pierced a second spiral with a shadow just as the moon rose. Other petroglyphs marked solar solstices and equinoxes exactly at solar noon. “Aliens,” I whispered to Pat again. She pointed at her headset as if she couldn’t hear me. The roads that connected Chaco Canyon with other sites of great house were also built with great precision. The road to the north, which runs for miles, varies in straightness less than one degree. Chaco was a trading hub. They made jewelry and other items out of turquoise and traded with Mexico for needed items, as well as parrots and macaws. They held ceremonies that attracted pilgrims, who stayed in these early “Hiltons.” Plus, they likely provided food for other communities during periods of drought. “The Chacoans most likely left during a change in climate or prolonged drought,” said Stewart, “migrating to new areas and intermingling with other ancient peoples.” “See,” said Pat, “no aliens needed.” Riiigghhht. We were standing around the remains of the Great Kiva of Chetro Ketl when there were several more rumbles, and some raindrops began to fall. A thousand years ago, we would have climbed inside the multi-chambered underground ceremonial kiva, ridden out the storm, then walked back to the Chuska Mountains for more logs. But today, we had to make sure we got out of the canyon before the road became impassable, so we hurried along the Petroglyph Trail to grab a couple quick photos of the enormous Pueblo Bonito before we piled into the vans and headed off, following Stewart to the safety of pavement. The walkie-talkie came on. “All vans please check in.” “Joanna’s van, check,” I said. “All vans?” “Roger, check, over and out,” I said. “You have to hold the button for the entire message.” “Check, check, roger that.” There was a pause. “Is that Ernie?” “Roger, roger, check, check, check.” I thought I heard a sigh, then silence. “I flunked walkie-talkie,” I said. “Don’t worry,” Pat said. “The mother ship will be coming for you soon.” •MJ

MUSIC ACADEMY (Continued from page 9) ture and category. You can’t put him in a little box. Jazz was his idiom. But he also understood classical structure, concertos, operas. He was a real genius. That’s why I have always kept his music in my repertoire for more than 40 years now. Rhapsody is great because everybody knows the tune – it’s been in movies and commercials. It makes them smile and feel happy. And I can feel that on the stage when I’m playing it. It always puts you in a good mood. When I spoke with (concert conductor) Larry Rachleff, he said he was looking forward to hearing what French touches you would put in the piece. It’s just part of me as a person. All those inspirations – the teachers, the experiences, the things from my country – are like a recipe, but it becomes your own unique creation. So, of course there is a French element, but it’s also there in the music, because Gershwin had that too, an incredible admiration for Ravel and that era. The connection is already there. I just do my own mixture, which I can’t explain but I sure love it. What are you looking forward to this summer? Only July 14, Bastille Day, which is our 4th of July in France, I’m playing in a special concert in front of the Eiffel Tower with half a million people there. There will be lots of pop stars, singers, all kinds of music, and they asked me to play. So I’m flying back just to do that. It will be very touching. And I’m doing the soundtrack for a new movie, Wakefield, by E.L. Doctorow (starring Bryan Cranston and Jennifer Garner). I’m playing all the piano solos. It’s beautiful music. I love doing that (movie) work. It’s very exciting and different. You have to follow what’s going on. You’re not in charge anymore. It’s the actors and the story, and you have to help the music to create that feeling. I find that very fascinating. I don’t understand why people see (Hollywood music) as diminished. I learn from it, and I get to play all that beautiful music. And at the end of the day it attracts a larger, wider audience to classical music, which is important.

This Week @ the Music Academy by Steven Libowitz Thursday, June 30 – Rotating faculty have become a way of life around the MAW summer festival, either via visiting/Mosher guest artists or simply an abundance of faculty. Take viola, for example. This year, the Fellows get have already enjoyed the wisdom of USC Thornton School 30 June – 7 July 2016

viola prof and director of chamber music Karen Dreyfus (Orpheus Chamber Orchestra & New York Philharmonic; Lyric Piano Quartet & the Amerigo Trio; formerly Juilliard & Manhattan School of Music) during week 1, and MAW Distinguished Alumni Award winner (‘79 & ‘83) and N.Y. Phil principal Cynthia Phelps, for whom Julia Adolphe has composed a new viola concerto, in Week 2 (also in Week 8). Starting next week, they’ll study with International Emmy Award winner, two-time Grammy nominee, and Avery Fisher Career Grant recipient Richard Yongjae O’Neill, a 1998-99 alumnus who is quite familiar with Hahn Hall as he serves as the principal of Camerata Pacifica. But this week, it’s a look back at the violist who held the seat in Camerata when it started 21 years ago, first started teaching at MAW back in ‘82, and matriculated at the summer festival for the final time 60 years ago! That would be Donald McInnes, who retired from performing years ago but still teaches regularly (3:15 pm; Lehmann Hall; 
$13). Friday, July 1 – Warren Jones is the other link to Camerata Pacifica, where he serves as the principal pianist, performing all sorts of challenging chamber music when he’s not back east as a faculty member at Manhattan School. During the summer, however, Jones hunkers down at Miraflores, where he heads the vocal piano department, working closely with the Fellows who accompany the singers in recital, competition, and special events. His remarkable versatility is matched only by his skill as a pedagogue capable of reaching far and wide for stories or memorable metaphors to bring out the history and emotion of a song. Today’s masterclass is one of only two chances to catch him in public this season (3:15 pm; Hahn; $20). Sat.-Sun., July 2-3 – Jean-Yves Thibaudet (see interview in MAW 2016) is the soloist for Gershwin’s Rhapsody in Blue as the centerpiece of the Academy Festival Orchestra’s (AFO) pair of concerts at the Granada this weekend. The jazz-inflected masterpiece is flanked by John Adams’s thrilling Short Ride in a Fast Machine and Dvorak’s lush, evocative Symphony No. 9 “From the New World” in a decidedly American program. And yeah, that’s right, I said pair: to accommodate the expanding community interest in MAW’s symphonic concert spurred by last year’s appearance of the New York Philharmonic at the Santa Barbara Bowl, the AFO is doing the show twice – 7:30 tonight and 2:30 pm tomorrow, much like

the Santa Barbara Symphony performs their monthly concerts. But the vast majority of tickets here are just $10 as part of the MAW new initiative. What an inviting lead-in for Independence Day! Monday, July 4 – Pianist Jerome Lowenthal, by far the longest-tenured MAW faculty member (he joined in 1970), has cut back on his schedule at the summer festival in deference to the riches of visiting artists, what with Thibaudet, Jeremy Denk, Leon Fleisher, and Julian Martin each taking a week or more. He’ll only be around for two weeks in 2016, starting with today’s masterclass. That means there are only two dates to catch this masterful, marvelously knowledgeable teacher who imparts his lessons with gentle fervor, and lets the audience in with a twinkle in his eye. The beach is always too crowded on Independence Day anyway (1 pm; Hahn; $15). Tuesday, July 5 – One-time visiting artist Jorja Fleezanis, who served as concertmaster of the Minnesota Orchestra from 1989 to 2009, is now a full-time MAW faculty member. But while the versatile violin soloist and educator (John Adams wrote his violin concerto for her) will be in residence for all eight weeks, she’s leading the violin masterclass just one time, as much of her duties cover working with the orchestra strings and string chamber groups (3:15 pm; Lehmann; $13)... Husband and wife Glenn Dicterow (violin) and Karen Dreyfus (viola) play the world premiere of Paul Chihara’s Duo Lyrico, which was composed for them upon Dicterow’s recent retirement as concertmaster of the New York Philharmonic. In addition to having had his pieces premiered by the Boston Symphony, London Symphony, the Los Angeles Philharmonic, Cleveland, and Orpheus Chamber orchestras, Chihara has composed scores for more than 90 movies and TV series, including Prince of the City, Crossing

America is a tune. It must be sung together. – Gerald Stanley Lee

Delancey, China Beach, and 100 Centre Street. According to the program notes: Chihara built the piece on the hymn-like song Bist Du Bei Mir, from J.S. Bach’s AnnaMagdelana Buch, and the second theme in Schubert’s immortal String Quintet in C. A clever seasonal pairing rounds out the first half of the Faculty Artist Series program: Adam Schoenberg’s 2002 Winter Music and Barber’s Summer Music, both with Timothy Day, flute; Cynthia Koledo DeAlmeida, oboe; Richie Hawley, clarinet; Dennis Michel, bassoon; and Julie Landsman, horn. The concert closes with Schubert’s late, masterful Piano Trio in B-flat Major, D. 898, with pianist Jones, violinist Kathleen Winkler, and cellist Alan Stepansky (7:30 pm; Lobero; $40). Wednesday, July 6 – Cellist Lyn Harrell – who received the very first Avery Fisher Award – has enjoyed a half-century career that has brought him to many leading orchestras including Boston, Chicago, New York, Philadelphia, San Francisco, Los Angeles and others, and he has worked with legendary conductors such as James Levine, Sir Neville Marriner, Kurt Masur, Zubin Mehta, André Previn, Sir Simon Rattle, and Leonard Slatkin. He’s also a consummate soloist, chamber musician, recitalist and conductor, not to mention a fantastic teacher. It’s in that latter role we’ll get our first look at the Mosher guest artist when he leads the masterclass (1 pm; Lehmann; $13) before performing in recital tomorrow with pianist Victor Asuncion at Hahn, director of collaborative art studies at University of Memphis. The program features works by Mendelssohn, Verdi, Ravel, Faure, Schubert, and Debussy (7:30 pm; $55). (For more information and tickets, call 969-8787 or visit www.musicacademy. org.

In 2007, Dr. Phillips, publisher Mindy Bingham and producer Deborah Hutchison founded the local chapter of the AWC, which is headquartered in Springfield, Missouri. Santa Barbara is now the second-largest growing chapter in the United States. After networking, which this group does well since its mission statement is promoting leadership, recognizing excellence, and keeping everyone up to date in their field, it was time for a gigantic and delicious lunch. AWC president Minette Riordan welcomed the group. Then our elected officials read proclamations to both ladies – mayor Helene Schneider, state Senator Hannah Beth-Jackson, supervisor Janet Wolf, and assemblyman Das Williams’s rep. As the mayor commented, “If only these walls could talk. This historical building has had many women making decisions inside it.” It has become a tradition for poet laureate Perie Longo to write a poem every year for the honorees. She read them and presented a framed copy to each. A treasure indeed! Susan Rose introduced Lois. As Lois Phillips said, “I am speechless and that’s rare.” She thanked all her friends who came from out of town for her occasion, saying, “You are truly my wind beneath my wings.” She reminded us that the

“greatest fear is public speaking. Most people would rather be in the casket than delivering the eulogy.” She quoted Maya Angelou, who said, “I’ve learned that people will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel.” Sharon Siegel introduced Lois Capps and she joked, “When you’re ready to retire, the people that have been throwing rotten eggs suddenly have nice things to say. On my last day in office, I’m going to read Perie’s piece to Congress.” It was all about how to get along. She remembered that her congressional career started 18 years ago, right here in El Paseo Restaurant. And then I won six bottles of wine in the raffle with my one ticket!

The Riel World A young man who grew up in relative poverty in Bakersfield before moving to our rarefied enclave at the age of nine when his mother, known as Queen Barb, remarried and lived in a colonial-style house en-route to Butterfly Beach, has big aspirations. Now that youngster, Chris Riel and his production company, the aptly named Olive Mill Productions, is making a documentary named The Big White House and has launched a Kickstarter campaign to raise the necessary funding. “The house became a sanctuary for a lot of troubled kids in town,” says Chris. “We had an open-door policy and it was filled with youngsters from all different backgrounds, who needed support and a place to be free. An Animal House for teens, if you like. “From musicians, athletes, artists, actors to dare devils, homeless or suffering teens, they found solace in a place of acceptance.” Ninety percent of the kids came from broken homes. Some were wealthy, others were middle class, but all found an opportunity for unconditional love, friendship, and a good time. “Like the story of Peter Pan, the Big White House became Neverland

a St. Germain signature cocktail and munching on tidbits from Three Girls Catering. There were wines poured by Zaca Mesa, accompanied by the folk/ flamenco guitar of Chris Fossek. His mom was one of the featured artists. There were docents on hand to answer questions and show the house. Those 16 artists were: Meredith Brooks Abbott, Peter Adams, Nancy Davidson, Camille Dellar, Pamela Hill Enticknap, Priscilla Fossek, Rick Garcia, Wyllis Heaton, Ray Hunter, Ann Sanders, Richard Schloss, Frank Serrano, Garrett Speirs, Thomas Van Stein, and Ralph Waterhouse. You could meet and greet all the artists except Dennis Doheny, who couldn’t be there. He donated one gorgeous painting of the bird refuge, which sold

in the first few minutes of the show. The artists were given full access to the house and gardens to create as they chose in oil, watercolor, or pastel but were not limited to scenes from the Casa. There was a sellout crowd of 150 guests, and half of the proceeds went to benefit Casa del Herrero. Co-chairs of this nostalgic afternoon reminiscent of an earlier time were Fran Morrow and Karen Jones Clark. They are both knowledgeable about art, with Fran being an avid collector and a member of the Santa Barbara Art Museum women’s board. Karen is on the Casa board and worked in the fine and decorative arts field for 30 years. “It is such an honor to show my pieces at this extraordinary event, at

this extraordinary venue,” says Rick Garcia, who is one of the longtime participants of local plein-air artists. “I truly believe that our paintings in some way help to preserve these places for future generations and document how they change – even in the smallest detail – over time.” Casa del Herrero is an 11-acre estate with a George Washington Smithdesigned home filled with treasures George and Carrie Steedman bought in Spain. It’s just down the road from the Montecito Library at 1387 East Valley Road. You can have a docent led tour by calling (805) 565-5653.

Write from the Start

The Santa Barbara Writers Conference (SBWC) did its June thing again at the Hyatt Hotel and I was there “Write from the Start.” Well, almost. Barnaby and Mary Conrad founded the conference in 1973, and I went in 1977. So did Gayle Lynds, who just came back to Santa Barbara from Maine to speak to the conferees. We’d be considered not old, but “old timers.” In those days, Gayle was a mom, wife, had a job, and dreamed of writing. Her dream came true big-time, but it took 10 years of labor or as she says, “I worked my ass off.” Part of the problem was her gender. The pundits said a woman couldn’t have written her spy thrillers. Publishers Weekly lists her book Masquerade among the top 10 spy novels of all time. She and Robert Ludlum created the Covert-One series, one of which, The Hades Factor, was a CBS miniseries. Gayle is sometimes called the “reigning queen of espionage.” After she was introduced, she gave high

praise to Monte Schulz, who owns the conference for restoring some of the espirit de corps that was present when the Conrads were in charge. Then she gave five tips on how to fail as a writer: don’t jot down ideas, don’t finish, ignore good advice, too busy, no workspace. Her latest book is The Assassins, which won the Military Writers Society of America’s Founder’s Award. She lost her writer husband Dennis in 2006 and is now remarried to a former judge with a talent for fiction writing. They have co-authored three short stories. An extra treat that evening was seeing Mary Conrad again. She had returned to lend a hand and also to just have fun after working those many years. I can’t wait for her book to come out. It is the history of the SBWC in collaboration with her longtime right-hand man Y. Armando Nieto and veteran workshop leader Matthew J. Pallamary. Our own humor writer Ernie Witham designed the book cover. It will be released in 2017 and will feature names of large luminaries you’ve all heard of. Another Montecito Journal writer is directing the conference and she is Grace Rachow. Kudos, Grace. Fannie Flagg, best-selling author of Fried Green Tomatoes at the Whistle Stop Café, always said, “You can’t imagine what this conference meant to me. If it had not been for this conference, I’d probably still be sitting on a rerun of The Dating Game somewhere.” She was a student back in the early days. The public was invited to attend the evening lectures for $10. They’re interesting even if you’re not a writer. I wasn’t either in the 1970s. •MJ

Blume with a View Fashion designer Kendall Conrad and Santa Barbara Magazine publisher Jennifer Smith Hale hosted a launch bash for author Lesley Blume and her new book, Everybody Behaves Badly, a memoir of writer Ernest Hemingway, which she describes as the true story behind his masterpiece The Sun Also Rises and the period of a 1925 summer in Pamplona, Spain, for the famous running of the bulls. It took Blume, who has written for Vanity Fair, The New Yorker, and The Wall Street Journal, three years to complete the project, with a great deal of archival digging and interviews with many descendants and friends. “I saw all the photos of that period,” Blume told me at the bibliophile bash at Kendall’s eponymous Montecito Country Mart store. “It is a lost generation. I wanted a book with a compelling narrative, and I got it.” Hugh Margerum, Nina and Eric Phillips, Christina Rottman, and Virginia Castagnola with author-signed books (photo by Priscilla)

Point” Recipes for Great Meals and a Better Life is scheduled to be released in the New Year, I’m told. Montecito’s most famous resident’s imprint, currently unnamed, is part of Flatiron, a division of the New York-based publishing giant, MacMillan U.S. “In the past several months on Weight Watchers, I have worked with wonderful chefs to make healthier versions of my favorite meals,” says Oprah, 62. “When people come to my house for lunch or dinner, the number-one thing they ask is, ‘How is this so 30 June – 7 July 2016


delicious and still healthy?’ So, I decided to answer that question with recipes everyone can enjoy.” Oprah, who has a 10 percent stake in Weight Watchers, has lost more than 30 pounds. She also appeared on the April cover of her eponymous O Magazine with three other women, telling the Hearst glossy: “My own struggles with the scale are well-known. I’ve never believed in hiding them. What I do believe in is strength in numbers. “And so when I resolved that 2016 would be the year I got healthy for the long haul, I asked some women to join me.” Oprah isn’t entirely new to the world of the late Julia Child, another resident in our rarefied enclave in the latter chapter of her colorful life. Her personal chef, Rosie Daley, published In the Kitchen with Rosie: Oprah’s Favorite Recipes in 1994. Oprah also contributed an introduction to The Oprah Magazine Cookbook, which came out in 2008. In announcing the imprint last year, Oprah had planned to start with a memoir, The Life You Want. That book has now been postponed to an undetermined date, according to Flatiron, which is expected to release several non-fiction works per year, all selected by Oprah. You go, girl. Strong as Oak Social gridlock reigned supreme when the Bacara threw a bold-faced name packed pre-opening bash for its new oceanside Angel Oak restaurant, which has replaced the hostelry’s former Miro eatery that closed last year. Now, after a multi-million dollar makeover, the 126-seat restaurant with a patio that can accommodate another 60 patrons, features a modern take on steak and seafood prepared by executive chef Vincent Lesage – celebrating his first anniversary at the tony hotel – and his culinary wizards, is ready for its close-up. Costa Mesa-based Hatch Design Group removed the interior walls and brought the glorious Pacific vistas inside complementing the elegant rustic wood and polished stone decor. Upon entering, diners are met with a seven-foot mosaic of an ethereal woman’s face just above the hostess stand, which is surreally fashioned from a granite boulder, while black-and-white photographs depicting California’s stunning coastline dot the walls and potted bonsai trees decorate the eatery. “The ocean was a big inspiration,” says Vincent, who used to work at 30 June – 7 July 2016

Good for Nothing?

M

ost of us have one. To some, it is very precious. Others consider it virtually worthless. This would make a good riddle, with many more mystifying hints; but I won’t tantalize you any further here. The answer is: it’s your VOTE. But why this striking difference in values? People at the high end regard it as the most tangible symbol of democracy. Tears will come to their eyes as they speak of those who died to gain and preserve this sacred privilege. At the other extreme are all the cynics, who see their vote as not making any real difference – in effect, good for nothing. Of course, there are stories of instances when a single vote made a huge difference – but these are more likely to concern small groups, such as legislatures (e.g. the single vote in the Senate that saved President Andrew Johnson from being impeached in 1868) – rather than so-called “popular votes” where the tallies run into millions. We must acknowledge that, regardless of its symbolic value, mathematically your vote is a mere drop in the bucket (actually in many cases much less, since a five-gallon bucket can hold only 19,000 drops of water.) But I am about to present you with an idea for changing all that. I’m sure I can’t be the first person to advocate such a concept – but it certainly is not widely discussed. And I’m prepared for angry responses from some readers. However, what I say is that “one person, one vote” is okay to start with. Every citizen deserves that much, simply, in recognition of his or her dignity as a human being. But, building on that idea, I say that some people deserve to have more than a single vote, and that a “weighted” system could be worked out giving proportionately greater voting power to those who deserve to have more say in running the country. And who would those privileged voters be? We could start with criteria such as education, intelligence, community service, experience of work, travel, parenthood. There could also be written tests, such as we already require for driving a car or for citizenship, to say nothing of occupational and professional certifications, and college degrees. (Isn’t it ironical that people born here automatically become citizens and get a vote, while those who wish to become citizens 30 June – 7 July 2016

have to study and be tested, and in many cases may thus be better informed about how the country is governed than millions of the nativeborn!) At this point, I can hear you objecting: “Yes, but how will all this be set up? Who is going to establish all these criteria and administer all these tests?” I have to admit that there is the rub. The present system, while in many ways illogical, unfair, and inefficient (and worst of all, look at the governments it gives us!) is at least relatively simple and cheap. And, taking the long view, it may be that we are making some kind of political progress. We all know (I hope) that it wasn’t so long ago that women in general were not even allowed to vote at all. And you don’t have to go back much farther to reach a time when such voting as prevailed was based on property.

I say that some people deserve to have more than a single vote The more land you owned, the more right you had to participate in the governing process. Of course, these systems varied from place to place, as they still do today. And regardless of theoretical distinctions, great wealth (no matter how acquired) can override all powers of the ballot-box. Then, if you really want to get down to the nitty-gritty, the whole idea of voting is a great advance over what preceded it, which was simply the law that might makes right. In other words, voting, like field sports and many other games, is really a kind of symbolic warfare, replacing the uncontestable notion that we have the best chance of winning if there are more of us than there are of them. (If you have any lingering doubts about this, just ask General Custer.) So maybe we are, slowly, moving in the right direction. But anomalies will no doubt continue to plague us. For example, as I have personally experienced, in Santa Barbara it required more than 9,000 signatures to get a proposal (to ban leaf blowers) on the local ballot – but only 100 signatures to get myself as a candidate for city council on the same ballot! (It won. I didn’t)  •MJ

THURSDAY, JUNE 30 Ogres in the Valley – Director Brad Carroll promises that PCPA Theaterfest’s take on Shrek The Musical will put its unique spin on the Tony Award-winning adventure-filled musical based on the Oscar-winning animated film. The fractured fairy tale will still be silly and funny, but his aim for the heart of the show to focus on finding the hero in all of us. A tall order, perhaps, considering the story finds the grumpy ogre of the title undertaking a life-changing journey alongside the wisecracking Donkey and a feisty princess who resists her rescue, a tale also populated by a short-tempered bad guy, a cookie with an attitude, and over a dozen other fairy-tale misfits. It ain’t easy being green! At the very least, the PCPA creative team has produced uniquely original designs for scenery, costumes, lights, and sound to support the cast headed by PCPA resident artists Erik Stein as Shrek, Karin Hendricks as Princess Fiona, George Walker as Pinocchio, and Michael Jenkinson as Lord Farquaad. After a four-day run indoors in Santa Maria, the Shrek-tacular musical moves out under the stars in Solvang for a month-long stay. WHEN: Tuesdays-Sundays at 8 pm, today through July 31 WHERE: Solvang Festival Theater, 420 2nd Street,

Solvang COST: $38.50 - $49.50 (Discounts for seniors, students, children, and preview performances tonight and tomorrow) INFO: 9228313 or www.pcpa.org FRIDAY, JULY 1 Soaring at the Bowl – The zany New Zealand-based folk-comedy duo comprised of Bret McKenzie and Jemaine Clement is still going strong, making people laugh for more than a decade now, since their start as a BBC radio series and a two-season HBO TV show. There’s nothing quite like an evening with the self-described Grammy Award-winning “fourth-most popular guitar-based digi-bongo a capella-rap-funk-comedy folk duo”, even if they haven’t put out a new album in more than seven years. The good news is, we hear they’ve worked up some new material that they will showcase exclusively on the current concert tour, dubbed, most brilliantly, The “Flight of the Conchords Sing Flight of the Conchords” tour. Opening is comedian Kurt Braunohler, whose stand-up has been described as “refreshing idiocy from an enthusiastic weirdo,” and who has performed on a half-hour Comedy Central Special, and late night spots on The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon, Conan, and Late Night with Seth Meyers. WHEN:

ENDING THIS WEEK LAUNCH PAD Summer Reading Series – UCSB Department of Theater and Dance’s innovative Launch Pad program expands to the early summer for three staged readings featuring new plays from Anne GarcíaRomero, Christina McMahon, and Joyce Carol Oates, each directed by program creator Risa Brainin. The authors collaborate with Brainin and a team of undergraduate students to further develop the works, providing value not only to the students who learn how to work on a play in its earliest stages, but also for the playwrights who are able to fully grasp the potential of their characters and the words as the readings progress. Meanwhile, the audience is not only able to be first to witness the birth of new work, but also to shape the further development by giving feedback. June 30 brings Standby by McMahon, the first individually authored script from the creative writer, UCSB academic, and meditation teacher. The plot boils around Carina and her sister Audra, who must fly halfway across the world to the Cape Verde Islands in West Africa to deal with their dying 64-year-old father while soothing childhood wounds and battling personal and professional demons of their own.... The series ends July 7 with Bad Touch by Oates, one of the most prolific writers of our time who is better known for her novels, short stories, critical essays, and poetry. The play examines a journey of an irreverent, outspoken, and deeply idealistic young woman who moves to the Midwest to begin a new life teaching in America’s heartland, but find that her unbridled tongue and sense of humor get her in trouble.

EVENTS by Steven Libowitz

SATURDAY, JULY 2 Three for Joy – That’s the title of the Celtic trio performing a benefit concert early this evening at SOhO, and we can easily come up with three good reasons to attend. First, the fiddle-cello-mandolin band comprises three pre-teen siblings – Angela Rose Padula (age 9) and her brothers Dominic (12) and Joseph (10). Second, the concert is a benefit for Grace Fisher, the now 18-year-old Santa Barbara cellist who, in December 2014, on the cusp of graduation from Santa Barbara High and in anticipation of attending Berklee College of Music that fall, was suddenly stricken with the rare polio-like disease acute flaccid myelitis, which resulted in permanent paralysis from her neck down. The concert is a benefit for the Grace Fisher Foundation, helping to support Fisher’s recovery. But perhaps the best reason to be there: the music itself. The Padulas are all, like Grace was, members of Santa Barbara Strings, the classical chamber music program, so their chops are wellhoned to grace their love for Celtic tunes. WHEN: 5:30-6:30 pm WHERE: SOhO, 1221 State Street, upstairs in Victoria Court COST: $15 general, $5 youth, free age 12 and under INFO: 962-7776 or www.sohosb.com

7 pm WHERE: 1122 North Milpas St. COST: $44.50-$64.50 INFO: 9627411 or www.sbbowl.com Get Your ACT Together – Annie Get Your Gun, which undergoes yet another production as the major summer play at Ojai ACT, was somewhat ahead of its time, given that the story focuses on a strong female character who more than holds her own in a man’s world, in this case, America’s old Wild West. Gun is based on the true story of Phoebe Ann Mosey, who at age 12 was the chief provider for her large family because of her natural ability to shoot game for food. Her fame spread when, on a lark, she beat (at age 15) the nation’s best marksman and trick shot, forging an instant connection leading to their marriage. After joining Buffalo Bill’s Wild West show, Annie – who changed her name to Annie Oakley – became so popular that Frank quit to be her manager. Holly Sewell portrays the legendary sharpshooter with a sharp tongue, opposite Scott White as Frank, in the ever-popular Tony Award-winning musical with songs by Irving Berlin, including “There’s No Business Like Show Business.” Other characters include the famed Buffalo Bill (Cecil Sutton) and his showtime rival Pawnee Bill (Buddy Wilds) plus Chief Sitting Bull (Armando Hernandez), all set during the rough riding days when the Wild West shows were as popular as rock shows are today. A special opening weekend gala takes place this Sunday, July 3, featuring a Prosecco Reception at 1:30 pm, reserved

OjaiACT.org Bay Windows – Breathing Space: Recent Prints by Bay Hallowell, which opens today the the Architectural Foundation of Santa Barbara, showcases new work by the printmaker who began her career as a museum educator/curator at the Carnegie Museum of Art (Pittsburgh) and the Philadelphia Museum of Art and then worked as a teacher at the Tyler School of Art (Temple University) before relocating to Santa Barbara. The show’s title is meant to connote a physical environment, a state of mind, a moment in time, as well as the act of breathing – the intersections of which Hallowell explores in vibrant, multilayered monoprints created with oilbased inks using stencil and viscosity techniques. Lush gardens, architectural elements, the experience of breathing and of meditating, and a sense of both inner and outer space are all subtly invoked in this diverse series of unique, light-suffused prints. Today’s opening reception with the artist features refreshments and music by the Jaybirds String Band.

SUNDAY, JULY 3 Mission of Service – Mission Tattoo sponsors the third annual “These Colors Don’t Run” event, which features a pinup contest, military vehicle display, musical performances, art show, silent auction, and other activities just a day before the fireworks takes place over the holiday weekend. The Luck, Three for Joy, Phantom Pomps, The Miskreants, and Vamp are among the bands performing, while the pin-up hopefuls will compete over three different categories including Classic Pinup Attire, Swimwear/ Beachwear, and Eveningwear (models must don period-correct attire of 192060s in all categories in the show that’s meant as a “tribute to the sexy classics.” Judges include Miss Lucky Red, VFW commander Jonathan Church and Carmen Muñoz, while The Barbarazzi, Atomic Bill, and Aamp Studio serve as photographers. Proceeds go directly to our local veterans, their families, and active military, through such Santa Barbara volunteer-based organizations as American Legion, AMVETS, Disabled American Veterans, Vietnam Veterans of America and American GI Forum. WHEN: noon-10 pm WHERE: Veterans Memorial Building, 112 W. Cabrillo Blvd. COST: $5 at the door ($25 entrance fee for pin-up contestants) INFO: www.thesecolorsdontrunsb.com

SUNDAY, JULY 3 Color Me Reminiscing – Music lovers can argue for hours about the greatest decade in pop, though the response pretty much seems to depend on when it was that you were a teenager. So unless you lived under a rock or grew up in a strictly classical music household, we’re thinking if you’re somewhere between the ages of 30-45 you’ve already got tonight’s show at the Bowl marked in ink on your calendar (scratch that, we meant highlighted on Calendar in your iPhone). The inaugural edition of I Love The ‘90s Tour features a rotating line-up of some of the most iconic, indelible names in rap, hip hop and R&B – which were among the prominent genres of the decade. Here in Santa Barbara, it’s Vanilla Ice, Salt-N-Pepa, Color Me Badd, Tone Loc, and Young MC, so expect to hear chart-topping hits “Let’s Talk About Sex”, “Shoop”, “Ice, Ice Baby”, “I Wanna Sex You Up”, “Funky Cold Medina”, and a whole lot more during the amphitheater-sized dance party, a nostalgia-driven blast from the past.

The Maltese Falcon stars Bogie as no-nonsense private detective Sam Spade, who gets more than he bargained for when he takes a case brought to him by femme fatale Miss Wonderly, played by Mary Astor. On the quest for a priceless statuette, Spade must contend with murder, deceit and memorable villains such as a quirky low-life crook played by Peter Lorre.

Schuman, Mozart, and Brahms were on the menu at the Lobero with brass players, trumpeters Barbara Butler and Charles Geyer joining trombonist Mark Lawrence, Alex Laskey on

horn, and Dan Honaker on tuba, for Schuman’s American Hymn, which kicked off the entertaining concert. Pianist Jeremy Denk was in top form for Mozart’s quartet in G minor, with Autumn Chodorowski on violin, Mathew Sinno on viola, and Songhee Lee on cello. The sold-out show wrapped with Brahams Serenade No. 1 in D Major, featuring ten talented players. Just 24 hours later, it was the turn of Music Academy alumnus Thomas Hampson, accompanied by pianist Tamara Sanikidze, to shine at Hahn Hall singing works from Strauss, Ravel, and Barber in honor of Marilyn Horne, Lotte Lehmann, and Martial Singher.
