LAUSD board race: Heather Repenning leaps over Graciela Ortiz to possibly face Jackie Goldberg in May runoff

New vote tallies in the LAUSD school board district 5 election released Friday afternoon revealed a jump by Mayor Eric Garcetti-backed Heather Repenning, as political veteran Jackie Goldberg remained comfortably in the lead with more than 48 percent of the vote. Because teachers union-backed Goldberg failed to secure a majority, she will face her runner up in a May 14 runoff.

Meet the 10 candidates running for the LAUSD school board seat left vacant by Ref Rodriguez

By Esmeralda Fabián Romero | LA School Report The 10 candidates in the race for L.A. Unified’s vacant school board seat have been in full swing participating in community forums and other public events as Tuesday’s special election approaches. The new board member for Board District 5 will represent about 100,000 students in some very different communities: from the heavily Latino southeast cities — including Huntington Park, Maywood and Bell — and from the more affluent neighborhoods north of d...

A big LAUSD special election is on Tuesday. But Latino turnout will likely be small

By Esmeralda Fabián Romero | LA School Report Next week’s special election for the vacant school board seat is expected to draw “minuscule” voter turnout, and experts predict Latino participation will be even lower, particularly in the board district’s poorer southeast section, where Latinos make up almost the entire enrollment and where the most struggling schools are located. But despite the urgency of improving educational outcomes for students living in the southeast communities, most likely...

LAUSD’s Spanish-speaking parents engage candidates in forum ahead of school board special election

With the stakes high for whoever might take over the Los Angeles Unified School District Board’s District 5 seat in March, nine candidates for the seat faced parents Wednesday night in a forum that gave them a chance to weigh in on issues parents care about. For some parents, the event left a little more to be desired for lack of attention to issues like charters schools in the wake of a massive teacher strike underpinned by the issue. What did get attention was how school board hopefuls plan to...

Glenn Gould’s Heavily Marked-Up Score for the Goldberg Variations Surfaces, Letting Us Look Inside His Creative Process

Does it make sense to call Glenn Gould, that most prodigious and unusual interpreter of classical piano, a composer? While his radio documentary trilogy should earn him the title, his classical performances and recordings remain bound—albeit sometimes maddeningly loosely for certain tastes—to the work of others, whether Mozart, Schoenberg, Strauss, Sibelius, Beethoven, Brahms, or J.S. Bach, who provided Gould with the material that would launch his career, the “Goldberg” Variations, which he fi...

How Glenn Gould’s Eccentricities Became Essential to His Playing & Personal Style: From Humming Aloud While Playing to Performing with His Childhood Piano Chair

The cultural law that we must indulge, or at least tolerate, the quirks of genius has much less force these days than it once did. Notoriously perfectionistic Stanley Kubrick’s fabled fits of verbal abuse, for example, might skirt a line with actors and audiences now, though it’s hard to argue with the results of his process. Many other examples of artists’ bad behavior need no further mention, they are now so well-known and rightly reviled. When it comes to another legendarily demanding...

Here’s how to reach your LAUSD school board member — without sleeping overnight on the sidewalk

By Esmeralda Fabián Romero, LA School Report Los Angeles Unified’s seven school board members — or six for now — make vital decisions impacting more than 570,000 students. Parents, community members, and the general public want their concerns to be heard, but what’s the best way to connect with the board members? Besides email and phone, there are board meetings most Tuesdays with designated times for people to address the board members. But the process has long been fraught with frustration, as...

Glenn Gould Plays Bach on His U.S. TV Debut … After Leonard Bernstein Explains What Makes His Playing So Great (1960)

Why, 35 years after his death, do so many music lovers still respect Glenn Gould above all other pianists? One might assume that, since he played the work of such well-known composers as Bach, Beethoven, Mozart, Haydn, and Brahms, he would have acceptable substitutes among the most highly skilled pianists of each successive generation. But none have ever taken Gould's place, and quite possibly none ever will. His distinctiveness owes both to sheer aptitude, and to something else besides:...

Download 400,000 Free Classical Musical Scores & 46,000 Free Classical Recordings from the International Music Score Library Project

The pleasure of listening to classical music, as every classical music aficionado knows, goes well beyond listening to one's favorite piece. You can't have a favorite piece without having a favorite performance of that piece, played by certain musicians, presided over by a certain conductor, and recorded in a certain hall. And even so, many other recordings of that piece may well exist that you haven't heard yet, one of which could one day usurp your personal top spot. About many compositions t...

The Death of Civility

Remember the calls for increased civility following the 2011 shooting in Tucson where Congresswoman Giffords was wounded and 18 others were shot?  Obama called for "a new era of civility." The University of Arizona (Tucson) opened a new "National Institute for Civil Discourse."  "Political Civility" was the new buzzword - and, of course, all of the incivility came from those troglodytes on the Right.  In an early example of "fake news," the shooting was blamed on "right-wing rhetoric" because Sa...

Carrie Fisher’s Long Career as a Writer, Screenwriter, and Hollywood Fixer: “I’m a Writer” First and Foremost

By now the news of Carrie Fisher’s death has hit hard all over the world. It’s true that for an entire generation of people, her breakout role at 19 as Princess Leia in the original Star Wars trilogy has made her a sci-fi icon and a childhood crush—both roles she longed to escape. Tribute after tribute on social media and elsewhere reminded us almost immediately after Tuesday’s announcement that her life and work have had a much wider impact, even on people who have never even seen a Sta...

Watch a 27-Year-Old Glenn Gould Play Bach & Put His Musical Genius on Display (1959)

Glenn Gould died young, in 1982 at the age of 50, but the Canadian classical pianist made great contributions to the world of music in his short life. He did it in part by starting young — so young, in fact, that he first felt the vibrations of music played for him while still in the womb by his mother. She’d decided even then to raise a successful musician, and her plan surely worked better than she could ever have expected. Young Glenn had perfect pitch, learned to read notes before he...
