Ruth Bader Ginsburg’s Favorite Opera Recordings (and Her First Appearance in an Opera)

U.S. Supreme Court justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg’s death has thrown an unbearably fraught political year into further disarray, a fact that has sadly overshadowed memorialization of her inspiring life and career. Ginsburg was a personal hero for millions of activists and students—from grade school to law school; an icon casually identified by her initials by those who felt like they knew her. “For many women, and many girls,” Sheryl Gay Stolberg writes in a New York Times tribute, her loss...

Why and How the Firearms Sales Got Spikes During Covid-19?

The Covid-19 pandemic has changed things for the foreseeable future as we know it. We have grown conscious in cleanliness and wearing masks have become a fashion statement. We practice social distancing like our life depended on it. The pandemic done something I never thought I’d see and that’s shut down sports in America. The NHL and NBA restarted with the bubble concept, while baseball chose not to go that route. Unfortunately, they have had several games cancelled due to positive tests. The...

Five Musicians Talk About Diversity In Chicago Orchestras

In a July article in the New York Times, music critic Anthony Tommasini argued that such an approach was no longer tenable and that orchestras had to take more “proactive steps” to hiring. – Chicago Sun-Times

Stop Blind Auditions For Orchestras? No — Auditions Should Become Even More Blind

Jeremy Reynolds, responding to New York Times chief critic Anthony Tommasini’s argument that U.S. orchestras will never become more racially balanced without affirmative action, points out that “blind auditions aren’t really blind.” What’s more, as Pittsburgh Symphony bassist Jeffrey Grubbs (who is Black) tells Reynolds, the real problem is the makeup of the student body at music schools: “I don’t know that diversity hiring would change things much, as my impression is the highest caliber Black...

How Broadway’s Hamilton contributes to the long history of small screen racial discourse

On 3 July 2020, Lin-Manuel Miranda’s Hamilton—perhaps somewhat inadvertently—took its place alongside decades of Broadway shows and stars which had helped foster an awareness of American race relations via the small screen. When Disney won the $75 million bidding war for the global theatrical distribution rights of Hamilton, the filmed recording of the show’s original cast performing on the stage of the Richard Rodgers Theatre was just another feather in the media monolith’s cap. Disney soon ann...

Ella Fitzgerald’s Lost Interview about Racism & Segregation: Recorded in 1963, It’s Never Been Heard Until Now

When Ella Fitzgerald took the stage for the first time at the Apollo Theater in Harlem, “we heard a sound so perfect” that the entire theater went silent, says dancer and choreographer Norma Miller. “You could hear a rat piss on cotton.” Fitzgerald was 17 years old, and she had already faced severe racial discrimination. “Everything was race,” says Miller, describing the de facto segregation in Harlem in the 20s and 30s. “You couldn’t go out of your zone… slavery is over, but you don’t h...

32, single, kinderlos: Durch die Pandemie verliere ich gerade wertvolle Datingzeit

Dating und Corona. Das klingt nicht gerade nach dem perfekten Traumpaar, oder? Vor der Pandemie verliefen meine Dates alle in etwa gleich: Erst saß ich nervös im Bus und checkte aller paar Minuten, wie meine Haare aussehen und ob da nicht doch was zwischen meinen Zähnen klemmt. Dann traf ich einen Fremden in einer vollen, dunklen Bar, trank ein paar Gin Tonics und hoffte, dass es zwischen uns irgendwann funken würde. Manchmal tat es das auch, meistens aber nicht. Danach fuhr ich immer (!) mi...
