Fire Destroys One Of US’s Leading Organ Makers

Sparks from a malfunctioning fan appear to have ignited sawdust at the factory of Dobson Pipe Organ Builders in Lake City, Iowa on Tuesday afternoon, starting a fire that consumed almost everything but part of the exterior walls. Among the instruments Dobson is best known for are the organs at the Kimmel Center in Philadelphia, the Cathedral of Our Lady of the Angels in Los Angeles, and Merton College, Oxford; the now-incinerated instrument under construction had been for the historic St. James...

Whicker: Terance Mann reaches peak, brings Clippers close to another

It takes about 15 minutes, depending on the line, to ride to the top of the Eiffel Tower. Terance Mann needed less than a second to scale its NBA equivalent. He didn’t do it for the view. He did it at the end of a disjoined Clippers possession late in Wednesday’s fourth quarter, in which the shot clock narrowed the viable options to one. He had to climb Rudy Gobert, the Frenchman known as the Stifle Tower. Nothing much was riding on this. The Western Conference semifinals were tied 2-2, and Kawh...

Netflix docuseries ‘This Is Pop’ explores the making of music from Abba to Zapp

When the creators of the new Netflix series “This Is Pop” began thinking about how to tell the story of pop music in an eight-episode docuseries, they looked first to the model of their ongoing series “Hip-Hop Evolution,” which last year finished its fourth season on the same streaming network. That series traced the development of rap and hip-hop from a now-legendary party in the Bronx in 1973 where DJ Kool Herc set in motion a series of events that would lead to the genre and its many offshoot...

Boorstin—Look In The Mirror

Daniel Boorstin The Image: A Guide to Pseudo-Events in America (1961) [My notes say:] p. 194—"...a vague but attractive image he has of himself." THIS is a legit example of technology-driven change in society and culture: the sheer growth in ease and frequency of seeing oneself (or if you insist one's own Image) cannot have had less than a total impact on questions of self-image; an environmental change in human development whereby many people remain veritably arrested in Lacan's mirror stage,...

Opera Philadelphia Gives Up This Year’s O Festival

For the second year in a row, the company’s critically praised September week of mostly new opera is called off; even as other groups expect to be in the concert hall by then, management feels that opera requires too many people collaborating in too-close quarters to be safe so soon. Meanwhile, says general director David Devan, the company will “continue the artistic exploration of cinematic opera [online].” – The Philadelphia Inquirer

Markieff Morris has been ‘unsung hero’ as Lakers battle without injured stars

No less a basketball pundit than ESPN’s Zach Lowe offered a mea culpa on Friday in his weekly column of ten NBA observations. The sentiment could not have been more direct. “Boy was I wrong about Markieff Morris”. For those paying attention during the Lakers’ 7-8 stretch with neither LeBron James or Anthony Davis, it’s been clear that Morris has been one of the most consistent, most steadying presences on the team on both ends. In the last 15 games, he’s been the team’s fifth-leading scorer (11....

3 ‘American Idol’ singers from Southern California are getting another chance on the show

Ahead of Lakers’ 2-game set with Jazz, injuries seize the spotlight

In another season, an alternate universe where the world and the NBA are set in their normal rhythms, the weekend would be ushering in something special: a two-game series between the Lakers and the Utah Jazz, each with a legitimate chance to play for the Larry O’Brien trophy this summer. Those teams will still meet, on Saturday afternoon and Monday night, but the billing of two Western Conference contenders squaring off is significantly diminished by the players who won’t be suiting up. The Jaz...

How Beethoven (And The Philadelphia Orchestra) Brought The US And China Together

The idea that the world’s two most powerful countries can simply “decouple” as their strategic competition grows fiercer — a concept promoted by China hawks — doesn’t match reality. In the case of classical music, as Beethoven in Beijing illustrates, the ties that bind our two countries are historically driven and deeply emotional. – Philadelphia Inquirer

15 Tipps, um deine Fernfreundschaften zu pflegen

Was Philadelphia’s Leading Classical Radio Host Just Fired?

Gregg Whiteside, who for 17 years hosted weekday morning programming and the Philadelphia Orchestra concert broadcasts at WRTI, abruptly disappeared from the air last month, with only a brief farewell note about his retirement (as it was termed) several days later on the station’s website. The staff had been alerted with a one-sentence memo saying that Whiteside no longer works there “effective immediately,” and station execs have said absolutely nothing about the matter since. –

Jazmine Sullivan: 'I want to get to the root of why people do things'

A Concert Series Programmed For You To Stream While Going To Sleep

The Philadelphia new-music producer Bowerbird has planned a set of seven concerts, each timed for 10:00 or 11:00 pm, that aim to put listeners in that odd space between sleep and wakefulness — thus the series title, Liminal States. Says pianist Marilyn Nonken, who opens the set next Wednesday with Morton Feldman’s Triadic Memories, “Everybody is so traumatized and beat up that if a concert involves another state of awareness, that’s a very attractive prospect. … It’s a physically different plac...

Two Baritones Learned That Where They Were Working When The Pandemic Hit Made All The Difference
