Fireworks Go Off Without A Hitch

by Lucy Gellman | Jul 5, 2015 8:50 pm | Comments (1)

Adam Williamson was having a good night. It was not quite dark, and already he had walked the U.S. Coast Guard Band through several patriotic anthems, a cloudless, orange-streaked sky settling over East Rock as they played. Then he moved onto Charles Ives and American jazz standards, the sky morphing to a velvety indigo. Now, strains of La Marseillaise marched triumphantly from the horns and woodwinds, climaxing before they were overtaken by a stronger Russian theme.

Arts Council Grooves Into 2nd Half-Century

by Lucy Gellman | Jun 8, 2015 12:23 pm

Lucy Gellman Photo “Nah nah nah nah nah nah, nah nah nah, hey Jude,” sang the members of 60s Satisfaction, their bodies a blur of tie-dye from the stage.

Behind them, the sky had turned to an unbroken, low stretch of silk blue; in front, couples had gathered to dance with abandon, some reliving their teenage years while others experienced the sixties for the first time.

A few attendees trickled into a nearby portal to the past, transported back to the mid-20th Century as they ducked under a doorway that led to Wonderland, and straight down memory lane.

Sea Change Comes To Worthington Hooker

by Lucy Gellman | May 15, 2015 4:12 pm

Hooker eighth-grader Melissa Cisija was acting out again. Seated against a backdrop of her favorite possessions — a globe, rocking softly to and fro from its stony shelf, an eyeglass, and a fork, formerly known as a dinglehopper — she crossed her arms, shook her head, and glared at the audience before her.

“I just want to belong!,” she exclaimed.
