Variants of COVID-19, like delta and now omicron, have derailed some performing arts groups’ best-laid plans to return to theaters with in-person audiences.

The flurry of press releases announcing in-person seasons last year seemed like a triumphant comeback. But the arts, and the performing arts in particular, are having to cancel, postpone or move productions online due to recent increases in COVID-19 cases in their communities.

Even Broadway has not been spared the highly contagious omicron variant.

The productions tried to get through. One-liners and swingers are in the spotlight and getting their due to keep shows running.

But in December, about half of all Broadway shows were canceled due to theater employees testing positive, the The New York Times reported.

“Even the most resource-rich shows were facing challenges that ended up shutting down shows or shutting them down altogether,” Carson Elrod told members of the US House Small Business Committee on Wednesday during a briefing. virtual presentation on the country’s creative economy. Elrod is an actor and co-founder of the national advocacy group Be an artistic hero.

Here in the Louisville area, there have been a recent series of pandemic-related programming changes.

Kentucky Shakespeare has postponed its production of “Shakespeare’s R&Jby Joe Calarco. The show, co-presented with Pandora Productions, was scheduled for late January at the Henry Clay Theater in Louisville.

An email from Kentucky Shakespeare sent on Tuesday said the race had been postponed to August and will be held at the organization’s headquarters in Old Louisville.

“Due to the surge of omicron, to allow enough time to properly rehearse and prepare for production, we have decided to postpone,” the email reads.

“We want to bring Shakespeare down from a pedestal and find relevance today with his work,” produced artistic director Matt Wallace. told WFPL News in November of the game. “And this play is just a beautiful retelling of ‘Romeo and Juliet’.”

“Shakespeare’s R&J” will run from August 17-28.

The Louisville Orchestra has canceled “Music Without Borders” concerts on Friday and Saturday.

Due to multiple COVID exposures within the orchestra and the lack of time available to find replacements, the Louisville Orchestra is unable to perform these concerts safely,” reads a press release from the organization.

The orchestra will refund all tickets, according to the statement.

His Sunday concert ofPierre and the Wolfat the Brown Theater will go ahead as planned, however.

Louisville composer and flautist KiMani Bridges was due to have a world premiere of one of her works at the now-cancelled concerts. Bridges’ piece “STATiC” will debut during Louisville Orchestra concerts in mid-May.

The orchestra’s marketing manager, Michelle Winters, said replacing musicians was an ongoing challenge when they tested positive or were exposed to the virus.

“For almost every gig this season, we had to hire replacements when people got sick or were significantly exposed,” Winters said in an email. “Finding competent professionals has sometimes been a challenge. This one simply proved too much for our available resources.

She said future variations or surges mean they are “potentially facing additional program changes for spring concerts”.

Louisville Ballet also had to revamp January’s lineup thanks to the omicron variant.

Last week, the ballet announced the cancellation of in-person performances of ‘ChorShow’ due to the ‘alarming increase in COVID-19 infection rates in our community,’ says an email signed by the director. artistic. Robert Curan.

The ballet’s choreographic showcase presentation was scheduled for January 12-16 at its Main Street studios.

But it was not a complete cancellation of the race.

“ChorShow” will be presented on “the digital stage,” according to the email, and is expected to be available to stream in February.

The impacts of the omicron surge are not limited to the performing arts. Museums and other cultural institutions also feel it. The Smithsonian in Washington D.C. temporary closure and modified hours of several of its facilities earlier this month due to staff shortages due to COVID-19 infections and exposures.

Continuing uncertainty keeps national and local arts advocacy groups busy

In one virtual conversation with a committee of the United States House of Representatives on Wednesday, members of arts unions and organizations formed in response to the pandemic, such as the National Independent Venue Association (NIVA), have urged lawmakers to back legislation they say will help the arts recover. These invoices included:

They also advocated for a federal arts and culture cabinet, with its own secretary, which also caught the attention of arts leaders and artists in the Louisville area.

During the virtual meeting, Republican U.S. Representative Andrew Garbarino from New York asked one of the online arts representatives to speak “about what states have done” for their arts and culture sectors.

“Because we also sent them a lot of money to help with more local issues,” he said.

Kentucky Governor Andy Beshear earmarked $10 million in American Rescue Plan Act funds for nonprofit arts and culture organizations in its draft budget.

This 10 million dollars did not enter the the State House spending bill passed Thursday night. However, there is still some budget writing process to go through and revisions will likely be made in the coming weeks.

How is this prom going to be different from other proms?

Of course, anyone with special needs can attend the school prom. However, some of them can’t because of flashing lights and loud music. This ball will be accommodating for those with sensory issues.

What made Joslynn decide to go for it as her senior project

Minneapolis (KROC-AM News) – A Minneapolis woman has been sentenced to 100 months in prison for her role in a series of violent carjackings in the Twin Cities.

Krisanne Benjamin, 25, was sentenced to 100 months in prison, followed by two years of probation, and ordered to pay $13,323.53 in restitution, according to the Justice Department.

Court documents show that on August 28, 2020, Benjamin and Jeremiah Ironrope, 25, drove a brown SUV to a parking lot in Richfield, where they parked near a 2017 Audi. Ironrope approached the driver of the ‘Audi and pointed a 12 gauge shotgun, with a sawed off barrel, at the driver and demanded the keys to the car. Benjamin watched from the brown SUV as Ironrope started the Audi and drove away. Benjamin then followed him in the brown SUV.

According to court documents, in the early hours of the next morning, Minnesota State Patrol located the stolen Audi, which was driven by Ironrope and occupied by Benjamin. Officers attempted to stop the vehicle, but Ironrope drove off at high speed. During the chase, Benjamin exited the vehicle and fled on foot as Ironrope continued to flee in the Audi.

The vehicle was eventually found running and unoccupied in Minneapolis. Documents indicate the vehicle was partially spray painted and officers found a stolen wallet, spray paint bottles, hat, gloves and receipts in the vehicle. Police also found a used 12-gauge shotgun shell under the driver’s seat.

Records show Benjamin pleaded guilty to one count of carjacking on September 7, 2021. On September 9, 2021, Ironrope pleaded guilty to one count of carjacking and one count of using, carrying and brandishing a firearm during and in connection with a crime of violence. He is expected to be sentenced on April 7, 2022.

As part of their guilty plea, Ironrope and Benjamin admitted to two additional carjackings that occurred on July 26, 2020 in Maple Grove and August 7, 2020 in St. Paul. In both cases, the defendants physically assaulted the victims before stealing their vehicles. Ironrope also admitted to two carjackings in December 2020 in St. Louis Park and St. Paul. In both cases, Ironrope pointed a handgun at the victims before stealing their vehicles.

(LONDON) – Duchess Kate begins 2022 with a milestone birthday.

The Duchess of Cambridge turns 40 on January 9, a birthday she is expected to celebrate privately with her family.

Kate, the wife of Prince William and mother of three, appears to be starting her new decade with a renewed emphasis on her royal role.

In the nearly 11 years that she married Prince William at Westminster Abbey, she has become one of the most popular members of the British Royal Family.

And in recent years, Kate has taken on an increasingly prominent role in the Royal Family amid family changes.

At 95, Queen Elizabeth II has reduced her public commitments, especially since a brief hospitalization in October. And Prince Harry and Duchess Meghan’s decision to step back as royals has left William and Kate, now the only royals of their generation, to take on more duties.

The growing public profile was a “significant transformation” for Kate, who was propelled into the public limelight when she started dating William while in college, according to the royal ABC News contributor. , Victoria Murphy.

“I think her desire to do a good job, to be loved by the public and respected by the family was palpable at first, and she was clearly very nervous when the spotlight was on her in relation to public speaking. “said Murphy. “She built up her workload very gradually, initially taking on a small number of sponsorships and taking time before making solo appearances and speeches.”

“But over the years Kate has gained tremendous confidence and is now a driving force behind the way she and William work and the causes they champion,” she said.

It was Kate, for example, who came up with the idea to focus on mental health as a cause, according to Murphy, which spawned the highly successful Heads Together campaign that started in 2016 and continues to be central to William and Kate’s work to this day. .

As the Cambridges prepare to one day become King and Queen Consort, Murphy says audiences can expect to see Kate grow even more in her role as she focuses on causes close to her heart.

“I’ve always thought Kate is a team player, a poise and a good listener, and these things have served her well over the year,” said Murphy. “I think she also has a lot of compartmentalizing ability, as the Queen has been said to do, which is an important quality in dealing with the pressures of the public role.”

Since becoming a mom eight years ago, Kate has focused much of her attention on supporting new parents and young children.

In early 2020, just before the onset of the coronavirus pandemic, Kate launched a nationwide inquiry to explore what Britons think about child rearing, with a focus on children under 5 years.

Then, in June last year, the Duchess launched the Royal Foundation Center for Early Childhood, which she says is designed to “raise awareness of why the first five years of life are so important to our people. future outcomes in life, and what we can do as a society to seize this golden opportunity to create a happier, more mentally healthy and more stimulating society. “

At the same time, Kate and the Royal Foundation, the charitable arm of William and Kate, published “Big Change Starts Small,” a research report on early childhood development.

Kate has also focused much of her work on including the outdoors in early childhood development. She helped design a ‘Back to Nature’ garden at the RHS Chelsea Flower Show in 2019, and the following year was named co-chair of the UK Scout Association, marking the first time that a royal woman has held the title of president or co-chair of the scouts.

“I think what’s changed over the past few years is that it’s become very clear what the main areas of Kate’s work are in a way that feels a lot more focused and immersive,” Murphy said. “She has always been interested in the outdoors and young people, but the fact that she makes these areas the cornerstones of her work has become much more evident.”

Murphy said Kate’s commitment to the cause of early childhood education is particularly striking, noting, “It’s a difficult and very broad area, but she has shown real and serious commitment to it.” over a long period of time which I think has earned him a lot. respect from the people who work in this field.

During the pandemic, Kate offered her support to parents, students and teachers, and spoke about the experience of quarantining and leading virtual learning for her own children, Prince George, 8 , Princess Charlotte, 6, and Prince Louis, 3.

The glimpse Kate gave her and William’s family life is just one example of how the Duchess’s growing confidence made her feel more comfortable, according to Murphy.

Kate and William launched a YouTube channel last year, where they share more behind-the-scenes content. And in 2020, Kate gave a rare interview to a podcast focused on motherhood, where she opened up about her mother’s guilt.

“The [podcast] It was a courageous move because it could have backfired on people if people had criticized the fact that she had access to a lot more help than most, ”Murphy said. “But it ended up being one of the best things she could have done, as it clearly showed how active she is and the way she is raising her three children.”

Kate has also been more public in recent years about her own passions, whether playing in sports, like the tennis match that a big fan Kate played with US Open winner Emma Raducanu. last year, or photography.

Kate, a college art student who is often the photographer behind family photos shared with the public, started a photography project, “Hold Still,” last year to capture life during the coronavirus pandemic.

The photographs were compiled into a book in collaboration with the National Portrait Gallery, of which Kate is a patron.

Most recently, in December, Kate hosted her first Christmas carol concert at Westminster Abbey, honoring the people and organizations who have supported their communities during the pandemic.

During the concert, Kate delivered a surprise performance, showing one of her unknown passions, the piano, when she accompanied singer Tom Walker.

“These things show a willingness to put herself forward and allow us to see more of who she is and what she loves,” Murphy said.

And while Kate seems to be more in her element when she’s outdoors or with kids, she’s also happy to embrace the “glamor side of royal life,” according to Murphy.

She was stunned in a gold evening gown at the world premiere of the latest James Bond film in September and won accolades the following month for wearing a recycled Alexander McQueen dress at the inaugural Earthshot Prize Awards.

“Over the years there has been a lot of excitement when she has worn tiaras from The Queen’s Collection,” said Murphy. “And even a decade into her public role, she still easily commands all of the front pages whenever she makes a red carpet appearance.”

While the COVID-19 pandemic hampered events, planned openings and daily meetings and social activities, headlines were not lacking in the Galt and Lodi regions.

Here’s a look at some of the biggest headlines covered by News-Sentinel in 2021.

Parachuting center sentenced to pay 40 million dollars in death

On March 17, a San Joaquin County judge ordered Lodi Parachute Center owner Bill Dause to pay $ 40 million to a Merced County family whose son was killed in a skydiving accident in 2016.

Los Banos resident Tyler Turner was celebrating his 18th birthday at the Acampo Skydiving Center and was killed in a fall when the cord pulled by his tandem partner failed to deploy a parachute.

There had been 20 deaths at the center since it opened in 1981, and a month after the decision, an Idaho woman was killed in a jump.

In May, News-Sentinel columnist Steve Mann reported that Michael David Winery sent a small amount of his grape juice to the International Space Station earlier in the year.

The juice was sent in February aboard the Northrop-Grumman NG-15 refueling mission, as part of an experiment to determine how it breaks down (or ferments) in space.

The Lodi cellar became the first in the world to send a sample to space for science.

Speaking of space, People Assisting Lodi Shelter opened their spacious new home at the end of June after seven years of planning.

The PALS Shelter, located at 5113 Sargent Road next to Sycamore Kennels, offers 13,000 square feet of space, nearly 20 times the size of its former Kettleman Lane home.

The new facility includes three dog enclosures, three cat viewing rooms, 14 dog parks, isolation rooms for cats and dogs, four kitchens and four laundry rooms.

A 1,350 square foot veterinary clinic is expected to be completed in 2022.

The Kennel Club organizes a dog show in Lodi

And speaking of dogs, some 1,200 dogs converged on the Lodi Grape Festival in August for an annual four-day show on the road to the Westminster Kennel Club.

The Golden Valley and San Joaquin Kennel Clubs moved their annual exhibit from the San Joaquin County Fairgrounds to Lodi this year, after their long-standing home was sold to make way for real estate development.

Dogs and handlers from across the country flocked to Lodi for the event, and both dog clubs hope to make the Grape Festival their home for years to come.

As festivals and popular gatherings returned to Lodi this summer after a year-long absence, the town saw its first Pride event attracting 1,200 people on June 5.

The Pride event was held at Highwater Brewing Company, featuring 25 vendors and around a dozen acts of entertainment.

The event was hosted by local teacher and A New Lodi member Kat Ellis, who wanted to celebrate community and unity, and said the idea stemmed from her own experiences as a community member. LGBTQ +.

Khan brought to justice for fraud

On September 28, Lodi City Councilor Shak Khan was formally indicted in San Joaquin County Superior Court on a litany of charges including gambling, money laundering and tax evasion.

Khan was arrested on October 28, 2020, just days before the November general election, in which he won a seat on Lodi city council.

The San Joaquin County Sheriff’s Office said Khan was one of three men who allegedly conducted illegal gambling at two businesses they own in Stockton, and that they were laundering the profits.

Khan faces 63 counts of felony, including 41 counts of money laundering totaling millions of dollars, four counts of misrepresenting income and five counts of possession of illegal slot machines.

He denied all the charges against him.

Galt opens her first teen center

After two years of research, the Galt Teen Center finally opened the doors of its permanent home at 550 C St. on October 21.

The building was once home to the Galt Historical Society, as well as the Galt Water District and the Veterans of Foreign Wars.

About 30 volunteers have signed up to supervise the teens at the center, which will be open two days a week until more volunteers are found to keep it open for an entire week.

Location of the chosen access center

After months of deliberation and protests from neighbors and surrounding businesses, Lodi City Council approved in October the creation of a homeless access center at 712 N. Sacramento St.

The center will provide homeless people with resources for employment, housing and other necessities that they may need to reintegrate into society.

Neighbors and businesses argued that the homeless were already being served on Sacramento Street by the Salvation Army and the Grace and Mercy Foundation, and the access center would only attract more plagues.

The council voted 3-1 to approve the location, with then-mayor Alan Nakanishi dissenting. Mark Chandler, who was vice-mayor at the time, recused himself due to a perceived conflict of interest.

Lodi survived one of the heaviest downpours in years on October 24, when 3.44 inches of rain fell for 24 hours.

The heavy and constant rains caused the back-up of the city’s stormwater drainage system, and streets across the city were completely submerged in water.

Water also seeped into the driveways of houses along Crescent Avenue, and all of the Lodi Basin parks were turned into lakes due to the precipitation.

The small 450 square foot units that make up the Harmony Homes project were installed at the corner of Lodi Avenue and Washington Street in November.

The units will each house one or two homeless people as they work to get back on their feet and reintegrate into society.

Several local nonprofits and businesses celebrated milestones in 2020.

The Lodi Community Concert Association celebrated its 75th anniversary in September, while Sanborn Chevrolet reached the milestone of the half-century in July.

Lodi Winegrape Association also celebrated its 30th anniversary in September.

Several departments in Lodi and Galt welcomed new leaders in 2021.

The Lodi Fire Department has appointed longtime resident and former Stockton Fire Marshal Ken Johnson as their new chief. and the Galt Police Department promoted Lt. Brian Kalinowski – who has been in the town for 13 years – to chief there.

Johnson and Kalinowski replaced Gene Stoddart and Tod Sockman, respectively, who both retired earlier this year.

The city of Lodi hired Christina Jaromay as the new director of parks, recreation and cultural services over the summer. Jaromay has spent the past 11 years in the State of California Parks and Recreation Department.

The city also appointed Akiliah Manuel Mills as the new director of the Lodi Public Library last fall.

And after just over a year in Lodi, City Clerk Jennifer Cusmir announced she would be leaving for West Sacramento in January.

Cusmir was hired to replace Jennifer Ferraiolo, who retired in December 2019.
