The Supreme Court could use an oboist

Thursday, April 29th, 2010

The Supreme Court could use an oboist

I love this article from the Los Angeles Times, so I’m reposting it in its’ entirety.  Enjoy…

Judge Diane P. Wood plays the oboe. What better quality can there be in a potential nominee to the Supreme Court?

By Meghan DaumApril 29, 2010

There are many prisms through which to view Supreme Court nominees. We can look at how they hire their nannies. We can take certain remarks (like “wise Latina”) out of context and paint the nominee as a mystical narcissist. We can elevate questions like “Who has put pubic hair on my Coke?” to matters of national debate.

In a pinch, we can look at a nominee’s rulings and legal writings. Let’s not get carried away, though.

But only one thing matters when it comes to Diane P. Wood, the U.S. 7th Circuit Court of Appeals judge and University of Chicago law professor who is believed to be among the president’s top picks to replace outgoing Justice John Paul Stevens. It’s a trait more reflective of her character than any childhood experience or religious conviction. It might even be more important than her stance on abortion.

Wood is an oboist.

This is no minor detail. The oboe isn’t just an instrument; it’s a way of life. Wood plays the oboe (and its bulbous cousin, the English horn) in two orchestras, the Chicago Bar Assn. Symphony and the North Shore Chamber Orchestra in Evanston, Ill. Presumably these gigs don’t demand the concentration and practice time of the Chicago Symphony, or even of a woodwind ensemble composed entirely of members of the American Board of Thoracic Surgery, but they’re pretty darn impressive. Playing the oboe means living your life entirely at the mercy of tiny wooden double reeds that crack at inopportune moments (weirder and more awful yet, you’re supposed to make them yourself as though you were a 19th century artisan). It also means blowing so hard into them that you risk a brain aneurysm every time you try to hit a high D. It also means you’re a huge nerd.

I know all this because I was an oboist myself. And I use “was” loosely. Although it’s been nearly 20 years since I bought a spit rag at Sam Ash or prayed to make it through the last movement of the Mozart Oboe Concerto, once an oboist, always an oboist.

And speaking for myself and so many others in the oboe community, I don’t think it’s an overstatement to suggest that even if Wood had no judicial experience at all, even if she’d never even gone to law school — heck, even if she were a fifth-grader squawking out “Ode to Joy” on a plastic Bundy — she’d still probably be more qualified for the Supreme Court bench than anyone else in the pool. Why? Because oboists may vary in talent, discipline, ethnicity, gender and taste in unfashionable clothes, but we all have one thing in common: We’re just about the most judgmental people on the face of the Earth. Ergo, one of us should sit on the highest court in the nation.

Where does our judgmentalism come from? The same place as everyone’s: insecurity, self-loathing, anger at parents (which oboists have in high doses because most of us had parents who forced us to play the oboe). We unleash it on our fellow musicians, few of whom have to deal with ornery, unreliable double reeds and therefore “don’t know how good they have it.” We unleash it on nonmusicians who confuse the oboe with the big, gangly bassoon. We unleash it on bassoon players for undermining our sense of sanctimony due to the fact that the bassoon is arguably even more difficult than the oboe.

The root of our belief that we are the arbiters of all things, however, is the fact that the oboe sounds the A that tunes the first violin that in turn tunes the whole orchestra. There is great power in this, and also great responsibility, a responsibility not unlike the one that comes with deciding the law of the land. Granted, this tuning process is not a result of the oboe having intrinsically good pitch but, rather, because it’s so hard to get an oboe in tune that the rest of the group basically just has to go along with whatever the oboist’s idea of an A is that day.

But that’s a negligible point. Oboists may not always be right, but we’re still the deciders. And that’s why if Wood ends up appearing before the Senate Judiciary Committee, I hope they’ll cut to the chase and just ask her to play the Mozart Oboe Concerto. Or better yet, an A.

*PLAYS SET IN BARS PLACED IN BARS*

Thursday, April 29th, 2010


DESCRIPTION:

PLAYS SET IN BARS PLACED IN BARS is a festival of plays, which, as the name states, are set in bars, inns, pubs, taverns, blind-pigs, honky-tonks, lounges, taps, or other dispensaries of beer, wine, or spirits. Plays will be performed June 14th – June 27th in various bars in Providence, RI.  Although in support of Perishable Theatre, this is an independent project.   It is not produced by any theater, bar, or institution.

ACTORS:

Casting is scheduled for Saturday, May 8 at 1:00 p.m at Perishable Theater, 2nd Floor. We are scheduling auditions/meetings in half hour blocks from 1:00 p.m. to 4:00 p.m. Please e-mail us your time-block preference (e.g. “2:30 p.m. – 3:00 p.m.”).

OTHERS:

If you are interested in directing or helping spread the word about the festival, please e-mail us at barplays@gmail.com or stop by the casting meeting from 1:00 p.m. to 4:00 p.m.

IMPORTANT SCHEDULE NOTE:

This festival will contain a variety of plays ranging from ten-minutes to full-length.  Several of the plays will be performed on days that are not otherwise the busiest for the participating (and very kind) bars.  The upshot of this is that you may be able to get involved, even if you have a tight schedule or apparent conflicts.  So while you may not be able to participate in a full-length piece with a large cast and four performances due to your busy life, you may be able to play with the two person ten-minute show that gets scheduled for a Monday and a Tuesday.  And that’s pretty cool.

MONEY:

You will not get any.  The hat will be passed at the end of every performance.  All money collected that is beyond the cost of putting on this festival will be donated to Perishable Theatre, which is where many of those involved have enjoyed support and hospitality. What you will get is a chance to shamelessly plug any upcoming projects you may working on.

Invitation to filmmakers:
We are pleased to announce a call to independent documentary filmmakers who would like to participate in a week long seminar and retreat in southern Vermont.
 
Kopkind at Treefrog

Event Info

THE FIFTH ANNUAL KOPKIND/CID FILMMAKERS RETREAT SEMINARS
Sunday August 1st -August 8th

Tree Frog Farm, Guilford Vermont

The Center for Independent Documentary (CID) and the Kopkind Center are sponsoring this week-long retreat limited to nine filmmakers along with special invited guests at Treefrog Farm in Guilford Vermont  from August 1st (Sunday is a travel day) to Sunday, August 8th.  

Each year we pick a theme that threads through our morning seminar sessions and that feeds our viewing and discussions in the evening. This year our theme is: YOU!

Yes, this is all about YOU! At a time when you’ll hear everyone say that everything is possible and nothing is working, and you feel overwhelmed by everything you have to learn and know to make your film, this is the week to finally take the time to assess what filmmaking is to you and what it will take to make you succeed on your terms.

Join us to explore “YOU”, get the tools you need to succeed,  and recharge your creative battery with some of Kopkind/CID’s special brand of “radical relaxation: great food, great films and deep discussions on the art, politics and the plain fun of filmmaking.

You can read more about the camp experience in a recent article that appeared in a previous NAMAC newsletter.

Rhode Islander wins Poetry Out Loud national competition!

Wednesday, April 28th, 2010

Last evening I received a phone call from a friend at the National Endowment for the Arts.  “Your Rhode Island state champion won!,”  she said.  I knew immediately what she meant.

Amber Johnson, our Rhode Island champion in our state’s Poetry Out Loud competition, won the national championship.

What is Poetry Out Loud?  Here’s the description from our press release of a month or so ago:

Poetry Out Loud is a program sponsored nationally by the National Endowment for the Arts, a federal agency, and The Poetry Foundation in Chicago. Organized along the lines of the national spelling bee, Poetry Out Loud promotes competitions at the high school level throughout the country, with local winners going on to state finals, and from there to the national championship competition.

As the day goes on we’ll have more to say about this.  For now, congratulations, Amber!

Pawtucket values its arts high school!

Tuesday, April 27th, 2010

Here’s what it says in the Projo this morning, in an article speaking to the findings of an audit by the Pawtucket School Department looking at ways they can save money:
Walsh students with Tolman classes? The audit says $731,000 could be saved yearly if students at Jacqueline M. Walsh School for the Performing and Visual Arts took their basic subjects at Tolman High School, allowing elimination of 6.5 core-subject teachers at Walsh while maintaining Walsh’s specialized arts curriculum. The School Department rejects the idea, saying Walsh is a high-performing school and a source of pride for the city. It would also mean eliminating a Walsh principal with a strong arts background.
Yeah, Walsh!
