Boston Globe beautiful journalism by Dan Shaughnessy to match such a brilliant game! Celtics beat bucks epic 4th quarter

Game 2 was the stuff of legends. Celts beat the Bucks 116:108. The teams are tied 2:2 heading into game 5 at the Garden tomorrow May 11, 7pm. Let’s Go Celtics!

Just Sayin’- Dan Shaughnessy had this article down before midnight. Impressive feat and fun read aloud with your family. It’s one to save!

Shaughnessy, Dan. “It Felt As If They Were Playing for Playoff Lives”. Boston Globe. May 10, 2022. Front page of the sports section in the print edition. Front page on line with updated headline: “A fourth quarter for the ages, a legendary dunk from Al Horford, and the Celtics-Bucks series is all even“.

Surf and Celtics- Boston Globe coverage

“I didn’t make out what he said,” humble Horford acknowledged after the game, “but the way he looked at me didn’t sit well with me. That got me going. At that point, something switched with me.”

In the already famous fourth, Horford postered Giannis with a dunk to tie the game, 80-80. Big Al drew a well-deserved technical for his antics, but nobody cared. Momentum had shifted and the Celtics were running downhill to victory.

Notes about the 🎶 | Read More about Cape Ann Symphony incredible set list for May 15th concert

This Sunday, May 15, 2pm Cape Ann Symphony at the Manchester Essex RMHS, 36 Lincoln St. Manchester, MA. tickets available here

Beethoven Coriolan Overture.

Composed to open the play written in 1804 by Joseph von Collin. The music summarizes the plot in which Roman General Gaius Marcius Coriolanus was expelled from Rome, went over to Rome’s enemy Volscian and led their army back to conquer Rome. His mother pleaded with him to not invade and he relented. Thus he became a traitor to both the Romans and the Volscians. Destroyed by himself, he fell on his sword.

Mendelssohn Violin Concerto.

It took six years riddled with self doubt for Mendelssohn to compose what has become one of the most popular violin concertos of all time. His last concerto, it is filled with new compositional ideas for its time and is considered a must learn concerto for all violin soloists.

Adrian Anantawan.

A graduate of Yale, Harvard, the Curtis Institute of Music and a student of Itzhak Perlman and Pinchas Zukerman, he is an extraordinary and accomplished violinist and musician. We are thrilled to have Adrian Anantawan join us this Sunday to play Mendelssohn’s Violin Concerto. He may not have a right hand, but he delighted an audience two weeks ago at Rockport’s Shalin Liu Performance Center as he demonstrated that it’s what you hear, not what you see, that counts.

Click here to see and hear Adrian Anantawan play the theme from Schindler’s list.

Tchaikovsky Symphony No. 5.

He declared to his brother that he had come to the conclusion that the fifth Symphony was a failure. He even “feared his imagination had dried up, that he had nothing more to express in music.”

Today the fifth is one of the most popular symphonic works, full of drama and emotion with a gorgeous French horn solo and a thrilling ending which will raise folks out of their seats.

Traditionally, about 30% of attendees wait until the last week prior to a concert to order tickets and other folks simply come on the day of, and hope there will be seats. So far, we are about 25% ahead of expected sales for the upcoming concert this Sunday.

Just to be certain, why not buy your tickets now for the upcoming concert this Sunday, May 15, 2pm?

You don’t want to miss this concert program with our very special violin soloist!

Happy Mother’s Day!

Mothers are not the nameless, faceless stereotypes who appear once a year on a greeting card with their virtues set to prose, but women who have been dealt a hand for life and play each card one at a time the best way they know how. No mother is all good or all bad, all laughing or all serious, all loving or all angry. Ambivalence rushes through their veins.

Memories of being in the natural world inspire the color and gesture of the paintings.  Gardens, overgrown fields, open space, the sea and wind are all a source from which the paintings evolve. Color and light fascinate me, how one color placed next to another comes alive, how that color then has the profound ability to evoke a mood or a place. While my process is intuitive, the presence of the landscape is constant. Yet, there is uncertainty of place and of resolution. I find this ambiguity most exciting.

Maria Malatesta

About the artist:

Maria Malatesta lives on Cape Ann which contributes to her artistic sensibility. Her work has been included in numerous shows on the North Shore and Boston area. Solo shows include Montserrat College of Art, Chameleon Gallery in Newburyport, Pagus Gallery in Pennsylvania and Porter Mill Gallery in Beverly.

Make Way for Wild turkeys – by Long Beach #GloucesterMA

Four wild turkeys paraded through the neighborhood.

Last March I saw 18 cross Thatcher Road, between Good Harbor Beach and Long Beach Dairy Maid, just past Witham.

The 2022 Boston Marathon celebrates the 50th anniversary of women runners’ official inclusion in the race. Eight entered and finished the 1972 race:

  • Nina Kuscsik, New York (3:10:26)
  • Elaine Pedersen, California (3:20:25)
  • Kathrine Switzer, New York (3:29:51)
  • Pat Barrett, New Jersey (3:40:29)
  • Sara Mae Berman, Massachusetts (3:48:30)
  • Valerie Rogosheske, Wirginia (4:29:32)
  • Ginny Collins, Massachusetts (4:48:32)
  • Frances Morrison, Texas (5:07:00)

Six years prior, Bobbi Gibb from Massachusetts ran the Boston Marathon in 3:21:40 (April 19, 1966), the top female athlete, faster than 2/3 of the field. She was 23 years old. She won again in 1967 and 1968. Gibb is a long time fine artist and Cape Ann resident. It’s a thrill to see this recognition!

Looking back – Popular Cultural context 1972

Mary Tyler Moore – Also 50 year anniversary of season 3, episode 1 (aired September 6, 1972 ) at the office Mary discusses her salary with Murray, then Lou. Mary makes less than her predecessor despite doing better (excerpt: 3:47)

Classic trio scene: Mary talks about a job promotion with Phyllis and Rhoda

“who’s in charge here?” season 3, ep. 3 Sept 1972 written by Martin Cohan

“Oh, don’t look at me. I was one of those cute little girls who always got dolls to play with…”

Phyllis (Cloris Leachman 46 yrs. at the time)

“Phyllis: When she gets her life together, will she need batteries?”

Rhoda

“It’s exactly what I do now.”

Mary

Bobbi’s milestone prompts personal stories. My mother in law shared one about winning a college competitive event as part of a two women team circa 1950 and feeling certain to repeat the feat only to have the contest reconfigured and split into men and women categories the following years to avoid that happening again.

Shorebirds and tracks were absent from the beach. Seagulls and robins were in the streets thanks to a night of heavy rains flooding out earthworms.

Gloucester Oscars | CODA afterglow Front Page Gloucester Daily Times

A joyous read for Gloucester and movie fans everywhere, Gloucester Daily Times front page serves as a beacon to the triple Oscar winning film CODA with great reporting by Ethan Forman and Gail McCarthy and photographs by Paul Bilodeau.

REPORTER Ethan Forman

Ethan Forman’s piece features multiple local interviews, businesses and locales.

“…CODA did not turn to special effects to tell the story on the water. Instead, it turned Capt. Paul Vitale’s 50 foot fishing vessel Angela + Rose into a working movie set in August and September of 2019.”

Ethan Forman. Gloucester Daily Times, March 30, 2022 | Read the complete article here

“They are definitely the little film that could,” said Meg Jarrett, of Gloucester, the liaison for Cape Ann for the Massachusetts Film Office, who spoke of the importance of CODA’s success, saying it will make it easier to film other productions on Cape Ann.”

REPORTER GAIL MCCARTHY

“This is Our Moment”: Deaf Community Celebrates 3 Oscar Wins for ‘CODA’

Gail McCarthy continues her excellent CODA chronicling

“Gloucester is at the center of an independent film that sent not a ripple, but a tidal wave throughout the Deaf community with its message being heard at the White House and around the world.

The cinematic pebble that started that ripple was the film “CODA,” which stands for Child of Deaf Adult(s), but coda is a term often linked more to the music world than the Deaf community.

That began to change Sunday night…”
