Mystical Music of the Middle East – Concert for Unity

I’m thrilled to help bring the Yuval Ron Ensemble back to Portland next week. The Yuval Ron Ensemble uses sacred music from the three Abrahamic faiths to make musical bridges between people of different cultures, to help prepare hearts to hear a message of tolerance and peace. The music is electrifying, and the multi-ethnic and multi-religious ensemble makes an artistic statement for Peace and Unity.

An interview of Yuval from last spring is on the KBOO website at www.kboo.fm/portlandyiddishhour  ...

Two half-baked movies hit the screens

Categories:

The Runaways
Director: Floria Sigismondi
With: Dakota Fanning, Kristen Stewart, Michael Shannon

I have been a Joan Jett/Runaways fan for more than 30 years, so I looked forward to this movie with some trepidation.  Would it be a kick-ass rock & roll movie, or would it be a predictable rock morality play with young people corrupted by the life?
The answer, alas, is more of the latter and less of the former.  Part of the problem is the director, who directs music videos, not a genre known for character and plot development.  The story is mostly taken from a memoir by Cherie Currie (Fanning) and is told from her point of view.

Imagine a high school where art, music and culture are natural components of education rather than stand alone subjects. Where community is unified through celebration of arts and artistic expression. A school where parents and students openly communicate with teachers because every voice is valued. Imagine teenage sons and daughters coming home from school filled with pride and self-confidence, showcasing their day’s accomplishments and looking forward to the next day. Imagine their excitement when working in an internship lead by an artist or businessperson they admire. Imagine talking about life after graduation as a conversation with limitless possibilities.
