A Soulful City Girl

Meet Ali McGuirk

Before Annie Lennox of the Eurythmics was famous, she used to wait tables in New York City. Imagine the thrill of being served Spaghetti Bolognese by someone who would soon become an international rock star.

Although the game of fame has changed drastically over the decades, one thing remains the same; you never know what plethora of talent your waiter or barista may be dishing out when their shift is over.

A Far Cry - an Orchestra with a Difference

Young Musicians Changing Things

A new approach to orchestral music has emerged in the Boston area with A Far Cry, a group of lively performers with an innovative style. Instead of the usual organization conducted by a baton-wielding figure on a podium, these musicians play standing in a semi-circle (except for cellos, who are seated), with members of the different sections taking turns leading. Orchestra members also serve as the announcers.

Don’t Mess With Boston

“Free Speech Rally”

On Saturday, August 19, the last thing I had time to do was to go to the Boston Common to fight the ridiculous and never-ending battle against racism, hate, and white supremacy. I am sure that 40,000 of my co-conspirators felt the same way.
