Houston Mayor Sylvester Turner gives update on power outages and weather impact
"With me now is houston mayor sylvester turner previously served nearly thirty years as a texas state representative. He is in a command center right now. Monitoring situation in his city mayor. Thank you for taking a little time with us. And i don't want to start first with things aren't houston. Are they getting better. Chris in the last twenty four hours. Things have improved yesterday. At this time we had about one point. Three million customers without power Today as i talked to you that number is under thirty thousand in houston region yesterday The the water pressure was extremely low In fact hospitals were having a hard time getting but they needed Just to run a bear chillers to stay warm and other necessities today. The water pressure in the city of houston has increased And hospitals in much better shape at the same time people many of the people able to flush their kamoze improvement with still not wear. We want it to be but yesterday the pressure was below what we call twenty. Ps today as we speak that what a precious right around thirty so being things improving but again we still have some tremendous needs at. They're just zero in on the water aspect of this has been one of the more harrowing parts of it and a kind of a kind of cascade effect. We're going out water treatment facilities. Just explain to me what that means that it does. It mean pressure. Now you can you can. People can run water in their homes. That firefighters have water that hospitals have it is. That is that where things are correct. Hospitals now have watered. That can run the chillers. Keep the patients that doctors and medical staff Warm in in in in cool weather so to speak People able to take showers. Peabody plus two komo but because the water pressure dropped below the regulatory requirement twenty. Psi you automatically have to give ball water. Notices so you have over seven hundred jurisdictions around the state of texas a chieftain san antonio austin example in many others where there are bald notice requirements and that will continue to be the case probably through the weekend at the earliest that ball. What notice could probably be lifted on sunday. But i think for houston probably be monday. Which means if people don't have power because just also ball your water about two minutes but what happens if you don't have power then people are going to rely a great deal on bought a water and that's why starting today We started distributing water to those persons for example. Who don't have the means to go into a grocery store and purchase tomorrow for example will be masked water distribution site in the city of houston where we will probably give out tomorrow anywhere between seven to nine hundred thousand bottles of water primarily for people for families who already on the modulus. Chris and they just can't afford to go in and purchase two and three and four cases of water. And we'll do that Tomorrow saturday sunday until this ball. Water notice has been listed. That's really that's very helpful in understanding where things are. Let me let me also ask what your interfaces have been. With spill state and federal government i know females on the on on the ground. Have you been talking with aircraft that run the the grid with folks from fina. The federal government and with governor abbot. What are those interactions been like. Well i've talked several times with the ceo. Behead of eric hot And n n what he will say to you. Is that the system that we have in the state of texas. Our texas korea is designed for the summer heat. It is not necessarily designed for winter storms and then as relates to this. What happened in this. In the last four or five days that was simply not enough adequate generation supply available to meet the demand and the supply that they had reserved so to speak when with shop when some of the facilities came all flying of been made things even worse and let me quickly speak to those who are trying to say. oh the wind turbine frozen. You shouldn't be looking at renewables as a false false aligned. Being put four because the plants that came off line while natural gas plants coal fired. Plant Nuclear plants came offline. You wind turbine strobes. So it was a combination but when it comes to win and sola that's still only counts for a fraction of the energy that's produced in the state of texas. The rally at reality is that the state was. Ill prepared The other thing that i would add when i was in the legislature but twenty three of my twenty seven years i said on the on the committee that oversees our electric utility industry back in twenty eleven fouled a bill saying to the public utility commission that we need to exert greater oversight over urquhot to prevent blackouts of every kind that we have are experiencing in texas for four for these last four days batmobile. Chris was never given a hearing. And so for anybody. Who's just trying to place the blame on irc That's not enough as part of the story but it's not the total story. Archive is an agency of the state of texas is the leadership of that overseas or cat and what happened in this week with the failure. Not just urquhot but of the statewide leadership state representative state senators. Who didn't do enough to make the necessary. Structural changes prevent what took place this week but mccurry and as a result of that hundreds of thousands of texans paid a horrible price and they are number of stony that we live in the city of my city that anada that not allowed to date to go into next week. Some of them died from carbon monoxide. Trying to keep themselves

"This was not the news I was expecting to share with you. This is not how I was expecting the beginning of the show to start today as you just heard. Great actor Cicely Tyson died yesterday. She was 96. I spoke to her just a few days ago. You might have heard us talk on Tuesday. It was the day her memoir came out. It's called just as I am. I was saying to someone like Yesterday. I think one of the senior producers of the show does like how profoundly moved I was by Cicely Tyson. By her perspective, her presence, especially at 96. Also like her gratitude. You know, I complain about stuff all the time and to hear her go at the end of the interview. The last thing she said to me was Tom. I am so grateful For this moment. In time we talked about her early days, We talked about her career defining roles. We talked about movies like the Autobiography of Jane Pittman or and Sounder. We talked about her role in the TV series roots We talked about Everything you know, most recently she was and how to get away with murder. Miss Tyson's co star on that Syriza Viola Davis tweeted this last night and I wanted to read it for you quote. I'm devastated. My heart is just broken. I loved you so much. You were everything to me. You made me feel loved and seen and valued in a world where there is still a cloak of invisibility. Us dark chocolate girls. You gave me permission to dream. Cicely Tyson's accolades are too many to list here. Emmys, Golden Globes, A Peabody, a Tony and honorary Oscar mult multiple in the Deep Image awards. I mean, you know a million things. Had a clear vision. Mission to bring complex and nuanced black characters to the screen and on stage and tow uplift others who had dreams just like hers. When I got to speak to Cicely Tyson again just a few days ago. That dedication was crystal clear. I am so grateful. We got to bring you that conversation. So much of it is stuck with me and Especially the part where she talked about getting the presidential Medal of Freedom from President Barack Obama in 2016. That moment is a moment that will live with me forever forever. And someone pointed out to me not too long ago. That I was the last person and his administration to receive it. Okay on that, he said. He made that statement. And then, he said And she's cool, gorgeous one than I need, huh? That's pretty good. If that gets into your presidential medal, you know that's a good sign. That's right. Well, you know, maybe this is a good way to close it off your 96 years old now and, you know, I think a lot of people want to know about the secret to a long life. And in the book you talk about how celery juice and morning pull ups are part of a key role. But what what other advice would you give people? I think that when, uh You get up in the morning and you're fortunate enough to see daylight. You're blessed on when I get up, and I see daylight. I first thank God I go into my meditation. Another change, and that gives me the faith. The car I thank God first. Very sick needs a face and a trust to go on for another day. And I think that's the most important thing that one have Detective Thank God just seeing another day. I never thought I would like to be 96 years old. My God, Every member of my family is gone. I am so surviving member of my family, and I was not expected to be here past three months.

There Will Never Be Another Maradona
"So add. We've seen this incredible outpouring of support for diego maradona's since he passed away last week to say goodbye to donna. Filing past the coffin and coming out the side crying country declared three days of national mourning. There were massive crowds showing up to see his body at the national palace in windows holidays by maybe about a mile from the of maradonna. And i'm not sure if people here in the us really understand how massive figure diego maradona is argentina. To explain that to people. I've been trying to explain it this week. Two americans and the thing that i landed on. Was you know you hear a lot of the mythology about the american dream right. But are essentially the argentine dream. There is not social mobility for people who are the visions which is kind of argentina equivalent. Savannah's there is not the social mobility for those people to rise and improve their lives except for one thing and that's football and diego who was born in visa theory which is very poor neighborhood. He is the proof of that. My father works such a lot to supporters. Eight of us children that made us. It made us very strong. It made everyone strong. Not only did he. Rise from the bottom rung of society abject poverty but he rose by fifteen. He was given an apartment by the club. He was blamed for argentinos juniors. He was supporting his whole. Family's whole family were living in an apartment. Thank god the one who could reach the highs until he became the most famous washington person probably apart from the pope. He austin on the world stage in a way that almost nobody ever could three. He's adult way he's beauties is something that was immortal. Seems like a lot of the mythology ising around. Maradonna comes from this idea of lp bay. Ed can you explain what that phrase means and its importance in. Argentinian culture. At the bay. Essentially it's it's the talented kid argentines in classical stories grow up playing on portrayals which are small kind of dog pitches and that's kind of a natural home of the p. bay which is this talented youngster. Often you know when i was in argentina i did some coaching with kids. And if you watch them play competitor like watching english kids play anguish. Kids play english football. You know it's been rough and they play in a very kind of permanent fashion the kids. They're all trying to dribble ten people there all falling over there all diving around in the peabody is essential oftentimes number ten. It's the guy around which the entire team operates. You essentially put several plus outlet who just defensively minded to make up for the fact that you've got this one super talented guy who's going to create everything and obviously every team that diego maradona was in was built around him. Put him in the middle. Give him the ball and just let something great happen quite often it
The Women Who Revolutionized Fashion with Petra Slinkard
"You are here to discuss the peabody essex. Museum latest exhibition the women who revolutionized fashion two hundred and fifty years of design as the title suggests. This is not by any means a small topic. Can you tell us about the exhibit and a little bit about the inspiration behind its creation. Sure absolutely So this exhibition actually is a partnership that we did our we're doing i should say With the consortium and then hand in the netherlands and it is an extension of a show. They put on called them. Vitol's strong women and fashion and their show then travelled to belgium and we are essentially kind of the third venue. But it's. It's an interesting collaboration because it's not an identical repaying of their show so they're installation on which was was beautiful and spanned multiple rooms in multiple galleries and our show is going to be designed a little bit differently And part of reason that we were very excited to partner with consortium is that they're so accommodating on really great partners they allowed us to borrow sixty objects from their election which was huge for us because of course the european collection Phenomenal works that represent into the big european designers for which doesn't have that much representation and but of course being in the united states. We really wanted to draw out of some additional stories that pertain to designers the twentieth century. But also american designers For whom there wasn't as much representation in their show the we've been able to augment With twenty five works from our own collection some of which are recent acquisitions and We borrowed a few pieces from the mfa in boston. We brought to pieces from the chicago history museum and then we're working with To private collectors. So there are a hundred eight mannequins in the show. It's a really big show and it does run the gamut. We say two hundred and fifty years. It's not of course the comprehensive look but it does span that timeframe and so why an exhibition dedicated to i mean. This probably goes without saying what inspired you to do. An exhibition dedicated just to women designers. Well that's a great question It actually takes me back to a time in chicago. Because i was working at the post. Your museum as the custom curators there and of course as a social history museum we were definitely thinking about a twenty twenty s. A hallmark year for the anniversary of the ratification of the nineteenth amendment. And so even then this back in two thousand seventeen By partner just kapoor. And i were already beginning to catacomb the collection and look to see what we might do in honor of women.

Tech's curator the peabody essex museum. Is i kind of put that idea dressed. Rest until i was scrolling through instagram. One evening saw me ho. Hey who's curator at the museum post image of stack of books and i noticed all the names on the books. And they were all women designers. She said something pithy like coming soon. And you know a strong women fashion. And so i sent her a direct message and i said hey. Tell me more what is going on. What are you doing when he planning And she told me about the show. And i said oh. That's really interesting and said you'll have you ever worked with the us institution before she said. No we haven't What would you be interested. And she said yes so. I went and saw the expedition. And i came back and i spoke with our colleagues here in just so happened that we had a are scheduled for twenty twenty and We really been thinking at that point about doing anything dedicated to him in and so it all fell into place We were slated to open in may but of course because of covid that did not happen. but again because we have great partners they were very flexible. And now we're opening number twenty first.

It actually just opened in its on view until march twenty twenty one yes and alas we will not be able to make it to salem massachussetts in person this year especially right now so what better way to celebrate this exhibition them by being joined by his co. curator patriot. Welcome to the show. He had show welcome to dress. It's such a pleasure to have you here today thank you. I'm excited to be with you. So you are here to discuss the peabody essex. Museum latest exhibition the women who revolutionized fashion two hundred and fifty years of design as the title suggests. This is not by any means a small topic. Can you tell us about the exhibit and a little bit about the inspiration behind its creation. Sure absolutely So this exhibition actually is a partnership that we did our we're doing i should say With the consortium and then hand in the netherlands and it is an extension of a show. They put on called them. Vitol's strong women and fashion and their show then travelled to belgium and we are essentially kind of the third venue. But it's. It's an interesting collaboration because it's not an identical repaying of their show so they're installation on which was was beautiful and spanned multiple rooms in multiple galleries and our show is going to be designed a little bit differently And part of reason that we were very excited to partner with consortium is that they're so accommodating on really great partners they allowed us to borrow sixty objects from their election which was huge for us because of course the european collection Phenomenal works that represent into the big european designers for which doesn't have that much representation and but of course being in the united states. We really wanted to draw out of some additional stories that pertain to designers the twentieth century. But also american designers For whom there wasn't as much representation in their show the we've been able to augment With twenty five works from our own collection some of which are recent acquisitions and We borrowed a few pieces from the mfa in boston. We brought to pieces from the chicago history museum and then we're working with To private collectors. So there are a hundred eight mannequins in the show. It's a really big show and it does run the gamut. We say two hundred and fifty years. It's not of course the comprehensive look but it does span that timeframe and so why an exhibition dedicated to i mean. This probably goes without saying what inspired you to do. An exhibition dedicated just to women designers. Well that's a great question It actually takes me back to a time in chicago. Because i was working at the post. Your museum as the custom curators there and of course as a social history museum we were definitely thinking about a twenty twenty s. A hallmark year for the anniversary of the ratification of the nineteenth amendment. And so even then this back in two thousand seventeen By partner just kapoor. And i were already beginning to catacomb the collection and look to see what we might do in honor of women. Because of museum itself was looking to do a year of women based programming and exhibitions. My life changed. Because i. I moved tuesday when massachusetts became the vashon. Tech's curator the peabody essex museum. Is i kind of put that idea dressed. Rest until i was scrolling through instagram. One evening saw me ho. Hey who's curator at the museum post image of stack of books and i noticed all the names on the books. And they were all women designers. She said something pithy like coming soon. And you know a strong women fashion.

"But making sure. I make a point to prioritize what i care about what love doing. I think that's a great perspective. Do you have any tricks for staying organized with all of these different activities that you are balancing right now. Honestly google drive drive. Great much lifesaver. you know. That's still something. I'm figuring out. I i am serious about google drive. It's it's really. It really help is helpful with collaboration. End with keeping myself organized keeping different projects organized and being able to work with others in this projects when needed that's kind of a very practical organisational thing as far as more about Time balancing and time management organization. I will say that is something. I'm really trying to figure out right now because my life has changed a lot in the last couple of months. settling into a schedule I have a good friend who always helps me. Make my schedules to make sure that i scheduled time. Time to eat and sleep I recommend finding a friend to help you do that. Because sometimes we tend to forget to allow times for those things So i worked with her to to make a kind of ten of a schedule and now trying to follow that assess. What's working about it. And what's not. My general theory is far as organization. Time management is make a plan but also be patient with yourself and understand that your plan might not work and if it doesn't work then change it. Can you tell me a little more about how you started teaching and has evolved into for you. Sure so i started teaching knows pretty young assisting with group classes i grew up suzuki method kit and as i kind of grew that that method i started working with the younger group classes and assisting with those doing some private teaching in high school And when i came to peabody for the first couple of years. I didn't do much teaching but my third year in peabody i took a pedic pedagogy class and that kind of opened up some opportunities for me to start teaching more regularly in my fourth year at peabody i started teaching at chamber encounters music academy which is a school in pike's bill on does group classes and private lessons. I taught group classes for them for a couple years of violent students and After a year. So i kind of transitioned to teaching primarily private lessons which worked well for me it just based on my schedule and being able to have a little bit of flexibility there and i've been teaching private violin viola lessons.

How many things you do while you're in school for me. I kind of felt like after graduating. I was doing all of the same things without homework. So i felt like i had more time. Actually nice Now i'm in school. So i have homework again. But as i feel that the connections i made in school and a part time work that i was the freelancing is doing the chamber groups. I made a point to play with a lot of those continued into my life after graduation and have also continued into my life in new york outside of baltimore. So it's been an interesting process in that way. something. I think about a lot. How did you started with those things while you were in school. What were the first steps.

Apple TV Plus extending free trial subscriptions to February 2021
"Thinking of canceling your apple TV plus subscription before the free year ends. Well. How about a few more months? CNBC. Says Abbas extending the free trials into the new year. According to the report subscribers whose trial started last November December or January will be extended through February. This means that someone who bought an iphone on the first of November and activated Apple TV plus. On the same day, we'll have access to the service through the first of February when billing starts. As people paying for the streaming service, it sounds like they're getting free time as well. CNBC has apple saying that folks already spending the five bucks a month will receive credits through February as well. The extension is automatic and users don't have to ask for it. The report doesn't say so you got to wonder whether the extension has to do with the lack of second seasoned the streamers flagship shows. It seems likely that the return of the morning show for all mankind see and Dickinson were meant to keep people around once they had to pay. Without that incentive. Apple May of worried that some people would cancel their subscriptions. If cancellations were apple's concern. Front, they simply delaying that pain. And could be or it could be the second season's will slide the extended free window. We know that will happen with at least one of those shows. I'm more says the peabody award winning series Dickinson will be back in the stream on Friday the eighth of January twenty twenty. One.

Reflecting on RBG and Redefining Success
"Hey everyone we're back from. From the last time, you heard us well I. We want to acknowledge that we are recording this episode hours after receiving the News Supreme Court Justice Ruth. Bader GINSBURG has passed. So this is a couple of hours now. So we're we're past the shock and sadness, but we have to acknowledge it and he all her episode. We talked about how important the Supreme Court is in. This is another reason why we're we're excited to over by didn't Harris because how important the courts are and we have to watch out for say hypocrisy because my Ceuta Republican senators supple failed McConnell is already hours after she's best already promising to just bulldoze a Republican nominated. person. To the Supreme Court. Yeah, literally to add salt to the wound Brendan I. been feeling all the things we poured some rose. Am honor of her that we both shut some tears. It's it's it's a hard hard evening. Yes. We've shared some tears for doing a toast Rosa for BG. So I think many of us have have dreaded this day for a long time we knew it was coming. Not only because it obviously mark the passing of champion of women's rights but also because of what it can mean for the future of our country but it's you know we're we're trying to use this as fuel to keep doubling down on the things that we're doing. So wanted to share a quick thing that we're working on. We're co hosting a phone banking session October third at Twelve PM PS virtual, of course, check out the Lincoln the notes how you can sign up it is a bilingual phone banks. We're especially looking for Spanish speakers and it. It's really easy if you haven't had any experience phone banking, the point is that it's really an easy way to get involved in. You'll get all the instruction during the during the actual phone banking. So Cool I love that the. NFL is leading this. I love. It does really taking true to what she said in the last episode like every week you commit to doing something more for this election and that's great. So thanks for leading that and Y'all sign up. So despite that sad news by that by the time you're hearing this it's been a few days and we've all hopefully had some time collectively grieving and continue her legacy but we do want to celebrate a lot of things as well. This is our first episode happening during lat next heritage months. So let's give them a racket to all of us from carshield. Cares to. Makes Heritage Month. So why don't we give that at? Yes actually one thing I was really thinking about recently I was thinking I wanted to give them a threat to being by cultural. To, Brennan as. To most of our our listeners. Reflecting on this and how much broader our perspective is because we're bicultural and I and I know I I remember growing up I used to think that being like eating was like something that was bad and I always wanted to be more Mexican and then I wanted to be more American I just never feeling like I fit in but now I really started to think about how that's really a strength because we can. Really look at kind of what values from our that upper upbringing do we want to carry with us and some of them are problematic and toxic shit. But then some of them are I think are great and same thing from some of the values American valley some of them are very toxic and some of them I think are great. It's a week to kind of see from the outside what we like in what we. Create our own values in redefines new identity I love that. Part of the secret to the success of this podcast is that can we talk about the beauty of our identity as imperfect as some view it like you're not Mexican enough and American now guess what we're both in Los Angeles. Awesome. Just keep. Being yourselves and then don't look at it as a negative to celebrate exactly who you are. And someone else who celebrates exactly who she is and who I think is a very perfect example of being bicultural is mighty. Ena Hosa. She is a dream guest for combating or were so excited to have her on this show. You. All probably know who she is but just as a reminder, she is the anchor and executive producer of the peabody award winning show Latina say as well as co host of in the thick media's political podcast. You know Hosa has in for millions about changing cultural and political landscape in America and abroad she's here to talk all about her new book once I was you which this week was listed as five hot books by the National Book Review Let's give them my. Talk About Latina power. So share that you got to hear this interview, what did you think Oh my God I am so jealous that you got to interview her I. Absolutely fucking Love This interview Madina Hosa I feel like she's doing exactly what she's supposed to be doing because as she's she's meant to be a journalist actually sounds so soothing and powerful in also relatable at all at the same time, she honestly is goals on goals and You know one part of the interview that's I mean so many parts stood out but one part of this sit out because it referenced something that has coming has been coming up with a lot of our listeners and are followers. There's a part where she talks about her she. She leaves I think a very high paying job, and then her dad expresses some concern. You know she says, well, how Gomez, how are you going to make money and then she says bobby like I don't know. But she you know she felt like she wasn't making her happy and I think there was a you remember the quote or would dress she says I was a success but I didn't feel proud which was so powerful because. Yeah like you want to be proud of your work, and maybe that's the way she learned to define success versus traditional notions of success, which is the Nice House a nice car and the you know the Nice 401k package all those things, right? Right. Right. So really think rethinking about like what actually makes you happy and what actually success mean to you there is a one thing that. She said that kind of goes along with with that we're the drivers of what society is going to look like in the future we can determine what matters how we go goes the market, and for me that was thinking about how like as Latinos especially, during something we can think about like how much more powerful we are than we even were like you know I don't know five ten. Powerful. that. We can actually redefine not only would this what looks like for us but what are what values are important for this country? So we we have power and I think growing up I didn't most of us I definitely didn't feel very powerful I felt like I was living in a system that was created by white people and led by white people when I was just trying to fit in. So just really thinking about how. People were really finding our voice more than ever before and. I know hoses book is a great example about the power of voice and how we really right now as demographics change I really stepping into that power and we can define our own our own business success in our own values in this country.

"And. I think for to really be successful if this for me personally, if I have a project I have to do I can't look at it as work and maybe I'm speaking mainly to practicing because if I'm GonNa Coach Percussion ensembles in, do my other obligations until six. PM. Then, after I eat dinner and I, have to go back to the school practice at seven pm I can't look at that as oh my gosh this is the worst thing ever I wanna go home and watch Netflix Sir just relax hurt I have to go okay I get to spend an hour inside this piece that Allah hundred Vignon wrote that's going to be really awesome. I'm super lucky that I get to do that and I understand this music to the point where I can work on it you know and. Create something presentable an interesting that I'm really trying to view things in that Lens because otherwise. It would just look like I'm working all day every day that could feel exhausting I. think that's probably a more productive perspective and. Helps you stay positive about the amount of hours that you're spending on the instrument every day. So however, your goals and priorities changed since he started school at peabody and graduated. When, I started at peabody. Very much in the camp of. I WANNA, be in a bigger pond, a slightly more competitive pond and I. I wouldn't say the culture at peabody was competitive within. The studios are in Orchestra or whatever it was a very collaborative in uplifting environment But. I think the competition was with myself. How much better can I get? What can I absorb over the semester? will can I absorb over this year? That's GonNa make me a better collaborator, a better musician, a better person And so a lot of that was really focused on my own ability to play. Orchestral, repertoire to play. Solo Marimba. To Play Chamber, music. In now I think my focus has shifted and I'm certainly trying to still get better at those things, but there's only so many hours and I spend more time in front of students. And so I, think my focus now is, how can I be? The best possible teacher that I can be I'm right now I'm existing where I'm teaching students sixth grade through undergraduate. And so later, today I'll have a lesson with One of my Texas women's students in will work on a Keiko lobby. Solo. But yesterday I was teaching a sixth grader, how to play multiple bounce role. So how do I just cover that range in the best way part in what's things? Can I say for students to get to it faster and now is something that Professor Van Cise is really good at he's been teaching forever and so he just. He diagnosis problems so quickly and says, the two things you need to hear to be able to do the thing which is amazing. And so I'm trying to find that in I mean it's as simple as I'm working with students on a suit on four mallets and. If I say when they're playing. Some sort of alternated stroke or independent stroke instead of me talking about the Mallet I talk about how their pinkie rotates..

I wanted to touch base with you so. As you've probably in full pandemic mode. Have you been spending your time the the past few weeks? I have actually been working from home for about two months now at this point, so I feel very very fortunate that I still have a fulltime salary job that I can do from home. Depending on how long this continues, who knows if that will continue to be a sure thing? But for now I feel more fortunate than most in that I can keep working, so it's been an adjustment to working from home, and I work for as music school, so we have had to shift all of our classes online and just trying to negotiate how to get. Twenty children to all log into zoom at the same time for class, and how to communicate all of that to parents and. Just figuring all of that out, but I mean what's really amazing is seeing how resilient all of our young students have been with the technology. They're just so savvy and they feel very home with it, so that's been a really surprising thing to come out of all of this, but other than that. I'm also doing my work with ICARUS listen, and we have been trying to figure out how to shift our priorities to create opportunities in resources for people, and it's always been important for us to. Create a platform. That's a safe space for people to share, but that's been increasingly important now. Is We all kind of now? Gate this unchartered territory together? Yeah, I'm curious than because you have two different worlds. You have the very much impersonal world of what you do with the school, and then you have the very much virtual world of in in a sense of I care if you listen. And How's it been watching?

Let that also be a very human approach, a very human conversation. Thinking back on your time. What what are there any bits of advice that you would offer to current students, particularly music students, but anyone at peabody. The cultivation of the I think the acknowledgement. Of the fact that it is very very hard to make a living solely for music, but that by no means means that you have to stop doing so that you have to stop trying to. Do I think that you know cultivating a day job as a great part of that? Making sure that that can be something you enjoy. You can reach out to find a way to break into something that you might want to do that. You once you've acknowledged that you will most likely need supplemental income. If you're able to. Reach out to start to make that happen while you're in school than that increases the chances of you being able to do that when you're out of school, and even that might even give you the ability to perform even more because you don't have as much of the stress associated with you know if I don't make this audition. I won't be able to pay my bills that that's one of the things that contributed aside from me being just totally not ready for it, but that's one of the things that contributed to my audition. Anxiety is thinking well. If. I don't do this then. I have failed with no recourse well I. Mean I have recourse now because I can be patient with the development of my voice partially because I'm a base partially because I have a day job that is artistically fulfilling as well so that's just something that you know the acknowledgement of the likelihood of the traditional definition of failure. and. What one does with with that acknowledgement? Can Be what makes the difference and what happens after school?

Throughout my career, I've really never sort of sat back and waited for things to come to me for waited for new opportunities to come to me. I have sought them out. I have created them. I suppose in some ways I've been kind of entrepreneurial about that, and it's not something I think about I. Don't think of myself like that at all. But. You know if I think about the lunch and learn series for example that's very entrepreneurial, but I don't think of it that way I think it is a service. So I would tell Abra. To do the things she loves. Playful out. Be Good to people. Don't worry about how the future. HOW THE FUTURE UNFOLDS! and to really embrace. All the things in this life. All of that. What are some of the most inspiring things you've seen from colleagues or students in the past few months? I was really inspired by the student cafeteria concert March. I was sorry I couldn't be there. But I was so inspired by the. Again the the the the fact that a student really pushed for this to happen and that we that it was able to happen. And it was so there was so much passion in the playing of those students that night. And frankly for the singers to that were doing the dress rehearsal for the opera. It was so lovely to see those clips. I was so grateful for those people that. That video recorded those events because it was just lovely to see the outpouring of empathy for one another and the. And you know looking back now. It's been months, and those are some those of the last performances that had been peabody photos of the last performances that. The last kind of collaborative collective music making we've we've have and. I'm glad that that the students took advantage of that, and and really pressed for that I think that was absolutely the right thing to do, and I applaud them. I also have to say that I've been struck in the last couple of weeks. In particular by some of the heart fell out pouring in the jazz community for the loss of so many of their elders, their elder statesman their. Their idols there you know significant community members, and some of the words expressed about those musicians, and some of the stories about those musicians have been very touching to me to see. Also have been inspired by little clips of things. I've seen that have been very inventive. you know opera using electronics and. People who are? Who can't be together and collaboratively music make yet are continuing to do so. Here's a lot. There is a lot of creativity in this fields. and. I hope that we start to think about. These digital platforms as enabling that creativity, and not being a limiting factor. You know one of my colleagues. Keep saying. Stop kicking the box but get outside the box. Because I think what he's trying to get at is instead of just fighting against the limitations that we have. Get outside the box. Think about how to use the box for something more valuable, more creative. I love that. I.

"So in my mind, all of these things have just now risen to the four of what we're doing. We teach students in the twenty first century and a conservatory setting. And I think it's incumbent upon us as higher education leaders to acknowledge that that's what's going on in the field, and to make opportunities for students to press forward in those those areas in ways. We never did before. I I was I I I'm really struck by what you're saying by this and I wanna ask you feel like we were. The ship was headed there and it's kind of like. We just caught the wave to get to the shore earlier. In in regard to the technology piece, and thinking about how we're going to build our these skills, and do I think that's right and I I especially think so. You know even now. We've spent months staring into our computers months. That's how we've connected with people. I live alone and I have connected with friends. Family members colleagues across the world. Via Zoom for months. And, I've connected with very few other people. During that time. I think that by the time we get to the end of this pandemic whenever that is I wish I had a crystal ball, and and and you know in whatever capacity that is. I can't envision a world and which. Electronic distribution and video recording video distribution isn't ubiquitous. We we are here and we're spending all of our time here. This is going to change culture. This is going to change society. I wish I had bought zoom stock in late. February. I regret. That was not. But I do think that we are going to see you know significant movements in low latency. Internet connections high speed Internet. I hope and I pray that we start to see. Internet connectivity available for all at it's a right, and not a privilege in that we start to see greater access to computers and IPADS and other sorts of resources to ensure that people can connect. It if anything can come out of this, it's it's things like that that as we press forward from the pandemic I think you're going to be important, but yes I I can't imagine a world in which we go back completely. So I want to ask another question as you thinking about how things are moving online how people are interacting in these ideas around access to Internet for all and technology for for all one of the things I've noticed is that there's been a much more of an openness and an abundance of sharing online and sharing resources I've noticed you also established. A summer series at peabody. Could you talk a little bit about that? Yeah, so in March as all of our conservatory peers across the country were one by one shutting down. A colleague of mine and I. were. texting one day and decided that we wanted to try to get our colleagues together. For many many years. The economic leadership at most of the nation's schools of music schools. I'm sorry. Schools of music and conservatories Matt at the National Association of Schools of music annual meeting in November, but over the last ten years or so a number of significant institutions, including our peer, said, and and peabody have left that organization so as a result, we naturally come together anymore as a cohort, see one another talk about challenges or opportunities in the field in the ways we use to. And so this colleague of mine, and I decided to poor friends together, frankly the academic leadership at the nation's top conservatories and schools of music. To. Talk about what what was going on how we could support one another. Maybe lessons learned from one another. What's been what had been working? What had not been working? How were they supporting students? In terms of getting instruments in their hands as we, we left campus or other financial resources, those kinds of things it's become actually a very. Important group in my in my life. We still are meeting every other week on Monday afternoons. And you know topics have ranged from how to support faculty how to Support Students There's really nothing going on. That could be remotely considered collusion. I can't imagine anyone would ever ask about collusion when it comes to chamber music. We. We really truly are trying to share best practice. At some point in April, we were discussing the fact that our faculty all needed better training and To function. In the coming year, espe- in this remote environment. We all had an inkling at that point as we still do that, it will be challenging to have all students back on site. Some might not be able to return. Some might choose not to return, but that our faculty needed greater skills in remote education in synchronous asynchronous learning. And in how to just deal with Zoom Day law right. And so I sort of floated the idea to them that we host a lunch and learn series I. I said I would host it. Coordinate it. I asked my colleagues if they would help me identify topics that were most important to them or that they needed the most. And also helped me identify anyone within their communities who might be excellent resources, or who may be doing that skill very well. So. Topics such as how to teach ear training in a remote environment were how to teach keyboard specifically piano class. Or even just instructional design basics or recording arts basics. Were things that many of our conservatory colleagues were not able to provide to their faculties during this time. You may know that a great number of the music schools in this country and a great number of universities frankly have laid off a significant amount of staff this summer. Because of the uncertainties of tuition revenue for next year, and we at peabody have been very fortunate to have an incredible team and the academic technology instructional design area led by Joel Mont Homo. That have continued to work and continued to support our faculty in remarkable ways. So I knew I had that team that I could call on for support and I knew. We had zoom and I knew we could do webinars. That's really all I knew. When I agree to this I spent several weeks in May. Really coordinating the panels that would would be going on, and we set out to do nine sessions so essentially every Tuesday from the beginning of June until the end of July. we have subsequently even just in the last couple of days added a session. That will I think this one will be very exciting. It's three of Johns. Hopkins scientists UNACADEMIC leaders. and. They're the part of the team. That's really supporting us and helping US bring students back onto campus and a couple of months they will be speaking with a saying and answering questions regarding health and safety, and how to reopen a music school or a performing arts organization in this pandemic moment..

There's so much of a learning curve of just how to market myself and how to brand myself so that I can be successful on my own, and so that I can connect with other musicians. This is Max Q. PODCAST peabody's launch paddle office dedicated to demystifying what life is like after graduation. Every episode and sit down with the recent peabody.

"Way to learn how to be a professional field. Because of all those things you have to do, the time management is another. Thing now that at least for the people I used to. Because now all the classes are online. You know like when they're at peabody. Okay Yeah. My friends going to class are now I know to plus. You know or it's all over the place you know there are signs when you know you have to go to class, so you go right in its part part of your biological clock, because when you're there on meaning you just feel it whereas when your home or do us suddenly. I have class at two o'clock, but I'm just watching TV. You know so, how do you? made the responsible in regard to that and.

A to make sure I have that forty five travel from here to here. Or I know I can only work on my car from Harry Shearer I'm going to be to work. Those kinds of things so I think. It's a good lesson for them. So kind of what I'm hearing as we talk through this. Is that the the first? The first opportunity is real artistic exploration in terms of research and seeing what's out there. And you have in a sense new access to thanks if you're thoughtful about it. Yes I'll active.

In this interview Dr for she speaks with Dana Bella professor and chair of peabody's dance department. Dana thanks so much for being here today. Welcome to Max Q. Thank you. I appreciate it I'm. Happy to be part of this. You one of the first questions I have for everyone that I'm talking to right now is. have. You been spending your time the last few weeks. was that look like for you? A lot of it is I feel like a lot of? It's on the computer I, think I- monsoon. It feels like I'm on zoomed twenty four hours a day I mean I. Know that I'm not, but it does feel that way. I'm doing a lot of that a lot of planning or attempting to land sold twenty twenty. And then lots of family time making sure Greeks. Ending outside is I can. Sure. Another big question I I've been thinking about is. This. You may not have an answer for, but it's something I've i. think about right now. In the middle of this is as an artist what you see as. The role of an as the artists in the middle of a world crisis like this right now. I think third dance specifically. The dance community has been amazing like ever. Since classes, people started finding out that All these classes had to go online the community. Of like came together start offering all these online for free over the donation, which was amazing. and I think what they did. was they kind of gave everyone this? Get to be able to move rich I think at the moment. We weren't thinking that when it was happening I'm thinking we're thinking that we're going to be in. This place were sheltering place for so long and having to move into dilemmas away so i. I think it's I think one of the girls is a dance is to just give people the opportunity to and to feel these things in a different way giving there's a lot of sort of improv classes in creative dance classes that are happening where people can sort of deal with the frustration or the anxiety, or whatever it is release it through movements especially if they can't do it any other way or don't. Have you. Have you had any friends or colleagues or experiences? Yourself kind of starting these up where they've they've. been something maybe outside of an academic institution where you've seen these takeoff. Yes I have friend actually I had this friend actually know John Johnston's. He's a Houston based artists and he actually has been teaching. The Jask Lockheed is that's on Saturdays Huston, and from what I understand is the longest running close in Houston and it started in the seventies, and they have never missed it except for holidays, and so he felt was really really important that they continue it so mealy. Start talking on Saturdays. Glad he opened because now that it's online, he opened up to everyone on heat..

"Thought I would like. Somebody things I didn't really know existed need an out of peabody largely largely out but I did feel really inspired by what I was doing at school to print out especially through some jazz courses that I was taking here and that was really life changing because now let's mostly what I do is experimental music proposition. Jazz writing my own stuff Contemporary classical music. What about any setbacks? Do you feel like there has been any significant obstacles that you faced either during your time at school or afterwards and if so how did you get past those? I think that this career really demands that you know yourself really really well. And that's been a pretty big source of stress for me coming to terms with what I'm capable of when not capable of and which things I can change which I can't and that's changed throw my whole life. I'm sure but it's time management. That's really bad at that. Something could freelance. It's gotten better through much hard work. I can say that But also mental health stuff is definitely gotten in my way the last few months especially and I'm not sure how much of that is directly related having graduated been out in the world fully. And how much is that? It's kind of coincidental. But that's something I'm starting to learn. You can't just power through. You have to find some kind of way of gently addressing it like as soon as you start to notice a pattern and I've kind of thought points where I powered through enough that by the time it really gets to me. I can't have no defense against it and takes me weeks to feel like I recovered and I haven't really found it yet. There must be a way to become more conscious of those cycles in emotional health and and in finding ways to boost yourself before I can control to recognize it and then be able to address it sooner and to talk about it with people you trust as there anything in particular that surprises you about your life after graduation. Well I had kind of forgotten what it was like to have any sort of free time so we other than that. I think. Probably just what you'd expect in terms of person now in the real world. How do I knew that taxes are really hard worrying about taxes while you're in school before you have to pay them on that note?

"Helps you gain skills not only in your craft but also how to teach that craft as well again. You're in school to learn how to learn so you know ultimately to be able to teach yourself how to do something how. When I opened up the score does my experience at peabody studying with Mironov How is this going to you? Know How is my experience going to help enrich the experience from how Muhammad I going to approach this gorgeous? How am I going to prepare this or show this sound show this and and so now? I've got all these questions and not necessarily all the answers because as I mentioned a lot of that comes with experience but those kinds of questions are great so that I can help teach those things later on her. You know approach different issues on So I I think that's a along along limited way to answer your question but i. I think that each person's relationship with our mentors gonna be different always assumed the best and come with earning questions like some kind of two things one touch on. I don't know if there's anything burning that you would want to say to current students any advice or words of wisdom. It doesn't have to be. I think I mean there are things that I want that. I want to say that I should say gopher both adjust Strike that don't let your curiosity for music. End at the start and end of your lessons. Classes classes and ensemble rehearsals for me coming out of school understanding what it really means to be a professional musician What it really means to grasp performance practice style. Things like fat. It really comes down to Listening a lot reading literature about composers that interests you or About Music and trying to find your own way. I think it's really easy when you're at school to go with the flow to especially if you're in a program that's really busy doing a lot You know you're required to do all these chamber ensembles. All these large ensembles all these courses in classes seminars and these new initiative classes. You know you're you're now taught you need to think entrepreneurially you can't let that inhibits your love for the music and your desire to know more about it beyond music needs to also be a hobby outside of the class as outside instead of just you know this is my job therefore I do it at these times and that I turn off Don't get me wrong. I think it's really important to have a life. Goodness knows that I don't know how to really make that balance. It's really hard to work music and live there. I think I think I remember seeing a A Pie chart of you can pick to. Hopefully you can pick work in life and live music but you know you got to find some way to to have have a balanced sleep somewhere in sleep somewhere.
