‘Tis the season

THURSDAY, SEPT. 18 & SUNDAY SEPT. 21

by Jonathan Griffith
It seems Halloween starts earlier every year. The back-to-school aisles in local superstores have started filling up with candy, and costume shops have already begun taking over vacant storefronts.

‘Violin-ism’ without mercy

Yevgeny Kutik opens Lansing Symphony season with arch-romantic concerto

by Lawrence Cosentino
You don´t need to unpack a violinist’s backstory to appreciate a tone that runs from caramel to glacial melt to bat’s blood, as the music demands. Russian-born Yevgeny Kutik, 28, will probably lean toward the caramel when he plays Max Bruch’s arch-romantic violin concerto to start the Lansing Symphony’s 85th season Friday.

Original superstar

Michigan woman brings Bernhardt musical to East Lansing

by Allan I. Ross
If television had been around when Sarah Bernhardt was alive, she undoubtedly would have had an envelope-pushing reality show and been a fixture on “TMZ.” The 19th century French actress/artist sent tongues wagging worldwide with her risqué artistic endeavors and unconcealed sexual exploits, paving the way for Elizabeth Taylor, Madonna and Miley Cyrus to inherit her mantle of Most Scandalous Woman Alive. Not bad for a self-trained courtesan’s daughter who died before the 1920s could even get roaring.

Super festival

The whole ball of beeswax about the 4th annual Art Attack!

by Jonathan Griffith
In the winter of 1960, the comics world saw its first super team-up when DC’s mightiest heroes — including Aquaman, Green Lantern and Wonder Woman — formed the first iteration of the Justice League to battle a giant space echinoderm. So when economic downturn and loss of regional awareness threatened Lansing’s historic REO Town district, a similar team-up of exceptional entities united with a common goal. And thus the Art Attack! festival was formed, comprising local artists, musicians and food vendors to battle the threat of redevelopment and to raise awareness of a community rich in culture and creativity.
