“It’s always a little like going on a spectacular vacation — people say ‘where’s your favorite place?’ You almost can’t pick, because each one was so unique, so filled with different experiences. “For me, the special thing is the sense that Cabrillo has become a destination for people wanting to explore the creative process. The biggest highlight is that sense of shared creativity.”. Alsop wasn’t always a fan of new music ballet slippers by essie. The conductor, who began her musical studies at age 3 — her parents were both professional musicians, and Leonard Bernstein was one of her early mentors — recalls a moment when she called it “garbage.”..
“I hated it,” she says. “I remember my parents were rehearsing Beethoven’s ‘Grosse Fuge.’ I was maybe 12 or 13, and I came stomping downstairs thinking it was a contemporary work. My father said ‘this is Beethoven,’ and I thought ‘you can’t pull that wool over my eyes!’ When I looked at the score, I couldn’t believe it.”. A turning point came when Alsop discovered Bartok.

In addition to her work in Baltimore and Sao Paulo, she’s now director of the Graduate Conducting Program at the Peabody Institute. She’s passionate about mentoring young artists, particularly women conductors. “It’s a big commitment for me,” she says. “There are some incredibly talented women being appointed to great positions now. I’m starting to see a little bit of a sea change there, and I’m very proud of that.”..
The city’s Parks, Recreation and Neighborhood Services department just installed a temporary wood stage over the old fountain ballet slippers by essie. It’s nothing elaborate, but it provides a solid platform for events like lunchtime ukulele jams, Thursday night’s Salsa Party or The Commons’ eclectic show on Saturday. “The Commons’ upcoming event is a great example of the type of programming PRNS staff has coordinated to provide a vibrant, cultural and enriching environment at St. James Park,” said Brian Clampitt, the city’s marketing and event coordinator. The stage, he added, creates a focal point for cultural celebrations, live performances and other activities throughout the week..
And lest anyone wonder why my historic preservation hackles aren’t up about this supposed desecration of the fountain, it’s important to note a few things: The stage is temporary and while St. James Park is historic, the fountain itself isn’t. It was installed in 1990 — planned as one of twin fountains — and designed to mimic one from the Victorian era ballet slippers by essie. With a circle of metal fish at its base, it was once a beautiful sight. At least when it was working. But it hasn’t functioned in years, and, lately, it’s been more often used as a trash can and bathroom by people in the park..
