REVIEW: EXQUISITELY FOR ELLA Wooster community treated to a night of jazz

As 7:30 p.m. approached I was hurrying into McGaw Chapel with friends. Alumni, students, and community members were all anticipating this concert, the main event of homecoming weekendís Friday night. A last-minute first-year was acquiring his forgotten baritone. Several members of the Cleveland Jazz Orchestra were warming up with the Wooster Symphony. I spotted Paul Ferguson, a trombonist who had a concert with the jazz ensemble last fall, and he commiserated with me over his free jazz exploration titled ìFlesh,” which takes its theme from a Bach chorale. McGaw filled quickly. The Wooster community is always ready to acknowledge and appreciate Jeff Lindbergís newest musical offering, and Friday was no exception.

Krstof is wise but dodges the question

Iíll admit it ó while attending Nicholas Kristofís speech last week in McGaw, I was moved. The fact that a man of his success cared so much for other people, to me, seemed rare. It was clear that he has the very best intentions and legitimately believes that he is helping people through purchasing for them their ìfreedom,” building them schools resembling those in the West.

He is a skilled and brilliant man, that is certainly apparent. However, for the second time that day, I watched as a student asked him whether or not he considered himself to be a feminist. As he fumbled through ìums” and ìuhhs,” for the second time that day, Nicky Kristof, a talented journalist and a fine man, expressed rather clumsily that he was reluctant to claim his allegiance with the feminist movement because it had ìfailed.” Continue reading Krstof is wise but dodges the question
