Arts and Cultural News Headlines

Spring semester was off to a pretty normal start at Rolling Meadows High School. The school, in a northwest suburb of Chicago, was gearing up for the goodbye rituals of every spring semester: senior prom, end-of-year exams and graduation.

Caitlyn Walsh, the school's music teacher, was looking forward to the big choir concert and the spring musical. "From the fine arts scene we have a lot of end-of-year activities that are very cherished," she says.

The playwright Terrence McNally gave theater some of its great moments. Theater critic Howard Shapiro will hail McNally's versatility this week on In a Broadway Minute, Friday (4/3) at 8 am and Saturday (4/4) at 10 am.

Bucky Pizzarelli, a tasteful sage of jazz guitar who spent the first phase of his career as a prolific session player and the last phase as a celebrated patriarch, died on Wednesday in Saddle River, N.J. Guitarist and singer John Pizzarelli, his oldest son and regular musical partner, said the cause was the coronavirus. He was 94.

When the subject of jazz comes up, the name Marsalis is soon sure to follow. Brothers Branford, Wynton, Delfeayo and Jason have all reached international fame. But before they found success, their father Ellis was shaping his own career and lighting the way for others to follow.

The Philadelphia Orchestra's March 12 emotional performance to an empty Verizon Hall at Philadelphia's Kimmel Center was one of the first indications of the transformation that was about to take place in the music world, with artists and ensembles turning to online options to share their music and provide some comfort to audiences quarantined or self-isolating at home.
