first_imgMay 9, 2016A very special night in the Arcosanti cafe, celebrating Arizona Vivaldi Festival # 18.The Arizona Vivaldi Festival was founded by Michel Sarda at Arcosanti in October 1998 to honor Paolo Soleri.  Sarda’s “Art Renaissance” was its producer again this year, and this time, the eighteenth time at Arcosanti, Vivaldi’s work was played by the terrific Phoenix String Quartet, and the emotion of the music was translated into Flamenco by the internationally acclaimed flamenco artists and musicians of Bernadette Gaxiola’s “Zona Flamenca.” [photos by Rob Jameson, text by Jeff Stein] This night was very special in another way, too: unlike all other dance forms, in which dancers move to the music, in Flamenco, the dancers lead and the musicians try to keep up. It all worked out wonderfully, and people in the packed house had the experience of their lives. A close-to-capacity audience arrived for a terrific Spanish-style dinner in the café and after dinner, 45 additional guests(!) filed in for the performance. With the startlingly beautiful flamenco was Spanish guitar, and voice, and Vivaldi with strings.Then: has it ever happened before that a wheelchair-bound person was featured in a dance performance? Yes, once or twice. Was it ever more beautifully done than in the Café at Arcosanti this past Saturday night? No, probably not ever. It was a transcendent moment, when a young girl in a wheelchair took part in the Flamenco, spinning among the dancers, her own flowing gown reminding everyone of how angels move.Congratulations to all involved in producing what everyone who was at Arcosanti will remember for a long, long time.last_img read more

first_img Categories: Hauck News Disaster and Emergency Contingency Fund now open to Midland, Isabella countiesState Rep. Roger Hauck today announced the state’s Disaster and Emergency Contingency Fund is now available to provide financial assistance to local communities after severe flooding caused extensive damages on June 22-23.“When our community got hit hard by the flooding last month, local first responders and relief agencies stepped up to ensure the health and safety of residents, and I commend them for their impressive response,” said Hauck, of Union Township. “The disaster continues to take a toll, however, stretching the budgets of local cities, villages, townships and counties that experienced unexpected expenses while responding to the flooding. I applaud the governor for making money from the state’s Disaster and Emergency Contingency Fund available to help reimburse communities for some costs they have incurred.”Eligible local governments affected by the flooding in Bay, Isabella, Gladwin and Midland counties can apply for assistance grants for up to $100,000 or 10 percent of the previous year’s operating budget, whichever is less.The Disaster and Emergency Contingency Fund is used when communities demonstrate an exhaustion of local resources during a disaster or emergency. The money can be applied toward the immediate prevention, response and recovery of a disaster or emergency, as well as cover overtime for public employees, contracts used during the response, shelter supplies, gasoline used during the response and repair of public buildings and infrastructure.Under extraordinary circumstances, the governor may authorize reimbursement from the fund to provide state assistance to counties and municipalities when federal assistance is not available.The Michigan State Police, Emergency Management and Homeland Security Division will administer the grant program and assist local governments applying for the funds.### 25Jul Rep.
