When workers complete the $7.5 million refurbishment of the expanded concert hall, the students at Brooklyn High School in the South will soon become one of the best school auditoriums in the city.
A drama educator said that the renovation of John Dewey High School will revive what was once known as the best performance space in South Brooklyn.
John Dewey High School (John Dewey High School) opened in 1969, when the progressive high school opened in Gravesend (Gravesend). In the early days, this school had advanced teaching methods and was repeatedly mentioned in the national high school rankings in Newsweek and U.S. News and World Report.
But by the early 2010s, schools began to decline.
The dropout rate is increasing and exam results are low. The Bloomberg government almost closed the school seven years ago.
Treyger said that district councillor Mark Treyger and school leaders worked hard to keep John Dewey alive and vowed to turn the school around.
Treyger said the school has exited the most difficult era led by the principal Connie Hamilton. Connie Hamilton took the helm in 2015, but many of its facilities (including the 900-seat The auditorium) is still outdated.
To help modernize the school, Hamilton and her team began working with local politicians and former educators a few years ago to brainstorm improvements to infrastructure. The first task is to renovate the school’s cooking kitchen and auditorium.
After refurbishment, John Dewey’s theater will receive an air-conditioning system, an improved stage, seats, lighting, dressing rooms, sound insulation cushions, and space for sound control, stage design, and music.
The theater will also comply with ADA standards and will receive the latest audio equipment that can transmit sound directly to hearing aids, thereby helping people with hearing disabilities.
Steinweiss, who once provided Treyger with suggestions for improvement, said that the new auditorium will not only become a performance venue, but also an important educational asset.
Steinweis added that she hopes she can work in the auditorium like John Dewey.

The Jersey Symphony Orchestra stated that the new concert venue should be included in the waterfront development plan.
The orchestra added that if there is no new venue to replace the Gloucester Concert Hall in Fort Regent, its existence may be threatened.
In response to the Jersey Development Corporation's public consultation on redesigning the waterfront, the orchestra called for the establishment of a high-quality art and other public event venue, as the future of the fort is increasingly uncertain.
JSO President Nick Cabot took over the position earlier this year. He said that they had previously been told that Gloucester Hall would be closed at the end of 2022, but recent comments made people wonder if they could again They are open. He said that before acquiring a new concert venue, we will completely contend with it.
In the submitted documents, JSO stated that “losing a suitable venue has seriously threatened its survival” and called for “a multifunctional concert hall to cater to symphony orchestras, choirs, bands, comedians and various types of music. People. It can hold 1,500 to 2,500' theater performances.
Point out that the second largest regular venue is the Jersey Opera House, which can accommodate 620 people.
The orchestra said that other art facilities (including galleries) can sit next to the concert hall, which enriches the island’s economy and provides islanders with opportunities to participate in art and enjoy high-quality performances and exhibitions.
"Exciting high-quality St Helier waterfront development project will attract the best performers and artists to the island, including international music festivals and art exhibitions. Art in the UK is the main source of income, and its income exceeds that of agriculture. Or mining industry.
The document submitted said: "The development of the waterfront in Belfast and Cardiff has completely changed the economies of those cities."
Mr. Cabot said that without a new venue, he is very concerned about the future of the existing form of the orchestra.
Last year, due to health and safety considerations, the Gloucester Music Hall was closed, forcing JSO to move its spring concerts to the St. Michael’s school gymnasium in the spring to perform in front of a limited audience, which is not feasible. In the long run.
``We have visited all possible places on the island and studied it in detail.
``At most, we can put the expanded chamber orchestra in school halls like Le Roque or Victoria College, but the symphony orchestra needs a venue like RJAHS, which is expensive and offers only three possibilities in the concert hall. Mr. Cabot said.
The orchestra seems to have some support from other organizations in the community.
A group composed of representatives from six other local theaters and music groups (including Jersey Green Room Club, Jersey Amateur Theater Club and Jersey Estedford) also submitted similar submissions to JDC, calling for the new Art facilities are incorporated into the renovated waterfront of Jersey.

Fort Worth-You must regret the Fort Worth Symphony. After being
Two weeks before the first classical concert in September, the orchestra scrambled to transfer its fall performance location to the Will Rogers Memorial Auditorium. This hall with 2,800 seats, with a wide stage and relatively low ceiling, is as evocative as a shoe box.
However, the good news is coming. Starting in March, organizations can stream and record performances in the Bass Performance Hall. A live concert with up to 100 spectators is expected to be held in April. However, currently, FWSO is still held in the Will Rogers Auditorium.
Principal guest conductor Robert Spano is also the music director of the Atlanta Symphony Orchestra. He led the chamber orchestra to perform FWSO at the concert on Friday night, with about 450 spectators present. The show was booked for two pieces based on strings alone, centering on Prokofiev's second violin concerto.
Except for the more discordant parts of Celestial Blue by American composer Jennifer Higdon, most of these works use traditional harmony and structure.
. Higdon is one of the most frequent musical performers, partly because her music is easy to listen to.
, Is a full orchestral work composed by Higdon in 1999 to commemorate the death of her brother Andrew Blue Higdon (Andrew Blue Higdon).
Contains lush and passionate textures. "sky blue"
However, it is different when the pulsating note is repeatedly used, and the lines around the pulsating note begin to bloom and gradually disappear.
Higdon introduced this idea in the opening ceremony, after which the music became brighter and more vivid. High-pitched violin, fine-tuned cello, cello and double bass make it more convincing. The work ended in a peaceful atmosphere. Although they appear soft in the space, the string music is warm and firm.
Some soloists have the ability to attract your attention and never let up. American Korean and Ukrainian traditional violinist Stefan Jackiw (Stefan Jackiw) is one of the musicians.
From the dull melancholy at the beginning of the Prokofiev Concerto to the fiery explosion at the end, Jackief exudes an elegant aristocratic atmosphere, never rushing to say a word or exaggerating gestures. He has a strong and concentrated tone, but makes a harsher sound when needed. Jackiw also sent out an absolutely controlled acrobatic channel, clearly emitting each note in double and triple notes (even in the fast section), and spinning at a slow speed to produce the silkiest legato. The audience then stood up.
Spano played mainly with light movements and coordinated the orchestra well with Jackiw. The orchestra is separated from the rest of the orchestra by the transparent plastic film stretched between the frames, and the sound of wind and brass pipes is even less audible than strings.
After Prokofiev's depression, Dvorak's sunny serenade in E Major provided a refreshing change. Phrases sometimes require more expressive shapes and directions, although the ensemble brings a graceful feeling to folk dance.
Repeat Saturday at 1:30 and 7:30 pm at the Will Rogers Memorial Auditorium at 3401 W. Lancaster Ave. in Fort Worth and at 2 pm on Sunday. $25 to $99. 817-665-6000,

In some psychology circles, they describe the importance of the "resistance to anger" ratio to human psychology. Even in the best of times, we are full of anger, whether it is conscious or unconscious. However, as long as we can consistently bring happiness to ourselves, we can maintain a balance.
However, what we currently see in our country is the consequence of the ratio of collective comfort to anger, and this danger may not be unified.
People are very angry. The pandemic makes us feel fear and isolation. Politics and social media divide us and distrust. John Kreese returned to the San Fernando Valley to teach a group of impressed teenagers his strike priority karate brand. There are many things to be angry about.
However, under normal circumstances, we can deal with this public anger. Our anger will not go away, because we have a way to soothe ourselves, and then deal with colleagues, throw empty whiskey bottles at the referee, or, oh, I don’t know... rush into the Capitol.
But at present, where can we go to relax? Since March, most parts of the country have been closed, and even in those areas that are still open, the places where people rely on steaming have already been closed.
Think about the hard work of the past year. How many shows and dancing with the band have you missed. Or laugh live with your favorite comedian. Or take the kids to the movies, fill your face with Butterfinger Minis, and see what the recent quirk, Kevin Hart, has put in.
I know I feel bad. I like the live venue. Like most people, I always prepare the most advanced list:
Frank Turner. The Boulder Company, 2019.
Book of Mormon. New York, New York, 2011.
Dave Chapel. Denver Corporation, 2002.
Museum...well, I don't have one. I tend to keep pace with Homer in this respect: the best things in life never end with "enumeration". They end in "crazy" or "standard".
At present, although it used to be routine work, these experiences can never be satisfied. Contrary to the idea of hundreds of strangers squeezing into the theater, since the COVID rushed ashore, our sense of self-protection has dominated our every move.
It’s hard to imagine, but we
Do it again. We will laugh, dance, and plug our arteries with cinema butter. When that time comes, we will attack those experiences with a vigor that has never been seen since the roaring twenties.
But... we will need to make sure that when we are ready, there are still many places to go. We must keep concert halls, cinemas, and museums, which is a daunting task, given the losses caused by the pandemic to these industries.
Fortunately, Congress has a plan. In the 5,500 pages of the latest spending and stimulus bill, the government has allocated $15 billion in grants to help places of living survive the pandemic. But how does it work?
In order to receive funding, companies must engage in certain jobs. These companies can be for-profit organizations, non-profit organizations or government-owned. They can be companies, limited liability companies, partnerships, or sole proprietorships.
The new law divides eligible recipients into four categories. The first category contains subcategories.
This category also contains
On-site venue. For this purpose, live performances include concerts, comedy performances, dramatic works or other activities of performing artists. Let's break down two sub-categories...
To meet this definition, the business must have three characteristics.
1. It must charge a surcharge through ticket sales or front door entrance fee.
2. The remuneration of performers must be based on a percentage of sales, a guarantee (written or standard contract) or other mutually beneficial formal agreement, and
3. Within the scope of on-site activities, underwriting costs or ticket sales, production expenses or production reimbursements, non-profit educational activities or activities, beverages, and food sales, no less than 70% of the business income or commodities generated.
In addition, "on-site venue operators or promoters, theater producers or on-site performing arts organizations and operators" include companies that sell tickets to the public, and the event is conducted in the form of a live concert no less than 60 days before the event date on average Performances by performing artists, comedy performances, dramatic works or other activities.
Once again, to qualify for the competition, a certain percentage of fees must be paid for the performers of these live events, based on the percentage of sales, a guarantee (written or standard contract) or other reciprocal formal agreement.
The relevant museum is a "museum" as defined in Article 273 of the "Museums and Library Services Act" (20 USC 9172). I don't know what this means, but if you are reading this book and have a vested interest in this definition, you might do it. However, it does not include any museums organized for profit.
This category includes businesses that own or operate at least one public place that pays for film screenings. Simply put, it is a cinema.
Finally, "talent representatives" are eligible for funding. This includes agents or managers who perform the following three actions:
1. No less than 70% of the business representing or managing artists and entertainers;
2. Books or representing musicians, comedians, actors or similar performing artists mainly in venues or live events at festivals; and
3. On behalf of musicians, comedians, actors or similar artists, the amount paid is based on the number of tickets sold or similar benchmarks.
Once it is determined that the company is a live operator or promoter, a theater producer or a live performing arts organization operator (again collectively referred to as a "live operator"), a related museum operator, movie theater operator or talent representative, the company must meet the following seven requirements: Requirements:
1. It must have been fully operational on February 29, 2020;
2. Total income during 1 period
The second quarter of 2020 is less than 75% of the same period in 2019;
3. From the grant date:
4. The enterprise cannot have any of the following characteristics: it cannot be publicly traded, or it cannot receive more than 10% of its income from federal funds during 2019. Similarly, the business cannot be owned or controlled by an entity with any of the above characteristics.
5. The business cannot have more than two of the following characteristics:
6. No stripe club, and
7. In the end, the company cannot obtain the "Salary Protection Program" loan-the first round or the new second round-
Next, there are requirements for the type
Participate in business.
For on-site venue operators, the venue in which the company promotes, produces, manages or holds events (for talent representatives, it is a venue for artists to perform) must have the following characteristics:
The cinema must have:
The museum must have:
After the enterprise meets all the relevant requirements above, it is eligible to receive the grant. It should not be difficult to require companies to prove that the economic uncertainty caused by COVID-19 made the grant necessary. The initial grant is usually equal to the smaller of three amounts:
1. 45% of total business revenue in 2019,
2. If the business started after January 1, 2019, the amount is equal to the product of 6 multiplied by the total average monthly income of the business for each month of operation in 2019, or
3. US$10 million.
Grants will be prioritized: in the first 14 days available, the grants will flow to businesses whose revenues are at least 90% less than their revenues during the period from April 1, 2020 to December 31, 2020. During the same period in 2019 get on. In the next 14 days, priority will be given to those businesses that have lost at least 70% of their revenue in comparison between the two periods.
For this reason, the accrual basis will be used to determine income, and any amount received under the CARES Act (ie, grants allowed by the Act) will not be counted as income. It seems that companies must be able to determine that the loss of revenue is attributable to COVID-19, which is not a big obstacle to overcome. Finally, seasonal businesses can adjust traditional revenue calculations.
Generally, every eligible company (even if it is associated with other companies) is also eligible for its own grant. However, none of the five corporate entities in any "associated group" can receive grants. For museums, the maximum grant of any museum operator is $10 million, regardless of the number of museums in operation.
If, starting from April 1, 2021, the business revenue in the most recent calendar quarter is at least 70% less than the revenue in the same quarter in 2019, supplementary grants can also be used. The grant will account for 50% of revenue in the same quarter of 2019. Initial grant, but between the initial grant and supplementary grant, the total amount received cannot exceed US$10 million.
The grant must be used for expenses between March 1, 2020 and December 31, 2021 (for the initial grant, or as late as June 30, 2022 for the supplementary grant). If it is not used up by the relevant deadline, the funds must be returned within one year from the date of grant. Therefore, for companies that borrowed this month, any money that was not spent before December 31, 2021 needs to be returned in January 2022. Unused supplementary grants must be repaid within 18 months from the date of payment.
The grant must be used for certain expenditures. Eligible expenditures include salary costs, mortgage interest, rent and utilities (to assume obligations that existed before February 15, 2020), and employee protection fees as defined in the salary protection plan. In addition, the funds can be used to pay for expenses to independent contractors (the annual compensation paid to any one service provider must not exceed $100,000), or for maintenance costs, administrative costs, state and local taxes, operating leases, insurance premiums, Advertising, production transportation and certain capital expenditures. Funds cannot be used to purchase real estate, repay loans generated after February 15, 2020, invest or reuse funds, or donate to political parties.
As with all grants of this amount, companies will need to retain documents that prove eligibility and use of funds. The eligibility and use of funds can be audited, and legal actions can be taken if fraud is discovered.
However, what is not clear at the time of writing is the most important information: when can the grant be used? After all, as mentioned above, after prioritizing grants, companies will want to join the ranks as soon as possible.
Finally, the latest stimulus bill clearly states that: 1) the receipt of the grant is not taxable; on the contrary, the grant represents tax-free income, and 2) any expenses paid with the grant can be fully deducted.
Soon, our country’s concert halls, theaters and museums will reopen, and people will flock to them, eager to enjoy the long-lost fun. It cannot happen soon, because only when we re-recognize the carrot-top comedy style can the revival of this great country really begin.

Kathy Sanford, a registered nurse from the Cormanche County Health Department, prepared the dose of the COVID-19 vaccine during a recent vaccination campaign at the Great Plains Stadium. Health officials are asking the City of Lawton to provide temporary assistance during the vaccination process, and the City Council will consider this request at today's meeting.
The City Council will consider:
It is proposed to lease the National Guard Armory in Elmer Thomas Park to the Lawton Community Theater.
Designate city employees to assist in the COVID-19 vaccination plan coordinated by the local health department.
Revise the city’s 2020-2021 budget to reflect an increase in revenue and an increase of $2.35 million in expenditure.
Formulate council policies to manage the interaction between city government staff and council members.
When the City Council met today, the proposal to rent the National Guard Armory in Elmer Thomas Park to the Lawton Community Theatre and provide assistance to City employees to help the health department The proposal for the COVID-19 vaccine plan will be the top agenda.
The meeting will begin at 2 pm in the Lawton City Hall Auditorium, 9th and C, Southwest. This is the first regular meeting in 2021, although board members have already held two meetings at special meetings this year, including the swearing-in ceremony on Monday. Wards 6, 7 and 8 councillors.
In today's discussion, the Lawton Community Theater Management Committee made a proposal to lease, occupy and maintain the National Guard Armory on the north side of Elmer Thomas Park as its new facility. The approval of the council is the first step of the LCT plan to organize, draft the architectural design and raise funds to convert the armory into use.
The City of Lawton has had an armory since 2015, when Oklahoma released buildings after extensive remedial measures, including the removal of lead paint and asbestos. The city sold the land to Oklahoma in 1953 for the construction of the National Guard Armory. From 1954 to 2011, the 158th Field Artillery Battalion was the location of the battalion. Since 2007, the camp has been included in the National Register of Historic Places.
Since 1966, LCT has been housed in the John Denney Playhouse in Northwest Bell. The theater has a total of 185 seats, with changing rooms, scene shops, clothing stores and storage rooms. However, LCT officials said the building faced challenges due to its insufficient scale and its location in the floodplain, which caused the water to flood several times.
LCT officials hope to have a larger position to expand the range of programs to include traditional theater performances and what they call sound children’s programs. They said that they also talked with other Lawton-Fort Sill art advocates, "and jointly envisioned an art gallery that would house the LCT and provide space for large-scale community theater events, youth field trips, and regional theater courses. "
Officials hope to use the armory for this purpose, and if the council approves the idea, LCT will develop a construction plan and raise funds for modification. Then, its officials will meet with city officials to draw up the details of the 50-year lease of the building. According to the letter of intent submitted by LCT managing director Chance Harmon to the city, LCT will have five years to realize its plan.
Council members will also consider a request from Brandie Combs, Regional Director of Oklahoma Department of Health, District 5 (including Comanche County) to help the state's current COVID-19 vaccine program, including in Comanche Comanche County at the county fair.
Comb noted the challenges faced by the program and has asked the City of Lawton to provide temporary assistance, which may include designating a "City Employee Selection Group" to help register and arrange appointments for vaccinated residents. Other assistance may come from areas such as answering phone calls and responding to e-mails. This assistance "will provide direct benefits to citizens who need assistance in arranging labor-related COVID-19 vaccination."
Council members will also consider revising the city’s 2020-2021 budget, increasing its revenue forecast by US$11.8 million, and allocating US$2.347 million to various departments for personnel services, materials, supplies, and other services and charges.
The change is a budget proposed by several city managers for the current fiscal year, which was set as a standby budget when the council approved it in the spring of 2020. Then, the income situation was not clear, and the municipal staff suggested setting a budget to comply with state regulations, while realizing that it would be adjusted as income increased.
That has already happened. Although the initial revenue was affected by the COVID-19 pandemic and its impact on business activities that generate business taxes and other revenues for the city, economic growth and federal funds designated to Lawton through the CARES Act increased revenue. Today’s adjustments will add $1,425,407 in special funds (funds for specific purposes) in New York City, $433,604 in corporate funds (income from water, sewer and garbage), and $488,286 in general funds.
The council will also consider approving a new policy that sets the formal standards for interaction between council members and municipal personnel. This policy is an extension of the “except for the purpose of inquiry” stipulated in the city charter. Administrative transactions between the council and city government staff must go through the city manager. These regulations apply to all employees except the four employees hired and fired by the city council: city managers, city clerks, city lawyers, and city judges.
Among other things, the policy also stipulates that non-professional behavior, gestures, or language during interactions are prohibited and should be reported; election officials should not publicly criticize employees’ personal performance; any employee should not be Nominations, elections, or failures of the mayor or city councilor may work without support or opposition. City managers will invest in suspected employee violations of the policy; if a member of the board of directors is found to have been violated, the board of directors may take disciplinary action against the person.
In other matters, the council will consider:
• Approval of the construction plan for the traffic lights on Cache Road, Northwest 50th Street, McKee Enterprises. McKee is developing real estate at 4800 Cache Road (the former car dealership) and said that traffic lights are essential to making the commercial real estate viable. The City Hall approved the conceptual design of the light in July and instructed the developer to formulate a development plan to align the lights on the commercial property on the south side of Cache Road with Northwest 50 Street on the north side.
• Received a temporary right of way donation of 2,654.99 square feet from Republic Paperboard, which is essential for road upgrades. The city is planning on Neal Boulevard and Ard Street in the West Lawton Industrial Park. The city will use capital improvement program funds to upgrade roads.
