Re: “A letter to our readers

We remember those days in the early 1970s, when, with our babies in arms, neighbors Mary Anna and Dot Taylor talked on the corner of Westminster and Thayer, about your nascent plans for a neighborhood newspaper. They were exciting days, and it is a joy to see the perfect passing of the torch. Long live City ! Long live XXI !

Re: “Classical review: RPO performs 'Tchaikovsky 5'

I enjoyed Daniel Kushner's review of the RPO's March 22 concert. My central response was the difficulty I had in finding the reviews on line or anyplace. I trust that I am missing something very simple, that everyone else read and responded to the concert and Kushner's review, Where do we go to find this important work which is central to the dialog within the Rochester music community. We old guys need a leg up. Thanks.

Re: “Classical review: RPO performs 'The Music of Swan Lake'

I greatly appreciate that City published a review of the Thursday program of the R.P.O.. A thoughtful, critical dialog between musicians and listeners is an important facet of our communities artistic life. When I spoke recently with one of the editors of the D&C to ask why they no longer published regular reviews of R.P.O., yet still did for Broadway theater performances, he said that not enough people clicked on classical reviews on line so they eliminated them.. "Counting clicks" is a sad and incomplete method for making decisions that weaken the cultural fabric of our community. Bravo City !
