Opera Preview: Nabucco by Giuseppe Verdi

Nabucco was Giuseppe Verdi’s first big operatic “hit”.

TELOS - The Arts and Community Identity

One of the main focuses of “The Arts and Community Identity” is on the rapidly changing perception of community. The arts are used as the lens through which we examine and discuss the economic, social, cultural, and political ramifications that a community experiences due to the presence or absence of artists and arts organizations. The course includes an historic component as we review the impact the arts have had during the last six decades; an economic component as we examine the ways in which the economies of various parts of the U.S. grow and shrink due to the business of film, music, art and theater. Moreover, a significant local component is introduced, as we explore what might happen to the Seattle Metro’s identity as current growth impacts arts organizations and artists.

Late Summer and Fall Pruning

Fruit tree growers know the main pruning is done in the spring, but summer pruning is important also. When pruned in the summer, the new growth is not as strong and you don’t tend to get as many water sprouts. Espalier trees definitely need a little trim in the summer. Many ornamentals can also use pruning at this time but you have to be careful as pruning flowering shrubs at the wrong time will leave you with no flowers the following year.
