Today's Features

  • Los Alamos Light Orchestra presents, “Into the Woods” a musical written by Stephen Sondheim and James Lapine. It showcases half a dozen Grimms’ fairytales, to include the classic, “Jack and the Beanstalk,” which is intertwined with an original story about a childless baker and his wife.
    Once upon a time, in a far off kingdom, there lived a sad young lad whose name was Jack. Jack lived with his mother in a house that was rapidly falling apart and to Jack’s mother’s dismay, her son would rather daydream than help her with everyday tasks.

  • The letters “MD” after a name can denote “medical doctor” or “musical director.”  In the case of Ivan Shulman, these letters denote both, what he describes as a natural combination.
    Shulman, the conductor of the Los Alamos Symphony Orchestra’s Oct. 21  Fall Concert, grew up studying oboe under the tutelage of his father, oboist Harry Shulman, who played in the NBC Orchestra under Arturo Toscanini.
    In college he studied pre-med and went on to medical school at the University of Pittsburgh, with a general surgery residency in New York, Seattle and San Francisco.
    While keeping a busy medical career, Shulman always sought out opportunities to play in both community and professional groups.

  • “Was it the ‘angel of death’ which passed over the Hebrew and Egyptian homes and killed the first born where the blood was not on the door post? Does this “angel of death” appear other places, like where 70,000 were killed?” — Hunter

    Sometimes we use a phrase that we think is in the Bible because it sounds like it ought to be biblical. The phrase “angel of death” is a good example. Actually, the phrase does not appear in Scripture. Its source seems to be a loose combining over time of various Bible stories, some that recount events of death and destruction and others that speak of warrior-type angels.
