Crystal Bridges: A Destination Not to be Missed

Out & About in Greater Tulsa By EMILY RAMSEY

For a number of years, my sister lived in Scottsdale, Arizona, and, later, Redondo Beach, California.

In just a couple of hours, she could be in Napa Valley, Lake Tahoe, San Diego, Las Vegas, Santa Fe.

Tulsa's Entertainment Season Off to an Exciting Start

Show Buzz by NANCY HERMANN

If I had an opportunity to recap what I did over school break, as many students are asked to do this time of year, I would gladly share my summer. My husband and I spent several weeks in Italy, centering our trip on the nine-day Umbrian Jazz Festival. Featuring preeminent musicians from around the globe, the immersive experience spoiled us with non-stop jazz on a world stage. We also attended the opera “Aida,” presented in Verona’s first-century Roman arena, and a classical music festival held in Perugia’s medieval buildings and piazzas. Besides the pure enjoyment of the history, music and art, along with Italy’s great wine and food, I valued the experience as training — tuning my ears and eyes so I can better evaluate and appreciate my entertainment encounters at home.
