My Top Five - Cucalorus features to check out this year

It’s that most wonderful time of the year in Wilmington -- the week of the Cucalorus Film Festival. This is only the second time I’ve been around for it, but if it’s like last year’s, it will involve more films than one two-eyed human can possibly absorb, fun parties, and very high-quality people watching.

My Top Five ways to get your kids into Classical Music

Elise in Wilmington Youth Symphony Orchestra 09-10.
Steven Errante, WYSO

Wish your kids loved classical music as much as you do?

As a youngster, I had some great opportunities that transformed me into the classical music lover I am today.  I think that I was interested in classical music from a young age because I was able to interact and engage with it in a way that was fun.

Fortress(es) of Solitude: Top 5 Things to do Alone in ILM

www.baldheadisland.com

From Thoreau’s Walking: “If you are ready to leave father and mother, and brother and sister, and wife and child and friends, and never see them again; if you have paid your debts, and made your will, and settled all your affairs, and are a free man; then you are ready for a walk.”  Amongst the various and complex themes imbedded here, the spirit of solitude in Thoreau’s lines is what moves me. I don’t literally want to leave my family and never return, but I do want to be alone every now and then… Who doesn’t?

Lightning strikes WHQR

http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/thumb/6/6a/Thunder_at_Saitama_2.jpg/320px-Thunder_at_Saitama_2.jpg

Updated Saturday evening 7/28: Our all-classical HD2 signal, on HD and online, is now back in service. Thank you for your patience.

Our studios at 254 North Front Street in Wilmington were struck by lightning Tuesday night. There was some damage to the building itself. In our studios, many of the computers were knocked off, but most control rooms were not seriously damaged. Our new control room is only partially operational, however.
