Roundup: Lucille Ball, Norwalk Youth Symphony, More

Happy New Year. Congratulations to us all. We made it out of 2020.

There’s no looking back now!


Every new year brings hope — and a fresh start — to Westport.

That’s the same thing Lucy Ricardo and her friend Ethel Mertz wanted 60 years ago. “I Love Lucy”‘s stars had just moved to the country.

And this is what the country saw, on the top-rated comedy show:

I’d heard about the photo, and searched all month for it — to no avail.

Providentially, late yesterday, Wendy May emailed me. She figured I already had it, but figured what the heck.

Amazing! 2021 is already starting out on the right foot.


Over 30 Westport 4th through 12th graders perform with the Norwalk Youth Symphony. They did not miss a beat this fall. Despite the pandemic, the 65-year-old institution added chamber music ensembles, master classes and lessons in music theory, to its regular program of 5 orchestras.

This month, the NYS offers new seminars for high school students and adults. Topics include “Women and the American Sound,” “The Roaring Harlem Renaissance,” “1,000 Years of Music in 60 Minutes,” and “Alma Mahler and Her Times.”

Ahead: a seminar for parents on motivating young musicians.

Young musicians now play remotely from their homes in sections by instrument. It’s different — but they and their instructors have risen to the challenge.

And finally … “Do You Love Me” like you’ve never heard it before!
