Well, it was the day before Christmas Eve and for some reason a lot of people seem to have something else to do. So film critic Bryan VanCampen came in to talk about the year in movies, to reflect on the theater scene in Ithaca, and to mention that his puppet Sheldon the Sheep will be appearing on the Pegasys channel (13 on the local Time Warner roster) repeated over the next month or so.
In January Shin Hollow will be returning to its old 1st and 3rd Sunday schedule, so we will have our first show of the year on January 6.
Alice Ploss, the director of the Trumansburg Community Chorus, will be in to explain harmony, the difference between an alto and a tenor, pitch, hymns and carols and tell us about their upcoming concert (on December 16) in the First Presbyterian Church in Trumansburg.
Ithaca Times film critic Bryan VanCampen will be busy with his directorial duties with the Readers Theatre and will be back on the first Sunday in January.
Instead Mary Ann Grady-Flores will call in to talk about the local activism at the Hancock Air Base outside of Syracuse. Drone pilots who are bombing in Afghanistan are based there. Last month 17 protesters were arrested and 12 – some of them from this area – are going to trial.
Next month Shin Hollow Radio will be returning to a schedule of broadcasting on the first and third Sunday of each month. Through the fall semester we moved to the 2nd and 4th Sundays at the request of the Sunday Forum folks.
