Re: “VisArt Video Focuses on the Future

Wow, there are so many lies in this article, I dont know where to begin. First of all, I bought Visart Video in 2011, not Mickey. Mickey gave me a loan to purchase it, and the contract gave me 90% ownership of the store. I ran Visart for a total of 13 years, 6 of those as owner, until Mickey stole the store out from under me by changing the locks and threatening me, stealing my personal possessions, and spreading horrible lies about me. (I am still pursuing legal action, BTW) Also, I was the one who came up with and designed the screening room, and my friends Zack and John are the ones who built and painted it.. I was the one who traveled to Seattle to Scarecrow video (I even have pictures) and gave Mickey the idea of making it a non-profit. I was the one who asked Back Alley Film Series to be a part of MY screening room. I did all of these things, not Mickey or Gina Stewart. Shame on you for not contacting me to get the real story, Pat.

Re: “Asheville poets Nickole Brown and Jessica Jacobs document their upbringings and marriage through verse

I just heard both Nicole and Jessica read, tonight. I am a 44 year old non-traditional student here at UNCW, and I have to say, I was really impressed by how truly funny, genuine, and poignant both of these authors are. I was completely inspired. I wrote a ton, tonight. I haven't done that in weeks! -Bo Miller, USMC(ret.)

Re: “New Documentary Will Showcase Untold Story of Melungeon People

I am a direct descendant of David DENHAM who lived on Mulberry Creek in Hancock County. He supposedly married a Collins. Even at 75 I still get comments about my dark completion. Glad to see some new work being done on Melungeons

Re: “New Documentary Will Showcase Untold Story of Melungeon People

We have not come across those names, but then again we have only been looking at mainly the Gibson line. But thats interesting because our Great Great Grandfather was born in Southeastern Kentucky too!

Proud to know you, lady. You have championed the creative culture in CLT for EVERYONE for years. You don't need anyone's approval. You validate you ... and our city is the better for it. Keep kicking ant hills. You will change CLT forever.

Gratitude Davita - Dupp&Swat- for laying a foundation here in the city! Loved how you stated bringing black and brown siblings to the table with you. Some folx can forget and move on, but its a blessing to see POC create their own spaces.

Re: “Bach in a Hard Place

Thank you for setting us straight and urging us to clarify this, Mr. Taylor. Of course it was not blatant disrespect of Ms. Romey. We have expanded on her credentials in the above story, and writer Perry Tannenbaum replies below:

"No disrespect was intended, either by me, or by Scott Allen Jarrett, who was my source. To be fair to Jarrett, however, I should say that he said more in Kathy Romey's favor than I relayed. Here's how the paragraph reads in my transcript: 'So Ive been engaged to teach two cantatas [at Oregon Bach Festival] just like Helmut did, cantatas 77 and 105. Also, we have engaged a man named Adam Romey as our managing director, and you might recognize that name, because his mother is Kathy Romey, who has been Helmut's longtime assistant and the chorus master at the Oregon Festival. It was her dad who founded the Oregon Festival with Helmut.'

"What I wrote was from the standpoint of underscoring the rock-star staff Charlotte Bach has assembled and Adam Romey's family connections with Helmuth Rilling, founder and leader of multiple prestigious Bach festivals here and abroad. So I would only dispute the objection that Romey was not Rilling's assistant, because I view Jarrett as a reliable source. Another pertinent quote from Jarrett, 'I was the assistant conductor and director of choruses for Charlotte Symphony from 2004 to 2015,' further clarifies his viewpoint. When you are the choirmaster, and a symphony or festival presents an oratorio or a cantata, the symphony conductor conducts both ensembles onstage, and the choirmaster — who likely prepared the choir in rehearsals —comes forward after the performance to share in taking the bows. He or she has been the conductor's assistant in my view and, apparently, in Jarrett's. I did verify that Kathy Romey is currently the choirmaster at Oregon Bach Festival and that, indeed, Adam Romey's grandfather, Royce Saltzman, co-founded the Festival with Rilling."

Re: “Bach in a Hard Place

Kathy Romey was not maestro Rillings assistant; she was often the chorusmaster, assistant director, and rehearsal conductor for his large international projects. Ms Romey is generally considered one of the best conductors and interpreters of Bachs work. She also heads a competitive choral conducting program at University of Minnesota.

I hope this was just a careless mistake and not a blatant disrespect of one of the few outstanding females indirectly mentioned in the article.

Why isn't there info about when this is playing, or a link to buy tickets?
