In advance of his multiple playing appearances here on the Eastern Shore (as part of the 28th Annual Chesapeake Chamber Music Festival), Kara Dahl Russell chats with Double Bass player Anthony Manzo about “the beast” he plays. From detachable necks, to stick bodies, to sleek carbon fiber shaping, Kara and Tony “get physical” with one of the largest pieces of furniture in the orchestra. Tony also talks about his extensive performance/travel career, what makes a good teacher, and what best prepares a student to have something to say, musically.
RICHMOND, Va. (AP) - Sen. Mark R. Warner says he's introduced legislation that would better track the restoration of the Chesapeake Bay.
The Virginia Democrat says the legislation would require the Office of Management and Budget to compare costs and the performance of restoration activities by various federal agencies involved in the massive environmental endeavor.
The multi-year effort to clean up the bay involves at least 10 federal agencies, Virginia, West Virginia, four other states, the District of Columbia and more than 1,000 local governments.
