Courtney Silva
“We want to get kids interested in picking up and playing musical instruments,” said Matt Mailman, director of bands and professor of conducting at OCU. “It’s one thing to play a concert for the kids, but then to let them get hands-on experience with the instruments really seems to be what makes them excited about playing in the future.

The Wind Rises

The Wind Rises is a high-flying exit for master animator Hayao Miyazaki


Phil Bacharach
Fans of Hayao Miyazaki were understandably disappointed when Japan’s master animator announced that his latest feature, The Wind Rises, would also be his last. The 73-yearold filmmaker has given us some of animation’s most brilliant and beautiful works, including My Neighbor Totoro and 2001’s Oscar-winning Spirited AwaySo, yeah, the guy has definitely earned his retirement, and the studio he helped found, Studio Ghibli, is sure to continue making terrific pictures. But it doesn’t make Miyazaki’s departure any less bittersweet.
