Culture FIX: June 12-18

Jazz reigns this week with performances inside and out. Who can resist jazz at the American Sign Museum? Or jazz in the park, on the square or at The Redmoor? Cincy Fringe ends its annual run. Cincinnati Opera raises the curtain on Mozart’s bad-boy opera, “Don Giovanni.” And a contemporary “Fun House” opens at Solway Gallery. Treats all around.

Arts patron Amy Katzman: Doing the thing she loves to the absolute max

Amy Katsman has attended 44 New Orleans Jazz Fests. Disappointed that it was COVID-cancelled in 2021, she celebrated with a friend on her front porch by listening to WWOZ’s Jazz Fest highlights online while wearing some of her old festival passes.

When my husband and I go to concerts or any performance, of course we look around for anyone we know. With amazing regularity, we spot a woman with a familiar head of long gray-red hair, wearing colorful glasses and a flowy dress, using a cane or maybe a rolling walker. Yep, there’s Amy, we’ve said for years, always with amused pleasure at her sheer omnipresence at the cultural events of the city. 

Culture FIX: June 8-14

This week’s events tend to explore the edges, the avant-garde, things created just outside the spectrum, touching on civil rights, gender and sexual identity, the environment and the war in Ukraine. We invite you to explore, investigate, experience … or just hit up Italianfest and eat your cares away! You decide.
