Under the baton

It’s probably the first question anybody asks Nikolas Caoile, upon seeing his name in print for the first time. “It’s pronounced ‘Koh-WILL-ee,’” says the new conductor of the Wenatchee Valley Symphony. “My last name’s actually Filipino, from my father. My mother’s Vietnamese.”

Styx keeps on sailing

WENATCHEE — James Young caught the first glimpse of Styx’s impending fame as he stepped out of a taxi in midtown Manhattan. It was the late ’70s, the band had recently released their seventh album, “Grand Illusion.” “Come Sail Away” and “Fooling Yourself (Angry Young Man)” climbed the charts. “Someone yelled out, ‘Styx!’ at the sight of me getting out of the cab,” Young said. “That’s when I realized, OK, people have figured who we are.’ ”

Wilf Woods: Auto-tune or the old-fashioned way?

How come pop singers sound so perfect, pitch-wise? They are using new software that corrects their pitch, that’s how. It’s called “auto-tune” and there are two brand names that make them, writes John Kehe in the current Christian Science Monitor Weekly.

Bluegrass fest stays true to its roots

CASHMERE — The sound of banjos and bass carried softly on a chilly twilight breeze Monday — four days before this weekend’s Wenatchee River Bluegrass Festival at the Chelan County Expo Center. The campground opened at noon, and already a caravan of about 30 RVs and tent campers had rolled in — the first of about 300 expected this weekend.

Commedia dell’heart

Love. Deceit. Disguise. Everything but death. That last element, it’s said, is what distinguishes tragedy from comedy. Nobody dies in Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart’s “Così fan tutte,” so it must be a comedy. (Also: it’s funny.)
