Concert forces jail to move inmates out of McLean County
A union leader told Reuters he was optimistic the two sides could reach a permanent deal by Friday. The dispute hangs on whether the stagehands – mostly prop-makers, carpenters and electricians – should have a role in a new educational wing that the Carnegie Hall Corp plans to open above the hall next year. The corporation wants to hire cheaper labor at the education wing. Negotiations with the union took an unprecedented turn on Wednesday when Local 1 of the International Alliance of Theatrical Stage Employees decided to go on strike for the first time in the history of Carnegie Hall. However, when James Claffey, president of Local 1, emerged from negotiations on Thursday afternoon, he announced the union had agreed to pull down the picket line for the day, citing progress in the talks. “This is a goodwill gesture towards Carnegie Hall,” said Claffey, whose local has negotiated some of the most lucrative pay in the industry. He later said further progress had been made, and that even though picketing would continue, he hoped to reach a deal by Friday. Carnegie Hall’s five full-time stagehands make an average of $400,000 per year including benefits, The New York Times reported, citing the organization’s tax returns. Claffey said there were many more stagehands represented by the union who work only sporadically. “This dispute is not about those employees,” Claffey said. “This is about everyone else.
Carnegie Hall concert goes on, after strike canceled performance
Williamson said the master class is an opportunity for students to work with a professional musician other than their regular teachers. Its like taking a private lesson where an audience gets to watch, Williams said. A student is asked to perform a short program, and Dr. Ertl will give a lesson. The work is viewed by a new teacher, which brings a different perspective and sometimes a new interpretation of the music. Any piano students interested in attending the master class may contact Williamson at 410-6144. He also likes to talk to his audience about the music hes playing, Williamson said. Ertls program will include a sonata by Ludwig van Beethoven and Frederic Rzewskis Winnsboro Cotton Mill Blues. Following intermission, he will play a composition by Franz Liszt. The program will conclude with a piece Ertl describes as one of the most technically challenging pieces in his repertoire. Its Igor Stravinskys transcription titled The Firebird. I try to change my playing style to adapt to what composer I play, he said. While Beethoven and Mozart are musically challenging, The Firebird is the most technically difficult for me. A winner of numerous national and international competitions, Ertl has given multiple performances at Carnegie Halls Weill Recital Hall and debuted at Merkin Concert Hall in New York City, on Chicago Radios Live from WFMT series, Wisconsin Public Radios Live from the Elvehjem series, and performed with the Milwaukee Chamber Orchestra and Fox Valley Symphony. Successful in numerous competitions, Ertl won first prize in the 2009 American Protege International Piano Competition and third prize at the 2008 Young Artists International Piano Competition in Washington, D.C. For the past seven years, Ertl has been the Artist-in-Residence Fellow for PianoArts, where he has performed hundreds of interactive outreach concerts and collaborated with over 20 public schools.
The cost of housing those inmates for the weekend was estimated Monday at $2,100. A total of 90 people were booked into the jail between 7 a.m. Friday and 7 a.m. Monday, with 79 of them released on bond, according to Sheriff Mike Emery. Drug-related arrests related to the Coliseum event added to the jails population issues, he said. The event impacted us in a negative way in terms of our population. We had nine drug arrests from traffic stops of people going to the concert. There were two drug overdoses reported before 10 a.m., said Emery. A traffic stop by McLean County Sheriffs officers netted two pounds of marijuana scheduled for delivery to concert patrons, said the sheriff. On Saturday, the jails population peaked at 270, a number that includes those held on new charges, along with people serving sentences and pre-trial detainees. A decision on when the inmates will be returned to McLean County will be made after a review of the population on Monday, said Emery. The sold-out concert at the city-owned venue was attended by 6,000 people, many of them willing to stand in line for hours on Friday to obtain a wristband that afforded them on a spot on the floor near the stage. In addition to the headaches the concert caused for the jail, local hospitals also braced for an influx of drug- and alcohol-related cases based on what emergency rooms saw during a previous Bassnectar concert in Bloomington. We were very busy last year so we prepared this year by having additional staff available, said Eric Alvin, spokesman for Advocate BroMenn Medical Center.
