It doesn’t happen often, but it’s nice to see an occasional RPO review in your pages. Thanks for Samantha Miller’s recent piece. I’d like to see more students take advantage of this top-flight orchestra, especially considering Paetec Corporation’s generous underwriting of $5 student tickets. That’s an amazing deal.

The RPO is a fine orchestra with an excellent reputation and a distinguished past. Do take advantage of the RPO experience, and tell your friends.

You left so many pieces of you with me — I’m a mosaic. You gave me pretty stained glass, and when you left it cracked into shards.


I cannot tell you how many times I’ve been sneak-attacked by a puddle on my treks across campus. A puddle.

The value of Rochester journalism

When big events are over, the national news has to move on. Local news is what covers the aftermath.
