Chattanooga Symphony Youth Orchestra Celebrates 20 Years with Gary Wilkes
The Chattanooga Symphony & Opera Youth Orchestras (CSOYO) concludes their 2012-2013 season on May 6 at 7 pm at the Tivoli Theatre featuring all four orchestras and featured soloists, including Jay Craven (Chattanooga’s “Mr. Music”) and Thomas West (PAL Vocal Competition winner).
Many friends and alumni will be on hand to help Gary Wilkes celebrate his 20th anniversary with the CSO Youth Orchestras. One of those will be Jay Craven, former conductor of the youth orchestra when Gary was a student member. In 1966 Gary Wilkes played a solo as concerto competition winner with the youth orchestra with Jay Craven conducting. Now they are trading places! In addition, the selection that Jay Craven has chosen to play, “Concertino for Clarinet and Orchestra” by Karl Maria von Weber, is the very same selection he played in 1953 with the Chattanooga Symphony Orchestra when he was the student concerto competition winner.
The CSOYO Prelude and Etude Orchestras, conducted by Nichole Pitts, will open the concert. Following them will be the CSOYO Philharmonic Orchestra, conducted by Sandy Morris. The program (with no intermission) will conclude with the CSOYO Symphony Orchestra, conducted by Gary Wilkes. Also featured on the program is the Performing Arts League Vocal Competition winner, Thomas West. Thomas was featured on a live broadcast of “From the Top” here in Chattanooga last year.

JOAN RIVERS SUFFERS CARDIAC ARREST
NEW YORK (AP) -- On Wednesday, Joan Rivers seemed the picture of health -- as she attended an event for Time Incorporated employees in New York. But less than 12 hours later, her life appeared to be hanging in the balance. The veteran comedian is in a New York City hospital after being rushed from a doctor's office. Her heart stopped. No one is saying officially what her condition is -- and it's unclear what her prospects of recovery are because it's unknown how long her body was deprived of oxygen. Rivers is 81. In a statement, Melissa Rivers says her mother was "resting comfortably" with family. But the statement didn't give any details about her mother's condition. Melissa Rivers' statement adds the family offers thanks for the "overwhelming love and support" for her mother. Joan Rivers has spent a half-century in show business. Though recently she has become known for her snarky comments about celebrities on the red carpet, at one time, she was considered the top female standup comic of her time.
Joan Rivers suffered a heart attack yesterday. The AP's Jamie Friar reports she's now in a New York hospital.
BRAD PITT, ANGELINA JOLIE MARRY
NEW YORK (AP) -- First came love, then the baby carriages. And now, it's finally marriage for Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie. The couple named "Brangelina" by members of the Hollywood news media has tied the knot. There had been talk for two years that Pitt would finally "put a ring on it" -- but when or where would it happen? We now know it was Saturday in Southern France -- but until The Associated Press nailed it down yesterday, there'd been no word on the celebrity nuptials. The AP source says Jolie and Pitt exchanged vows in a small chapel at the Chateau Miraval in the hamlet of Correns. The couple had lived at the home since 2008. Pitt and Jolie have been together nearly a decade-- and have six children. All the children took part in the wedding.
AP Entertainment Editor Oscar Wells Gabriel reports the wedding was a long time coming.

KEEPING SECRET MARRIAGES SECRET
NEW YORK (AP) -- The butler didn't do it. For that matter, neither did the baker, the florist, the caterer -- or anyone else involved in the wedding of Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie. The big story yesterday wasn't that they had gotten married over the weekend -- it was that they had managed to get married without word of the wedding leaking out. How'd they do it? One big-time party organizer says a growing number of celebrities are doing everything they can to keep details about the weddings from being leaked. And Pitt and Jolie were able to pull that off. David Tutera says one big help in keeping plans under wraps: confidentiality agreements for vendors. Such legal documents bind vendors to pay fines if they blab about what they are doing.
PHILIP SEYMOUR HOFFMAN FRIEND STRIKES PLEA DEAL
NEW YORK (AP) -- A friend of Philip Seymour Hoffman won't end up doing time in a drug case. Robert Vineberg has struck a plea deal with authorities in New York City after being busted after the actor OD'd on heroin in February. Vineberg was arrested as police chased leads in Hoffman's case -- but he wasn't charged with having a role in the actor's death. Vineberg's guilty plea to heroin possession means he has to serve five years' probation. He could have faced a more serious drug charge that could have resulted in his doing jail time -- and being deported to his native Canada.
SHAKIRA TO BE MOM AGAIN
NEW YORK (AP) -- Shakira, Shakira. Baby, baby. The singer and coach on "The Voice" is now expecting her second child. She made the announcement on her Facebook and Twitter pages yesterday. And her rep confirms the accounts are real. No additional details about the pregnancy were revealed online. Shakira and soccer player Gerard Pique had their first child last year. Shakira is 37 -- and her beau is 10 years younger.
UTAH MAY APPEAL "SISTER WIVES" CASE
SALT LAKE CITY (AP) -- Utah's governor says the state should keep fighting a court ruling that makes it appear legal to marry more than one wife. Gary Herbert says state laws should be defended in court until all appeals have run out. A court has struck down key parts of a law that criminalizes polygamy. The ruling comes down in favor of the family that stars in the reality TV show "Sister Wives."
