CSO Presents 'Home for the Holidays'
The Chattanooga Symphony & Opera presents its annual holiday concert, Home for the Holidays, on December 21 and 22 at the Tivoli Theatre. The theme “Through a Child’s Eyes” focuses on holiday memories from each generation’s childhood – from “Go Tell it on the Mountain” to “You’re a Mean One, Mr. Grinch” to the more modern Polar Express. “The music on this year’s Home for the Holidays program should invoke special memories for each member of the family, from grandparents to young children,” stated CSO Marketing Director, Samantha Teter.
Conducted by Music Director Kayoko Dan and produced/directed by Joel D. Scribner, CSO musicians will be joined by the Chattanooga Symphony & Opera Chorus, directed by Darrin Hassevoort, the Metropolitan Bells, the Chattanooga Boys Choir, host Greg Glover, plus a cast of costumed mascots, skaters, local schoolchildren, and, of course, Santa. “This is truly a community event, bringing together several arts organizations plus a cast of children from schools such as Falling Water, Nolan, and Chickamauga Elementary Schools, Soddy Daisy Middle School, Belvoir Christian Academy, St. Nicholas School, GPS, Baylor and homeschool,” stated Teter.
Tickets for both performances are on sale now and start at $19, while supplies last. Tickets for children under the age of 18 and college students with a valid student I.D. are $15. Tickets can be purchased online at www.chattanoogasymphony.org or by calling 423.267.8583.CSO Presents 'Home for the Holidays' Monday, October 28 2013, 04:46 PM EDT

JOAN RIVERS - LAWSUIT
NEW YORK (AP) -- Melissa Rivers says no family should have to go through what she, her son -- and her mom -- went through. So she has filed a lawsuit against the clinic where Joan Rivers was being treated when she lost consciousness last year. The malpractice suit against Yorkville Endoscopy suggests doctors treating the E! Fashion Police star were careless, cocky -- and incompetent. Among other things, the suit claims the doctors botched the endoscopy and performed another medical procedure on Rivers' vocal cords without consent. The suit also says the doctors snapped a selfie with Rivers while she was still under -- and were slow to respond when her condition deteriorated. Rivers died a week after she was taken unconscious from the clinic to a hospital.
AP Entertainment Editor Oscar Wells Gabriel reports Joan Rivers' daughter has sued Yorkville Endoscopy, where her mother was treated before her death last summer.

BENEDICT CUMBERBATCH - APOLOGY
LONDON (AP) -- Benedict Cumberbatch is offering no excuses -- he says he was simply an "idiot" to refer to blacks and other minorities as "colored." The Oscar-nominated actor uttered the word in an interview with Tavis Smiley on PBS. Cumberbatch said -- quoting here -- "as far as colored actors go," there are more opportunities in the U.S. than Britain. While the actor said the situation is "something that needs to change" -- his choice of words to describe minorities blunted those sentiments for some. While the term isn't considered inherently racist, it was widely used to described blacks in this country during the pre-civil rights era when there were separate public accommodations for blacks and whites -- supported by both custom and law.
AP Entertainment Editor Oscar Wells Gabriel reports Oscar nominee Benedict Cumberbatch used an outdated racial term in discussing diversity in movies during a PBS TV appearance.
LOS ANGELES (AP) -- Aside from Jennifer Lopez's latest movie, it wasn't the best weekend to be a brand new offering at the multiplex. Jennifer Lopez's "The Boy Next Door" finished a distant second to "American Sniper," which ruled the box office for the second straight weekend. Two other major releases failed to crack the top 5. The animated fantasy movie "Strange Magic" landed in seventh place, while the latest Johnny Depp flop, "Mortdecai" was in ninth place.
