The Colburn School in downtown Los Angeles is launching a new Recovered Voices series with conductor James Conlon that will present performances, seminars and other events focused on composers whose careers were cut short during the Holocaust. Conlon launched Recovered Voices in 2006 at Los Angeles Opera, but the company put the series on indefinite hiatus in 2010 because of budgetary reasons. The new Recovered Voices at the Colburn is being funded by a $1-million grant from Marilyn Ziering, the philanthropist and L.A. Opera board member.

'Recovered Voices': The headline on a review of "Recovered Voices" in Tuesday's Calendar section said the two works performed by Los Angeles Opera were written by German composers. Although "The Broken Jug" and "The Dwarf" were written in German, neither of their composers -- Viktor Ullmann and Alexander Zemlinsky, respectively -- was German. Zemlinsky was Austrian; Ullmann was born in Teschen, a city claimed by both Poles and Czechs and which at the time of his birth was part of the Austro-Hungarian empire.

Conductor James Conlon, the music director of Los Angeles Opera, has received an award from a Jewish group for his work in resurrecting long-forgotten and rarely performed pieces by composers whose careers were cut short during the Holocaust. Conlon was honored Tuesday with the 2012 Cohon Award for his work in the creative arts fields. The annual award, which comes with a monetary prize, is organized by the Rabbi Samuel S. and A. Irma Cohon Memorial Foundation in Illinois. Conlon asked that the $30,000 prize be directed to the OREL Foundation, a nonprofit group that the conductor founded to help educate the public about the music of composers suppressed by the Nazis.

An underwater Navy robot, operating by remote control 700 feet beneath the surface of the Pacific Ocean, retrieved a cockpit voice recorder late Wednesday that should contain clues to the crash of an Alaska Airlines jet off the Ventura County coast. Earlier in the day, the Coast Guard called off its search for survivors, saying there was no chance any of the 88 people aboard Flight 261 could have lived.

In three short years, Recovered Voices has become one of Los Angeles Opera's signature programs. But its absence from the company's main-stage calendar next season suggests an uncertain future for the pioneering series. L.A. Opera inaugurated Recovered Voices in the 2006-07 season to explore works by composers whose careers and lives were cut short by the Third Reich. The project is the brainchild of conductor James Conlon, who joined the company as music director that season.

A year ago, after what they called the "Christmas coup," supporters of the listener-sponsored Pacifica radio network felt they were losing their beloved radical voice to a group trying to sell it, or at least make it mainstream and bland. This year for the holidays, it looks like they're getting it back--though some assembly will be required. An agreement earlier this week settled a trio of lawsuits brought by irate supporters and dissident members of Pacifica's board of directors.

Lying on the table in the Marin General Hospital emergency room, Phil Sanson couldn't breathe. His eyes wide with terror, he realized he had no way of telling the nurses he was suffocating. His vocal cords were useless and his air passage was blocked by a fractured larynx, incurred when he dived out of bounds to save a loose ball in a basketball game between his The Master's College team and Dominican College of San Rafael, Calif. Fearing death, he prayed. Then, he slipped from consciousness.

Don't worry: The Los Angeles Opera production of "The Birds" doesn't involve manic feathered creatures attacking people in a Hitchcockian twist. In this whimsical representation of Aristophanes' Greek comedy -- part of the opera company's Recovered Voices project exploring neglected musical works -- the call of Walter Braunfels' "The Birds" ("Die Vogel") is more sweet that possessed. The fable tells the tale of two city dwellers who flee to the kingdom of the birds in search of a better life.

"It's a completely new experience," said Matthew Zuber, a 21-year-old bassoonist studying at the Colburn School. "I've never done an opera before. " He was referring to his participation -- along with 21 other young musicians at the downtown conservatory -- in a new collaboration between Colburn and Los Angeles Opera's Domingo-Thornton Young Artist Program. That union gets its first showcase this weekend, when the combined forces present two one-act operas: Ernst Krenek's "The Secret Kingdom" and Viktor Ullmann's "The Emperor of Atlantis.
