Happy birthday even in the hereafter

Jerry Araos (right) watches baritone Alex Dacanay rehearse "If I Were a Rich Man" before the opening of the joint Araos-Ral Arrogante exhibition at Crucible Gallery last year. Jerry would've been 69 today. If he were around, the air would be rife with his ribald jokes about that numeral. Photos by Babeth Lolarga  
And he shall have music wherever he goes. Here a violinist serenades the visitors to the exhibition opening with Beethoven's "Ode to Joy" at Jerry's request. Like Rachmaninoff, he must've died knowing that one lifetime is not enough for good music.
