Rock star to the rescue: Arkells ask professor to reschedule exam so student can attend Kitchener show

A conflict between a rescheduled concert and a final exam had a Brock University student reaching out for some high profile help.
Savannah Tarantella began listening to Arkells during the pandemic, tuning in to lead singer Max Kerman’s frequent livestreams on social media. As restrictions began to lift last summer, she attended one of the band’s concerts at Budweiser Stage in Toronto.
“The whole atmosphere, it was insane,” Tarantella says. “Like everything that the band brings to the stage, and Max’s energy, he’s great at what he does.”
Eager to see them perform again, Tarantella bought tickets for the Kitchener stop of the “Blink Once” tour. Originally scheduled in February, the pandemic forced a postponement to April 22.
Tarantella knew the new date was around the time of final exams, but said she wouldn’t stress until there was a reason to stress.
When she got her final exam schedule, she discovered she did indeed have a reason to stress. Her Mineralogy II exam was scheduled for April 22 from 7 to 10 p.m., the same time as the concert in Kitchener.
Tarantella told her teaching assistant about the conflict.
“This is a problem, I have this event going on, and I’ve been waiting for this for so long, and I really don’t want to miss it,” Tarantella explains. The teaching assistant suggested she immediately contact the course’s professor and ask for an accommodation.
As Tarantella began writing that request, a friend had another idea, suggesting she reach out to the band directly to see if there was anything they could do to help.
Tarantella, who is from Hamilton, the same city where the band was formed, sent a message through social media. Not long after, she got a message back from Kerman himself, who ended up writing a note to pass on to her professor.
It read in part, “I understand that you – as the professor – can’t make this exception every time. But we’re hoping you allow Sav to write her exam on another day, so she can join us at the show.”
Kerman tells CTV News he was trying to appeal to the professor’s humanity.
“I was trying to suggest that exams will come and go, and you probably will forget about them, but the memories of a concert will last a lifetime,” he says.
Brock University associate professor of earth sciences Mariek Schmidt says she was surprised by the inclusion of a note from a member of the group. In her response to Tarantella she wrote that “having the lead singer write a message is a nice touch.”
“I get requests for accommodation for various things all the time,” Schmidt tolds CTV News. “I don’t think I’ve ever made an accommodation for a rock concert before, but certainly for weddings or things like that.”
Schmidt said given the early request, the small class size, and the fact the concert had been rescheduled due to the pandemic, she was able to accommodate Tarantella’s request, and would have done so even without Kerman’s note.
“There’s also this recognition that we all need to let loose these days,” Schmidt said. “With everything with COVID, everybody not being able to get together, people need to have an opportunity to let loose.”
Tarantella will write her exam at another time and is counting down the days until she’ll see Arkells live.
“I am so excited,” she said. “I was already excited before, then found out about my exam, a little more stressed, but now, the excitement [is] through the roof.”
Schmidt, who is a part of the Mars 2020 mission and currently studying volcanic rocks found by the Perseverance Rover, says she understands the importance of these kinds of events.
“I remember being in my early twenties and concerts were a big deal – going to spend time with friends, it’s a communal kind of experience. So I definitely can appreciate how important it is.”
Kerman says the story of Tarantella’s accommodation will likely become a part of the Kitchener show.
“We should probably have a moment to recognize Savannah and the professor,” he says.
And it is possible both could be in the crowd that night, with Kerman extending an invitation to Schmidt during his interview with CTV News.
“We’d love if you were our guest at the show in Kitchener.”

(Reuters) - Armstrong Teasdale said Monday the Midwest-founded law firm has opened a new office in Dublin, becoming the latest large firm to put down stakes in the Irish capital in recent years.
David Braswell, chairman of St. Louis-founded Armstrong Teasdale, said in a statement the 370-lawyer firm now has "important footholds in both the UK and EU markets in a post-Brexit environment."
Dublin's business climate has drawn other large law firms. As of last year, just over 10% of the workforce in Ireland, an all-time high for the country, was employed by multinational companies, particularly tech and drug companies attracted in part by a low corporate tax rate.
London-founded Bird & Bird said last month it will open an office in Dublin this summer. The same day, another London firm, Addleshaw Goddard, said it will merge with an Irish law firm.
Detroit-founded Clark Hill, which opened a Dublin office in 2018, has twice merged with small local firms, most recently in January. Hogan Lovells and the UK arm of Littler Mendelson both opened offices there in 2021, and Dentons launched in Dublin in 2020.
The Dublin launch marks the third time this year Armstrong Teasdale has said it will open a new office, following Washington, D.C., last week and Miami in January.
Braswell said in an interview the firm is carrying out a growth plan and eyeing the California, Texas and Chicago markets, and more locations in Europe.
Armstrong Teasdale landed in the UK through its acquisition of London firm Kerman & Co in February 2021, what was then its eighth new office in two years.
The firm said it aims to do work in corporate and capital markets, IP and employment and immigration out of the new Dublin office, and to expand its sports law practice.

The cast of CODA
When the small budget film CODA received a Best Picture nod at the recent Oscars awards show, there was not only cause for celebration but also acknowledgement this was the first streamed release to win in the coveted category. Also, the fact Toronto’s ‘vocal coach to the stars’ Elaine Overholt was at the centre of another trophy night, the first in 2008 when the musical Chicago with Queen Latifah, Richard Gere, Catherine Zeta-Jones and Renee Zellweger took home the coveted award.
I, like so many, wouldn’t have an inkling of CODA’s existence if it were not for Elaine’s recommendation, which brought me to the set of the Netflix series Locke & Key this past summer - a minor part body/hand double role subbing for actor Kevin Durand.
During lulls, a key actor, Emilia Jones, would remove an acoustic guitar from its case and, in a relaxed tone, sing a bit of Etta James, Joni Mitchell and others. To these ears, it sounded like the early days when coffee houses lined the boulevards of Yorkville in Toronto. A voice, sweet, soulful, and accomplished.
Both Kevin and Elaine pointed out this was actress Emilia Jones and her starring role in CODA, as they remarked, “would win the Oscar.” Bold prediction! I took it in stride yet understood comments from these two professionals were as good as gold.
As with most who witnessed the debacle Oscar night - the horror of the moment, having follow-up awardee and director Questlove defrauded of his moment of glory for Best Doc for Summer of Soul—a film FYI has been lauding since an early preview – the same for CODA. Oh, how I wish we could rewind that episode and erase the stain of the moment.
I cornered Elaine, recognizing she’d be willing to share her thoughts and insights. This is our FYIMUSICNEWS.ca podcast of the week.
More on Elaine Overholt:
Elaine’s gift for teaching is well known in Hollywood and Broadway. She has coached stars such as John Travolta, Zac Efron and Michelle Pfeiffer for Hairspray, the movie, along with Richard Gere, Catherine Zeta-Jones, Renée Zellweger, and Queen Latifah for the Oscar-winning Chicago. Recently Elaine also coached Ellen DeGeneres in two live segments on her hit talk show. Other singer/clients include Jim Cuddy, Alannah Myles, Jully Black, Max Kerman (Arkells), Sophie Milman, Jackie Richardson, Megan Fox, and Colin Mochrie.
As a Broadway coach, Elaine trained the singers in lead roles for hits like Hairspray, The Producers‘, Mamma Mia, The Sound Of Music, Once, Kinky Boots, and so many shows of Mirvish Productions. Andrew Lloyd Webber chose her to be the vocal coach and judge on the CBC series How Do You Solve A Problem Like Maria’ Although she has worked with some of the most musically talented of a generation, she also brings out the best from those who are not known for their musical talents. Comedians, actors, dancers and speakers come to Elaine to find their hidden performance prowess. On her TV series Big Voice (OWN Network), Elaine took gifted but ‘untried’ singers, put them in a 6-week boot camp, culminating in their “dream” performance. She relished working with the world-class dancers of The National Ballet & The San Francisco Ballet on their productions of West Side Story Suite.

Leave it to sophomore Jonathan Velásquez to deliver Wednesday night when No. 3-seed Kerman High needed it the most.
Facing a strong challenge from Madera High in the opening round of the CIF Central Section Division III boys soccer playoffs, Velásquez managed to control the ball with his left foot in heavy traffic and then right-footed the ball into the net to give the host Lions a 1-0 advantage with 4½ minutes left in the match.
Six minutes later, Velásquez scored again as Kerman improved to 25-1.
“He’s actually been stepping it up,” said Kerman coach Raúl Arámbula about his sophomore scoring machine. “We lost a forward and he (Velásquez) was actually my right winger. We put him in one game and after that game he’s been scoring every single game.”
Velásquez has scored a team-high 19 goals.
“We weren’t at our best at the start,” he said, “but we finished it.”
Velásquez attributed Kerman’s late comeback in the second half to his coach’s “inspirational” talk at halftime.
“I knew Madera was going to play tough. They’re a really good team. Their goalie (Jesse Cuevas) is amazing.”
Cuevas kept making big stops, until the end when the Kerman offense bunched up inside the box and kept pounding away until the Velásquez goals.
Arámbula had some concern about the opening half when Madera’s defense thwarted several Kerman offensive attacks.
“I talked to the boys about being patient,” said Arámbula, whose team went 9-0 in the North Sequoia League. “I was very patient as a coach, and I have a lot of confidence in my defense. We’re probably the best defense in the Valley.
“I knew the score would come late in the game, or in overtime.”
About the only concern Arámbula had going into the match was getting the No. 3 seed despite its only loss (2-1 in a tournament game) coming to an elite Farmersville High squad that is ranked fourth in the section.
“To be honest, I was very disappointed because I know these boys have been working very hard,” said Arámbula. “I expected to be on top of some of the teams. But, we’re ready for whatever.”
Kerman is in the same draw as Lindsay High (18-3 and the fifth-ranked overall team in the section). Kerman hosts Atascadero (13-10-2, and a 2-1 winner over Sunnyside) in second-round play Friday.
Madera senior Elmer García, who is headed to a soccer academy in Spain, was philosophical after the match.
“I definitely thought we could have come out of here with a win,” said García. “In the playoffs, everyone is 0-0 no matter what division you are in. You just come out here and give it your all.”
