“Music is a moral law. It gives soul to the universe, wings to the mind, flight to the imagination, and charm and gaiety to life and to everything.”

— Plato

Winona Wyatt is a multitalented Philadelphian full of charm and gaiety- and some interesting surprises.

“Sweet Love” was a hit song from songstress Anita Baker, but it could also be a job description for this week’s Portrait. Emory McLeod is a wedding and custom-cake coordinator at Cake Life Bake Shop. A charming young woman with a lovely and frequent laugh- and I found out just before we started our phone interview that her partner is Nima Etemadi, winner of The Cupcake Wars and one of my favorite profiles from a few years back. Sweet!

I love the art of dance and, last year, I saw an amazing group of performers at the Prince, Les Ballets Jazz de Montréal. When I heard they were coming back, I tracked down one of the performers to get an inside glimpse. I spoke to dancer Mark Sampson via FaceTime between his rehearsals in a beautiful old building that used to be a library, but now functions as office space for the government Arts Council and Ballet Jazz and a number of different arts organizations.
