Along with its serious strains, No. 100 passes through an array of moods: dignified, mischievous, amiably toe-tapping. Cleve managed the details of the score with characteristically minimalist gestures: by leaning in slightly toward the orchestra to create intimacy, by pumping his elbows just a bit to accent a phrase or signaling “shush” with a finger to draw down the volume. Other conductors may appear more dramatic, but Cleve knows this repertoire and telegraphs exactly what he wants: the sweetly shrill sound of oboe and flutes in the opening movement’s Allegro; the brilliance of the second movement’s “military music,” crisply enhanced by triangle, cymbals and bass drum; and the way he dialed the strings down to pianissimo level when Haydn moves to a distant key in the jovial finale. Good stuff.

Supervisor Cindy Chavez, who proposed buying the new space, said that’s the spirit that The Hub was founded on. “These were kids with a high level of need and a low level of social support,” she said. “When I was elected I went down there to see The Hub, and it was a good thing, with young people there all very open with what their problems were, what they needed. And that was nothing fancy — they just wanted a fridge. It took them forever to get a sink and a stove.”.

“How are you?” Elena asked in the car. “Everyone keeps telling me that I’m so strong,” she said, “but I just don’t feel strong right now.”. Elena told her there was nothing wrong with that, and then they went inside the salon and Shae got her fingernails painted periwinkle blue to match a homecoming dress she no longer wanted to wear. It was Friday morning, the beginning of Natalia’s fifth day in the hospital, and a doctor had just pulled the chest tube out from between her ribs.
