‘Get centered’ and ‘Mockingbird’ does soar

What a great turnout for the open house at The Center for the Arts last Thursday.

The crowd was buzzing over art, music, friends and that great Center vibe. If you missed it, there are plenty of opportunities to “get centered” in the coming months.

With Taj Mahal and Vieux Farka Toure on the horizon, the folks at The Center (and blues dance party presenter Paul Emery) aren’t missing a beat with a full schedule for this weekend and beyond.

It’s a great time to “get centered” by becoming a member and taking advantage of those membership perks. Call The Center at (530) 274-8384 and they’ll be happy to tell you all about it. As for the shows, flip through these pages or visit http://www.thecenterforthearts.org for more.

I took a little video Thursday of part of the hula performance by Ka Hale Hula O Pilialohaokalani, based at the hula dance school in Grass Valley. The link below will guide you there. Dancers also will be performing with Raiatea at The Center on Friday, October 22.

Hopping over to Nevada City, the Miners Foundry Cultural Center is offering up some great entertainment, as well. Turn to page 5 for some unique Miners headliners.

The 2010 Western Nevada County Open Studios Art Tour & Sale is happening again this weekend. OK, I’m just gonna say it. We have the best arts community in the whole wide world! For more information on this event, visit http://www.openstudiostour.org

Dare I say again that “To Kill a Mockingbird” soars? LeGacy Productions did it again! (www.legacypresents.com) I attended this play at the Nevada Theatre Saturday and was mesmerized. Not only did this production soar, so did the time. Some people thought it was a tad slow; I thought it was captivating. OK, I’m just gonna say it. We have the best community theater actors (and directors) in the whole wide world!

A benefit event is happening on Saturday at St. Joseph’s Cultural Center. (A story by Staff Writer Greyson Howard about this benefit is in today’s A-section.) There will be lots of friends, poets and great music by Peter Wilson, the Moore Brothers, Annie McCann and Dan Scanlon, just to name a few. OK, I’m just gonna say it … well … you get the point.
