On the Scene

Sunday was a day for magnificent music in Grass Valley, including the Twin Cities Concert Association concert with orchestra and chorale performing some superb classics (and having an end-of-season reception).

The breathtaking Great Mass in C Minor by Mozart at St. Patrick’s Church, was presented most eloquently by Sacramento’s Concerts of All Hallows, complete with Tammy Brock, a Nevada Union alum and a marvelous soprano. Congrats to all for the very best in classical music!

Hindi Greenberg told me that Katie Rubin was “incredible” in her recent one-woman show “Insides OUT!,” saying “She’s a superb actress.” Watch for Rubin’s next one-woman show in Foothill Theatre Company’s 2009 lineup.

The Draft Horse Classic, set for Sept. 18-21, is already selling tickets for its six performances in the arena at the fairgrounds in Grass Valley. You can go online at http://www.nevadacountyfair.com or visit the fairgrounds’ office on McCourtney Road.

For some spectacular canyon art, go to http://www.boulderutah.com/index.html. This is the area (southern Utah) where Nevada County’s own Molly Fisk is having her August writing workshop. Contact her at molly@mollyfisk.com for more details.

Women are gathering on “the Ridge” to have a lovely Memorial Day Weekend, camping and celebrating how great it is to be female with ritual and lots of fun. It’s affordable. Wish I could go. Contact (530) 913-5480 and lightingourpath@gmail.com for details.

I’ll be out of the office for a couple of weeks as of Friday. The capable Carol Guild (cguild@theunion.com; 477-4219), our features editor, will be handling Prospector.

And, finally, our condolences to the Hall family on the loss of their patriarch, Oakely Hall, a novelist whose work was focused mostly on the historical American West.
