Auburn Art Walk seeks artists

Tonight the Arts Council of Placer County is holding an informational meeting for artists interested in being in the Auburn Art Walk this year. This event draws audiences from as far away as Oregon. It is taking place at 6:30 p.m. in the Arts Building at 808 Lincoln Way, in Auburn.

This year’s Art Walk reception dates will be on the second Thursday of the month as follows: April 13, June 8, Aug. 10 and Oct. 12. Call the office at 530-885-5670, ext. 119, for information.

Registration begins for Jazz Camp

It may seem early, but now is the time to sign up for Jazz Camp 2006 that will be held July 12-16, 9:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m., at the Nevada City School of the Arts.

The fee for all ages, all instruments and voice is $350. Limited scholarships are available for qualified bassists and drummers. Also, limited work/study aid is available for other instruments/voice on a financial need basis. Register online at http://www.SierraJazzSociety.com or call 273-5489.

This is the camp’s fifth year. Last year, 55 students were enrolled. An 11-person faculty is under the artistic direction of Bill Douglass (for biographies, go online); offerings include daily faculty concerts, sectionals, theory, lunch, combos and a public concert on the final evening, July 16, at The Center for the Arts in Grass Valley.

Mystery play involves audience

For intrigue, there is nothing like a mystery that requires the audience to figure out “who did it.” The popular Sierra Pines Community Players is presenting another mystery dinner theater, “Reading Aunt Louise’s Will,” though this time it is a dessert matinee on Sunday at 2 p.m. rather than a dinner performance, because the two prior evenings have sold out, according to organizers.

Reserve your $12 ticket by calling Jeannie at 268-3010. Sierra Pines United Methodist Church is located at 22559 W. Hacienda Drive, Grass Valley (above Bear River High School).
