What a weekend (2)!

Last time I wrote that subject line it was meant in the past tense.  This time I’m referring to the one coming up!  First we have a guest recital, my piano teacher from age 17-23 along with his wife, Aldo and Judith Mancinelli will be playing a duo piano recital in Stephens on Friday.  First we’ll have a masterclass with them today.  This is a wonderful link up for our students, because he is a connection to the grand twentieth century of American and European piano playing.  Some of his teachers were Claudio Arrau and Carlo Zecchi, pianists our kids have only heard on recordings or read about in books.

Friday we have the previously mentioned college fair, two of its participants will be giving classes to our students, Lina Bahn from the University of Colorado will give a violin class, and Daniel Ebbers from University of the Pacific will give a voice class.

Saturday we’re very lucky to have the world famous Kronos Quartet in residency on our campus!  They’ll do an open dress rehearsal in IAF Theatre at 3, then a concert at 7:30.  Sunday morning they’ll reconvene at IAF at 10 and do a workshop with music students.  The subject is Terry Riley’s In C, a piece which features patterns played in repetition or sequence over a steady drone, in this case a couple of C’s.  This is the fourth installment of what has become a tradition of Quartet guests–including the Juilliard, Calder and Miro–working with our students.

Dancers, Interdisciplinarians(does that noun work?) and others are going to the Shen Wei
Dance performance in Orange County on Sunday!  Shen Wei is of recent fame for the opening ceremony of the Olympics, among other things of course.  The Interdisciplinarians are also participating in the Halloween Haunt in the town of Idyllwild for the local kids.

Pick and choose everyone, prioritize carefully, go to what’s required for your major and then some.

Oh, and the SAT is Saturday morning!  Luckily, we’re our own testing center, so seniors:  sleep as long as you can, EAT BREAKFAST, and stumble over to Stephens or Rush and good luck!
