Fairytales delivers magical, musical storytelling

Music at the Missions final concert of the season on Saturday, May 30, is thoroughly imaginative and enchanting. In a rare and powerful cross-genre collaboration of artists, Music at the Mission Fairytales showcases how beloved fairytales from throughout the ages can be interpreted and reimagined by composers, painters, and musicians of today.

The program, which includes the powerful and utterly gorgeous Danse infernale du roi Katschei from Stravinskys Firebird Suite, incorporates a multi media show of works by French painter Antoine L. Cavalier, which are his visual interpretations of the music on the evenings program: Ravels Mother Goose Suite, Schumanns MŠrchenbilder for Viola & Piano, Stravinskys Firebird Suite for Solo Piano, Bolcoms Fairy Tales, and Prokofievs Cinderella Suite for Two Pianos.

Bringing virtuosic magic to these works are the Music at the Mission Chamber Players: Elizabeth Prior, viola; Gianna Abondolo, cello; Bill Everett, double bass; Aileen Chanco, piano; and Katherine Lee, piano.

Critics have always been struck by the perfection of Ravels music, its elegance of construction, its exquisite detail, its finish. Award winning arrangements by Mark Fish of Ravels Mother Goose Suite have proven to be an utter delight, faithfully preserving while creating a new milieu in which to experience the piece.

Get your grill on at the Milpitas International BBQ Festival

The hills may turn brown, school may be over, and bathing suits may need a dusting, but itÕs not truly summer until the grill is hot and wafts of intoxicating barbecue are in the air. Milpitas is ready to kick off summer with its second annual International BBQ and Festival, two days full of barbecue, entertainment, and fun.

Organized by the Milpitas Chamber of Commerce and led by Event Chair Carla Kearin, the International BBQ and Festival was created to replace the citys Arts and Wine Festival, which was discontinued in 2008. The Chamber wanted to bring the community together once again and hold a street fair we felt that our community is very diverse, so we came up with the International BBQ and Festival, because every culture has a type of barbecue, said CJ Ericson, office manager for the Chamber.

The first festival was scheduled to launch in 2013 but was postponed due to budget cuts. The wait was worth it last years festival was a hit with tens of thousands in attendance. This year, the Chamber anticipates crowds over 25,000 and has planned accordingly, adding more food vendors as well as businesses and artisans.

Toasting 20 years of theatrical excellence

A plucky orphan, swamp-dwelling ogre, sorority girl gone Ivy League, a boy who can fly, a loyal elephant, down trodden French citizens and a chorus of dancing feet. What unites this odd menagerie? The magic of StarStruck Theatre, Fremonts all youth theatre company, celebrates its 20th anniversary this year.

While the term youth theatre might elicit a doubtful cringe, anyone who has ever seen a StarStruck production can tell you that the only youthful thing about them is the faces of their actors. From stage sets and costumes to music, choreography, and acting performance, StarStruck delivers highly professional, mature shows that amaze with their quality and vibrance. How many audience members have had to consult their programs at intermission to verify that those adult characters on stage are indeed being played by kids? Or marveled at the top notch voices bursting from people who still do homework?
