A Cappella Ensemble VOCES8 to Perform in Grass Valley

The dynamic polyphony of a cappella ensemble VOCES8 will be on full display in Grass Valley Oct. 22 with “Light Divine,” a program of featured works to showcase the beauty and solace derived from a live musical experience. The performance, one of only two in California on their 2017-18 world tour, will be presented by InConcert Sierra.

“Warmth, radiance, guidance and comfort: from the pale glow of moon or starlight to the blaze of summer sun, light has always been a symbol for our most basic human needs, both physical and spiritual,” according to a statement from VOCES8. “In compiling the music for Light Divine, we found ourselves returning time and again to this idea of the desire for comfort being expressed through music…”

The program will include traditional songs by Byrd, Britten, Rachmaninov, Mendelssohn and Bach, along with works by Renaissance composers John Mundy, George Marson and Thomas Hunt. The “Light Divine” will also feature a few contemporary composers whose works also evoke visceral impressions.

“There is for us something inherently comforting about the sound of unaccompanied voices in harmony, and if this programme shows one thing it is that composers across the ages have felt the same way,” according to VOCES8 statement.

British vocal ensemble VOCES8 is now established as one of the world’s most versatile singing groups. Touring extensively throughout Europe, North America and Asia, the ensemble has performed at venues such as the Wigmore Hall, Royal Festival Hall, Royal Albert Hall, Bridgewater Hall Manchester, Cité de la Musique Paris, Vienna Konzerthaus, Tokyo Opera City, National Concert Hall Taipei, National Centre for the Performing Arts Beijing, the Shanghai Concert Hall, Tel Aviv Opera House and Mariinsky Theatre Concert Hall. Artistic collaborations have included the Philharmonia Orchestra, London Philharmonic Orchestra, Royal Philharmonic Orchestra, violinist Hugo Ticciati, cellist Matthew Sharp, and pianist/composers Jonathan Dove and Ola Gjeilo, according to their biography.

Audience members will get a chance to learn more about VOCES8 and their program during a 1:15 p.m. pre-concert forum at which Aileen James will host a conversation with the members of the ensemble on stage.

Tickets are $35 for general admission and are available by phone at 530-273-3990, online at www.inconcertsierra.org (ticketing fees will apply) and in person at BriarPatch Co-op in Grass Valley. There are a limited number of youth tickets (ages 5-17) available for at no charge with the purchase of a general admission ticket. Youth tickets must be arranged with the InConcert Sierra office prior to the performance.

Artist of the Month at Nevada City Winery – Linda Galusha

Linda Galusha is showing her paintings and mixed media pieces throughout the month of October. Nature has held her interest with its intense variety. Her works are about ‘seeing’ a thing and expressing this with the art language tools of color, line, space, timing, rhythm, etc. These tools are used with both intent and intuitive interaction with the subject and the piece.

Upcoming Native Plant Sale Will Feature Native Plants That Beat the Heat

Redbud Native Plant Sale on Saturday, October 14, at North Star House in Grass Valley

When summer temperatures soar and persist, many folks think all California native plants dry out like early spring wildflowers. Not so. Many California species have adapted to beat the heat. Come meet dozens upon dozens of beautiful, successful native plants for gardening, at the Redbud Native Plant Sale on Saturday, October 14, at North Star House in Grass Valley.

It’s organized by the Redbud Chapter of the California Native Plant Society. You’ll find hand-picked, locally adapted, low-water California native trees, shrubs, perennials, bulbs, grasses, and seeds from specialty and wholesale growers. Many are grown by Redbud members.

The Redbud Chapter will have expert native-plant gardeners available throughout the sale. They can share information on choosing plants for specific needs and locations, as well as on pollinator-friendly, drought-tolerant, fire-resistant, and lawn-alternative plants.

The chapter has published two books helpful to local gardeners. They’ve recently released the second edition of their very popular Wildflowers of Nevada and Placer Counties, California. Its sister publication is Trees and Shrubs of Nevada and Placer Counties, California. The chapter will be selling these books and others at the plant sale, as well as Redbud T-shirts. They’ll also have more of the garden signs that were so well-received last year, proclaiming “Native Plants Live Here!”

The sale will run 9:30 to 2. The first hour is plant-society member appreciation; you can join at the door. Organizers advise bringing boxes, or a wagon if you have one. North Star House is at 12075 Auburn Road, Grass Valley, 95949.

To volunteer, email volunteer4redbud@gmail.com. Join these gardeners in restoring nature, one garden at a time. For more information, please visit www.facebook.com/redbudplantsale.

Finding the Heart of Inspiration

A recent road trip to Santa Fe and the Southwest created fuel for new paintings that will be featured on the Fall Colors Open Studios Tour at the gallery and working studio of LeeAnn Brook. In her 12th year on the Studio Tour, Brook’s gallery LeeAnn Brook Fine Art will also be a distribution center where visitors can pick up free maps for the tour of studios of over 60 artists in Western Nevada County on Oct. 7 & 8, 14 & 15.

As a special feature for the Studio Tour, Brook will share her process and sources of inspiration from her recent trip to the Southwest. Posting a daily travelogue of inspiring images on her Instagram page (leeannbrook_fineart) called “Inspiration Road Trip”, she covered the 10 day camping trip to Sedona, Arizona, Santa Fe and Taos, New Mexico, the cliff dwellings of Mesa Verde National Park, as well as long stretches of highways through the Utah and Nevada deserts. Reflecting a color palette of saturated light and textures rich with collage and mixed media, Brook’s new paintings are inspired by photographs that she shot on the trip. Her Nikon camera as well as the immediacy of a cell phone camera captured bits of inspiration from the red and purple rocks of Sedona, to huge purple skies in Santa Fe, to the wide open desert in Nevada. The photos will be on display in the gallery, demonstrating how their inspiration connects to Brook’s paintings. Her award winning book “Points of Inspiration: An Artist’s Journey with Painting and Photography” will also be on sale at a special price during the Studio Tour. The book has received four national awards including a special review in Publishers Weekly.

The studio and gallery located at 300 Spring St. in downtown Nevada City, is open Wednesdays through Sundays, 12-5 p.m. For more information, visit www.leeannbrookfineart.com/gallery.

They are TFC success stories and they are continuing to enrich our community.

The Friendship Club is supported primarily by the generosity of the community and private grants. Singer said “ We are so grateful for Judi and Bob Weiner’s continued support of The Friendship Club. For the past several years, Judi has generously donated proceeds from one day of shopping in her beautiful store. We think it’s a win-win for businesses and organization’s to partner in this way.
