  • Local author honored with book award

    Cary Neeper, a longtime resident of Los Alamos, was named a silver medalist at the 2013 Nautilus Book Awards for her second title, “The Webs of Varok.”
    Released in December 2012, “The Webs of Varok” follows the human and alien cast from Neeper’s 1975 first-contact novel, “A Place Beyond Man” as they leave a troubled 21st century Earth for the promise of stability on a veiled moon of Jupiter.
    “The Webs of Varok” is the story of a mixed family gambling their trust in each other against the power of greed.
    Their challenges and progress on an alien world threatened by overgrowth portray in fiction some positive solutions to our current dilemmas here on Earth,” Neeper said.
    The Nautilus Awards recognize print books of all genres that inspire readers to explore new possibilities for positive change.
    According to their website, “Gold and Silver awards are given to print books of exceptional merit that make a literary and heartfelt contribution to spiritual growth, conscious living, high-level wellness, green values, responsible leadership and positive social change, as well as to the worlds of art, creativity, and inspiration.”
    Neeper’s book was recognized in the mid-grade/teen fiction category.

  • Party band to entertain at summer concert series

    Igor and the Red Elvises, brings the party to Los Alamos Friday.
    The Red Elvises started out as a Siberian wedding band, an ambitious Russian folk band named Limpopo, coming to the United States in the mid-1980’s. They lived in Santa Monica, Calif., and became popular there. They were introduced to President Ronald Reagan as a “hellipcrazy” Russian Folk ‘n’ Roll group, and in 1993 won on Ed McMahon’s International Star Search TV show. The Red Elvises formed in 1995 after lead singer, Igor Yuzov had a dream where Elvis Presley told him to become a rocker.
    “Fans from Los Alamos to Los Angeles, Seattle to Miami and all around the world (yes, the world) say, ‘Oh, you have to see them live. They’re so much fun!’ I’d bet there’s at least a thousand people in this town alone who agree,” Organizer Russell Gordon said. “They’re tremendous showmen. They’re always touring, always evolving. They’re talented and entertaining. I was checking them out on Facebook and there are a whole lot of new songs. There are some new members yet they’re still a tight band and very talented. Even if they aren’t your favorite band, they could be yours as they are mine, favorite “party” band.”

  • S.F. Opera plans six productions for 2014

    SANTA FE (AP) — The Santa Fe Opera in northern New Mexico will feature six operas during its 2014 summer season, starting with a performance of Bizet’s “Carmen.”
    Opera General Director Charles MacKay announced next season’s productions and casts on Wednesday.
    The company will for the first time perform Beethoven’s “Fidelio,” Mozart’s “The Impresario” and “Dr. Sun Yat-Sen” by Huang Ruo, a Chinese-born composer whose opera is making its American premiere.
    There also will be new productions of Donizetti’s “Don Pasquale,” which was performed by the Santa Fe Opera in 1983, and Stravinsky’s “Le Rossignol,” which was last done in 1973. The work by Stravinsky will be part of a double bill with Mozart’s comic opera.
    The opera’s current season opens June 28 with Offenbach’s “The Grand Duchess of Gerolstein.”

  • Concert pays tribute to Cowans

     The Los Alamos Concert Association presents the Borromeo String Quartet in a concert dedicated to the memory of George and Helen “Satch” Cowan, local patrons of the arts whose service to the community of Northern New Mexico will long be remembered.
    “Satch” passed away in 2011 and George died last year.
    Beginning with George’s service on LACA’s Board of Directors in the early 1950s, he and his wife supported the association’s efforts to bring great music to Los Alamos for more than 60 years. LACA’s unique program offering free tickets to young people, master classes with its artists and other youth outreach events will continue into the future thanks to the Cowan’s generosity.
    Since their debut in 1989, the Borromeo String Quartet have become one of the most sought after strings quartets in the world, performing over 100 concerts of classical and contemporary music across three continents every season.
    Audiences and critics alike champion their ability to bring back the contemporary fire to often heard works from the classic repertoire while making even the most challenging new music approachable.
    As one of today’s most adventurous quartets, they continue to push musical, intellectual, and technical boundaries to a level achieved by only a very few.

  • Classical combinations

    The Los Alamos Choral Society and the Los Alamos Community Winds will join the Los Alamos High School Choirs to perform Beethoven’s 9th Symphony, 4 p.m. Saturday at the Duane Smith Auditorium. During Tuesday’s rehearsal the performers practiced the 4th movement of the symphony, conducted by Ted Vives.
