  • PEEC and Reel Deal team up

    Pajarito Environmental Education Center and the Reel Deal Theater are teaming up at 6 p.m. Nov. 1 to show a new PBS documentary about the Valles Caldera National Preserve.
    “Valles Caldera: The Science” tells about scientific research currently being conducted on the Preserve. A question and answer session with the director and scientists involved with the film will be after the showing. Tickets will be $10 for adults and $5 for children at the door.
    “Valles Caldera: The Science” is the first in a planned three-part documentary for PBS. “Valles Caldera: The History and The Future” are still in development stage.  “The Science” explores the scientific research currently being conducted in the VCNP.  
    It covers three main topics: geologic history, current research and fire impacts. LANL scientists assisted with creating 3-D animations of eruptions to show the geologic forces that formed the Caldera and surrounding structures, and many Valle staff assisted with the filming process.
    During filming, the Las Conchas fire burned about 30 percent of the VCNP.  This event added a few new dimensions to the film, allowing the crew to obtain incredible comparative images and data from before and after fire.

  • LACA kicks off season Nov. 3 at Duane Smith

    The Los Alamos Concert Association continues its 2012-2013 season with the trio David Finckel, Wu Han and Philip Setzer.
    London’s Musical Opinion said of Finckel and Han’s Wigmore Hall debut: “They enthralled both myself and the audience with performances whose idiomatic command, technical mastery and unsullied integrity of vision made me think right back to the days of Schnabel and Fournier, Solomon and Piatigorsky.”
    Beyond the duo’s recital activities, Finckel also serves as cellist of the Emerson String Quartet.
    Finckel and Han have achieved universal renown for their commitment to nurturing the careers of countless young artists through a wide array of education initiatives.
    Violinist Setzer is a founding member (recently retired) of the Emerson String Quartet, which has received nine Grammy Awards, three Gramophone Awards and the Avery Fisher Prize.
    He has performed cycles of the complete Beethoven, Bartók and Shostakovich string quartets in the world’s musical capitals, from New York to Vienna.  
     In 1976, Setzer won a bronze medal at the Queen Elisabeth International Competition in Brussels.

  • 'After Dark' with the Lads of Enchantment

    The Lads of Enchantment will present their Annual Barbershop Harmony Show Oct. 26 and 27 at the United Church of Los Alamos.
    This year’s show, “After Dark,” will feature the Lads of Enchantment Chorus and quartets and the Lads’ special guest, The 505 Chorus, Albuquerque’s young men’s a cappella group.
    “After Dark” takes a light-hearted look at the misadventures of Dr. Frankenstein as he attempts to brighten his existence using his form of creativity.
    The foibles of Frankenstein and his assistants establish the premise for the Lads to sing traditional barbershop songs and favorites such as “Blue Moon,” “By the Light of the Silvery Moon,” “I’m Sitting on Top of the World,” Blue Velvet” and “Moonlight Bay.”
    Since the show is the weekend before Halloween, the audience is encouraged, but not required, to wear a costume and participate in a costume contest each night of the show.
    The 505 Chorus brings the energy and enthusiasm of youth and a blended sound to the show.  The 505 Chorus was founded in 2008 by four young men who wanted to compete in collegiate a cappella choral singing, which has undergone resurgence in recent years.  

  • Go down the rabbit hole with 'Alice in Indian Wonderland'

    Get a taste of India and travel down the rabbit hole with “Alice in Indian Wonderland,” from 4-6 p.m. Sunday at the Duane Smith Auditorium.
    For the eighth year, Kavita Nandakishore and Alina Deshpande will present the “Dances of India” fundraiser. This year, it will benefit Bharat Vidyalaya, a school for children living below the poverty line in Wai, Maharashtra, India.
    Nandakishore and Deshpande teach Kathak and Bharatnatyam dance classes at the Y. Deshpande teaches Kathak, an East Indian classical dance that involves combinations of hand and foot movements set to a combination of beats, while Nandakishore teaches Bharatnatyam, a classical dance from South India that combines postures, drama, expression and rhythm in an attempt to “embody the divine beauty, charm, rhythms and symbols that exist in heaven as a means of spiritual elevation,” according to the Y’s website.
