  • Feel the pasión in tango

    The Los Alamos Little Theatre will present Pasión de Tango with the Cuarteto Alejandro Ziegler touring the American Southwest for the first time, at 7:30 p.m. Oct. 18.  
    Ziegler (piano), Ignacio Quiroz (violin), Javier Stromann (bandoneón), Ariel Obregón (double bass) hail from Buenos Aires, Argentina, where they developed their own contemporary tango style based on the music of Julián Plaza, Alfredo Gobbi, Horacio Salgán, Aníbal Troilo, Osvaldo Pugliese and Astor Piazzolla.  
    Zielger was born in Buenos Aires, Argentina. He graduated from UCA Music University in composition and orchestral conducting. As a pianist, he joined the Buenos Aires City Orchestra (Orquesta Escuela de Tango). There he performed for over two years under conductors Emilio Balcarce and Nestor Marconi.

  • Catch ‘Hugo’ today at MPL

    Another award-winning movie screens this week in the library’s Free Film Series: Martin Scorsese’s PG-rated “Hugo.”
    This is nothing like “The Departed,” “Gangs of New York,” “Goodfellas” or any of the other brilliant, bloody, harrowing films I associate with the longtime director. There’s no need to cover your child’s innocent ears or to avert your own horrified eyes. This one is about magic, family and making dreams — not nightmares — come alive.
    The story is set in Paris during the 1930s, when women wore nice shoes and stockings to train stations and men tucked in their shirts. Hugo, an orphan, lives in the train station. If any of the passersby were to make the unlikely decision to peer through the number four in the big clock, they might see him. Otherwise, he is invisible, like time itself.
    I don’t typically like movies aimed at children. And in the beginning of “Hugo,” I felt bored, as usual, with the simple sentimentality meant to be easy for young brains to grasp.

  • Wendy Rule in concert

    Australian singer Wendy Rule will appear live in concert at the Ardantane Dome, south of Jemez Springs, at 6 p.m. Oct. 13. Tickets will be on sale at the door.
     “Wild, passionate and empowering, Australian visionary songstress Wendy Rule weaves music, mythology and ritual together to take her audience on an otherworldly journey of depth and passion,” according to her website.
    “Drawing on her deep love of nature and lifelong fascination with the worlds of fairytale and magic, Wendy’s songs combine irresistible melodies with rich aural textures and a rare personal honesty.”
    Since 1996, Rule has released six major albums. She  has toured Australia extensively and regularly performs in the UK and Europe.
    “Fiercely independent, Rule has carved a unique path through the musical mainstream. Renowned for years amongst the world’s alternative spiritual communities, she is now deservedly gaining a much broader following. Her unique live performances and her beautifully atmospheric and richly emotive songs entice an ever-growing audience into her magical realm,” the website stated.
    The suggested donation for Rule’s performance is $20, although no one will be turned away for lack of funds. For directions to Ardantane, or for more information, call Amber at 505-469-7777.

  • LASO fall concert Friday

    Familiar tunes, percussive street sounds, cowboy music of the Wild West and soaring melodies —  these will be part of the Los Alamos Symphony Orchestra’s Fall Concert at 7 p.m. Friday at the Crossroads Bible Church.  
    In his second year as music director for LASO, conductor Dr. Ivan Shulman will lead the orchestra in a concert tour.
    The Brahms “Academic Festival Overture” will open the concert. Composed as a thank you note to the University of Breslau, after receiving an honorary doctorate, Brahms included a variety of college drinking songs. Always the curmudgeonly joker, these appear loose and episodic — in a sort of “tongue in cheek” structure.
    Violinist Roberta Arruda, originally from Brazil, will solo in the Saint-Saens Violin Concerto No. 3. Saint-Saens has been described as the “compleat Frenchman” — accomplished pianist, organist, prolific author on many subjects, linguist, raconteur and world traveler.
     “I produce music like an apple tree produces apples,” Saint-Saens said. His third violin concerto is one of his most popular works.
