  • As the aspens of northern New Mexico put their autumnal colors on display, The Santa Fe Symphony presents a program of burnished favorites featuring guest conductor Oriol Sans.

The concert is seasonably named Fall Gold.
    Tickets are on sale now for the show, which begins 4 p.m. Oct. 19 at the Lensic Performing Arts Center in Santa Fe.
    Catalan conductor Oriol Sans has performed with orchestras in America and Europe, and studied with some of the most acclaimed contemporary maestros and musicians.

  • The Arts in Public Places Committee and members of the Pajarito Environmental Education Center recently met with artist Greg Reiche to formally kick off the design process for the sculpture to adorn the outside of the new Los Alamos County Nature Center. The group toured the construction site where the facility is under construction, giving the artist a chance to better understand PEEC, its mission and the role the center will play in the community.
    Reiche is a New Mexico sculptor with public art commissions on his résumé, such as a monumental 30-foot-tall steel and glass sculpture at the El Camino Real International Cultural Center in southern New Mexico, and as a member of Albuquerque’s “Big I” Landscape Design Team. Each of Reiche’s pieces is designed with the location and the client’s needs in mind.
    The next step in the process will be for Reiche to return with a set of conceptual drawings, from which the art board will choose one or more for further refinement, with input from PEEC. Subsequently the design will be finalized and construction of the piece will begin. The goal is to have the sculpture in place at the nature center for the building dedication next spring.

  • Los Alamos has a new nonprofit in town, Champions of Youth Ambitions also known as C’YA.
    The youth development program has worked for two years to get through the paperwork and red tape of officially becoming recognized 501(C)(3).
    The Board of Directors includes Valerie (Adams) Harris, a former Los Alamos Public School teacher now teaching in Andrews, Texas, with new husband Tim, Pauline Powell Schneider, Los Alamos retired and senior organization director, Debra Minyard, Pojoaque Valley High School music instructor and Link Crew leader, Karen Greenfield, Los Alamos Family Council and Megan Pfeffer, a Department of Health employee and former Mercy Award recipient.
    The C’YA executive director is Bernadette Lauritzen, who along with husband Chad, known by many elementary students as the “Sci Guy” have worked hard to volunteer for many programs locally, regionally and occasionally a little further.
    There were so many things we wanted to accomplish,” Bernadette said. “There were always small grants and opportunities available, but without being recognized as a nonprofit, the doors were closed to us.
    The duo put many hours into projects like the Festival of Trees and Chocolate as they envisioned future funds for programs from youth development to hands on science in the schools.

  • Always wondered what the devil looks like? What fraction of a roasted gopher would be required to completely bed down a man’s appetite? Look no further than your local public library, where  “O, Brother, Where Art Thou?” (2000, PG-13) will be shown at 6:30 p.m. Thursday, in the upstairs meeting-room “theater.”
    Joel and Ethan Coen’s take on Homer’s “Odyssey” reimagines the classic tale as it might have occurred in 1930s Mississippi. Ulysses Everett McGill (George Clooney), Pete Hogwallop (John Turturro), and Delmar O’Donnell (Tim Blake Nelson) escape from a chain gang to begin a quest for treasure.
    Along their way, they receive counsel from a blind prophet who tells them they will see a cow “on the roof of a cotton house.” They happen upon a picturesque baptism in a scene that might allude to the Lotus Eaters in “Odyssey,” a group that invites travelers to eat lotus leaves that cause them to forget just about everything. They meet a one-eyed Bible bully, a trio of river vixens, a baby-faced bank robber, and a man who sold his soul to the devil because, as he says, “I wasn’t usin’ it.” They sing into a can. They eat rodents. They eat horse. They go through a lot of hair jelly.

  • The Los Alamos Middle School football team descended on the school garden, as part of their practice last week.
    Its volunteer work assisted the “Hawks Landing,” project from a Keep New Mexico Beautiful grant. Aid from the LAMS Parent-Teacher Organization, Los Alamos Landscaping and More and community donations of soil and compost will help the school achieve phase two of their project.
    Donations can still be made to the prevention office by calling 663-3252.
    The football team will play at home Thursday and Oct. 9.
