  • The Santa Fe Opera’s most modern sounding offering this season is Polish composer Szymanowski’s “King Roger.” 

    The piece premiered in 1926, which doesn’t make it the most recently written, but it is years away from the others, in regard to its structure and subject matter.

  • Take a snapshot of white tents on a green lawn, 100 artists, thousands of pieces of art and hundreds of shoppers and if you’re in Los Alamos, you can bet it’s the annual Fuller Lodge Art Center summer Arts and Crafts Fair. 

    Most of the vendors are full-time artists making a living from their art. About 75 percent of this year’s group were here last year and said they look forward to returning. 

  • Following the sell-out success of their second annual High Tea and Fashion Show last year, the House of Hope ladies’ mission team and the co-ed Trinity Builders team invite the community to join them again this year for a tea, followed by a fashion show. 

    The afternoon’s activities are intended to raise funds for house building mission trips to Juárez, Mexico.

  • It’s Los Alamos County Fair weekend and the Los Alamos County Summer Concert Series is going to do a show of country-soul music at Ashley Pond. This means country music played with soul. If this sounds strange, think again. 

    There’s been Ray Charles with all of his country hits in the early 60s, Joe South, Joe Tex, Charlie Rich, Flying Burrito Bros., O.C. Smith’s “Little Green Apples,” Elvis, Arthur Alexander, Solomon Burke, Fats Domino, Creedence Clearwater Revival, Johnny Rivers and many others.

    Thursday
    Annual Butterfly Count for Los Alamos. New Mexico butterfly guru Steve Cary will identify butterflies and discuss their habits and life histories. No experience necessary. Three habitats will be counted: mesa top, streamside and high altitude. Meet at Burnt Mesa Trailhead on N.M. 4 at 9 a.m. Bring close-focusing binoculars, water and sturdy shoes. Some nets provided. For information, call 662-2662.

  • Chamisa Elementary turns 45 this year, with Principal Debbie Smith in her third year, as the top cheetah.
    Even though the start of school is next week, Smith is eager to begin by welcoming more than 50 new families to the fold.
    What has the greatest appeal for Smith?
    “Building on our relationship with neighboring San Ildefonso Pueblo and Northern New Mexico communities, celebrating student success and providing challenging individual opportunities,” Smith said.
    Smith has spent a good portion of the summer preparing their yearlong calendar to be set before school starts, collaborating with parents, the community and working with the new PTO board.
