February 24, 2011 | Leave Comment

An evening of Indian classical music by Ustad Shafaat Khan beginning at 7 p.m. Sunday will raise funds for Sahaya International, a nonprofit based in Davis, to construct a second level on the Mother Teresa School in India. The performer, Ustad (“Maestro”) Shafaat Khan, has distinguished himself by being the first known artist to have attained simultaneous excellence in performing the sitar, surbahar and tabla.

Doors at the International House, 10 College Park, open at 6:30 p.m. There will be a brief intermission with refreshments. A suggested donation is $20 for adults and $10 for children and students. For more information, visit http://www.sahaya.org.

Post’s art on exhibit at The Artery

Sara Post’s ceramics, paintings and prints are on exhibit as “Close to Home” through March 8 at The Artery, 207 G St. in downtown Davis.

Post offers her tribute to the beauty, the fascination and even strangeness of houses and gardens. She looks at walls, windows, doors and rooftops; the spaces they create and the landscape they define.

She works in a variety of media and techniques, including ceramics, painting, printmaking and collage. “I love working across media and freely using the materials that best express the idea of any particular piece of art work,” she said in a news release.

For more information, call The Artery at (530) 758-8509 or visit http://www.theartery.net.

Indian classical fusion concert set

The Nada Brahma Music Ensemble will perform Indian classical fusion music from 8 to 10 p.m. Saturday, March 5, at the Davis Holistic Health Center, 1403 Fifth St., Suite B, in Davis.

Original ragas (melody forms) and talas (rhythmic cycles) are 100 percent improvised. The ensemble’s creator, Matthew Grasso, has developed his own style — a synthesis of classical guitar, sarod, and south Indian violin — and performs on a 25-string guitar with percussionist Alex Jenkins on traditional tabla of North India. The music is cyclical with complex patterns and shifting shades of intensity.

A donation of $10 to $20 will be asked at the door.

Winter presents ‘The Foreigner’

What happens when a painfully shy Englishman is mistaken for a “foreigner” in southern Georgia? The locals believe he doesn’t understand a word of English and manage to spill all their secrets in front of him. Audience members will find out if he can help save the rustic lodge and its colorful inhabitants in a Winters Theatre Company production of Larry Shue’s “The Foreigner” this spring at the Winters Community Center, 201 Railroad Ave.

Tickets for the gala opening at 7:30 p.m. Friday, April 1, are $15. For all other performances — at 8 p.m. Fridays and Saturdays, April 2-9, and 2 p.m. Sundays, April 3 and 10 — are $10 general and $6 for seniors and students.

For more information or reservations, e-mail winterstheatre@gmail.com or call (530) 795-4014.
