March 10, 2011 |

The Davis High School Concert Band and Symphonic Band will perform in the annual adjudication concert at 7:30 p.m. Thursday at the Brunelle Performance Hall at DHS, 315 W. 14th St. This event offers the audience a peek behind the scenes to observe how music festival adjudicators evaluate performing groups.

The guest adjudicator for the event is Eric Hammer, director of bands at the University of the Pacific in Stockton. Following the concert presentation by each band, the audience can listen in as Hammer passes along his advice and comments to the group.

Donations will be accepted at the door.

Three music recitals planned Sunday

The Music Teachers’ Association of California, Yolo County Branch, presents three recitals featuring piano and string students who received honors recognition for their participation in the Certificate of Merit program recently in Davis.

Certificate of Merit, established in 1934, is a “total musicianship” syllabus that guides teachers to help their students develop proficiency in the art of making music. In Yolo County, 260 students participated in the program this year.

The Branch Honors recitals will take place Sunday at the Unitarian Universalist Church of Davis, 27074 Patwin Road. Recitals are at 2, 3:30 and 5 p.m. Admission is free, and a reception will follow each recital.

For details about the recitals or about the Music Teachers’ Association of California, call Marceline Lee at (530) 574-1658.

‘Sound of Music’ opens Friday at WOH

One of the most beloved musicals of all times, “The Sound of Music,” will open Friday at the Woodland Opera House. Featuring an irresistible Rodgers and Hammerstein score including “Do Re Mi,” “My Favorite Things,” “Edelweiss” and “Climb Every Mountain,” the show runs Fridays and Saturdays at 7:30 p.m. and Sundays at 2 p.m. with an additional matinee at 2 p.m. Saturday, April 2.

The Opera House is at Second and Main streets in downtown Woodland. Tickets to “The Sound of Music” are $20 general, $18 for senior citizens and $10 for children. For more information, call the box office at (530) 666-9617 or e-mail operahouse@afes.com.

‘Liz and Friends’ showcase their art

Artwork by “Liz and Friends” is on exhibit through April 5 at The Artery, 207 G St. in downtown Davis. The artists are Elizabeth Solomon, Carol Abbe, Beverly Couper and Marina Silver. For about 15 years, the group has gathered for constructive critiques, coffee and sometimes gallery excursions.

Solomon, who is known for her large acrylic paintings of animals, circus characters and birds, will show her paintings and her adventure into three-dimensional work. Abbe also uses acrylics as well as engraved collages. Couper is recognized for her watercolors and Silver uses oils for her paintings.

The Artery’s hours are 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Mondays through Saturdays (until 9 p.m. Fridays) and noon to 5 p.m. Sundays.
