From page A7 | September 12, 2013 |

The YoloArts Mandala Project takes on a musical beat with the upcoming “Play Yolo” community concert. This free musical experience will begin at 6 p.m. Thursday, Sept. 19, at the Woodland Community College amphitheater, 2300 E. Gibson Road.

Activities begin at 6 p.m. with pizza, including special “mandala pizza,” pasta and cold beverages offered for purchase by Caffé Italia. Concertgoers arriving early also will have the opportunity until 7 p.m. to create a percussion instrument for playing during the appropriate time in the concert. Bringing any type of instrument from home is also encouraged. As seating will be limited, guests are encouraged to bring lawn chairs or blankets for this fun musical event.

More than 60 musicians under the artistic direction of Bobby Rogers are preparing for this evening of music designed to celebrate the land, the farms and the people of our area. Seven compositions will be performed during the evening’s program, including “Harvest Concerto” by composer John Mackie, featuring guest artist Chip Tingle of Sacramento’s Music Circus, and “March of the Sun Dried Tomatoes” by composer Julie Ann Giroux, which will feature audience participation on percussion.

The Woodland Community Band also will perform.

“Play Yolo” is the second in a four-part series of artistic explorations in Yolo County made possible by a grant to YoloArts from the James Irvine Foundation.

The Mandala Project offers an artistic voice for Yolo County residents to explore what it means to live in an agricultural place, and how we see ourselves together as pieces of a greater whole in relation to the food that is grown around us and that we eat. It is the intent of YoloArts that the project engage amateur artists, professional artists, the community at large, youths and especially underserved residents of the community.

More information may be found at yoloarts.org or by calling 530-406-4844.
