2017 Program Highlights

 

December 6, 2017

Richard Altenbach, formerly 1st Violinist of the Los Angeles Chamber, LA Opera, Joffrey Ballet, and Houston Symphony Orchestras, and currently first chair for the InConcert Sierra Orchestra and the Auburn Symphony, is preparing a beautiful musical program with three or four other musicians. He is composing one of the works especially for us. Richard has performed live on the Academy Awards (including 2014) and The Tonight Show, and has collaborated with Frank Sinatra, YoYo Ma, Barbra Streisand, Mannheim Steamroller and Puff Daddy among many others. We are fortunate he is bringing this program to Newcomers. Join your friends and get into the holiday spirit!

Attended by medical physicians, therapists and others, the California College of Ayurveda provides training and information on pain relief beyond prescription drugs. Much of mainstream medicine already incorporates alternative practices such as acupuncture and chiropractic into its treatment protocols.

Ayurveda representatives Amanda Parish and Tiffany Rousseau-Robinson will provide information on some of the alternatives available to assist in relieving pain like that which occurs from Lyme disease. This should be an interesting departure from the more formal medical presentations we’ve had in the past.

He’s back! Brent Nixon, performer, environmentalist and professional photographer, is returning. Many of you remember Brent from his performance on Bears and Whales. When not filming the endangered environment and its inhabitants, Brent performs for Celebrity Cruises and sells his filming to National Geographic Magazine. His latest contribution to National Geographic is “Saving the Coral Reefs.” Our Program Chair found him filming the black tailed shark in French Polynesia on his way to finding the green turtles nesting in Hawaii. This is a popular event so book early!

April 25, 2018 – Fashion Show – Back at Alta Sierra!

Back to its usual place at Alta Sierra Country Club, the annual Fashion Show will be a really fun experience. The theme is a tantalizing one – Fashion Forward, a History of What We Wear. This will be a chance to travel through time when fashion began (narration), and sequence our steps (models) to the relaxed and comfortable fashions of today. Plan to come and bring a friend on this trip through fashion.

May 23, 2018 – Sierra Stages

Sierra Stages is becoming a musical show tradition. Their 2017 production of Chicago was New York quality performed by our own unbelievable area talent.
