    Performance on Sun. Dec. 10, 4pm

    A new choir taught by Sarah Cane, who leads singing classes at Inverness School. 

    Singing in a choir is a wonderful way for kids to begin their musical training. There are a multitude of benefits, helping them to develop musically, socially, and intellectually. We will begin to read and write music, and sing in harmony with new friends. Our rehearsals will be part vocal training, part musicianship, part games, part rehearsing pieces, and maybe even a little dancing thrown in. All elementary school ages welcome. Come sing with us!  Contact Debbie Daly at Sound Orchard (415) 663- 5018 for more information and register on-line at soundorchard.com.

We will examine trials at sea in Melville's “Billy Budd” and the “Mutiny on the Bounty Court-Martial” and enjoy the Tracy and Hepburn attorney characters in "Adam's Rib."

    West Marin Standing Together Benefit Featuring Will Durst
    Will Durst is an American political satirist; he has been called a modern mix of Mort Sahl and Will Rogers.  He provides much needed levity in these stressful times.  Durst presents his new solo outing “Durst Case Scenario,” a hysterical exploration of the changes in America during the Time of Trump. In this lightning-paced, comedic tour-de-force, Durst, described by the New York Times as “possibly the best political comic working today,” analyzes where we are, how we got here and what possible destinations lie ahead. Along with analyzing the altered political landscape, he also details the wacky zany antics, palace intrigues and potholes and pitfalls of polarization that threaten our country, hemisphere, planet, solar system and universe, in this, The New Abnormal.  Equal parts comedy and therapy, the intrepid Dr. Durst assists audiences in overcoming their PTSD: President Trump Stress Disorder, by surgically isolating the farcical and sticking pins into the ludicrous. For sufferers who never thought they’d laugh again, this show is the perfect prescription.

    Reconstruction and Recovery:  The Post-Civil War South
    Old Dixie was shocked and humiliated by her unexpected defeat at the hands of the detested Yankees.  Incredibly, "The Chivalry" had been beaten by soulless, materialistic Northerners.  How would the loyal sons and daughters of the Confederacy react to the Unthinkable?  Carry on the struggle, or join the modern world and create a commercial, urban culture where cotton and sugar cane once grew?  This class will trace the moral and political struggle post-war Southerners faced in the wake of utter ruin.
