Against a backdrop of British post-war prejudice, a German SS soldier and POW signs to the Manchester City football club. A real-life legendary goalkeeper, Bert Trautmann’s joining the team causes outrage to thousands of soccer fans, many of them Jewish. Support comes from an unexpected direction: Rabbi Alexander Altmann, who fled the Nazis.

Sonomusette at the Occidental Center for the Arts (Aired: September 18, 2019)

Occidental Center for the Arts
Saturday, September 28, 2019 @ 8:00 pm

Occidental Center for the Arts is pleased to bring back to our stage the talented musicians of SonoMusette! Led by Parisian born singer Mimi Pirard, this exciting Sonoma County-based ensemble authentically recreates the moody, evocative sound of the Paris cafe scene of the mid 1900s, music made famous by Edith Piaf, Jacques Brel, Charles Trenet, Django Reinhardt and other iconic performers of the era.

This music has retained it’s power to enchant and transport audiences, and SonoMusette taps into that nostalgia with artistry in both vocals and instrumentation.

SonoMusette’s renditions of these timeless French classics provide a freshness and excitement that is contemporary, yet faithful to the spirit and tradition of the original versions. Few singers are capable of doing justice to Piaf and Brel, and even fewer can match Mimi Pirard’s mesmerizing interpretation and delivery. The band features: Mimi Pirard – vocals; Robert Lunceford – accordion; Jan Martinelli – piano & bass; Isaac Vandeveer – guitar & bass, and Richard Andrews – drums.

SonoMusette will charm and transport you as they expertly recapture the moody and melancholic sound and spirit of mid twentieth-century Paris in OCA’s acoustic sweet spot with cabaret and concert seating.

Fine refreshments including wine and beer available.

OCA is accessible to people with disabilities.

Book Launch of Living On The Fringe: A Memoir by Abraham Enti at the Occidental Center for the Arts (Aired: September 9, 2019)

Book Launch: Living On The Fringe: A Memoir by Abraham Enti
Occidental Center for the Arts
Sunday, September 15, 2019 @ 3:00 pm – 5:00 pm

When Ed Entin decided to torch his draft card, everything about his life changed. He had his whole life mapped out. It was 1966 and Eddie had just been accepted into Yale Law School — his ticket out of the Army and Vietnam and into a life of secure prosperity. It only took one day, one decision to change the course of his life. What follows is a sometimes harrowing, often hilarious, and always illuminating ten-year journey through the social, political, and spiritual turmoil of the era.

For anyone wondering how it was back then — or how to get through right now— Living on the Fringe provides a look at how one person who waded into the turbulent waters of his time came out whole, dry, and ready to face the future. And with a new name to match the person he had become.

About the Author: After the events described in this memoir, Abraham and his wife Rachael Flug went on to create Diaperaps Ltd., a business that helped revitalize cloth diapering for the benefit of babies and the environment. He founded the Sonoma County affiliate of Move to Amend and has written extensively about corporate personhood, money and debt. He is very proud to have received a certificate of appreciation from Occupy Santa Rosa for his “tireless support of the Occupy Movement and his work to end corporate greed and corruption”.

At seventy-four, Abraham Entin is still out rousing the rabble.

Abraham is a singer, a songwriter and a storyteller, and dances at every opportunity. He is a long-time student of Rudolf Steiner’s social ideas and is particularly interested in how spiritual perspectives influence and help bring about positive social change.

Join us for music and song, selected readings, Q&A, book sales and signing.

Refreshments are available by donation, beer and wine for sale.

Admission is free, but all donations happily accepted!
