Jura Margulis in Concert
Petaluma Historical Library & Museum
Friday, May 24th, 2019 @ 7:30 pm

Sky Hill Cultural Alliance & Petaluma Museum Association are pleased to present Jura Margulis – Russian Virtuoso in Concert. Join us for a magical evening!

Jura is a world-renowned virtuoso pianist who is currently based at the Music and Arts University in The City of Vienna.  He will once more return Friday, May 24th to the North Bay with a powerful and uplifting performance to inspire audiences of all ages.  Margulis will be playing works by Tchaikovsky, Schumann and Mussorgsky.

Margulis has developed quite a loyal and dedicated following and we are fortunate to be able to enjoy this concert in the beautiful and acoustically superior Petaluma Historical Library and Museum. Sky Hill Cultural Alliance and the Petaluma Museum Association have been working together for over ten years, bringing high-quality classical music to Petaluma.

Margulis will play his eleventh concert on the legendary Henry F. Miller concert grand, which is currently housed in the Petaluma Museum. His first performance on this piano was at the Charles M. Schultz Museum in 2009. This piano was built in Boston in 1899 and has been magnificently restored by JB Piano Company in San Rafael.

Enjoy complimentary wine and cheese.

Rodgers and Hammerstein’s Cinderella – May 3, 2019

Rodgers and Hammerstein’s Cinderella
Spreckels Performing Arts Center
May 10th – 26th, 2019

The first known instance of a “Cinderella story” appeared more than 2,000 years ago, in 7 B.C. What makes this a story for the ages? It is a tale that celebrates everything we love and value: hard work, modesty, generosity, bravery, perseverance and last, but certainly not least, the firm belief that something better…something wonderful…something impossible…is possible for us all. This is the new, updated version of the Rodgers and Hammerstein classic. Cinderella and Prince Topher meet as intellectual, if not social, equals. There are new songs, new subplots, new characters. But all the original favorites are still there: “Impossible”, “Ten Minutes Ago”, “Sister’s Lament”, “A Lovely Night” ….and more!

Showtimes:
May 10th, 11th, 17th, 18th, 23rd, 24th & 25th at 7:00 pm

Wednesday, May 1st – Mobilization to protest banks that invest in private detention camps • Free and Reunite Children with their Parents • $15 Minimum Wage • Climate Justice • Public Banks • End Homelessness • Provide Housing for All • Police Accountability

In the United States since 2006, May Day has been a day to take action for immigrant rights. Internationally, it has been a day to recognize workers’ rights. Recently the two have merged with the realization that we need both political and economic rights to achieve justice. This year the coalition has expanded to include the Sonoma County Tenants’ Union and the launching of their membership drive. May Day will be a day to celebrate community. The importance of the day was most articulately stated by the historian Howard Zinn:

“The really critical thing isn’t who is sitting in the White House, but who is sitting in – in the streets, in the cafeterias, in the halls of government, in the factories. Who is protesting, who is occupying offices and demonstrating. Those are the things that determine what happens.”

For details, call (707) 527-4011.
