Multi-Media Jazz Concert: “Jazz Reach”

Marcus Strickland

Due to the lack of arts and music programming in schools today, there are organizations throughout the United States that have devoted themselves to the education of young audiences in this medium.  One of these non-profit organizations, JazzReach,  ”has developed a unique and diverse repertoire of substantive, high quality live educational programs for young audiences that are especially tailored to elucidate the art form and complement a broad range of students’ everyday classroom curriculum.”  Their multi-media programs are highly interactive, entertaining, yet informative.

On February 3rd, both young and old will have the opportunity to enjoy a remarkable evening of jazz, sponsored by the Cal Neva Resort.  This immersive, globally themed main-stage program features performances of all new commissions by prominent, internationally recognized jazz composers hailing from countries as diverse as, West Africa (Lionel Loueke), Israel (Omer Avital), Cuba (Yosvany Terry), Puerto Rico (Miguel Zenon), India (Rudresh Mahanthappa) and the United States (Marcus Strickland).

35 local jazz musicians from Incline Village, North Lake Tahoe and Truckee have trained with these renowned musicians and will perform in the opening piece of the show.  The history of jazz will certainly come alive in the local Lake Tahoe community!

North Tahoe Arts: The Weekly 30 Year Anniversary Exhibit

If you’re a vintage buff, then be sure to check out the exhibit of Lake Tahoe’s local magazine, The Weekly, at North Tahoe Arts Center in Tahoe City from January 5th to February 27th!

The Weekly celebrates its 30th anniversary in 2012, and pays homage to its history by displaying one cover picked from every year of publication from its inception in 1982.  An Opening Reception for the exhibit is January 13th from 5 to 7 p.m. at the Arts Center, is free to the public and locals and tourists alike are  invited to attend.

The 30 years of covers on exhibit feature winter and summer recreation, local faces, local events and a fantastic look at Tahoe and Truckee for the past 30 years. The highlight of the exhibit is the first edition, which published on February 18, 1982, as “North Tahoe Week.” The first edition was 12 pages and featured a photograph by Vance Fox of a skier cliff jumping near the horse trails in Squaw Valley.

The Weekly is celebrating its 30th year with a redesign of the magazine, debuting on January 12th, along with a special 30th anniversary edition on February 9th.  They will host a 30th anniversary party on February 11th, for all attend.  At this time the location is TBD.
