www.SanTanSun.com Lasso some holiday harmony


Swirling ropes and clear sweet sopranos will fi ll the halls of Gold Canyon United Methodist Church at 3 p.m. Sun., Dec. 18 when the Gold Canyon Arts Council presents the Tucson Arizona Boys Chorus in their holiday concert. Under the direction of Dr. Julian Ackerley, the choristers will perform Christmas carols, sacred and secular songs as well as Hanukkah selections. Bedecked in formal maroon robes, the Chorus begins the program with sedate choir selections including movements from Ralph Vaughan Williams Hodie and “In the Bleak Midwinter” by Gustav Holst. The festivities will lighten slightly but remain on the serious side as they then proffer arrangements of familiar “Joy To The World” and “Hark! The Herald Angels Sing,” followed by “Hanukkah Nigun,” the French carol, “Entre le bœuf et l’âne gris” and the Liberian African Noel, “Buwana.”


The robes come off and the ropes come out during the lighter side of the vocal program which features such standards as “Christmastime Is Here,” “Carol of the Bells,” and “White Christmas” as well as a small glimpse into the choir’s signature Western set, including a demonstration of fancy trick rodeo lassos. Founded in 1939 by Eduardo Caso, who was known

Twilight time for West Select


A new Western art installation is about to mosey into the sunset for another year. Launched as the fi rst of an annual event and presented by the Museum’s Men’s Arts Council, “The West Select” unites more than 30 of today’s leading artists to present an expansive look at the American West in an exhibition through Sun., Nov. 20 at the Phoenix Art Museum, 1625 N. Central Ave. in Phoenix. Featuring nearly 100 paintings, drawings, sculptures and photographs of 30 artists, the selected works reveal iconic landscapes, still-life and wildlife; revisit historical genre scenes of cowboys, settlers and American Indians; and display depictions of the modern, or “New West.”


“Phoenix Art Museum has been at the forefront of Western American art for more than three decades,” comments James Ballinger, The Sybil Harrington director at Phoenix Art Museum. “In that time, Phoenix has become a vibrant metropolis, maintaining a sense of tradition while embracing a contemporary approach to life in the American West. The Museum’s primary Western art exhibition should represent the breadth of this new environment.”
