Healdsburg, CA. ~ The Healdsburg Community Band (HCB) is presenting two per- formances of its annual Light Classics concert May, featur- ing classical music used in cartoon soundtracks since the 1930’s, becoming beloved to generations of children and adults. The first concert is a ben-

is free, and all donations will go to CARE. The second will be Sunday, May 19, 3PM at the

Healdsburg Community

Church, 1100 University St., Healdsburg. Admission is free, and donations will be gratefully accepted. “This pro- gram is fun for both the audi- ence and the band,“ observes HCB board president Dave Brandt. “Think of Elmer Fudd singing

‘kill the wabbit…

kill the wabbit’ to the tune of Richard Wagner’s ‘The Ride of the Valkyres’ and you get the idea.”

In addition to Wagner, the

band will perform pieces by Rossini, Offenbach/Roberts, Von Suppe’, R. Strauss, and others, which audience mem- bers will remember from Sat- urday mornings in front of the TV. Matt Wallace will move from the French horn section to the podium to conduct both performances. The Healdsburg Community

Band is all-volunteer, com- prised of about 50 musicians who get together for the joy of making music and serving the community. The not-for-profit organization supports music at Healdsburg High School with scholarships, equipment purchases, including an an- nual concert benefitting the Healdsburg Education Foun- dation.

Band members have a wide range of skill levels, and lo- cal residents are encouraged to join if they play or used to play an instrument.

There are no auditions, but applicants should have a basic ability to read music. Contact: Stu Matlow ~ stuartmatlow@ Phone: 415-407- 5474 ~ www.healdsburgcom-

Some California plants live a long time. The eastern Sierras’ Bristlecone pines are 4,600 years old, but a Mojave Desert creosote bush is among the world’s oldest living things at 43,000 years.
