The Outdoor Art Club – Mill Valley – Sea Level Study Presentation

Outdoorartclub

 

 The Outdoor Art Club in Mill Valley has been around since 1902. It was founded by 35 women who wanted to preserve the beauty of Mill Valley. Fast forward to today and the group is now over 400 women who meet regularly to discuss not only Mill Valley but issues effecting the world.

Luckily for us they have several PUBLIC events and one is coming up on February 19th.

Leslie Alden, Aide to Supervisor Sears, will discuss the results of the Southern Marin Sea Level Rise Pilot Study Steering Committee’s work and share news of projects in Marin County. Supervisor Sears has focused on initiating broad and inclusive community conversations about mitigating the effects of and adapting to rising seas and our changing climate.

This topic is extremely important to us in Marin County as it effects Richardson Bay among other coastal areas.

Please mark your calendars for Thursday, Feb. 19, at 1:00 PM, One West Blithedale, Mill Valley

Vivaldi and Piazzolla add up for Marin Symphony’s Eight Seasons Concert

Take Vivaldi’s “The Four Seasons” and add Astor Piazzolla’s “The Four Seasons of Buenos Aires” for a program worth more than the sum of its parts.

The Marin Symphony’s will present its third Masterworks concert, “Eight Seasons,” on Sunday, February 15 and Tuesday, February 17 at Marin Center. Celebrating 20 years as concertmaster of the Marin Symphony, Jeremy Constant will be the featured violin soloist and guide on this fascinating journey exploring the complex differences and similarities between Vivaldi’s “The Four Seasons” and, tango master, Astor Piazzolla’s “The Four Seasons of Buenos Aires.” In the concert, aptly titled “Eight Seasons,” each musical season will be played alternately to juxtapose the northern hemisphere’s season with the southern hemisphere’s version of the same season. Considering summer in the north is actually winter in the southern hemisphere, you’ll hear Vivaldi’s “Summer” followed by Piazzolla’s “Winter” rather than “Summer” followed by “Summer.” The concert showcases Jeremy Constant’s exemplary talent in celebration of his 20th year with the Marin Symphony.
