The La Cañada High School Music Parents Association is looking to set a new attendance mark for the La Cañada High music program’s “Celebrate Music Dinner Show and Fundraiser” this year. The event will be held on Feb. 12 from 5 p.m. to 8 p.m. at the Glendale Civic Auditorium. Last year, an all-time-high 600 people attended the dinner show, the program’s biggest fundraiser. The organization is attempting to outdo itself again this year, said Donna Dohi, the chair of the event.

I've so enjoyed the rainy, gray days of the past week because it has been a perfect time to enjoy my Christmas tree, a cozy fire in the fireplace, the soft glow of candles and remembering Christmas celebrations of long ago. This time of year will always be full of wonderment for me. The baby doll that was given to me as a child has secured her diva-like position under the tree. I know it sounds strange, but she has never had a name — she is just "Baby. " Over the many years that she has been mine, she has made several trips to the doll hospital.

Adelle Higley has never liked being told she can't do this or can't do that. "I don't like when people tell me I can't do something, because I know that I can do it. I just prove them wrong and they go hide in shame," joked Adelle, a 14-year old La Cañada resident and freshman at Maranatha High School in Pasadena. In 1996, Adelle was born in Vietnam with fused fingers and without a right leg. She had been abandoned. When her adoptive parents, Dena and Mark Higley, first met her in her home country, she was sick and malnourished, 17 months old and just 17 pounds.

Koko Hovaguimian, an alumnus of St. Francis High School, is exhibiting his Renaissance Series collection of artwork at Stephanie's Art Gallery in La CaÃ?Â?Ã?¿Ã?Â?Ã?¿ada. "Typically when I'm painting, I like to work in series. This one was the Renaissance Series," says Hovaguimian of his new collection. "The paintings aren't about the Renaissance, but the ideas that came from it. Revival of art in the city, patrons and families who would support artists and create cultural revivals — creating narratives and storylines that reflect those ideas and trying to tie them into the relevance of today.

With summer drawing to a close and the chaos of back-to-school season approaching, families and community residents eagerly gathered Sunday in Memorial Park for the final 2010 Music in the Park concert. The evening kicked off with a performance by Andre Thierry, a Northern California musician, and his band Zydeco Magic. Zydeco, a combination of both Cajun and Creole music, is rooted in Southwest Louisiana. "Here's a little zydeco music for you and it goes a little something like this," said Thierry to the enthusiastic crowd as his band kicked off its set. Though guests had comfortably settled into their lawn chairs, ready to relax and enjoy the show, many were in front of the gazebo dancing as soon as Zydeco Magic began playing.

Wow! What a dramatic change we had over the weekend. At the beginning of last week, when the thermometer was in the high triple-digits, we were gasping for a breath of fresh cool air. Then, by Sunday we were shivering when there was an over 30-degree drop in temperature. There was a crispness to the air and it made me feel like autumn was certainly on its way — hooray. This year's Music-in-the-Park series was a wonderful one. The Valley Sun co-sponsors the concert series with the city, and has for several years.

At this time of the year I'm usually complaining about the heat and how we are experiencing the dog days of summer. However, capricious Mother Nature has decided she was bored with the same old fare and is giving us what is up to now one of the coolest beginnings of August on record. Last week I was looking for my fuzzy slippers and this week I was donning a sweater in the early morning because I was shivering! I have been listening to the weather people patter on and on about how disappointing it is that summer hasn't arrived in Los Angeles yet. Yep, I've been liking things just the way they are. I just hope that those dog days don't hit us in September and October.

The La Cañada school board voted unanimously Tuesday to add Advanced Placement Music Theory to an already rigorous list of available AP courses at La Cañada High School. The course will be available during the coming school year, said Supt. Jim Stratton, and will join about 15 other AP classes offered at LCHS 9/12, with multiple sections of each course. The exact number of such courses fluctuates year to year. "It would be a course that is keeping with the proposed content from the college board itself," Stratton said.

Today we have the Music in the Park concerts to entertain us on summer Sundays. In my youth, our family had to venture no farther than our front porch to get a free concert in the open air: the mellifluous sounds of the musical Marsteller family, practicing wind and brass instruments, often together, in their Paulette Place living room. The Marstellers' open windows and a quiet neighborhood not yet assaulted by the noise of the soon-to-be-built 210 Freeway made for a great listening experience.
