About the Performers: Eva BenekeA native of East-Berlin, Eva Beneke is an exciting and versatile musician. She is an internationally acclaimed soloist, chamber musician, teacher and arranger, known for "refinement of tone, and a palpable energy" (Scott Tennant, L.A.G.Q.). In addition to numerous prizes at international guitar festivals, Eva is an unstoppable performer. Highlights of her career include appearances with the German Symphony Orchestra under Kent Nagano, invitations to international festivals in Peru, Germany, Lithuania, the U.S. and Canada, and a live performance with Carrie Underwood at the 2010 American Country Music Awards. Eva Beneke's debut CD, Coming Home, was released to wide critical acclaim in 2010. Her performances have been broadcasted internationally. Beneke's arrangements for guitar ensemble are gaining international recognition. The American publishing house Clearnote Music published two of her guitar compositions in 2009. Eva began her studies at the Berlin University of Arts with Martin Rennert. She then received the prestigious solo artist diploma at the Franz Liszt Hochschule in Weimar where she trained extensively with Thomas Müller-Pering, one of Germany's most influential guitarists. In 2012, Beneke received a doctorate with honors from the University of Southern California in Los Angeles, after having studied with Grammy® winning guitarist Scott Tennant and jazz-guitar legend Bruce Forman. Learn more about Eva Beneke at her website, www.evabeneke.com. LeChic Duo Renowned classical guitarists Iren Arutyunyan and Sofia Gleeson have combined their talents to form the LeChic Guitar Duo. Iren and Sofia met studying guitar at the Flora L. Thornton School of Music at the University of Southern California in 2009, and went on to form this cutting-edge duo in 2010. Receiving instruction from such names as Scott Tennant, William Kanengiser, Martha Masters, Brian Head and Pepe Romero, the LeChic Duo has flourished since its founding. The LeChic Duo was chosen to participate in a live taping at Guitar Salon International in late 2011, which led to their performance at the 2012 National Association for Music Manufacturers Convention in Anaheim, California. Since then, LeChic has represented Cordoba Guitars, and took part in the Melodee Music Acoustifest XIII in Sterling, Virginia.

Giving and Giving, Then Giving Some More

2014 is almost over. Wednesday, Dec. 17, the Jewish Festival of Light, Hanukkah, begins. We are in our last week of Sag and last two weeks of December. Sunday, Dec. 21 is winter Solstice, as the sun enters Capricorn (3:30 p.m. for the west coast). Soon after, the Capricorn new moon occurs (5:36 p.m. for the west coast)—the last new moon of 2014. Sunday morning Uranus in Aries (revolution, revelation) is stationary direct (retro since July 22). Uranus/Aries create things new and needed to anchor the new culture and civilization (Aquarius). We will see revolutionary change in 2015. Capricorn new moon, building-the-personality seed thought, is, “Let ambition rule and let the door to initiation and freedom stand wide (open).” Capricorn is a gate—where matter returns to spirit. But the gate is unseen until the Ajna Center (third eye), Diamond Light of Direction, opens. Winter solstice is the longest day of darkness of the year. The sun’s rays resting at the Tropic of Capricorn (southern hemisphere) symbolize the Christ (soul’s) light piercing the heart of the Earth, remaining there for three days, till Holy Night (midnight Thursday morning). Then the sun’s light begins to rise. It is the birth of the new light (holy child) for the world. A deep calm and stillness pervades the world.The entire planet is revivified, re-spiritualized. All hearts beating reflect this Light. And so throughout the Earth there’s a radiant “impress” (impressions, pictures) given to humanity of the World Mother and her Child. The star Sirius (love/direction) and the constellation Virgo the mother shines above. For gift giving, give to those in need. Give and give and then give some more. This creates the new template of giving and sharing for the new world.

    Fortino Winery’s Intriguing Charbono

    At the opening celebration of the new Santa Clara Wine Trail in August, one of the wineries we visited was Fortino. This is where I first tasted their intriguing estate-grown Charbono—a varietal that is one of the rarest in California, with only 80 acres grown statewide.
