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.

Best of Santa Cruz County 2014

The 2014 Santa Cruz County Readers' Poll Come on in, and have a look around. There’s a lot to see—hundreds of winners selected by thousands of GT readers across Santa Cruz County. So if some of this looks familiar, it’s probably because you helped make it happen. But there are always new things to discover, too—you could go to a different winner or runner-up every day in the Food and Drink category alone, and you’d be booked just about until next year’s Best of Santa Cruz County issue comes out.

 

Something Essential Disappears

Lunar and solar eclipses follow one another. Lunar eclipses occur at full moons, and solar eclipses at new moons. Two weeks ago at the full moon we had the blood red moon—a total lunar eclipse (the next one is Oct. 8). On Monday night, April 28 (new moon), as the Sun, Moon and Earth align, a solar eclipse (Sun obscured) occurs. Eclipses signify something irrevocably is changed in our world. The Sun is our essential life force. Monday’s new moon, 9 degrees Taurus, is also an annular solar eclipse when the Moon moves centrally in front of the Sun, yet does not cover the Sun completely. The Sun's outer edges, still visible, form a “ring of fire” around the Moon.

 

Sugar: The New Tobacco?

Proposed bill would require warning labels on sugary drinks Will soda and other saccharine libations soon come with a health warning? They will if it’s up to our state senator, Bill Monning (D-Carmel). On Feb. 27, Monning proposed first-of-its-kind legislation that would require a consumer warning label be placed on sugar-sweetened beverages sold in California. SB 1000, also known as the Sugar-Sweetened Beverages Safety Warning Act, was proposed to provide vital information to consumers about the harmful effects of consuming sugary drinks, such as sodas, sports drinks, energy drinks, and sweetened teas.

    Palate-Stretching 101

    A wine education with Soif’s experts As a veteran of many weekend wine “seminars” at Soif, I have to confess that I’ve never known less (going in) and learned more (coming out) than I did last week at the Spanish Wine Tasting with ace rep Brian Greenwood. These are classy, casual events and it’s hard to imagine having this much flavor fun anywhere for $20.

     

    Martin Ranch Winery

    Sauvignon Blanc 2011 One of my favorite wines is Sauvignon Blanc, and this one made by Martin Ranch is particularly lovely. Bright, crisp and refreshing, it’s perfect to pair with fish and shellfish—and good for picnics as it has an easy screw-cap bottle. There’s nothing worse than setting down your blanket, pulling out your sandwiches—and then realizing you don’t have a corkscrew.

     

    Foodie File: Red Apple Cafe

    Breakfast takes center stage at Gracia Krakauer's Red Apple Cafe Before they moved to Aptos, Gracia and her husband Dan Krakauer would visit friends in Santa Cruz County and eat at the Red Apple Café all the time. Then they moved up here from Santa Monica five years ago, and bought the Aptos location (there’s a separate one in Watsonville) from the family who owned it for two decades.

     

    How would you feel about a tech industry boom in Santa Cruz?

    I feel like it would ruin the small old-town feeling of Santa Cruz. It wouldn’t be the same Surf City kind of vacation town that it is. Antoinette BennettSanta Cruz | Construction Management
