Eva Beneke / LeChic Duo Guitar Concert on Friday, March 22 Stanton Center, Museum of Monterey 5 Custom House Plaza, Monterey, CA On Saturday March 23 a master class will be conducted by Eva Beneke. The cost for the master class is $40. Sponsors include Hill Guitar Co., Friedman Eye Center, and Mark Mancina. 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. More information about the LeChic Duo available at their website, www.lechicduo.com.

The Peace Equation

Sunday is the United Nations’ International Day of Peace, a global peace-building day when nations, leaders, governments, communities and individuals are invited to end conflict, cease hostilities, creat 24 hours of non-violence and promote goodwill. Monday is Autumn equinox as the Sun enters Libra (right relations with all of life). The Soul Year now begins. We work in the dark part of the year (Persephone underground) preparing for the new light of winter solstice. Tuesday to Wednesday is the Virgo new moon festival. We know two things about peace. “The absence of war does not signify peace.” And “Peace is an ongoing process.” In its peace-building emphasis, the UNIDP, through education, attempts to create a “culture of peace, understanding and tolerance”. Esoterically we are reminded of the peace equation: “Intentions for goodwill (and acting upon this intention) create right relations with all earth’s kingdoms which create (the ongoing process of) peace on earth.” At noon on Sunday, in all time zones, millions of participating groups will observe a moment of silence for peace on earth. Bells will ring, candles will be lit, and doves released as the New Group of World Servers recite the Great Invocation (humanity’s mantram of direction). To connect with others around the world see www.cultureofpeace.org    Let us join together with the mother (Virgo). Goodwill to all, let peace prevail on earth. The dove is the symbol for the day.

    Best of Santa Cruz County

    The 2013 Santa Cruz County Readers' Poll and Critics’ Picks It’s our biggest issue of the year, and in it, your votes—more than 6,500 of them—determined the winners of The Best of Santa Cruz County Readers’ Poll. New to the long list of local restaurants, shops and other notables that captured your interest: Best Beer Selection, Best Locally Owned Business, Best Customer Service and Best Marijuana Dispensary. In the meantime, many readers were ever so chatty online about potential new categories. Some of the suggestions that stood out: Best Teen Program and Best Web Design/Designer. But what about: Dog Park, Church, Hotel, Local Farm, Therapist (I second that!) or Sports Bar—not to be confused with Bra. Our favorite suggestion: Best Act of Kindness—one reader noted Café Gratitude and the free meals it offered to the Santa Cruz Police Department in the aftermath of recent crimes. Perhaps some of these can be woven into next year’s ballot, so stay tuned. In the meantime, enjoy the following pages and take note of our Critics’ Picks, too, beginning on page 91. A big thanks for voting—and for reading—and an even bigger congratulations to all of the winners. Enjoy.  -Greg Archer, EditorBest of Santa Cruz County Readers’ Poll INDEX

     

    Santa Clara Wine Trail

    My memories of growing up in England include my mother pouring port after Sunday dinner—and sometimes a glass of sherry before dinner. My family didn’t drink much wine back then, but we certainly made up for it with the port and sherry.
