Please join us for our upcoming Driftwood Consort show! "Galanterie" (Consert 1) May 19th, 3:00pm. St. John's Episcopal Church (Aptos) "Galanterie" features a program of elegant, late 18th century selections that span the aesthetic arc from baroque luminary Johann Sebastian Bach to that great pioneer of the classical era, Joseph Haydn. As Bach senior's intricate ("baroque") style of writing began to fall out of favor, younger composers responded with a new trend towards fluid melodies and ornamentation, paving the path the the translucent classical style. We will ride the tide of that time. Starting with Bach and ending with Haydn, this program highlights "galant" works by Bach's two younger sons, a trio by Graf, and famous London gambist Abel. Performing are Lars Johannesson and Alissa Roedig (18th century wooden flutes), Amy Brodo (cello and viola da gamba), and Jonathan Rhodes Lee (harpsichord). Driftwood Consort is an ensemble with a passion for performing music from the Renaissance through Romantic period on period instruments. Under the artistic direction of Lars Johannesson and Alissa Roedig, the ensemble brings together musicians from the greater Bay Area who play with groups ranging from Monterey to Berkeley and beyond.

Location : St. John's Episcopal Church, 125 Canterbury Dr, Aptos
Contact : Lars Johannesson

Making a Scene

As it celebrates its 30th year, Santa Cruz County’s Open Studios is one of the most successful in the country—and a make-or-break event for many local artists


A Ritual & Initiation

The Pope has come and gone, but his loving presence ignited new hope and goodness in many. While he was in NYC, China’s ruler arrived in Washington D.C. East (China) and West (Rome), meeting in the middle, under Libra, balancing sign of Right Relations. The Pope arrived at Fall Equinox. Things initiated at Fall Equinox are birthed at Winter Solstice. The Pope’s presence was a ritual, an initiation rite—like the Dalai Lama’s visits—offering prayers, teachings and blessings. Rituals anchor God’s plan into the world, initiating us to new realities, new rules. The Pope’s presence brings forth the Soul of the United States, its light piercing the veils of materialism. The Pope’s visit changed things. New questions arise, new reasons for living. A new wave of emerging life fills the air. Like a cocoon shifting, wings becoming visible. The winds are different now. Calling us to higher vision, moral values, virtues that reaffirm and offer hope for humanity. A changing of the guard has occurred. Appropriately, this is the week of the Jewish Festival of Sukkoth (’til Oct. 4), when we build temporary homes (little huts in nature), entering into a harvest of prayer and thanksgiving, understanding our fragile and impermanent existences. We are summoned to reflect upon our lives, our humanity, our nature, our spirit and each other. Offering gratitude, becoming a magnet for others. We observe. We see the needs. We love more.
