This enchanted moment was captured at the Miller Library this past August. The majestic Redwoods of Big Sur seemed to protect and cradle us as we witnessed a reading of the poetry of Hafiz by the legendary Penny Vieragge Violinist, Edwin Huizinga, no stranger to Big Sur or to SandBox, responded to ever nuance and inflection of Penny's inspired and spontaneous reading. Creating a blanket of sound that hovered in the air as if a mystical veil were placed above it all was Deva Munay playing her alchemy crystal singing bowls. I look forward to this experience being created in SandBox on Dec. 13th in celebration of Penny's 95th year.

The Los Angeles Guitar Quartet graced us with a spectacular performance the afternoon of Sunday, Nov. 20th. There was not an empty seat to be found. These legends who defined the genre took our breath away and left us speechless. Thank you to Mark Mancina for making their visit here possible. It was a celebration of community, pushing the reset button for all who were present. Together we were witness to and contributed to a moment of history. The uncanny acoustics of SandBox allowed us to feel and hear even the most subtle nuances in the ensembles collaboration. The audience could partake in every punctuation, sigh, gesture, the ways in which they seemed to finish each others sentences, as only a long term relationship can achieve. Thank you Scott Tennant, Bill Kanengiser, John Dearman and Matt Greif for the gift of sharing your years of experience with us. And to the many new audience members that joined us at SandBox, it was great to see you and we look forward to welcoming you back soon.

The program you will hear on Nov. 10 will be shared with audiences on the east coast on Nov. 6th. This is a sweet little article about the program and the musicians.
