Sierra Toyota Scion Concert Series

Banner_1

One part dancing, two parts music, delicious food, and a whole lot of outdoor fun is the recipe that makes the Sierra Toyota Scion Concert Series the best way to welcome the arrival of summer to the Antelope Valley. On Thursday, June 16th, the City of Lancaster will kick off the Summer Concert Series with “A Night of Wine & Music” in Downtown Lancaster.

“People have been visiting downtown Lancaster for more than a century,” said Lancaster Mayor R. Rex Parris. “Today, retail outlets, professional services, and fine restaurants continue to make downtown a natural gathering spot. On Thursday, the City is providing yet another reason to make the trip, as patrons can spend a warm summer night enjoying great music, sampling wonderful wines, and feasting on our many downtown delights.”

Pair the musical sounds with a wine tasting hosted on the bar patio or bring your own lawn chair to just relax and enjoy the music. Local restaurant favorites, including the Lemon Leaf Café and Bex Bar and Grill,  will provide tasty meals on the go which can be enjoyed as you listen to the evening’s entertainment.

“We are very pleased to be in a partnership with the City of Lancaster.  The inaugural season of the Sierra Toyota Concert Series promises to bring great entertainment downtown. This is an exciting opportunity to promote Sierra Toyota as a premier auto sales facility in the Antelope Valley and to meet our customers in a relaxed and festive environment,” said Paul Ondo, General Manager, Sierra Toyota Scion of Lancaster.

                Meet at the Bandstand throughout the summer to enjoy the sounds of local favorites, including Wild Side performing on July 14th; the Queen Nation Tribute Band on July 21st; and the Runaway Train Band who will close out the concert series on August 18th.

For more information about the Sierra Toyota Scion Concert Series, please contact the City of Lancaster Parks, Recreation & Arts Department at (661)723-6077.

Description

Author Event: Zoë Sharp

zoe sharpCome to the library and meet Zoë Sharp, author of the Charlie Fox series.

A starred review in Booklist called her newest novel, The Fourth Day, ‘Must reading for fans of action-packed, hard-edged thrillers.’

About the series:

Charlotte ‘Charlie’ Fox has been described as a female version of Lee Child’s Jack Reacher. Like Reacher, Charlie’s background is military. She was a first-class shot who was selected for Special Forces training, but that’s where it all went horribly wrong. Chucked out of the army in disgrace, Charlie drifts through a variety of jobs in the early books, teaching self-defence, working nightclub doors, and house-sitting on a run-down housing estate. But then she meets up again with a spectre from her army past − one of her old training instructors, Sean Meyer.

Sean is now back in civvy street himself, involved in the dangerous world of exclusive close protection. After he asks Charlie to go and find out what happened to one of his men who was killed at a shady bodyguard training school in Germany, he offers Charlie a job and, after a rocky start, she embarks on a new career as a bodyguard.

Whatever her own misgivings − and the doubts of her family − being a bodyguard is the perfect legitimate outlet for someone with her lethal abilities.

Read on and find out why the Chicago Tribune described Charlie as: ‘Ill-tempered, aggressive and borderline psychotic, Fox is also compassionate, introspective and highly principled: arguably one of the most enigmatic − and coolest − heroines in contemporary genre fiction.’

Calmus

WhenFri, March 18, 8pm – 10pm
WhereLancaster Performing Arts Center 750 West Lancaster Blvd., Lancaster CA 93534 (map)
Descriptionhttp://lpac.org/ Excellent and unusual, Calmus is a modern a cappella ensemble that offers the unique combination of a pure soprano voice with four male voices ranging from bass to countertenor. Calmus explores a wide variety of arrangements; including contemporary works by composers such as Fredo Jung (“The Year in Song”), Andre Asriel and Ludwig Bohme. Technically stunning singers, the interpretive talents and musicality of Calmus are matchless. They infuse their singing with wonderful lyricism and exquisite expressiveness.
