If you didn't get a chance to buy tickets to OLMC's auction dinner (and are thus left with nothing to do this Saturday, since no tickets will be sold at the door!), you might be interested in hearing The Story Orchestra perform Brother Sun, Sister Moon Saturday night at St. John Episcopal Church in Petaluma. The promotional materials describe it as follows:
"The story Brother Sun Sister Moon is a Theatrical Collage of Word, Music and Dance featuring great works of art from many cultures and eras, combined with new original works and dance. It is the story of a realization and the transformation of a human being, of Francis of Assisi. This is not a religious work, but one that celebrates the possibility of awareness and change in order to live a life that is Good. This is very much a story of not only our time, when we are seeking sustainable solutions, Peace, the Beautiful and the Positive, but this is a story of all times and of all cultures. The Story Orchestra features voice actors, singers, instrumentalists and dancers. This is a minimally amplified event in the beautiful Cram Hall of St. John's Episcopal Church in Petaluma Ca.
40 Fifth St., Petaluma. Tickets are $17-20 sliding scale. Tickets will be available at the door though we highly recommend making reservations, as tickets may go fast. Reservations can be made by calling 707-795-3545."
