Let’s suppose you’ve just finished dinner at one of Point Reyes’s fine restaurants. It is still early and you are thinking about things to do, like listening to a good musical performance. Unlike the city, everything is close by. All you have to do is drive a few blocks to the Dance Palace. No parking problems. If you are staying at our inn, when the performance is over, it is just a few minutes drive to get back.
We are very fortunate in Point Reyes to have The Dance Palace, a non-profit community center which provides a wide variety of educational, cultural and community services to children, adults and seniors. The Dance Palace has developed into one of the most active community facilities in the Bay Area. Because of its stature, the Dance Palace is able to attract well know musicians to Point Reyes. Here are some upcoming musical performances at the Dance Palace.
Saturday, December 10, 2011 at 8:00 pm – The group KITKA performs “Wintersongs”. “Few things evoke the magic of the winter holidays as the transcendent splendor of the human voice raised in song.” KITKA is a vocal group which sings seasonal music, largely derived from ethnic sources of Eastern Europe. So their sound is unique and a perfect way to get into the spirit of the holiday season.
Saturday, January 14, 2012 at 8:00 pm – Piano virtuoso George Winston will perform his own style of melodic instrumental music which has its roots in R&B, jazz, blues and rock. It is wonderful that the Dance Palace can attract an artist of his stature in our small community. His latest solo piano release is “Love Will Come – the music of Vince; Guaraldi, Vol. 2”. Saturday, January 28, 2012 at 8:00 pm – Want a little spice in your life? Brasil Guitar Duo brings the pizzazz of South American music to Point Reyes . Classical Guitar magazine has this to say about this duo: “The maturity of musicianship and technical virtuosity…is simply outstanding”.
So plan now for an enchanting winter evening of fine music in Point Reyes.
