I Love You, You're Perfect, Now Change - Tri-Valley Repertory Theatre
I Love You, You're Perfect, Now Change the laugh-inducing, award-winning musical comedy about love in the suburbs is often described as "Seinfeld set to music". It's a hilarious look at love and relationships that is as touching and insightful as it is humorous. Four actors play over forty roles scaling the dizzying spectrum of male/female relationships. The trials and tribulations of being single, dating, marriage, loss, and heartbreak and everything in the relationship process that you have ever secretly thought about, but were afraid to admit, are cleverly explored. It is hailed as the most "proposal-friendly" musical, as there have been 61 wedding proposals at the show, all of which resulted in yeses!

Join us to: - Celebrate the hero within each child. Hear their voices and see their vision of what can be! - Honor the adult heroes who are forging new relationships, practices and programs to bring arts learning to youth. - Be a hero and advocate for arts learning for every child, in every school, every day. District 1 Featured Event Champions for the Arts: A Celebration of Our Regional Arts Heroes A special evening honoring community art heroes and showcasing music, performing and visual arts by students from Livermore, Pleasanton, Sunol & Fremont.

Battlefield Band

At the Bankhead Theater

Battlefield Band
Under the banner “Forward With Scotland’s Past,” Battlefield Band plays Scottish music of rare passion and joy. Inspired by their rich heritage of Celtic music and fired by the strength of today’s Scottish cultural scene, Battlefield Band mixes the old songs with new self-penned material, and performs them on a unique fusion of ancient and modern instruments – bagpipe, fiddle, synthesizer, guitar, cittern, flute, bodhran and accordion.

Think you've heard Mozart's choral masterpiece "Requiem" before? Perhaps at a performance years ago? Or was it while watching the Academy Award winning film "Amadeus" which exposed Mozart's haunting "Requiem" to thousands more people than ever before?

It's less likely that you've heard the version the Valley Concert Chorale will perform on March 7th at Livermore 's Bankhead Theater.

What makes this performance of Requiem unique? The Chorale's Artistic Director and Conductor John Emory Bush explains.

"Mozart never finished the Requiem before his death," explains Bush. "The version known to the general public was completed by Mozart's assistant Franz Süssmayr. Many musicians have attempted to complete the Requiem as Mozart would have intended, removing deficiencies introduced by Süssmayr. We will perform the most recent completion by Robert Levin, a highly recognized Mozart scholar and theorist, and professor of Humanities at Harvard University ."

The Levin version was premiered in August 1991, by Helmuth Rilling at the European Music Festival in Stuttgart , Germany . That performance was met with a standing ovation.

So what specifically has changed with the Levin version?

"The haunting and dramatic 'Lacrimosa' was retouched and now leads into a non-modulating Amen fugue," says Bush. "And, there is a newly composed 'Hosanna' fugue, modeled after Mozart's C-minor Mass. Both are two excellent examples of how Levin's version has created a unique and exciting Requiem."

Accompanied by a full orchestra and professional soloists, with over 100 voices in the chorus, this performance is one not to miss.

Die Fledermaus - Livermore Valley Opera
Die Fledermaus (“The Bat”) is a delightful operetta by Austrian composer Johann Strauss, full of lively music and a witty, humorous plot. Eisenstein prepares to bid his wife Rosalinda farewell. Through the incompetence of his lawyer, he has been sentenced to spend eight days in the town jail. Although the situation is seemingly tragic, Eisenstein, his wife, and their ambitious maid, Adele, have devised their individual ways to get the most out of the situation! The evening continues with a magnificent ball, a drunken jailer, new friends and relationships. The opera ends with one of the most famous drinking songs in opera.

Opening Night Gala, March 13, 5:00pm
The Opening Night Gala, held in the Madden Plaza and lobby of the Bankhead, affords the opportunity to meet and socialize with other opera patrons and LVO personnel. Appetizers and wine will be served, amid a string quartet playing from the balcony. The LVO Directors—Artistic, Stage, and Music—will make brief remarks and answer questions about the making of Die Fledermaus.

Los Angeles Guitar Quartet
Recognized as one of America’s premier instrumental ensembles and winner of a 2008 Grammy Award, the L.A. Guitar Quartet is one of the most charismatic and versatile groups performing today. Known as the LAGQ, the four virtuosi who comprise the group—John Dearman, William Kanengiser, Scott Tennant, and Matthew Greif—bring a new energy to the concert stage with their eclectic programs and dynamic musical interplay. Their inventive, critically-acclaimed transcriptions of concert masterworks provide a fresh look at music of the past, while their interpretations of works from the contemporary and world-music realms continually break new ground. The Los Angeles Times says, “The world’s hottest classical ensemble or its tightest pop band? However it helps you to think about the LAGQ, keep the emphasis on superlatives for its unrivaled joy, technical élan, and questing spirits.” The LAGQ continues to set new standards for the guitar quartet medium.
