Livermore Art Association Spring Art Show
The LAA annual Spring Art Show is coming to The Barn. This is the biggest exhibit of the year for the Livermore Art Association, having the most entrants and the most works. It is open to the public and free to attend. Most artwork is for sale, and there will be an additional sales room with original art, crafts, cards and prints.

The Commission for the Arts will be selecting seven works, one from each category, for a City of Livermore Special Award. After the show, these works will be displayed in City Hall for one month. This year also brings an exciting change for the artists. Instead of having a single judge for the show, all the entrants will be judging themselves. Every artist will vote for their favorite in each category. Awards will be based on popular vote. The public is invited to a festive reception on Saturday, March 31st, 7:00pm - 9:00 pm with appetizers, local wines and live music. The awards ceremony will be held at 7:30 pm.

Broadway Chorus - Lights...Camera...Sing-Along
Broadway Chorus, a Tri-Valley community chorus, will perform "Lights...Camera...Sing-along" on March 30 - April 1. Breaking from tradition in which the audience sits passively, in this production the audience is encouraged to sing along on some of the songs with the chorus. Best of all, the audience is not required to carry the tune!

The music should be familiar to anyone who has some exposure to your favorite movies. Songs such as Moon River, Swingin' on a Star, and Hakuna Matata are well known to many people. Singing is not required; those not familiar with a particular number can simply enjoy the show.

The show will also feature the Broadway Kids Chorus, made up of local children in grades 1-8, directed by Jenny Matteucci and Glen Riggs. The audience will even get a chance to sing along with the Broadway Kids!

The show is directed by Jenny Matteucci, accompanied by Daniel Lockert, and produced by JoAnn Loitz.

The three performances will be held on Friday, March 30 at 8 PM, Saturday, March 31 at 8 PM and Sunday, April 1 at 2 PM at Amador Theater, 1155 Santa Rita Road in Pleasanton.

Tickets are available online at www.trivalleyrep.org or at the Amador Theater box office on the show days. Ticket prices are adults 18+ $20, seniors 60+ $17, juniors under 18 $10. There is a 10% discount when tickets are purchased at the door for those who hold a Broadway Chorus "business card" available from any Broadway Chorus member. For more information visit the chorus website, www.broadwaychorus.org, or call 925.462.2121

Paws to Read April 11, 18, 25

7:35-8:00pm

Main Library

Is your child experiencing difficulties reading or simply needs some encouragement to enjoy reading? If so, the Paws to Read program, sponsored by the Livermore Public Library and the Valley Humane Society, might be the solution.

The Paws to Read program is a free program that matches elementary-aged beginner readers with trained and certified dogs in a non-judgmental environment. For 25 minutes, your child will read to their furry friend with the dog’s owner quietly looking on to help with any tricky words. Programs of this type have been successful across the country, and testimonials from Livermore parents have been extremely positive.

The last series for Spring, 2012, will start in April at the Civic Center Library as follows:  Wednesdays, April 11-May 30, 7 p.m. (two sessions, 7-7:25 and 7:35-8 p.m.). Registration for this series begins Monday, April 2nd.

Children may register for up to three sessions during the series, as space allows. Drop-ins may be accepted on a first-come, first-served basis. Participating children should not be fearful of dogs or have allergies to pets.
