October’s significance as Filipino American History Month is due to the first recorded presence of Filipinos in the continental United States when on October 18, 1587, “Luzones Indios” came ashore from the Spanish galleon Nuestra Senora de Esparanza and landed at what is now Morro Bay, California.
In November of 2009, both the United States House of Representatives and Senate passed laws – House Resolution 780 and Senate Resolution 298 respectively, officially recognizing October as Filipino American History Month in the United States.

Pops Concert - Livermore-Amador Symphony  -
Pops Groovin' in the '60s.

The Livermore-Amador Symphony Guild presents Pops concerts at which the audiences can enjoy light classical symphonic and pops music in a casual setting. After many years at “the Barn” in Livermore, since 2010 the Pops venue has been the ballroom of the Livermore community center.

Robert Livermore Community Center,
4444 East Avenue, Livermore
The audience sits at round tables in the Cresta Blanca Room at the Robert Livermore Community Center. Doors open at 7 p.m., and the concert begins at 8 p.m. Food may be brought in but no drinks; wine, beer, and soft drinks are sold as part of this fundraiser for the Symphony.

The Livermore-Amador Symphony provides the music at Pops, with vocal soloists and a few audience sing-alongs. Many in the audience bring something to eat, from snacks to group potluck meals to elaborate dinners. (Beverage sales at Pops support the Symphony.) Members of the audience (and of the orchestra) are encouraged to wear costumes in keeping with the theme. (Usually about half the audience and almost the entire orchestra come in costume.) Each concert has a theme (like 2002’s “POPS on Broadway,” 1995’s “POPS Plays the ’40s,” or 2003’s “POPS—Dreams of California”).

Michael Mullen-Tria Soli/Tior of One
Never pre-recorded, always immediate and created fresh, the masterful Michael Mullen makes live looping an art form. Experiencing this solo musician building his Tria Soli “ensemble” group gives the audience a unique and powerful connection with old chamber favorites – You may have heard them a thousand times, but never like this. Then, in Trio of One, the highly talented Michael Mullen brings to life the music of his Celtic roots, creating a full jig-blasting band in front of your eyes. In the end, you’ll understand why his old Tempest mates dubbed him “The Mad Fiddler”.

Music and Lyrics by Lin-Manuel Miranda | Book by Quiara Alegría Hudes | Conceived By Lin-Manuel Miranda

Winner of the 2008 Tony Award for Best Musical. Welcome to the kind of musical that comes around once in a generation. A musical that builds on the best traditions of theatre while forging into fresh new territory. A musical about the importance of home, family and finding where you belong.

IN THE HEIGHTS tells the universal story of a vibrant community in New York's Washington Heights neighborhood - a place where the coffee from the corner bodega is light and sweet, the windows are always open and the breeze carries the rhythm of three generations of music. It's a community on the brink of change, full of hopes, dreams and pressures, where the biggest struggles can be deciding which traditions you take with you, and which ones you leave behind. IN THE HEIGHTS is the winner of the 2008 Tony Awards for Best Musical, Best Score, Best Choreography and Best Orchestrations.
