A sample of our upcoming programs

 
Unfortunately, Frank McCulloch had to cancel his appearance at OASIS for his performance on December 12. Instead, we will have the group Los Primos perform for us!

71 - Friday Recital: Los Primos Duo
Los Primos Duo are seasoned musicians who perform the traditional music of the Mariachi and Trio Romantico with a passion and fresh perspective. Combining elements of old Mexican folk music and American oldies, they perform a unique melding of musical styles. Enjoy songs such as “Sabor a Mi” or “Malagueña Salerosa" -- and in addition, they have promised to throw in a few New Mexican folk songs! They will also talk with the audience about their music. Los Primos Duo actually are primos (Spanish for “cousins”) Carlos Chavez (vocals and requinto) and Juan Lucero (vocals, guitar).
Friday, December 12, 1-2:30pm at OASIS
 
57 - Poetry Writing with George Ovitt
"George Ovitt's poems smell like Earth to me -- rich, desolate, crowded, pungent, delicate, bitter, sweet, solid. They work the space between a man standing on a platform waiting for a train and another sleeping in a cardboard bed under the tracks. But these poems never really leave the unmeasured world. Instead they split the difference, leaving the reader with a sense of what is truly beautiful."
- Author Brady Peterson
In this class, Dr. George Ovitt will provide an overview of his poems, talk about how poetry creates meaning, and discuss techniques for getting started writing and possibly publishing one's own poems.
Monday, November 24, 1-2:30pm at OASIS
