Hi-Desert Star Column #203

Our little Community held the monthly Board meeting at the Center last Saturday morning. We enjoyed an uneventful session and took care of business at hand. I rushed off to the Blakbox Theater in Joshua Tree immediately after the meeting, to join other Copper Mountain College Multimedia students backstage. All our equipment was already set up, because we spent hours the previous Thursday, making sure everything was working properly and ready to go.

We filmed the matinee Christmas performance on Saturday afternoon. The Joshua Tree Philharmonic Orchestra, affectionately known as JPHIL, expertly conducted by Jarrod Radnich, put on a wonderful performance and we got some really good footage. Part of the entertainment was the “live mix” we were able to project onto the screen behind the orchestra, showing live shots of the performers and of the audience themselves. At 7pm, we filmed the evening performance, which also went flawlessly. Not surprisingly, all the JPHIL Christmas performances were sold out. This was the second year that I was involved in the filming of the Christmas Show and I continue to be very impressed with JPHIL’s professionalism and standard of play. Jolly good show all of you!

The Fall 2014 semester at Copper Mountain College ended last Wednesday and School’s Out until January 12th 2015. We are so proud of our very own Community College and what a great holiday gift: send yourself or a loved one to College! We have a beautiful Campus, great Staff; fabulous Faculty and all sorts of programs to help you, including financial aid. Register for the Spring 2015 semester right now and I’ll see you at School next year!

Big show going on tonight, at The Palms Bar and Restaurant on Amboy road in downtown Wonder Valley. High Noon Whiskey and Friends will be performing for you and, of course, our all-time-favorites, The Sibleys, are playing too. Great food and drinks, with no cover charge: the Show starts at 8pm.

May you enjoy your Holidays, however you choose to celebrate! I wish you lots of love; warmth; full tummies and happy hearts this Season. Stay well!
