Redwood Symphony, which performs at Canada College, is an important group to add to your list! Their concerts are engaging, reviews are top-notch, and it's a warm, friendly group. Kids 17 and under are free with adult. Info at

I left this on Rebecca Wallace's voice mail but will repeat here that I would have preferred Josh Roseman on the cover of your Fall Arts preview given that Etienne Charles is not appearing until the spring. Josh is coming in November. Also, Josh has about 10 more years experience than Etienne, although I think both shows are recommendable and thematically linked in that they both play music influenced by their respective Caribbean heritage. Josh is also a former member of the SFJAZZ collective and was spotted numerous times at Printers Ink in recent years --he was a part-time Palo Altan.

Kudos to Jenny Bilfield and Stanford Lively Arts, or should I say Lively Up Your Arts?!
