2013

May 16 through August 31

Park yourself The city of Santa Maria Recreation and Parks Department’s dedication to public art runs deep, exemplified by the annual “Concert in the Park” series, which this year has again added more concerts to the bill. Up to 15 now, the series features performances in such favorite local parks as Preisker and the Rotary Centennial, as well as during community events at the McClelland Street Corridor, near the Santa Maria Public Library. Bands performing include such local favorites as Unfinished Business (pictured), which will be opening the series with a July 4 concert at the Santa Maria Fairpark. After that, the series continues with weeks of great local groups performing outdoors.

Every year, nationwide, people celebrate America and its dedication to independence and freedom with barbecues, parties, and—most audibly—fireworks! Though Santa Maria has strict laws regarding certain kinds of fireworks, the Santa Maria Fairpark scratches the big explosion itch every year with a spectacular display that illuminates the night sky. The Fairpark will also include many Fourth of July activities during the day in preparation for the dazzling show that begins once night falls.

PHOTO COURTESY OF THE SANTA BARBARA COUNTY FAIR

Fair with a chance of fun It’s hard to believe that the Santa Barbara County Fair is coming up on its 122nd year. But considering the rich history of local agriculture, it makes sense. The fair is a special community event where everyone can have a good time, but it also serves as a yearly convergence of produce companies and livestock competitors either selling their wares or competing for a blue-ribbon prize. And the favorite collection of carnival games, rides, and displays makes the fair a great family event. The festivities run July 10 through 14 and feature a live concert by Clay Walker on July 10, 38 Special on July 13, and “Fiesta Day” on July 14.

Rodeo Stuff PHOTOS BY STEVE E. MILLER

Don’t get

bucked

The Elks Rodeo features three rodeo performances: two at 7 p.m. on May 31 and June 1, and the last one on June 2 at 2 p.m. at the Elks Unocal Event Center off of Highway 101 at Santa Maria Way. The events include such favored rodeo competitions as bronco riding, bull riding, roping, and more. These white-knuckle competitions will feature some of the best bull riders in the country, all trying to spend as much time as they can on a powerful, flailing animal.

Back in the saddle

The historic Santa Maria Elks Rodeo Parade is in its 70th year of community competition, showcasing, and celebration. The event includes the Beard-A-Reno Dinner event on May 18 at 5 p.m. at the Elks Lodge preceding the rodeo. The rodeo itself will include several events at the Elks Unocal Event Center off of the Highway 101 Santa Maria Way exit from May 30 through June 2. A Rodeo Dance is every night of the event. The Rodeo Parade starts at 9 a.m. on June 1 on Broadway in Santa Maria. More info: 925-4125, 922-6006, or loretta@elks1538.org.

SKILLED SINGERS: The Coastal Voices, directed by Margaret Nelson, has prepared a program that features songs by such favorites as George Gershwin and Hoagy Carmichael.

Around Me Honey,’ which is definitely jazz.” While jazz was a bourgeoning genre, more traditionally tonal songs got popular by being silly, using clever wordplay, and evoking a quaint sense of novelty. “We had a time in the 1960s where we had a whole bunch of songs that were silly, like ‘The Giant Purple People Eater,’” Nelson said, “but there was a time in the early 1900s when they had a lot of these silly word songs.” One selection the choir is performing is a medley of nearly 40 different Tin Pan Alley novelty tunes, something that certainly illustrates the publishing district’s output. Many of the selections the choir is performing have been arranged by modern composers, so the music won’t be a period performance, but a remix of favorite old tunes in the jazz idiom so many have come to enjoy. “When I choose songs for the choir, I am careful to choose things that our choir is capable of, because a lot of jazz requires more training,” Nelson said. “Most of the jazz we are fine with, but it does help us stretch and grow.” Most of the songs were written for soloists, so the arrangers are adding choral, jazzy harmony, which can be more difficult to perform than older, more traditional choral literature. “We could be singing more of the classical choral numbers that were written in the late 1600s and 1700s with all these gorgeous sounds, but this is a lot more fun,” Nelson said. “We may not have some of those rich, rich tones that come with the classics

in this concert, but we will get to those in another concert.” The Tin Pan Alley repertoire reflects an innocent, more fun-loving time in American popular music, which has led to a lot of enjoyment for the members of the choir and the new ensemble. The jazz trio was only going to perform on a couple of numbers, but ended up coming up with arrangements for each number because of all the fun happening between the choir and instruments, Nelson said. “There is a drive to sing,” she said. “People come to rehearsals, which are two hours long, and feel terrible if they miss it. It’s like, how are you going to get through another week without that time of singing?”
