Showcase Concert Series
Teresa Tudury
plus
Ira Marlowe

.

As comfortable with humor as with harmony, Teresa
Tudury and Ira Marlow are both stellar solo performers
whose original songs are lightly crafted gems of
wry observation and hilariously spot-on wordcraft. Described
(by L.A. Weekly) as "a cross between Bette Midler and Bonnie
Raitt," Tudury has a sultry voice and smooth, bluesy way
with a guitar, and fast-rising Marlowe has been compared to a
young Tom Waits. This intimate concert brings you up close and
personal with two of the Bay Area's finest songwriting performers. .
. And yes . . . there will be pie.

The Occidental Community Choir presents
All Our Relations



In the winter of 1978, a group of musically-minded folks from
the hills around Occidental gathered to sing carols around a campfire
on Christmas Eve. They did not want to stop singing, and 36 years later,
they still haven't stopped. Now under the leadership of director Andy DelMonte,
the OCC returns to the Glaser Center for another sensational concert
of original tunes and suprising twists on old favorites.

such as 'God Bless Ye Femmy Lesbians,' 'Satan Baby,' and 'I'm dreaming
of a Betty White Christmas'—plus hilarious Jewish satiric fare, including
'Don't Be Happy—Worry!' the Chanukah spa classic 'I Had a Little Facial,' and of course,
