A Chance To Do Good

By Herbert W. Piekow

 

auditoriumIn 2010, the Auditorio de la Ribera, our local auditorium, hosted 94 various events from international virtuosi to traditional Jalisco Mariachi, Ballet Folklorico and school graduations. This aging auditorium is in dire need of a more balanced air conditioning system and the stage lighting has been declared inadequate and unsafe. Both the Mexican Federal and Jalisco State governments have promised to pay two thirds of the required $4,700,000 peso upgrade IF the local community can come up with the balance of $1,500,000 pesos by the end of November, 2011.

Already there have been a series of fund raisers and there are two upcoming events that I encourage you to attend, not only will you be entertained but you help the community raise much needed funds.

Sunday November 6th, there will be a harpsichord and piano concert performed by the internationally acclaimed keyboardist Dr. Michael Tsalka, who will have just completed two master classes here at Lakeside. He has literally performed around the world. The newspaper El Siglo of Argentina says; “Tsalka demonstrated control of a pearly, brilliant touch, as well as a subtle phrasing full of nobility and expression.” Tsalka´s November 6th concert promises to be one of those special events both entertaining, and the price of the ticket will aid a truly worthy cause.

Another event to put on your date calendar is called, What´s The Big Buzz? This comedy caper will be a fun filled event featuring singing, laughter and much merriment. The show features local talent from Los Cantantes de Lago and performers from Lakeside Little Theater as well as Rafael Buccio on the keyboard. Lalo Muñez, a singer from Guadalajara will add his talents by serenading the audience with his powerful voice. Those attending will appreciate the gracefulness and professional style of two noted dancers. Alexis Hoss and Christa Halby , of New York, will perform an exciting professional dance routine.

If you are unable to attend these two events there is another way to support this important cause. You can become a Benefactor, a Patron or a Partner and receive public or anonymous recognition while receiving either Mexican or US tax breaks.

Whatever you decide, remember this is truly a worthy cause with a deadline of Wednesday, November 30´th, 2011. But why not do both, enjoy some excellent entertainment and donate a little extra. This is an opportunity to help your community, show the Mexican government and the people of Jalisco that we are truly a proud part of this community.
