10/29/2017 - Brunch and Bach Festival Trio Conclude 41st Sonora Bach Festival
Sonora, CA...The Sonora Bach Festival will present their last event of this year’s festival. The Sonora Bach Festival Trio will perform at the Bach’s Brunch October 29, at 12:30 p.m. at Mt. Calvary Lutheran Church, Sugar Pine. Music will include selections from Bach's trio sonatas as well as trios by other Baroque and Classical Composers. The Brunch, prepared by Chef Dave Ingram, will be Moroccan themed. Advanced reservations are required. Tickets, at $35, are available at the festival webpage Sonorabach.org or by calling the festival office at 209 536-6330.



The final event of the 41st Sonora Bach Festival will feature a brunch of Moroccan and Mediterranean dishes accompanied by the Sonora Bach Festival Trio. Guests will help themselves to the buffet consisting of varied Moroccan and Mediterranean fare. The Sonora Bach Festival Trio will provide music. The event, held at Mt. Calvary Lutheran Church, was selected, according to festival board member Barbara Fish because “it offers the best of many things for our audiences: it is located in the woods of the Sierras at only 14 miles from Sonora. And at 4700 feet the temperature is ideal”

The Sonora Bach Festival Trio consists of Janet Telford, flute; Sandra Betti, flute; and Ralph Retherford, cello. All three came from out of the area at separate times, met here, realized they all had similar skills and interests and formed their trio. They play regularly in the Central Mother Lode at a variety of events and venues.
For this event the Trio will play selections from Bach’s Trio Sonatas as well as Trio Sonatas of other Baroque composers Fasch, Loeillet, Telemann, Tartini. Also on the program will be music by classical composers Haydn and Mozart. Some of the composers have ties to Bach. Johann Friedrich Fasch lived in Leipzig before Bach, studied with Bach’s predecessor Kuhnau, and even founded the Collegium Musicum orchestra from which Bach borrowed instrumentalists. Telemann, one of the major composers of the era, (and at the time much better known that Bach), was originally offered the Leipzig church job that Bach originally took.

Chef Dave Ingram of Tuolumne County will prepare the Brunch menu. A Popular caterer in the Central Mother Lode, with experience cooking at restaurants in the Bay Area and locally as Pastry Chef at the Black Oak Casino, Chef Dave will be preparing a Mediterranean/Moroccan-themed menu. Items include Zucchini-Orso Salad, Spinach-Mushroom-Provolone Frittata, Assorted Chicken Sausages, and Grilled Moroccan Chicken Breasts. Vegetables include Roasted red Potatoes with onions in Olive Oil and Grilled Tuscan-style Veggies. The Meal will begin and end with fruit: A Fresh-Fruit Salad with Honey-Yogurt Dressing starts the meal and it finishes with Peach Cobbler. While the whole meal is clearly Mediterranean/Moroccan, the final delicacy is definitely NOT. Chef Dave says, “I’m breaking the theme with the last dessert of Peach Cobbler with Whipped Cream and Raspberry Sauce. Although it’s a popular American classic, the ingredients would be available in Morocco as well.”

Janet Telford, flutist in the Trio, holds degrees in music from San Francisco State and Penn State Universities. She is the former Executive Director of the Sonora Bach Festival, founder of the San Jose Chamber Music Society, and former co-editor of Music for the Love of It, a newsletter for amateur musicians. She maintains an active, private music-teaching studio. Ms. Telford performs with numerous chamber music groups in concerts in the Mother Lode as well as in the San Francisco Bay Area, appearing as guest soloist with the Berkeley Community Chorus and Orchestra.  She is a member of the Mother Lode Friends of Music Orchestra and the Mother Lode Woodwind Quintet.

Ralph Retherford, cellist, was raised in a musical family, his mom being a concert violinist and brother a violist.  By ten years old he was studying the cello, and eventually performing with the California Youth Symphony. He is active as a solo and ensemble performer. Quite the rounded musician, Ralph is also a singer, composer and “picker”. Locally he sings with the Columbia College Community Chorus and with the doo-wop acappella group, Sincerely.  He's also performed with local groups singing and picking mandolin, banjo and guitar.  His talent and experiences gel in his original songs which tell of his love of the mountains, the desert and the fairer sex.   His tune, “Dozer Man” prompted him in 1983 to leave his Carmel Valley medical practice and do a national radio station/ performance circuit to promote the song onto the Billboard charts. Quite a “Dozer Man” himself he recently retired from his private, medical practice.

Sandra Betti, flutist and director of the Sonora Bach Festival, performs extensively throughout the Mother Lode.  She is a frequent artist for the Mother Lode Friends of Music Concert Series, plays with the Amador Concert Band, has performed at the National Hotel in Jackson, and for both the St. James Concert Series and the Sonora Bach Festival.  She has a music degree from San Francisco State and has studied with principal flutists of both the San Francisco and Boston Symphony Orchestras. In addition to her performing, Sandra gives flute lessons to aspiring musicians, and is the music director at St. Patrick's Catholic Church in Sonora. 

“This is a wonderful opportunity to hear beautiful music in a beautiful setting,” says Ms. Fish. “The venue is small and intimate so you are close to the musicians. And with the wonderful food, beautiful music and quiet forest it’s a perfect place to spend a Sunday afternoon.”

11/16/2017 - Speakers Explore Today’s California Native American Experience
Columbia, CA...The Columbia College Foundation will host an enlightening look at the changes and challenges of today’s Native American experience Thursday, November 16. Speakers include author and ethnic studies professor Dr. Melissa Moreno of Woodland Community College, Carlos Giesdorf (Me-Wuk), Cultural Coordinator of the Tuolumne Band of Me-Wuk, and Columbia College Counselor Stephanie Beaver (Hupa) who will moderate. The event, held during National Native American Heritage Month, will be held in the Dogwood Forum at Columbia College and is free to the public. Doors will open at 6:00 p.m. and the evening’s program will run from 6:30-8:00pm.


The November 16 program continues a community lecture series hosted by the Columbia College Foundation in cooperation with college faculty and regional partners.

Beaver is the event organizer, and noted that perspectives of Native California people are important to invite and showcase, especially in a college setting. “This will give a missing voice and perspective in a larger public system,” Beaver said. “It’s great for natives and non-natives alike – it will help everyone gain formal academic knowledge and cultural insight they may not have had access to. It’s great for anyone who works with native people or has a desire to understand native history and present experiences. Who couldn’t benefit from that?”

“This is a chance to hear from and learn more about a vital part of our local culture, and to help bring light to their story and the history of California,” said Colette Such, Columbia College Foundation President. “The Foundation is pleased to help bring these speakers together for an enlightening and educational evening.”

Groveland, CA...TUOLUMNE COUNTY – The California Department of Transportation (Caltrans) and the Tuolumne County Transportation Commission are hosting a public meeting to discuss a potential project that would improve safety and efficiency for motorists, cyclists and pedestrians in the town of Groveland. The meeting will start at 5:00 p.m. as originally scheduled, but the public presentation will also begin promptly at 5:00 p.m. The meeting will end at 5:45 at the request of the community.

10/07/2017 - Railtown 1897 Celebrates Autumn With Special Apple Harvest Activities on October 7
Jamestown, CA...California State Parks, Railtown 1897 State Historic Park (SHP) and the California State Railroad Museum Foundation will host the 3rd Annual Apple Harvest Day on Saturday, October 7, 2017, at Railtown 1897 SHP. Apple Harvest Day celebrates the history of apple production in Tuolumne County – which dates back to the early days of the gold rush – and the Sierra Railway’s part in both promoting apple cultivation and transporting the produce and products. The special event will include interpretive displays, a slide presentation on the history of Tuolumne County apples, crafts and games for kids, a free booklet on fun apple facts and trivia plus a heritage apple quiz with locally grown apples as prizes.


On his first visit to Tuolumne County, Thomas Bullock – one of the Sierra Railway founders – saw the potential for large scale apple production in the area’s volcanic soils, mild climate and rolling topography. Through the years, the Sierra Railway continuously promoted the growth of the apple industry through advertising, informative booklets on successful cultivation, and bonuses and incentives for those planting new orchards of ten acres or more. At the height of apple production, before World War II, apple orchards blanketed the county foothills and Tuolumne County apples were in great demand throughout the state and beyond.

The special apple harvest activities at Railtown 1897 SHP are free with regular Park admission: $5 for adults; $3 for youths ages 6-17; and free for children ages 5 and under. Also, steam train rides behind the famous “Movie Star Locomotive” Sierra No. 3® are available that day at 10:30 a.m., noon, 1:30 p.m. and 3 p.m. and cost $15 for adults; $10 for youths ages 6-17; and are free for children ages 5 and under (train ride tickets include Park admission). 


For more information about the special apple harvest activities or Railtown 1897 SHP in general, please call 209-984-3953 or visit www.railtown1897.org
