The Society will be exhibiting 47 painting of the late WSNC member and artist Cal Pedranti. The Firehouse/Adeline is a huge space which in which we will be able to exhibit the works. There will be a silent auction of the paintings.

In addition, we have arranged lively musical entertainment featuring the Awesome Orchestra who will play music of Hector Berlioz, Richard Wagner and film score composer Howard Shore . The Awesome Orchestra is the brainchild of conductor David Moeschler and the group is a community based group of professional musicians, skilled non-professionals and students.

The Program:
Wagner: Lohengrin – Prelude to Act III 
Berlioz: Symphonie Fantastique – Movement IV – “March to the Scaffold”
Shore, Howard – The Fellowship of the Ring – Orchestral Suite (arranged by John Whitney).
Along with Moeschler we will also have a special guest conductor: D. Kern Holoman, Music Director Emeritus of the University of California Davis Symphony Orchestra and noted musicologist and Berlioz scholar.

Food and assorted beverages will be available for purchase. We have engaged the services of Little Red Riding Truck German Food. This popular “off the grid” food truck serves authentic Bavarian Food. The truck will serve from Noon until 3:00.
