Kids invade costume shop!

Yesterday, a group of children from Palomar’s Early Childhood Education Lab School visited Chelsea Marsh in the Howard Brubeck Theatre’s costume shop. The trip was arranged by a student teacher at the Childhood Development Center. According to Marsh, “They were very interested in the clothes their favorite television and movie characters wear.”

This Thursday, April 28th! Nathan Hubbard/Skeleton Key Trio!!

Nathan Hubbard/Skeleton Key Trio is Hubbard’s attempt to feature music on his new release (Nathan Hubbard/Skeleton Key Orchestra Furiously Dreaming out May 20th on Orenda Records) without the difficulties of summoning twenty-six plus performers. The Trio will be performing “condensed” versions of pieces written for multiple voices, sometimes this condensing is just the most prominant melody of a section, or the bass line of another. At other points we try and cover all the parts (impossible, but fun). Nathan will be performing with long time collaborators Edward Kornhauser and Harley Magsino.


This Sunday, April 24th!! Broadway and Beyond!!


Palomar Chamber Singers
Join these fine singers in a wide-ranging American retrospective from the early sacred harp songs of William Billings to the contemporary musical theater hits of Irving Berlin, Rogers and Hammerstein, Stephen Sondheim and more!
