Pleasanton Fourth of July Concert & Celebration
Community members are invited to "Our Day: Celebrating America's Birthday" from 23:30pm until 2:00 p.m. on Sunday, the Fourth of July, at Lions Wayside Park.

This 12th annual, all-volunteer event will feature the Pleasanton Community Band, under the direction of Bob Williams. Past and present military personnel and their families also will be honored.

Audience members can bring their own lawn chairs and picnics, or they can purchase the food at the event. Lions Club will again be offering the popular "Dog& a Drink for a Dollar" hot dog lunch.

This year's event celebrates 12 years that a group of volunteers has organized the local celebration for their friends and neighbors. The event was created by W. Ron Sutton, local resident and president of ACCUSPLIT, who believes that our nation’s birthday should be honored by more than just barbecues and fireworks.

Shakespeare's Associates - The Real Thing
From the author of Shakespeare in Love By Tom Stoppard Directed by Lisa A. Tromovitch

“A play which reminds you why you go to the theater and why you fall in love.” —Sheridan Morley, The Spectator Tom Stoppard’s shimmering exploration of love and betrayal, loyalty and sacrifice. One of today’s greatest minds explores love among adults. How do we know ‘the real thing’ in love, in life, in art? This exploration is played out in the theatrical world of writers and actors … can they tell reality from fantasy?

Ottmar Liebert and Luna Negra

Ottmar Liebert and Luna Negra
After a sold-out performance in 2008, Ottmar Liebert and Luna Negra return to the Bankhead Theater on Wednesday, July 14, 2010. This is a performance you won't want to miss! Tickets go on sale to the public Tuesday, March 23rd at 12:00 Noon.

"With his engaging mix of subdued flamenco guitar and South American percussion, rock, jazz, and pop influences, German guitarist Ottmar Liebert's "attitude" actually suppresses the more challenging and "dangerous" aspects of flamenco in favor of the romantic and the stylish. His feel for the music's innate sensuality and a gift for creating memorable melodies helped to bring flamenco to the mainstream." –All Music Guide

Liebert's incredible global success on a musical level often seems like a simple outgrowth of his cultural background and powerful wanderlust in his formative years. Born in Cologne, Germany to Chinese-German father and Hungarian mother, he began playing guitar at 11, and traveled extensively through Europe and Asia intent on fully absorbing each musical tradition he encountered. After pursuing his Rock and Roll dreams first in his native Germany and then in Boston, he abandoned the frustrations of the East coast and settled in Santa Fe, New Mexico.

By 1989, he had founded the first incarnation of his new band Luna Negra. Nouveau Flamenco began life as a self-produced local release called Marita: Shadows and Storms, copies of which local Indian artist Frank Howell distributed in his art galleries. When the record found its way to radio stations and began generating a buzz among programmers and an unprecedented response among listeners, Higher Octave Music picked it up and released a fully remastered version. Liebert has since become one of the most successful instrumental artists of the past decade, thrilling audiences throughout the world and releasing a catalog of classic recordings.

Joseph' Technicolor Dreamcoat
Joseph And The Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat is the Biblical saga of Joseph and his coat of many colors that comes to vibrant life in this delightful musical parable. Joseph, his father’s favorite son, is a boy blessed with prophetic dreams. Sold into slavery by his jealous brothers and taken to Egypt, Joseph endures a series of adventures in which his spirit and humanity are continually challenged. Eventually his brothers, having suffered greatly, find themselves groveling at the feet of the brother they betrayed but no longer recognize. After testing their integrity, Joseph reveals himself leading to a heartfelt reconciliation of the sons of Israel. Set to an engaging cornucopia of musical styles, from country-western and calypso to bubble-gum pop and rock ‘n’ roll, this Old Testament tale emerges both timely and timeless.

Saturday and

Art Under the Oaks
Livermore Art Association and Alden Lane Nursery present the 24th annual Art Under the Oaks fair the weekend of July 24 & 25. The event combines art, food and live music under the beautiful oak canopy of Alden Lane. 40 local artists will display art for sale, offering an array of paintings, prints, pottery, jewelry, baskets, fiber arts and photography. Other activities include fruit tasting, live music, wine tasting and door prizes every hour.

As a special event, the Tri-Valley Woodcarvers are selling hand-carved pieces of the historic downtown Livermore flagpole. The flagpole was raised at the center of Livermore in 1905, after an enthusiastic funding campaign supported by everyone in town. It was made of pine, 126 feet high, and cost $207 to make. The community rallied around the idea and saved for 4 years to afford the 2 1/2 ton pole. The flagpole has been a central symbol to Livermore, but recently large splits in the wood made it in danger of falling, so it was replaced. The Woodcarvers have created many sculptures from the pieces, which will be on display and available for purchase.

The show is open from 11:00 am - 4:00 both days, with free admission. Alden Lane Nursery is at the corner of Holmes and Alden Lane in Livermore. Overflow parking will be available at Sunset Plaza, at the corner of Concannon & Holmes. There is a free shuttle to the nursery. For more information go to www.aldenlane.com or call the LAA Gallery at 925-449-9927.
