by BWW News Desk - Feb 25, 2016

Orange County, Calif.—Feb. 25, 2016—Pacific Symphony, led by Principal Pops Conductor Richard Kaufman, brings one of the most legendary silent films ever made—the 1925 larger-than-life “Ben-Hur”—to full breath-taking splendor in the concert hall, when the orchestra performs the score live as the movie is shown on the giant screen. The score—newly composed for the classic Hollywood hit—was written by Stewart Copeland, former drummer for “The Police,” who performs on drums and a myriad of percussion instruments (including trash cans to create the sounds of the Roman troops), alongside the orchestra for this movie extravaganza. With its enormous cast and crew and a visual scope that is awe-inspiring to this day, “Ben-Hur” tells the tale of a Jewish prince who is betrayed and sent into slavery by a Roman friend, but lives to regain his freedom and return for revenge. Buckle your seat belt for a wild chariot race, bloody battle scenes at sea and music that enhances every minute of it—all the ingredients for a very special event. (more...)

New Children's Book RYAN THE PIRATE is ReleasedNew Children's Book RYAN THE PIRATE is Released
by BWW News Desk - Feb 12, 2016

Climb aboard the mighty pirate ship Bella for a swashbuckling adventure with Ryan, the fearsome pirate captain. He and his crew of misfits seek buried treasure, but danger awaits those who sail the high seas. Follow their story in this new book by author Joseph Louis Garces III, released by Dog Ear Publishing. In their latest collaboration, Garces and illustrator Bethaney Abercrombie create a story that stars Ryan, who looks every bit The Pirate with his peg leg, patch covering one eye, a bushy beard and a hook in place of his right hand. He and his crew - who all have checkered pasts - sail to an island in hope of finding the treasure marked on their map. Once there, they spend days looking for it to no avail. Fate steps in when a drenching rainstorm pops up, and what could have been disaster quickly turns to joy as they make a surprising discovery. 'Ryan The Pirate' is the third in a series of adventure books dedicated to the author's three sons. Its rhyming words move the story along quickly, and the colorful illustrations with their bold brushstrokes bring the adventure to life. This is the third book for author Joseph Louis Garces III, who also wrote 'Garrett the Firefighter' and 'Tyler the Cowpoke.' Garces, a firefighter and arson investigator for the Oxnard Fire Department, previously served as an elementary school teacher. He is a graduate of Southern Utah University. He and his wife, Taira, live in Santa Paula with their three boys. Illustrations were created by Bethaney Abercrombie, who taught junior high school art for years after earning a degree in art education from Brigham young University and a master's degree in art education from Northern Arizona University. She is now a foster mom. She and her husband and five children live in Gilbert, Ariz.
