A beautifully written exploration of identity, love and loss set against the social upheaval created by the rise of Singapore. An Asian-American Music professor, Ping, is going back to Singapore to visit her mother following a period of estrangement. During the journey she reflects on her youth which seems like another lifetime. Teenage Ping left Singapore and her boyfriend Weng abruptly to go and study in the US where she created another life for herself. When she meets him again in Singapore, old memories are stirred up and secrets demand to be told. Recent Praise for The River's Song: '... just as the best novels should be but so rarely are: like immersion in a vivid dream. I couldn't decide whether to read it slowly in order to savour every word, or to race along, mesmerised by Lim's dazzling story-telling.' - Jill Dawson, British author of The Great Lover, (Richard and Judy's Bookclub). '... a winning coming of age novel that bridges the years and countries. Here is the buoyancy of sentences and a testimony of resilience.' - Krys Lee, award winning Korean author of The Drifting House ' - powerful, deep and moving - draws you in and pulls you along irresistibly. Its heartfelt swell will carry you away to a place of passion and resonant conviction.' - Kevin MacNeil, Scottish author of the best-selling The Stornaway Way 'A touching story that retrieves Singapore's fast disappearing past and gives its famous river the depth and colour of a people's history, and a wonderful rendition of the pipa, on the page, as mother and daughter play their songs from the heart.' - Romesh Gunesekera author of Reef, shortlisted for the Booker Prize The River's Song is available in print and ebook formats.

Orange County, Calif.-Jan. 9, 2015-Composer, conductor and teacher Leonard Bernstein, one of the undeniable giants of 20th-century music, and the first American-born conductor to become a major star, becomes the focal point of Pacific Symphony's second "Music Unwound" concert this season, "For the Love of Bernstein." In 1985, a young Carl St.Clair met Bernstein as a conducting fellow at Tanglewood Music Center. A few years later in 1990, St.Clair stepped in for the ailing Maestro and conducted his "Arias and Barcarolles" during what turned out to be Bernstein's last concert. St.Clair would soon be named music director of Pacific Symphony, but the impact of Bernstein's mentoring to St.Clair has remained to this day.

With Frank Fetta conducting the Marina del Rey Symphony and Nancy Dobbs Owen's Portrayal thru Dance of Leonard Bernstein's and Jerome Robbins' famed works, in celebration of his 100th Birthday, this marvelous concert took place at Marina del Rey's Burton Chase Park, where the ocean meets the land. There is something quite fabulous about sitting in the open air, a sea breeze blowing, a newly overcast sky, as the sun sinks past the horizon and people with picnics, dogs and children in tow, gather to hear one of the several free summer concerts, done bi-weekly, during the summer months.

The company that makes great theater for everyone is at it again. Taffety Punk Theatre Company's mission is, and always will be, to put out a good product while making it affordable for everyone. Tickets are $15 and there are also “pay what you can” performances. The current production, well worth the ticket price and then some, is a knockout version of Moliere's tale of the great lover Don Juan. It stars the superb DC actress Tonya Beckman in what, so far, is the role of her career.
