1. Philharmonia Baroque String Quartet, April 19

From Harry Bernstein:

I would like to announce an upcoming visit to the Ocean campus by four members of the renowned Philharmonia Baroque Orchestra (PBO), one of the foremost ensembles specializing in performing Baroque and Classical music on instruments from those historical periods. You and your students are invited to attend since this event is free and open to the public; it will take place from 1-2  p.m. on Tuesday, April 19 in A-133, in the Creative Arts Building in the northwestern corner of the Ocean campus. We are being asked by Philharmonia to provide a substantial turnout, so please let me know if you are able to bring your class. Here is a description of this lively lecture-demonstration, which was provided by PBO:


"Celebrating the creative genius of diverse composers from Europe, Africa, Brazil, and the West Indies, a string quartet from Philharmonia Baroque Orchestra will introduce students to some of the historic innovations in ensemble and orchestra music that continue to excite today’s audiences. Through interactive demonstrations, students will learn how the 'inner voices' fill out a classical ensemble’s sound, how the instruments 'converse,' and how classical composers have imaginatively built upon short motifs to create full-length masterpieces."


Outside of Philharmonia, the visiting musicians play together in a well-established string quartet known as the New Esterhazy Quartet. Their quartet is named after the Esterhazy family for whom Franz Joseph Haydn worked for decades as Kapellmeister and court composer. They specialize in performing the music of Haydn, Mozart and their contemporaries.


I would appreciate your sharing this information with your students and other faculty. (A flyer for the event is forthcoming.) Please direct any questions you may have to me at hbernstein@ccsf.edu. 

In the meantime, I invite you to view a performance of the quartet as well as photos of the group.

2. Manpower Job Interviews at Mission Street Campus, April 19, May 3, and May 17

Students are invited to come to the CCSF Mission campus to interview for a variety of job openings at Manpower. Be sure to come dressed for an interview and bring your resume to the 1125 Valencia Lobby between 11:00am and 1:00pm on April 19, May 3, and May 17. Please see the attached flyer for additional details.

3. Multicultural Retention Services Department/African American Scholastic Programs Rite of Passage Ceremony, May 17

The Multicultural Retention Services Department / African American Scholastic Programs would like to invite students to participate in the Rite Of Passage Ceremony, celebrating student accomplishments in achieving an AS or AA. The graduation ceremony is $25.00 (Cash only). This graduation ceremony is open to all students of City College of San Francisco who participate with the Multicultural Retention Services Department/African American Scholastic Programs. Please fill out the attached order form for details.

4. Japanese-American Internment: Discuss its Relevance Today and Honor Interned CCSF Students

Do you know the story behind the Japanese-American CCSF students interned during World War II?  

Or the former CCSF English teacher who launched a successful campaign for restitution from the U.S. Congress?

And the story behind the CCSF faculty members and administrators who in 2010 honored formerly interned students and their families with honorary degrees and a permanent art exhibit in MUB 140?

Join us to honor CCSF Japanese-American students interned during World War II and to discuss why this story matters to us, today.

John Tateishi, Director of Japanese Americans Citizenship League (JACL)

CHICAGO (1975) is a musical vaudeville with music and lyrics by Kander and Ebb and a book by Fred Ebb and Bob Fosse. Set in Prohibition-era Chicago, the musical is based on a 1926 play of the same name by reporter Maurine Dallas Watkins about actual criminals and crimes she reported on. The story is a satire on corruption in the criminal justice system and the concept of celebrity criminals. 
CHICAGO is the second longest-running musical in Broadway history behind only The Phantom of the Opera. Don't miss iconic Fosse choreography and jazzy tunes such as All The Jazz and Razzle Dazzle!
