Culver City Symphony Presents Works by Stravinsky, Schumann, Mozart This Saturday

Posted by Scupine on February 27, 2015 at 6:00am 0 Comments

This Saturday, February 28, at 8:00 pm, the Culver City Symphony will perform works by Mozart, Wieniawski, Stravinsky and Schumann at Veteran's Memorial Auditorium. 

The program will include: 

Mozart: Overture, "The Magic Flute" (1791)

Kevin Miura, Violin (Miura Bio)

Stravinsky: "Pulcinella Suite" Excerpts (1920)

Schumann: Symphony No. 2 (1845-46)

Here's what the symphony has to say about the program:

"The music of Robert Schumann and Igor Stravinsky are stylistically worlds apart, but they do have things in common. Both were quick-witted Geminis, and both were in the vanguard of musical revolutions.

"For Schumann,…


Culver City's A-Frame Returns to Los Angeles Magazine's "Where to Eat Now" List

Posted by Scupine on February 27, 2015 at 6:30am 0 Comments

Los Angeles Magazine's "Power-Ranking" of new L.A. restaurants serves as a guide to the hottest eateries in the city -- and its rare when a 5-year-old (!!) restaurant makes the last. But thanks to chef Roy Choi's decision to rethink the menu to emphasize the Hawaiian-ness that Choi says was always part of the menu's charm, that's exactly what happened to A-Frame.

Here's what the Los Angeles article had to say about the restaurant:

Inspired by recent trips to Hawaii, Roy Choi decided to flip the concept of his Culver City restaurant A-Frame. The menu now features classic island fare like spicy tuna poke, curry gravy loco moco, Spam musubi, and marinated…


Turning Point Community Leadership Team Selected for International Youth Summit

Posted by Courtney Baker on February 20, 2015 at 11:25am 0 Comments

Turning Point School's Level 8 Community Leadership team, along with advisor Mr. Matt Kline, will be visiting Dana Point’s renowned Ocean Institute on February 27th, for an intensive three-day Plastic Ocean Pollution Solutions (POPS) Leadership Summit.

They will join 90 youth leaders from all over the U.S, as far afield as the Caribbean, India, and Africa. Each team won a place at the Summit based on their innovative ideas on how best to monitor and publicize ocean plastic trash, and also reduce this non-biodegradable waste.

The Algalita POPS Youth Summit offers students a chance to learn about current scientific research on plastic pollution, share their action projects with their peers, and work…


Multiple Gallery Openings in the Culver City Art District This Saturday

Posted by Scupine on February 19, 2015 at 6:00am 0 Comments

If you've been waiting for the right time to spend a Saturday evening in the Culver City Art District, this weekend (February 21) is it. George Billis Gallery, Western Project, and Luis De Jesus Gallery are all having openings. And in my experience, that means there'll be a lot of activity at all the galleries on La Cienega and on Washington. Great art is likely and great people-watching is guaranteed. Openings are (always) free and open to the public and generally last from 6 to 8 pm. 

George Billis Gallery LA (at 2716 S. La Cienega Blvd) will feature works by Anne Seidman and Karen Woods. Here's an example of Seidman's work:…

Four Culver City Establishments Make Thrillist's List of the 24 Best Dive Bars in Los Angeles

Posted by Scupine on February 12, 2015 at 6:00am 0 Comments

Just go ahead and dub Culver City the Dive Bar Capital of the City. Evidence? When Thrillist assembled its look at the finest dive bars in Los Angeles, a full 16 percent of the bars were located in our fair burg. 

Scarlet Lady was called "The best dive for free homemade food," and the article added:

The Scarlet Lady tempts you with many of the usual trappings of a genuine dive bar: cheap and strong drinks, colorful clientele, unpolished karaoke, and well-worn pool tables. But where it really comes through strong is with regular appearances of homemade food (chili, hot dogs, nachos, breakfast burritos...), often times for free, or at least all you…

Culver City Middle School student Cooper Komatsu, 12, a two-time winner of the Culver City Unified School District Spelling Bee is now taking his talents to the national level.

The road to the Scripps title is different from the CCUSD event, which is for fourth-, fifth- and sixth-graders, while the Scripps National Spelling Bee is open to those 15 and under and in eighth-grade or lower.

Dear CCUSD Families,

As you may know, Southern California is currently experiencing a measles outbreak. Culver City Unified School District cares about the health and safety of our students, employees, parents and local community. As such, we feel compelled to share important information on the health risks associated with measles, and the measures that can be taken to prevent and treat it.

Measles is a highly contagious airborne respiratory disease caused by a virus. It is so contagious that if one person has it, 90% of the people around him or her will also become infected if they are not protected.


Signs and Symptoms: Measles signs and symptoms appear 10 to 14 days after exposure to the virus. The…
