Free Astrology Talks at the Silver City Public Library
2 October

Get the latest astrological forecast and a much deeper understanding of how astrology really works. Astrology is a tool for conscious living. In a world where our parents, our peers, the media, and social institutions are quick to tell a person what is expected of them and what they should do to conform, there are precious few opportunities to explore and discover the authentic self. Humans are extraordinarily diverse and astrology may be the only model of human behavior that comes close to reflecting the complexity of a person's psyche. In doing so, it validates all forms of human experience and provides a perspective from which to live more fully. Pre-registration for the library events is recommended, as space is limited.

In concert: acclaimed Cuban quintet Habaneros
3 October

The first concert of the GCCCA season will be the acclaimed Cuban quintet Habaneros, which will perform on October 3, in the WNMU Fine Arts Theater at 7:00 p.m. (an earlier start time than in past seasons). This energetic ensemble, members of the Cuban National Symphony Orchestra, has played to standing ovations and will bring you to the "Heart of Havana" with its music and culture. Habaneros is a string quartet joined by virtuoso clarinetist Alden Ortuno Cabezas. Though classically trained, Habaneros will not only delight you with familiar pieces by such composers as Mozart, they will also introduce you to Latin repertoire that will surely have you clapping and tapping! In addition to the music, onscreen imagery of Cuba will take the audience on a beautiful visual journey of place and culture.
