CONDUCTOR: Grace Sheldon-Williams. TICKETS: $5, at the box office. "The world has changed." That's a cliche, of course, but look around. The world was changed by the printing press, the horseless carriage, electronic communications and by immunizations that have prolonged millions of lives.

A sad curtain fall for Glendale The relative lack of arts and culture in Glendale has recently received attention in a variety of letters on this page. One of the preeminent sources of theater art in Southern California is the repertory theater A Noise Within right here in Glendale. The three plays performed in this fall’s season were Shakespeare’s “Hamlet,” Nash’s “The Rainmaker” and Dickens’ “Oliver Twist.” In my humble opinion, this was absolutely the best three-play series A Noise Within has produced since my wife and I started attending more than 10 years ago. And the critics seemed to agree, with one reviewer writing that the “Hamlet” portrayal was just about the best he had ever seen.

Gary Moskowitz Shmavon Shmavonian is not interested in the darker side of life. Since he was a boy, the painter has created art that, to him, represents his passion for joy, peace and happiness. Shmavonian was invited by the city of Glendale to visit so he could dedicate his painting, "Eternity," to the city in May. The painting, created in memory of the victims of the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks, is in the city manager's conference room but will soon be moved to the lobby at City Hall.

Jerry Lane "The world is so full of a number of things/I'm sure we should all be as happy as kings." My wife repeats those words of Robert Louis Stevenson all the time -- and I think he might well have said it of Southern California. There is so much to do here! A week or so ago, we drove down to Laguna Beach for the Sawdust Festival, the Art Affair and the Festival of the Arts. The weather was perfect. We had a beautiful lunch and then fed our souls on all of the wonderful artwork, stopping to talk to the artists and reminisce on past fairs with friends at their stalls.
