Maybe someday, they'll be performing pieces by Bach and Beethoven with the Los Angeles Philharmonic, but Thursday they settled for playing holiday tunes for their peers. The Dunsmore Elementary School orchestra in La Crescenta played tunes like "Up on the Housetop," "Santa at the Symphony" and "Prelude in G." Made up of fourth- through sixth-grade students, the orchestra is 52 students strong.

The success of Women Painters West is its ability to offer equal parts of inspiration and education. Seventy-four of the 240 artists in the organization are showing their work in an exhibition that opened Friday at Burbank’s Creative Arts Center Gallery. Its purpose is multi-pronged, but foremost it is to provide one another with support, said Karen Hansen, exhibit chairwoman. “Being an artist is such a solitary thing, and we support each other by finding venues we can show in, having meetings 10 months out of the year and inviting a speaker,” Hansen said.

What do you have planned for this weekend? Could I suggest a family activity that would interest and benefit the whole family? It is on a par, as far as expenses go, with any other activity in the area, including dinner and a movie or a local sporting event. My wife and I have lived in La Cañada for the past 13 years. We love Southern California and are especially fond of this community. I am a violist and my wife Stacy is a violinist. We both play in the Los Angeles Philharmonic.
