The thought of Ireland conjures images of green rolling hills, welcoming pubs, and beautiful haunting music that draws inspiration from the soul of the Irish people. Crescenta Valley residents got to sample that music by Noel Hill, a master of the art of the concertina. Hill not only shares his music by playing professionally but also has a music school in Conamara where he met Crescenta Valley residents Debbie and Chris Kollgaard.

The Sparr Heights Community Center was filled with the sound of music Wednesday, courtesy of a band from Los Angeles whose members have no need for sheet music — or even to see their instruments in order to play. As the Ambassadors of Music sang, played and joked with the audience, it might have been easy to miss the fact that most of the band members were blind. "I've known them probably eight or nine years," said Shirley Robertson, recreation and community service coordinator for the center.

The romantic draw of music has made a great impact on Tom Metzler’s life. It has taken him from an impressionable young boy to the owner of a violin shop in Glendale. When he was 7 or 8 years old, living in Iowa, Metzler’s parents took him to an Iowa State University concert where he was awestruck by a sequin-dress-wearing violin soloist. “I was just swept up in the beauty of the music and the romance of it,” Metzler said. He told his parents he wanted to learn violin, and proceeded to study with that same violin soloist for about 10 years.

When Jimmy Spencer strolls onto the stage at Mr. B's restaurant in Burbank impeccably dressed in a gray tailored suit, satin tie, handkerchief and silver cufflinks, he looks like a member of the Rat Pack. But once the room fills with the sound of his rich, velvety baritone voice, it's clear he sings with the intimacy of Nat King Cole. Spencer is a versatile singer who courts his audience with smooth and gentle phrasing and a warm, vibrant delivery.
