The result was the collective’s strikingly powerful self-titled release, which came out in 1997 and introduced many listeners around the world to the pleasures of bolero, danzon and other popular musical styles in Cuba. Two years later, the Wim Wenders-directed documentary of the recording process — also dubbed “Buena Vista Social Club” — was released and went on to score an Oscar nomination for best documentary film. I truly loved seeing a number of the Buena Vista Social Club members perform over the years — especially vocalists Ibrahim Ferrer and Omara Portuondo, both of whom left me simply awestruck.
Small opera companies made their marks — Alameda’s Island City Opera staged an aptly hilarious “Don Pasquale.” Regional orchestras — Symphony Silicon Valley, and the Oakland, Berkeley,and California symphony orchestras — offered winning programs, and Bay Area chamber groups — the St, Lawrence Quartet, Left Coast Chamber Ensemble and Gold Coast Chamber Players among them — explored intriguing repertoire, There were great collaborations, too — in March, the New Century Chamber Orchestra teamed up with Chanticleer in a program of black and white leather pointy flats, zebra print leather flats, pointed toe ballet flats, women leather pointy flats, handmade French and American works; Symphony Silicon Valley brought the Moscow Ballet to town for this month’s “Nutcracker.” There were many more, but here are five events that lingered in the memory long after the curtain went down..

“In CMT—and I’m noticing this with our kids—you tend to grow up a little faster. You develop a culture of doing it for yourself and for your team,” she says. “I have skills my colleagues don’t have: I can put on a (collective bargaining) presentation and hold the audience’s attention for two hours. I owe a lot of that to my musical theater background.”. Dana Zell is putting the skills she learned as a performer with Children’s Musical Theater in the mid-’80s back into the company as its managing director. After a stint in New York, where she worked for Disney Theatrical Productions, Zell moved back to the South Bay in 2003 and joined Children’s Musical Theater’s staff the following year.
