More from the DVAC “Culture series”

The Diamond Valley Arts Council is proud to announce a very special Christmas Concert on Saturday, December 14.  Doors open at 6:30, and the program begins at 7pm.  “The Bone Zone” opens the evening followed by The Inland Valley Youth Orchestra.  Next on the bill is Dan Boulton and his Saxophone Choir.

Admission is $10 for General Admission with reserved seating available online at  www.thedvac.org or by stopping by the art center. We are proud to announce a package deal, order an entire table On Line ONLY and receive 25% off your order (Bistro or Large Table).

The Bone Zone (TBZ) is a community trombone choir, which meets once a week offering area trombonists an opportunity to rehearse and “keep their chops up”. The group performs a variety of musical styles from classical to patriotic to jazz and novelty tunes. TBZ has played at churches, schools and private venues offering thirty to forty-five minute programs that are both educational and entertaining.

Dan Boulton is a saxophonist and Hemet High Band Director. His passion for music and commitment to bettering the community led him back to Hemet after college. He is a husband and father and is dedicated to inspiring Hemet’s youth through music just as he was. Several years ago, Mr. Boulton brought together a group of local saxophonists to form a Christmas Caroling group of saxes. They travel to local homes and business spreading Christmas cheer and served as ambassadors of the rich legacy of music in the Valley. This year marks a milestone as Mr. Boulton expects upwards of thirty saxophonists made up of students, amateurs and professionals.

Anna Ancheta, Violinist and Educator is the Conductor of the Inland Valley Youth (IVY) Orchestra. She coaches and conducts in the Summer Strings Academy, performs with the MSJC community orchestra, and conducts, composes and arranges pieces for the women’s chorus, “Local Color.”  She has taught music at Westridge School, and in Hemet Unified School District. She created the string program at the San Jacinto School District, where she taught band and strings at Monte Vista Middle School. She holds a Masters degree in Conducting from University of Southern California, and a teaching credential from Claremont graduate school. She studied violin with Alice Schoenfeld. She has received teacher of the year awards from both Hemet and San Jacinto Unified School District.
