Los Cantantes del Lago

Los Cantantes del Lago choristers present their holiday concert, “A Rose in Winter,” Tuesday, December 3, 7 p.m. and Wednesday, December 4, 4 p.m. at the Auditorio de la Ribera. Wonderful music fills this concert, including pieces by John Rutter, Eric Whitacre, Craig Hella Johnson and Ola Gjeilo. This season’s concert features the Janus Quartet, which includes former Los Cantantes singer Areli Medeles.

The guest director for this concert, Ken Turner, comes to Lakeside from San Antonio, Texas, where he directed for many years what were considered to be among the finest high school choruses in the state. His program for “A Rose in Winter” is varied and has layers of the symbolism of roses from Aphrodite to the Virgin Mary, to the rose being a symbol of love and hope in today’s world.

Tickets, 250 pesos, are available at Diane Pearl, Mia’s Boutique, from any chorister or via This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..">.

LLT main stage event

The December Lakeside Little Theatre production is a combination of two one-act comedies: “The Real Inspector Hound” and “After Magritte,” by Tom Stoppard, directed by Randy Warren and assisted by Suki O’Brien. Show dates are December 6-15.

The first comedy, “The Real Inspector Hound,” is a play within a play merging two second-rate critics and a cliché-ridden whodunit filled with multiple surprises, murderous lunatics, and melodramatic lechery. A classic of the English comic tradition, this play weaves together parody, pastiche and punning to create a wonderfully entertaining and ingenious one-act comedy. It’s part send-up of Agatha Christie’s “The Mousetrap” and part dig at the pomposity and self-importance of theater critics.

The second play, “After Magritte,” is an absurdist, surrealist and comic one-act play with a kooky trio: Scotland Yard, a minstrel show and a tuba!

The first Saturday and both Sundays are matinees, 4 p.m., and the evening shows begin at 7:30 p.m. Tickets, 300 pesos, are available at the LLT box office, 10 a.m. to noon, every Wednesday and Thursday and every day for the run of the December Mainstage show one hour before curtain – except Sunday.

Christmas murder mystery

Christmas will never be the same. There has been a murder at the Mid-Trimming Manor, otherwise known as Janelle’s Restaurant. Who did it? Cast members are, from left, Zane Pumiglia, Chris L’Ecluse, Donna Blackburn, Kelly Morrow, Pam Pettus and Mark Gulko. This murder mystery is presented in an old-style radio show format, and Christmas music, sometimes off-key, is performed by the Mid-Trimming Carol Singers. It may be a good idea to have your vocal cords at the ready. Shows are Wednesday, December 18, and Thursday, December 19, and include a sumptuous Christmas diner, all for 350 pesos. Tickets are available at Janelle’s, Mia Boutique and Diane Pearl’s.

Christmas Concert

Playing first violin is Marianna Hermosillo; Brenda Galvan Gonzalez is second violin; the viola is played by Juan Carlos Munez; and Areli Medelez is on cello. All these musicians attended the Festival del Lago Academy last summer. Their teacher and coach, Christopher Wilshire, will perform the solo for the Bach concerto. There will also be traditional popular Mexican music and Christmas carols.

Proceeds from these concerts will be shared with the Festival del Lago Academy. Tickets, 300 pesos, are available at the LLT box office, 10 a.m. to noon, every Wednesday and Thursday and every day for the run of the December Mainstage show one hour before curtain, except Sunday.
