A standing-room-only audience gave Bree Burgess Rosen a standing ovation Saturday night at a concert to benefit the Woman's Club of Laguna Beach.

The improvements will make the clubhouse a venue for programs such as chamber music, which is not composed for large auditoriums, fundraisers with authors reading from their books, or master classes in music. "I am so happy to be here, and I am so scared," Burgess Rosen said after the first standing ovation.

Tom Titus Laguna Beach's No Square Theater is looking for a few good men, and women, with better-than-average voices. The occasion is a February concert packed with show-stopping group numbers from Broadway shows such as "Les Miserables." But, as artistic director Melissa Verdugo advises, "This is not your typical concert." It's a chance to be part of those show stoppers done the No Square way. "There won't be any dreary 'Castle on a Cloud' or 'I Dreamed a Dream' numbers in this show," Verdugo promises, alluding to two gentler numbers from "Les Mis."

BARBARA DIAMOND Some occasions in life make such an impression that you wouldn't have wanted to be any other place on earth at that time. Seeing the late Arthur Ashe win Wimbledon, walking down the pyramid at Chitchen Itza, opening night at the Orange County Center for Performing Arts and Carl St. Clair's debut as Pacific Symphony Orchestra conductor were such occasions for me. The orchestra's concert Saturday night at the Festival of Arts grounds was another for me -- and I wasn't alone.

Not everyone was happy with the Blue Water Music Festival over the weekend. [Seven-degrees], which was right next door to the Sawdust event, had a wedding on Saturday and a fundraiser on Sunday. The music was simply too loud, said Executive Director Dora Wexell "I'm very disappointed," Wexell said. "I don't want to be the bad guy. [Seven-degrees] is very supportive of music. But a rock concert needs a rock-concert venue. " Wexell said the music consistently went above the 70-decibel limit set by the city.

Audiences who attend performances by Iryna Krechkovsky and Kevin Kwan Loucks not only get to witness a musical partnership, but a partnership in life. Krechkovsky, a violinist, and Loucks, a pianist, are married, which they say works to their advantage when playing music together. "For a lot of our friends that are couples, criticism in music becomes personal criticism," Krechkovsky said. "I think that's why a lot of the times it doesn't work out. But we met working together, so we have a lot of respect for each other as musicians and people.

In "Deliverance," it was dueling banjos. Banjos fast and furious, with that country feel. In Sunday's "America the Tubaful" concert, it was — you guessed it — dueling tubas. Tubas big and fat sounding, with a comedic vibe. Playing a tuba-fied version of the 1972 film's most famous scene was how Gene Pokorny made his big entrance in the tuba-filled, sold-out Laguna Concert Band performance at the Laguna Playhouse. The principal tuba for the Chicago Symphony Orchestra — one of America's finest tuba players in one of America's finest orchestras — played on his tuba snippets reminiscent of the film's banjo duet, to which fellow tuba player Charlie Warren responded.

ALISO VIEJO - The acoustics were so refined that one could hear the faintest touch of the piano onstage and the slightest rustling of a paper program across the room. Sometimes at the same time. Indeed, one hears everything at a performance in Soka University's new Performing Arts Center. Hopefully it's mostly the music. That's because there is, more often than not, a lot of great music-making happening on that hall's Alaskan white cedar floor surrounded by the cherry wood walls.

Saturday night's performance was my first. My first time, that is, of hearing a piece then meandering to the CD table to see if it's been recorded, pressed and made available. Turns out Edgar Meyer's "Trio No. 1" hadn't been. A disappointment. Still, such sorrow did not characterize how I felt about the rest of the Laguna Beach Music Festival's Feb. 11 concert in the Laguna Playhouse, whose onstage offerings of the eclectic violin of Joshua Bell and double bass of Meyer were indicative of a week of excellent programming.

On a recent weekday morning, Michael Minutoli rolled up to the Main Beach boardwalk on his bike, Starbucks cup in hand, and said "hello" to people sitting on the benches. Those who didn't know Minutoli, wearing an "I Love LB" sweatshirt and pink bandanna, simply responded politely. But those who recognized the familiar face were ready to jump into conversation. Minutoli, 51, said he decided back in May that he would become the new "greeter" of Laguna Beach. "I had the greatest summer in Laguna Beach, and I've been hanging out here for 30 years," he said.
