Oceanside Museum of ArtFabric of Survival: The Art of Esther Nisenthal Krinitz— Esther Nisenthal Krinitz was a teenager in rural Poland when the Nazis invaded her quiet village, changing her life forever. Separated from their family, young Esther and her sister survived the Holocaust pretending to be Polish Catholics, eventually coming to America after the war. Several programs are planned throughout the exhibition that celebrate Jewish culture and honor Holocaust memories. In New York, Esther continued the sewing and embroidery she learned as a child. She was an avid storyteller and throughout their lives, shared with her daughters the story of her harrowing days as a youth in Nazi occupied Poland. A gifted seamstress, Esther decided, at age 50, to tell her story in cloth, stitching thirty-six beautiful and poignant appliqué and embroidered panels which comprise the exhibition, Fabric of Survival: The Art of Esther Nisenthal Krinitz. It will be shown through October 25, except Mondays. Tuesday-Saturday, 10 a.m.to 4 p.m., Sundays 1 p.m.-4 p.m. For more information call the museum at (760) 435-3720, or visit its website at www.oma-online.org

Old Globe TheatreSammy—The late Sammy Davis Jr. broke ground as an entertainer and as an interreligious figure. His conversion to Judaism was a sensation, with Davis later explaining that after the car accident in which he had lost an eye, he had reflected with singer Eddie Cantor about the similarities between the Jewish and American experiences. Years later, he appeared on a television special with Nancy Sinatra, and the kiss they gave each other in greeting was believed to have been the first inter-racial kiss ever seen on television. Nancy's father, Frank Sinatra, was, along with Davis, Dean Martin, Peter Lawford, and Joey Bishop were members of a high-flying group of popular entertainers known as the "Rat Pack." Sammy Davis, Jr., the man, his songs, and dancing are the subject of a world premiere to be performed at the Old Globe, September 19 through Nov 8, with the title role to be filled by Obba Babatunde, whose own career was influenced by Davis. Leslie Bricusse wrote the book, and most of the music and lyrics. Curtain times and other information available on line at www.theoldglobe.org.

Orchestra Nova— Concert-—Lindsay Deutsch returns as Orchestra Nova’s principal guest artist after a series of “standing ovation” performances with the orchestra, formerly the San Diego Chamber Orchestra, two seasons ago. A Jewish community member described as a "passionate performer filled with limitless energy," Lindsay will perform Mozart’s Concerto No. 3 with the orchestra for their season opener this Friday, September 11, at St. Paul’s Cathedral downtown, with follow-on concerts at Sherwood Hall in La Jolla Monday September 14 and at the Irwin Jacobs Auditorium at Qualcomm in Sorrento Valley September 19.Lindsay has thrilled audiences since she was 11 years old when she made her performance debut. As a young artist in the dawn of her career, dedication and determination are two of the most important elements for her success. Once the #1 ranked junior racquetball player in the world, before a knee injury forced her to quit, Lindsay has learned all about dedication and determination. With a bit of humor, she notes, “Now I stick to ping-pong. It is much safer and, although I don’t compete, I still play to win!” Featured by the internationally known Strad Magazine as their pick of “Up-and-Coming Musicians” in April 2007, her calendar is filled with festivals and guest appearances, but Lindsay still finds the time to cultivate music appreciation in young people. In 2007, she and her sister Lauren co-founded Classics Alive, a nonprofit organization dedicated to building classical music audiences of young people. They do this by teaming young artists with symphonies and schools, mentoring young musicians and by providing performance and listening opportunities for young musicians. Lindsay has a special affinity for Orchestra Nova and its leader, artistic director and conductor Jung-Ho Pak. She says, “I first met Jung-Ho at a summer music festival when I was 10 years old. That experience with him really lit a musical fire within me and made me realize that music was what I wanted to spend my life doing. Working with Jung-Ho again all these years later is really a special experience for me because I still feed off of the innovative, fiery energy he creates onstage.” Pak says, “Lindsay is one of the most dynamic, athletic and passionate violin soloists in the country today. As an indication of how highly we prize our association with her, we have named her our principal guest artist. The audience is in for a real treat for this season opener of what promises to be a fantastic season.” In addition to the challenging concerto, the orchestra will explore the other facets of Mozart - as the court musician (Three German Dances, complete with a quartet of Classical court dancers) and the symphonist (the incomparable Symphony No. 40).
