In keeping with Valentine’s Day tradition, the Music For All Scholarship Committee in association with the Burbank Educational Foundation gave a gift of heart this weekend by providing music to the organization’s supporters and hope to Burbankers who want to study music but do not have the financial means for lessons. The auditorium of Jefferson Elementary School served as the venue for Friday evening’s “Hearts and Hope” concert that benefited the Music For All Scholarship Program.

Rima Shah The smell of freshly polished wood and the sounds of faint laughter hit those who enter Great American Joe's Bar and Grill on any given afternoon. But the mellowness of a slow day cannot be mistaken for dullness. Joe's Bar and Grill, which opened in March on the 4300 block of Magnolia Boulevard, is swinging most nights. With a live band playing nearly every day, the restaurant offers affordable food with music and dancing from the 1940s, 1950s and 1960s.

Irma Lemus RANCHO DISTRICT -- They obviously weren't there to Mickey Mouse around. One of only a handful of middle schools invited to Disneyland to take part in the "Music in the Park" showcase, Burbank's David Starr Jordan Middle School seventh- and eighth-grade mixed choirs emerged as the only groups to receive "superior" ratings, school officials said. The 78 students who make up Jordan's mixed choirs received two trophies for their high ratings at the April 29 event, said Christine DeMore, Jordan music director.

Dance and music ignited in vivid colors, fire, pure sensuality and erotica in the ?Arabian Summer with Kaya & Sadie.? The description sounds like a scene out of some future episode of HBO?s hit series ?True Blood? or maybe a show on the Las Vegas strip. But no, it was right in the middle of Brand Boulevard in Glendale on Sunday night. Leela?s ?Arabia Exotica? Belly Dance Fantasy Theater turned up the heat on the stage of the Beyond the Stars Palace, and those in the audience were quite captivated by an experience filled with fantasy, theater, dance and mysticism.

Paul Andersen, Enjoy! GLENDALE -- This is the 76th season for the Glendale Symphony Orchestra, and Sidney Weiss was facing a bit of a dilemma. With only three concerts scheduled this year, the symphony's conductor/music director was very concerned with the level of musical content in his programming. "Quite simply I was looking for pieces that are moving and inspirational, that would make for the best concerts," he says. "Of course," he adds, "the music of Mozart just happens to fit in that category."

Paul Andersen GLENDALE -- People spend their Sundays in different ways. Some go to church and visit family and friends; others run errands and get ready for the week ahead. Carol Tatum has spent the last eight hours in her Glendale home feverishly working, with no breaks. Her job? Music. In this case, composing new songs for her band, Angels of Venice. The group has just returned from a tour of the Northwest, finishing up with some local dates. They will shortly head back out, this time to the East Coast, all in support of their debut album for Windham Hill Records, the self-titled "Angels of Venice."

I don't think I've ever seen a movie quite like "Once." An Irish street singer/songwriter meets a Czech girl with musical background, there is music and romance, they fall in love with each other and at that same exact moment, we fall in love with them. Not so unique, you might think, but it really is very original and compelling, and took me completely by surprise. The interesting thing is how the music tells the stories in the film; not like a '40s musical where the actors inexplicably break into song and dance; and not like "Saturday Night Fever," where the music is a character itself.
