Prior to the for Plumas Arts and the Town campaign there was still a Hall Theatre to be at the center question of whether our small-town, single-screen theatre would maintain enough community interest to survive into the 21st century. That question no longer lingers. One of the most impressive shows of support has brought the younger generations into a culture of supporting the places that matter to them. Plumas Arts reports that it will now put a full-steam-ahead charge into making the improvements that will secure the next few decades of theatre operation. We are now in the final bidding process for the projection system, screen and required facility upgrades to accommodate them. As we might have expected, prices m:e coming in over our original figures. There will also be some previously unanticipated costs for equipment installation and high-speed Internet connectivity-- which will bring new and ongoing expense. There are also a litany of other facility improvements and unanticipated expirations of current equipment that will undoubtedly come upon us. Tax-deductible donations to the Save Our Theatre campaign are still being gratefully accepted and needed. In each step of this venture we learn more. We anticipate an installation before the end of this year. That occasion will be celebrated with a digital opening event with free admission to all contributors to the Save Our Theatre funding campaign. We will release the date for that event as the installation nears completion. Plumas Arts will report the latest news about the conversion process in this newspaper.

The children's orchestra will be comprised of students that started in last year's program and continued to take lessons throughout the summer. One year ago, music teacher Johnene McDonald, owner of Face the Music Studio, approached Taletha Washburn, director of PCS, with a proposal to start a beginning violin program during the charter schools hours. Throughout the past 30 years of teaching stringed instruments, McDonald has acquired numerous (70-plus) violin rentals in a variety of sizes and, she said, they were just sitting in a closet at her studio waiting for young violinists to "pull their strings." PCS agreed to give the proposal a try and in fall 2013, 22 children signed up for violin lessons. "It was a tremendous turnout," said McDonald.
