Schola Cantorum's sing-alongs start Monday

Choral and classical music fans have the chance to sing eight popular choral works at Schola Cantorum Silicon Valley’s annual Summer Sings, scheduled 7:30 p.m. Mondays, beginning next week, at Los Altos United Methodist Church.

Although this year’s Summer Sings may appear somber – with a lineup predominantly of Requiems, meaning a mass to honor the dead – Schola Cantorum music director Gregory Wait said the pieces are “major components of the orchestral choral repertoire. Every choral society and symphonic chorus in the world sings them. And while they share some common text, the harmonic and melodic language of each composer is completely different.”

TheatreWorks Silicon Valley’s California premiere of “Finks,” a comic drama based on the true story of comedian/actor Jack Gilford, is set to close Sunday in Mountain View.

With the 1950s Red Scare in full swing, the House Un-American Activities Committee attacks “subversion” in the arts. When a romance blossoms between rising comic Mickey and firebrand actress Natalie, they face being blacklisted along with their friends and fellow artists. Written by Gilford’s son, playwright/screenwriter Joe Gilford, the play is the story of targeted individuals in the entertainment industry suddenly faced with losing their careers or being branded forever as “finks.”
