Violinist Nicole McKenzie, Pianist Betty Oberacker to Perform All-Beethoven Duet

Two luminous musical talents — and both Santa Barbara Music Club performing members — violinist Nicole McKenzie and pianist Betty Oberacker, will join forces at 3 p.m. Sunday, Jan. 12 for a "Bravo Beethoven" concert in the Girsh-Hochman Sanctuary of Congregation B'nai B'rith, 1000 San Antonio Road in Santa Barbara.

Their concert will highlight three magnificent Beethoven Sonatas: No. 1 in D Major, Op. 12, No. 1; No. 5 in F Major, Opus 24 in F Major ("Spring"); and No. 7 in C Minor, Opus 30, No. 2, tracing the composer's compositional development and exhibiting his boldly innovative, hauntingly evocative and powerfully passionate creative genius.

Admission is free, and a donation to the CBB Hadassah Hospital Project is suggested.

Hadassah Hospital in Jerusalem was nominated for a Nobel Peace Prize "in acknowledgment of its equal treatment of all patients, without regard for race, religion or ethnic origin, and for its efforts to build bridges to peace."

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
