Chaldean Celebration at Cuyamaca College – August 28, 2017

Leaders of the thriving Chaldean community in San Diego’s East County will be on hand for a special Chaldean Culture & Traditions celebration at Cuyamaca College on Monday, Aug. 28.

The event sponsored by the Cuyamaca College Student Affairs Office and the Associated Students of Cuyamaca College is set to start at 2 p.m. on the Grand Lawn. Highlights include an abundance of Chaldean food, music and dance. Among the scheduled speakers is Mar Bawi Soro, Vicar General for the Chaldean Catholic Cathedral, the seat for the Eparchy of St. Peter the Apostle, in El Cajon.

“Cuyamaca is a community college, and we take the word ‘community’ to heart,” said Lauren Vaknin, Associate Dean of Student Affairs. “But beyond that, celebrating all our students and all our cultures provides us with an opportunity to learn invaluable lessons about the world around us.”

An estimated 50,000 Iraqi Chaldeans live in El Cajon and its surrounding areas.

The celebration underscores Cuyamaca College’s commitment to creating an inclusive community dedicated to equity and equality. Cuyamaca – whose mission is to serve a diverse community of students who seek to benefit from the college’s wide range of educational programs – also hosts an annual powwow to promote Native American heritage, a Latino Heritage Month celebration, a workshop on Filipino culture and traditions, and a Veterans Week Barbecue honoring all those who have served in the armed forces.

Live Music by Gregory Page at the Library – August 10, 2017

Join the Rancho San Diego Library for a live music event on Thursday, August 10th, featuring Gregory Page! The concert will take place at 6:30 PM.

A bit about Gregory Page: 
Gregory Page is an Irish/Armenian musician that creates oddly compelling songs that observe life and capture it in a realistic, humorous way.

Gregory Page was born April 28th, 1963 and grew up in North London with his Irish Mother Moyra Page who was the lead singer in the all girl pop group “The Beat-Chics” that opened two concerts in August ’65 for “The Beatles” in Spain. Gregory started his career together with his friend Steve Poltz in a Folk/Punk-Rock band formed in 1988 called “The Rugburns”.  Page had admired the songwriting of John Doe & his Los Angeles Punk Band, X.  In 1996 he was able to hand John a demo tape of his orginal songs. John Doe offered to produce some recordings for Page and they went into the studio and recorded an album that to this day is yet to be released.

Gregory Page is an eclectic, prolific, genre-bending singer-songwriter that has toured the world many times over from Australia to Europe to Japan.

Gregory Page seamlessly draws from and transcends the traditions of folk, Celtic, American Roots Jazz, ragtime, blues, swing and French Romanticism into his own signature idiom. From the BBC to NPR to film and television soundtracks, The Gregory Page Songbook captures the imagination, enabling audiences the world over to “rewind” with original music that is cinematic, nostalgic and full of the innocence, grace, joy & romance of the early 20th Century.
