Trowbridge Hall was the scene of a jazz concert on Sunday, Sept. 8.

The Arizona Jazz Quartet from Tucson entertained a good crowd. The band members were from the College of Fine Arts School of Music at the University of Arizona. Band members were: Moises Paiewonsky, trombone; Tristan Rogers, guitar; Salvador Lopez, bass and Cory Boone on drums.

The concert was part of a series of planned concerts and art displays that are being presented by the Oracle Union Church. There will be another concert (cello and piano) on Sunday, Sept. 29, at 2 p.m.

Artist Risa Waldt also had her water colors on display at the hall.

Waldt is an artist living in Catalina. She is a native Tucsonan who loves the desert where she grew up. In 1973 she began expressing herself in watercolors. She loves to paint the Grand Canyon, wildlife and historical features of Arizona.

She is an award winning member of the Southern Arizona Watercolor Guild. She served as the Guild’s President 2003-2004. She is also a member of the National Museum of Women in the arts (Washington D.C.), an associate member of the National Watercolor Society and the American Watercolor Society. She continues to be an active member of the National League of Pen Women and the Arizona Watercolor Association.

Risa’s home is the “House of the Red Tails”. She named it to honor the red tailed hawks that circled over her home as it was being built on the west slope of the Catalina Mountains. It was a sign that it was ok to build there. Her House of the Red Tails Gallery is also located in her home. Her artwork can be seen there. To schedule a showing of the Gallery you can contact Risa at 520-825-9601 or Email risa@risawaldt.com.

Risa and her artwork will be at Trowbridge Hall through September on Saturdays 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. and Sundays 12:30 – 3:30 p.m. The Hall is also open Wednesday and Thursday from 10 a.m. – 1 p.m. Trowbridge Hall is located at the historic Oracle Union Church, 705 E. American Avenue in Oracle.

Risa’s artwork is also on display at the Sanctuary Cove 8001 N. Scenic Drive in Tucson; Desert Star Treatment Center, 7493 N. Oracle Road in Tucson; and Claire’s Café and Art Gallery, 16140 N. Oracle Road in Catalina.
