  The Oracle Community Center (oraclecommunitycenter.org) donated their space for meals and pilates for musicians. The student/faculty orientation dinner will be “make your own pizza” at Nonna Maria’s (nonnamarias.com). Friday’s after concert dinner (from Oracle Patio Cafe) will be at the Triangle L Ranch (trianglelranch.com), where students and faculty will experience the lighted art pathways and the soft music of Jamie Miller’s hypnopad.
