Sickles to host spring fashion show
See the lastest spring fashions as students from Sickles High School head down the runway to model styles from its fourth annual spring fashion show, "Trends Tunes 2002."
These students from the Academy of Fashion and DECA (Distributive Education Clubs of America) are responsible for the entire production of the show, from selecting the theme, music and clothing to constructing the props, doing the choreography and promoting the show.
Guest host and commentator, Lisa Paige, DJ from WFLZ-FM 93.3, will present the styles at 7:30 tonight. The show will feature items from Citrus Park Town Center and International Plaza. The event is in the auditorium at Sickles High School, 7950 Gunn Highway. Tickets are $2 at the school book store, or $3 at the door. For information, call 631-4742.
Guitarist to perform at Unitarian church
Inventive instrumentalist Annie Gallop plays the guitar with complex picking patterns and imaginative lyrics.
Gallop has been touring full time since she released her first CD, Cause and Effect in 1994. Since then she has appeared across the United States and Canada in the Winnipeg Folk Festival, Napa Valley Music Festival and at the Bottom Line in New York City.
Gallop is a past winner of the Napa Valley Folk Festival Emerging Songwriters Competition. Her writings combine elaborate tales of fiction with the complexity of poetry. As a teenager, she learned to play the guitar by listening to records by Doc Watson and blues great Mississippi John Hurt.
Her fifth album, Swerve was released last year. Gallop will perform at 4 p.m. Sunday at the Unitarian Universalist Church, 11400 Morris Bridge Road. Tickets are $10 at the door. For information, call 218-3463.
