The Thematics Sing About America! The Thematics, Ojai friends and musicians who join forces occasionally to present an evening of music around a common theme, return to the Ojai Art Center gallery on Saturday, March 16, at 8:00. Their theme this time is AMERICA!, music that expresses how we think, talk and feel about our great, complicated, work-in-progress country. Along with songs from the traditional canon, they will sing and play music by Bruce Springsteen, Joni Mitchell, writers from Tin Pan Alley and Broadway, Stevie Wonder, Woody Guthrie, and others. The Thematics are Charlie Bosson, Jimmy Calire, Tara Jeffery, Virginia Kron, Rain Perry, Robert Rachelli, Martin Young and J.B. White. They will be joined by special guest, violinist Kerenza Peacock. Tickets are $15 and may be purchased in advance (strongly recommended) at bpt.me/3624565 or at the door the night of the performance, if still available.
