  • Tehachapi, a music hot spot

    Mark La Ciura, contributing writer|Apr 13, 2024

    The benefits of learning music are well documented for kids and older folks alike. I found this out going to my daughter's music concerts as she was growing up. Sarah J's instrument was the Alto Saxophone. I saw the benefits in her and all the kids that were playing in her jazz band and marching band. I also found out it does not matter if you are super talented or just have a love for playing and never had the time. I was very inspired by my daughter Sarah J to take up a instrument back then....

  • National Kazoo Day

    Lily La B, contributing writer|Jan 6, 2024

    Jan. 28 is National Kazoo Day. Yup, for real. The coolest thing about a kazoo is that if you can hum, you can play one. The second coolest thing is that it fits in your pocket or purse so, like a harmonica, you can make music anytime, anyplace. The third coolest thing is that the kazoo was invented in America.

    We have made it! This year is the 60th anniversary of Tehachapi Mountain Festival. This year is the Diamond Jubilee! A good time to look back at our mountain city, the Land of Four Seasons.

So, having discovered the library at Tehachapi Museum, thanks to Del Troy, I once again imposed upon her to let me see some of the other old b...
