Music, Art and a Festival

Music for mass, a jazz concert rescheduled, a class in emergency preparedness, an open air art festival and the yearly celebration at Sunset Magazine are our suggestions to Get Out this weekend.

Where/When:  , 1675 Winchester Blvd., Friday, 8 p.m. 

Why Go: This is a unique concert that looks at music for Mass over the centuries. You will get to her music from the 17th century to the 20th. It will start Renaissance Spain with Tomás Luis de Victoria‘s Missa O Quam Gloriosum. It ends with a special benediction by Estonian composer Urmas Sisask. Before the concert starts, there will be a 30-minute preview lecture.

Where/When: Heritage Theatre, 1 W Campbell Ave. Saturday, 8 p.m. (Tickets purchased for the original concert date of May 20 will be honored at the box office).

Why Go: Arturo Sandoval is the king of jazz trumpet and flugel horn. That's not all he does of course — Sandoval is recognized as a classical artist, pianist and composer. Awarded four Grammy Awards, six Billboard Awards and an Emmy Award. And now he is in Campbell for the night. Lucky us!

Pricing: $46 individual tickets; $41 season tickets

Where/When: Los Gatos Town Plaza, West Main Street and North Santa Cruz Avenue, Los Gatos; Saturday, 11 a.m. to 5 p.m.

Why Go: n plein air is a French expression for in the open air and is often used to talk about the act of painting outdoors. Well, that's what's happening here this weekend.This is the day that it all comes together. Plein air artists have been painting for the past three days. Now you and the artists can view the framed paintings and see what's been done all week. A silent auction is ongoing all afternoon so you can bid on your favorite work.  The exhibit is juried and an awards presentation will take place at the end of the day. And if the painting isn't enough, there will be live music and wine from local wineries.

Pricing: Admission, free

Where/When: , 14855 Oka Road, Los Gatos; Saturday, 9 a.m. and 12 p.m.

Why Go: Be prepared and when you take this class you will be better prepared to handle an emergency. We are not immune from the storms and the after-effects of bad weather that have plagued other parts of the country; nor do we ever know when a natural disaster might hit. This class will give you some ideas of what to do to be safe.

Pricing; Free
