When members of the International Choir Society from Biberach, Germany, visited Santa Cruz in May, students of the UC German-language program took time out from their busy end-of-the-quarter schedules to welcome them. UCSC students Amy Davis, Roger Merrill, Shannon Key, and Joe Guzzetta attended a dinner and reception for the international travelers and engaged them in lively (German) conversation; some then attended the choral and organ concert at Holy Cross Church that evening. The International Choir Society is a traditional boys choir made up of 50 boys and young men between the ages of 9 and 29. The group was on their first tour of California.

This year Shakespeare Santa Cruz is presenting Romeo and Juliet, Two Gentlemen of Verona, and Arms and the Man by George Bernard Shaw.

Tickets are available now and can be purchased by calling (831) 459-2159, or online at shakespearesantacruz.org. Tickets will also be available through BASS ticket outlets beginning July 1.
