Pasatiempo - - Onstage This Week -

Baby, it’s cold out­side, and you have a se­ri­ous case of the hol­i­day blues. Make the best of both sit­u­a­tions by head­ing to Santa Fe Com­mu­nity Col­lege’s an­nual Per­form­ing Arts Win­ter

Show­case at 7 p.m. Mon­day, Nov. 29, at El Museo Cul­tural de Santa Fe in the Rai­l­yard (555 Camino de la Fa­milia). Stu­dent per­for­mances, in­clud­ing belly-danc­ing, theater, hip-hop mu­sic, bal­let, mod­ern dance, and fla­menco, are sure to turn that frosty frown up­side down. The show­case is free and open to the pub­lic — and it’s in­doors! Call 428-1731 for more in­for­ma­tion. The vi­ola da gamba, a bowed string in­stru­ment that some­what re­sem­bles a cello, re­mained pop­u­lar from the Re­nais­sance un­til the mid-18th cen­tury. One of the last of its su­per­stars was Carl

Friedrich Abel (1723-1787), pos­si­bly a stu­dent of Jo­hann Se­bas­tian Bach and cer­tainly a busi­ness col­league of Bach’s son Jo­hann Chris­tian. Mary Springfels plays a sonata by Abel in a wide-rang­ing

con­cert by

Ser­e­nata of Santa Fe at 3 p.m. Sun­day, Nov. 28,

at the Scot­tish Rite

cel­list David Dar­ling, per­cus­sion­ist Glen Velez, and dancer Zuleikha (be­low) are fea­tured per­form­ers in

The Rumi Con­cert, an an­nual event hon­or­ing the me­mory of the 13th­cen­tury Per­sian mys­tic and poet. The con­cert be­gins at 7:30 p.m. Wed­nes­day, Dec. 1, at the Len­sic

Bean Town in­die rock­ers Aloud dou­ble your plea­sure with two har­mony-rich singer-song­writ­ers — Henry Beguiris­tain and Jen de la Osa — stripped-down gui­tar/drum/bass ar­range­ments, and the oc­ca­sional kiss of a man­dolin, eu­pho­nium, or­gan, pi­ano, trum­pet, or glock­en­spiel. Tour­ing in sup­port of Ex­ile, a struc­turally clever and emo­tion­ally dense al­bum (the band’s third full-length one) re­leased in Oc­to­ber and funded by the band’s fans via www.kick­starter.com, Aloud hits the “stage” at
