Pasatiempo - - Onstage This Week -

Bummed be­cause there’s barely any snow on the moun­tain and you’re itch­ing for fresh pow­der? While you wait for a hol­i­day mir­a­cle, check this out. From 7 to 9 p.m. Sun­day, Dec. 12, Ware­house 21 (1614 Paseo de Per­alta, 989-4423) hosts the Santa Fe Youth Sym­phony As­so­ci­a­tion’s nine-mem­ber Char­lie Parker Jazz En­sem­ble, led by David Par­lato, and the 11-mem­ber Miles Davis

Jazz En­sem­ble, led by Richard Snider. Com­posed of stu­dents from area mid­dle and high schools, the groups per­form works by Davis (“Fred­die Free­loader”), John Coltrane (“Blue Train”), Jerry Her­man (“Hello Dolly”), Johnny Mercer (“I’m an Old Cow­hand”), Oliver Nel­son (“Stolen Mo­ments”), and oth­ers. Ad­mis­sion is by do­na­tion. What if Char­lie Brown and friends grew up to be teenagers? That’s the premise of a dark com­edy that par­o­dies the Peanuts comic strip. Fea­tur­ing scenes at fu­ner­als, par­ties, and of course, high school, Dog Sees God: Con­fes­sions of a Teenage Block­head is per­formed by Chrysos­to­mos, a

St. John’s Col­lege theater group. Per­for­mances take place at the col­lege’s Great Hall (1160 Camino de Cruz Blanca) at 8 p.m. Fri­day, Dec. 10; 6 p.m.

Satur­day, Dec. 11; and 3 and 7 p.m. Sun­day, Dec. 12. Tick­ets are $5, and the show is “rec­om­mended for ma­ture au­di­ences only.” For more in­for­ma­tion, call 984-6139. The mu­sic de­part­ments of many uni­ver­si­ties main­tain a col­legium that is de­voted to the per­for­mance of early mu­sic.

Santa Fe Uni­ver­sity of Art and De­sign tweaks the model a bit with its Col­legium XXI, which per­forms some early mu­sic but also tends to con­tem­po­rary scores and even crosses into world mu­sic and jazz. Steve Pax­ton leads this en­sem­ble — as well as the uni­ver­sity’s con­tem­po­rary-mu­sic-depart­ment cho­rus (with fac­ulty soloists) — in a pro­gram that ranges from Du­fay to Brubeck at the

Scot­tish Rite Tem­ple, 463 Paseo de Per­alta, at 7 p.m. Mon­day, Dec. 13. Tick­ets ($10, $5 for stu­dents) are avail­able at the door. The Santa Fe Sym­phony Brass and Cho­rus and the Santa Fe Women’s En­sem­ble of­fer a pro­gram of English and Span­ish carols, with part of the con­cert be­ing an au­di­ence sin­ga­long. Steven Smith and Linda Raney share the podium. This free con­cert at the Cathe­dral Basil­ica of St. Francis of As­sisi (131 Cathe­dral Place) be­gins at 7 p.m. Thurs­day, Dec. 16. The event has been pop­u­lar in past years, so con­cert­go­ers who ar­rive at the last moment may find there is no room at the inn. Savvy Santa Feans should show up closer to 6:15 p.m., which is when the doors open.
