1. JUNE 11th GIG
Red Poppy Arthouse, San Francisco. There's a new hot spot in the Mission called the Red Poppy that is dedicated to presenting fine arts. Copus is honored to be performing there on SATURDAY, JUNE 11th, and we'd love to see your smiling faces there! 2698 Folsom @ 23rd Street. 9pm. $7-10 cover at the door.
"Bienvenido and welcome to Red Poppy. A place for poetry. A flower planted during the hour of the garden . A family which hopes to create progressive sustainable social change in Latin America and the world through art. We are rooted in la tierra of Latin America from the silver stones of Macchu Picchu to the high deserts of Mexico, from the soul of Cuba to the blue snow-capped volcanoes and ancient forests of Southern Chile. Red Poppy is a new progressive 501(c)(3) non-profit dedicated to spreading the warm peace and compassion of the Chilean poet Pablo Neruda around the world. Making a difference in this world, one poem at a time." www.redpoppy.net.

2. JUNE 25th GIG
Summer Arts Fest, Monterey. Copus has been asked to perform at the Summer Fest Arts + Crafts Faire sponsored by the Pacific Repertory Theatre in Monterey on SATURDAY, JUNE 25th. The event is held outside right at Fisherman's Wharf in Monterey from 9am - 6pm both Saturday and Sunday. I'm thinking Clint Eastwood will drop by to speak a few words with Copus! For more details, please check out www.pacrep.org/faires2005.


3. WHISPERS CD
It's here!!! Sometimes lyrical and sweet, sometimes rhythmic and atonal, always rich with melodies and powerful technique - Phoenix Rising will soothe your soul. Their debut CD "Whispers" is a film score awaiting a film. Musical genres shift easily between classical, jazz, and new age to create warmth, sophistication, and percussive syncopations. The intertwining of piano and flute elicits moods of reflection, poignancy, humor, and ultimate joy. "Whispers" is available now at our independent label website - www.copusmusic.com - and will soon also be available online at Apple iTunes, Delvian Records, Flute World and offline at Borders, Barnes & Noble.

The CD release party and performance is scheduled for FRIDAY night, JULY 8th, at Clarion Music (www.clarionmusic.com). Special guests will include Copus, poet Clara Hsu, and other surprises. $10 cover at the door or $15 with the purchase of "Whispers". If you are interested in a complimentary pass, please email wendy@copus.net. Now you have no excuses! 816 Sacramento Street. 9pm.


4. PODCASTS

These exciting interview selections also include live studio performances of music and poetry. Currently, you can listen to reggae sensation Ras Digital and legendary Diamond Dave of KPOO radio and San Francisco 'beat lore'. Free!


5. WENDY'S WEDDING COMPOSITION
Wendy has just returned from a festive family gathering centered around her nephew's wedding. The event was held in Holland, Michigan, home of Hope College, where the couple met. The wedding was beautiful and included Wendy performing her piano compositions during the prelude and postlude, along with a piece written especially for the couple entitled "Grace". Congratulations, Bryant and Becky! May you have many exciting years together! (P.S. Stay tuned for announcements of how to order an original piece of music written, performed, and framed for your special event.)

7. POETRY SECTION
In honor of Memorial Day and the memories of important people in our lives, here's a tender poem by our own Royal Kent. Enjoy.

You will never know
How many stars
Are in the sky

You will never know
How many fish
Occupy the seas

You will never know
How many tears
Have gone dry

You will never know
How much you
Mean to me

You will never know
Why mountains
Rise

You may never know
Why water
Falls

You will never know
What I see
In your eyes

Just know
That love
Conquers all.

© 2004 Royal Kent.

Stay healthy and strong! Happy Spring!
Peace,

Wendy + Royal
