Karlo Silbiger To have Two Saturday Events


September 24, 2009

Parents of Culver City students will open their homes for two events this weekend showcasing Karlo Silbiger, candidate for the Culver City School Board. At each, Silbiger will describe his detailed plans to improve the schools.

Near El Rincon Elementary School, Jeanette James will host the first reception Saturday at 2 p.m. "I hope that many parents and Culver City neighbors will come to meet Karlo and hear his plans to improve our schools. They will be able to ask questions and help to plan the future of our community. As a parent, I care deeply about my children's education, as well as the education of all youth in the district. I invite all who are concerned about our students' futures to attend this event."

The event is co-hosted by parents Deborah Weinrauch, Meghan Sahli Wells, and Saira and Shakeel Syed. Refreshments will be served and admission is free.

The afternoon reception will take place at James’s home, 11257 Grayridge Drive, Culver City.. For more information and to RSVP, phone (310) 837-1313.

In the evening, parents Frank and Emily Dorrel will host a reception at 7 p.m. in their Blair Hills home—both musical extravaganza and a serious time to concentrate on school district issues. Eleven experienced musical theater performers--high school and middle school students--will perform a program of 15 songs ranging from the Beatles to numbers from a variety of musicals. Karlo Silbiger will join the students at the piano for the concluding song.

Silbiger teaches both music and government at the high school level. In his remarks following the concert, he will emphasize his concern about saving the AVPA program (Academy of Visual and Performing Arts) at Culver City High School. .

Performers will be teenagers Zoe Petersen, Elena Silva, Kevin Mitchell, Brandon Blum, Emily Dorrel, Amy King, Shawne West. All take part in the high school’s AVPA program. Additional performers will be Culver City Middle School students Chris Clark, Lizzy Ferreira, and Samuel Petersen, and Willows School student Kacey Mayeda. All 11 have also been involved with dee-Lightful Productions, a Culver City-based “kids” musical theater group.

The reception is free to the public, but donations to help defray costs will be appreciated.

The Dorrel’s home is located at 3967 Shedd Terrace, Culver City, 90230.
