Bless the Orange Show
The Orange Show's media and marketing guru, Jonathan Beitler, explains the annual Bless the Orange Show performance this way: ''It's a way for the Orange Show to cleanse the stage after the last performances, renew the space and make sure we have a good season. We're inviting a creative spirit into the community and continuing to foster it.'' More selfishly, Beitler admits, the annual blessing hopefully ensures that the outdoor venue’s always-eclectic season will be blessed with favorable weather throughout the year. (Hey, whatever works.)
During the blessing, transcendental singer/songwriter Tyagaraja conducts an on-site Fire Ceremony (an ancient Vedic ritual and performance employing music, dance, chanting and flame). Culminating with classical Indian dance, the evening also offers a tabla and percussion performance with Alaap Parikh and Gunjen Mittal.
