Where/When: , 655 Magdalena Ave., Monday, 7:30 p.m. to 9:30 p.m.

Why Go: Here's your chance to sing with the pros and be a participant in a classical music concert. You can sing along with choral singers from all over the Bay Area as they perform the Mozart Requiem and Brahms "Liebeslieder Waltzer (Set 1)." Vance George, conductor emeritus of the San Francisco Symphony Chorus is guest conductor. And no guess work for you; scores are provided.

Where/When:, 111 Main St, Tuesday, 7 p.m. to 9 p.m.

Why Go: Let the creative you emerge in a nuturing environment.

If you didn't think there was an artist in you, at this session, you may just prove yourself wrong!

Pricing: $20

 Where/When:, 111 Main St, Tuesday, 10 a.m. to 11 a.m.

Why Go: Explore a different dance form and try out the sensual moves of belly dancing. Europa is your teacher. She will show you her fusion style based on Egyptian style bellydancing. Belly dancing is much more than meets the eye -- it involves your mind and spirit as much as your body. Give it a try.

Pricing: $12


Where/When: , 97 Hillview Ave. Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday and Friday

Why Go: Did you purchase for yourself, or did someone give you a new electronic device as a gift? That Kindle, iPad, iPhone or something else? And does the thought of having all those great features to do your bidding please you—except for the part about figuring out how to do that? Meet Cole, an Egan Jr. High School student, our technology whiz kid, and fabulous volunteer.

Pricing: Free


Where/When: Opa!, 325 Main St., Wednesday, July 13, 5:30 p.m.

Why Go: If you've been curious about one of the hottest new restaurants in Los Altos, here's a chance to enjoy a meal out with your friends and make new ones at the same time. This is an ongoing activity organized by the Senior Center's Cora. She makes the reservation at a local restaurant. Call if you need a ride to this no-host dinner. RSVP by mid-day Monday requested, 650-947-2797.

Pricing: The cost of your meal

Where/When:, 482 University Ave., Saturday, 9:30 a.m. to 12 p.m.

Why Go: Redwood Grove is a favorite nature preserve within our community—a nice place to get away from it all, without going far. So help keep it that way by lending a hand with Saturday's project—removing invasive plants and replacing them with those more native to the area.
