As usual, there is no dearth of things to do in the Bay Area this Weekend.

First, let me remind you that this week is your last chance to see “The Art of Bulgari,” exhibition at the MH deYoung Museum. This is an collection of exquisite jewelry and other artifacts created by the Bulgari studios. It includes several legendary pieces that belonged to Elizabeth Taylor, including a piece she commissioned but never wore, choosing instead to put it up for auction to benefit AIDS research. The exhibit closes Sunday, so this is your last chance.

Also in San Francisco, there are currently two exhibits of the works of Matisse at the Palace of the Legion of Honor.

Also in San Francisco, at the S.F. Jazz Center, vocalist Claudia Villela and Saxophonist Harvey Wainapel will be performing the works of Stan Getz. The center is featuring a great lineup of other shows all weekend as well.

At Weill Hall at the Green Music Center on the Sonoma State University campus in Rohnert Park, the Santa Rosa Symphony is presenting “Sons of the Fjord,” a program of three Scandinavian composers. First, they will be performing the American premiere of Resurgence by 34-year-old Norwegian composer Ørjan Matre. Then, pianist Philippe Bianconi will be performing works of Grieg and Jean Sibelius. You may attend this concert on either Saturday, Sunday or Monday.

Ooooo! And here’s a saddle bag full of fun, also in Rohnert Park ... Irving Berlin’s “Annie Get Your Gun.” opens this Friday, February 14th at the Speckles Center for the Performing Arts and runs weekends through the 23rd.

And, in addition to my Examiner columns you may read more of me at The Questing Feast, and you may hear me on the air every Monday afternoon from 4 to 5 pm on KGGV-The Bridge at 95.1 FM and streaming world wide at KGGV Blogspot.com.
