Guided Archaeology Hike in Sedona, AZ

Red Rock State Park

New Guided Archaeology Hike at Red Rock State Park

November 19th, 2015

If you are going to be visiting Sedona, Arizona tomorrow, November 19th, and are interested in learning more about the Archaeology of Sedona and love to hike, you will not want to miss the new Guided Archaeology Hike being offered at Red Rock State Park! And to top it all off, the winter clouds have passed from earlier this week giving you a sunny, clear blue sky for the hike. I would highly suggest dressing in layers, the high for the day is 61°!

Archaeology Hike with Duane De Paepe
November 19th, 2015 (Arrive at 2:00 pm)
Red Rock State Park has been a destination for Native Americans for several millennium. Most of the ancient features found in the park are from the Sinagua culture dating about 1100 to 1425 AD. Now for the first time, filling a gap in the natural and cultural interpretation programs, an archaeology hike will add this experience for park visitors. Come and hear the fascinating story of the pre-Columbian people who lived and traveled in the park! This initial hike is designed for park visitors and RRSP volunteers who may want to get involved in this new program. The hike will identify the various archaeological features and interpret them into the wider context of important regional Sinagua sites. And we will explore ideas of other cultures who may likely have made use of the park’s resources. The hike will last about one hour, with an elevation gain of some 250 feet, along easy trails. For more information please visit Red Rock State Park.

Pre -Thanksgiving giggles in Sedona, AZ

Zenprov Comedy Live Performance

“Happy Thanksgiggling”

ThanksGiggling2015-posterKick Start you Thanksgiving Holiday in Sedona, Arizona with some thanksgiving giggles when Zenprov Comedy presents “Happy Thanksgiggling” at the Mary D. Fisher Theatre on November 20th, at 7:30 pm!

“Zenprov is the best comedy troupe in Arizona! People were laughing so hard their cheeks were hurting.”  – Mr. Patrick Schweiss, Executive Director of the Sedona International Film Festival.

If you’ve never attended one of their live performances before, Zenprov Comedy is similar to the popular improvised TV show “Whose Line Is It Anyway?” The troupe performs fast-paced games and scenes created in the moment—always based on audience suggestions. Unlike sketch or standup comedy, nothing is rehearsed, scripted or prepared ahead of time. Best of all, it’s never the same show twice.

“Thanksgiving is just a week away, so this show will deal a lot with dysfunctional holiday family dramas, said Derek Dujardin the troupe’s director. “We’re also going to randomly select a film description from last year’s Sedona Film Festival catalog and then reenact it with bad dubbing. And, I think we’ll also celebrate the first Thanksgiving on Mars inspired by the movie ‘The Martian’, but with astronaut pilgrims and alien Indians.”

This evening of holiday laughter will be taking place at the Mary D. Fisher Theatre. Tickets are $12 pre-sale and $15 the day of the show. The Mary Fisher Theater is located across the street from Harkin’s Movie Theater on 2030 St. Rt. 89A. Doors open at 6:45 PM. Shows are family friendly (rated PG-13) and run approximately 90 minutes. If you are a guest of the Best Western PLUS Inn of Sedona take advantage of our Complimentary “About Town” shuttle, we will be more than happy to drop you off and pick you up at the theatre for this event (make sure to call the hotel when you are ready to return). For more information on this Sedona event or to purchase tickets please visit the Sedona International Film Festival.

More about Anthony Mazzella

Anthony Mazzella is an internationally acclaimed virtuoso of the guitar who began his performance career as a concert guitarist in New York City. He quickly built up a strong following performing in most every live music club in Manhattan including: The Bitter End, CBGB’s, Cat Club, Cafe Wah, Birdland etc. Mazzella then landed a headlining spot at the BLUE NOTE NYC just one year after street performing in front of it and spent the following years touring colleges & universities all over the USA.

Mazzella began studying music on the violin at age five. He then proceeded to learn the rudiments of music on piano until falling in love with the guitar at age thirteen. Throughout his adolescence he studied with several private guitar teachers, but Mazzella attributes the greater part of his education to ear training. His influences are many, but none more profound than the music and techniques of guitar masters such as Michael Hedges, Pat Metheny, Carlos Montoya, Pepe Romero, William Ackerman, Eddie Van Halen, Andres Segovia and countless others. In the nineties Anthony shared his musical insights by teaching at Knopf Music (where he once took guitar lessons), as a private instructor, and at the Long Island School for Music and Arts. Mazzella was also one of the few chosen understudies of world-renowned guitar master Stanley Jordan. Visit Anthony Mazzella on Facebook
