Buzz Bin 

by MICHAEL BOWEN & r & & r & Moira and Mary & r & & r & Retired NIC theater instructor Tim Rarick researched his family heritage back to 18th-century Ireland -- and along the way, encountered a nun who had taught Rarick's mother at Our Lady of Lourdes School (attached to the downtown Catholic cathedral) in 1929. Rarick developed a play about the episode -- the stock market crash, a shattered family, a Christmas pageant -- and now, for the second year, This Child will be performed in Schuler Auditorium. Performances on Thursday-Saturday, Dec. 20-22, at 7:30 pm and on Sunday, Dec. 23, at 2 pm. Tickets: $11; $9, children. Call (208) 769-7780.





Chop Chopper Costs Today


Your brother-in-law -- it's so hard to Christmas-shop for that guy. And now he just crashed his snowmobile somewhere out in the woods. How are you going to pay for his getting helicoptered back to civilized medicine and still get him something for under the tree? With a Northwest MedStar membership, of course. For $59 a year, he can go backwoods backpacking and you'll have covered his ... and you can cross him off your list. Visit www.nwmedstar.org or call (866) 478-0566.





Yet More Holiday Music


Escape the Muzak carols with some twists on holiday-themed music: Sing along on "Home Among the Gum Trees" with the Urban Coyote Bush Band during the KPBX-sponsored "Aussie Holiday" at Auntie's on Saturday at 1 pm ... Paul Grove, Max Mendez, Cynthia Marlette and the Sweet Adelines join the Northwest Sacred Music Chorale on Wednesday, Dec. 19, at 7 pm at St. Pius Catholic Church, 625 Haycraft Ave., Coeur d'Alene, with tickets at $10 ... from Friday to Wednesday, the African Children's Choir -- orphans from Ghana, Kenya, Nigeria, Rwanda and Uganda -- will sing five concerts in Spokane Valley, Medical Lake and north Spokane, with donations requested; visit www.africanchildrenschorus.com ... and while it's not holiday music per se, your ears will still feel festive if you listen to Friday night's Casual Classics concert at the Fox, with the Eckart Preu Band playing Respighi's The Birds and Beethoven's Pastoral Symphony and the Seattle Symphony's principal cellist, Joshua Roman, performing the Kabalevsky concerto. And that's a lot of holiday musical options, folks.
