An interactive display will provide you with an up-close-and-personal look at members of the Hall of Fame.

Mission Statement

All we want for Christmas

Now is the time that nonprofits all over the country are making Christmas requests so why should the Pittsburg Entertainment & Arts Hall of Fame be any different.

Our second request is that you consider making a donation to the all-volunteer nonprofit Pittsburg Entertainment & Arts Hall of Fame. And there are many ways you can do that.

Black Diamond Ballet’s Nutcracker returns to Creative Arts Building on Dec. 13 and 14

Black Diamond Ballet Theatre’s popular production of the Nutcracker returns to the Creative Arts Building on Dec. 13 (7 p.m.) and 14 (2 p.m.).

The ballet, based on the E.T.A. Hoffmann story, ‘The Nutcracker and the Mouse King,’ has become a holiday favorite of Pittsburg audiences with its familiar score by Pyotr Ilvich Tchaikovsky.

Unlike other East County productions, Black Diamond Ballet presents the entire ballet rather than simply highlighted scenes from ballet.

Pittsburg’s Ricky Navarro is one of the principle male dancers.

Founded in 2009 by Pittsburg native Sharon Sobel Idul and Michael Lowe, Black Diamond Ballet Theatre is East County’s lone professional ballet company. Its first production of Nutcracker was in 2009. Nutcracker has been presented annually since 2012 in the renovated Creative Arts Building, Contra Costa County’s largest theatre, the past three years.

With Sobel Idul, a Pittsburg native who began her ballet training at age three through the City of Pittsburg, serving as artistic director, Black Diamond Ballet blends the talents of professional dancers with nearly 20 locally trained student ballet trainees as well as youngsters from Sobel Idul’s Pittsburg Performing Arts Academy and other East County studios. Pittsburg resident Sarah Hernandez assists Sobel Idul with the choreography.

Sobel Idul studied under Helga Ishikata at Delta Ballet Academy, performing the principal roles in a number of productions including ‘The Little Match Girl.’ She attended Cal State University, Long Beach as the Jason Robins Dance Scholarship recipient and holds a degree in Dance from the university. She has also danced with Peninsula Ballet Theatre, including that company’s 2007-08 Nutcracker productions in Pittsburg.

 Sobel Idul became the owner of Delta Ballet Academy after returning home following her graduation and moved the academy from Antioch to Pittsburg this year where it operates under its new name, Pittsburg Performing Arts Academy, at 329 Railroad Ave.

Sobel Idul began a tradition of community involvement in her first year with Black Diamond Ballet Theatre when over 3,000 cans of food were collected from Pittsburg elementary schools for PICES (Pittsburg Community Emergency Services) while providing free tickets for many students.

This year, members of the military have been able to obtain free tickets for the Nutcracker with bargain-priced tickets offered to families of military members.

All tickets are $10. Tickets can be purchased online at www.pittsburgperformingarts.com or www.blackdiamondballet.org. They may be purchased in advance at the Pittsburg Performing Arts Academy, 329 Railroad Ave., and at the door. For information, call (925) 753-9833.

Individuals, service clubs help PEAHOF

Local service clubs and individuals are helping the Pittsburg Entertainment & Arts Hall of Fame bring music to Pittsburg junior high students through the PEAHOF Arts Mentoring Program.

The Pittsburg Rotary Club and Pittsburg Women’s Community League have made contributions for the purchase of instruments for use in the program.

John Guerrero, a founding PEAHOF Board member and leader of Natural Blend, one of Pittsburg’s oldest bands, and Allan Grissette, drummer for the Devil Mountain Jazz Band, have both donated instruments for the program.

 Members of the California Watercolor Association have volunteered to work with students, providing art mentoring in the watercolor medium.
