Stone House Historical Society officers
announced today that Hidden Valley
Lake’s own “Sound of Music” will be
featured entertainment at the annual
Christmas festivities Saturday evening,
Dec. 7. Again, the Stone House party
is in conjunction with HVLA tree-
All six of the home-schooled and
obviously talented Salvadori youngsters
will sing familiar Christmas songs, in the
Stone House and later for guests in the
HVLA Activities Center.
Instrumental solos will be offered by
the two eldest children. Valentina will
offer selections on the dulcimer, which
she has just mastered. Like her sister
Natalina, she is more accustomed to
playing harp and piano.
Stone House will be open for touring
from 4 to 6:30 pm., while across the
quad in the Activities Room next to the
HVLA offices, members will offer tasty
treats, refreshments and entertainment.
Between performances by the Salvadoris, Stone House guests will enjoy the madcap humor and always pleasing harmonies of the Angel Light singers.
Founded by Dorice Vandenbrock, then a Hidden Valley Lake resident, about twenty years ago, the Angel Lights are perennial favorites. She was also instrumental in setting up the first Hidden Valley Lake tree-lighting programs.
Dorice, pictured at right with members of her group during their appearance at the 2005 Stone House annual Christmas party, may not be able to attend this year due to health problems. She assures us the group will be equally entertaining under the leadership of Shauna Armstrong, who has been with the group for years.
Angel Light headquarters moved from HVL to Clear Lake several years ago. They continue to appear frequently at local events, as well as in benefit concerts throughout the county. In the past month they have entertained at all of the county’s senior centers and at Orchard Park and Meadowood Home.
