Mondavi makes last minute changes to schedule...

A malfunctioning acoustic canopy in Jackson Hall has forced the Mondavi Center at UC Davis to make last-minute changes to its concert schedule.

The performance of Celtic bands Danú and Dervish, scheduled for 8 p.m. Tuesday, has been relocated to Freeborn Hall on the UC Davis campus. No action is required by audience members other than to come to the performance at Freeborn Hall with their tickets. Parking passes will be honored at the North parking structure. Patrons who desire information about Freeborn Hall can find it online at:

The student matinee with Danú, scheduled for 11 a.m. on Tuesday, has been canceled. All schools and parents who planned to bring students are being notified. There is not a suitable venue available to which this arts education performance could be relocated.

The following events have also been changed:

The Forum@MC scheduled for 6 p.m. Tuesday in the Mondavi Center's Studio Theatre has been canceled due to the relocation of the Danú and Dervish concert that follows it. Mondavi Center staff is notifying all those who made reservations for this free event.

The performance by the University Concert Band scheduled for Wednesday, March 11, at 7 p.m. in Jackson Hall has been relocated to the Main Theatre in Wright Hall on the UC Davis Campus. UC Davis Department of Music staff is contacting all ticketholders for this event. No action is required by audience members other than to come to the performance at the Main Theatre with their tickets.

Anyone with questions should contact the Mondavi Center Ticket Office at 530-754-2787.

The malfunctioning equipment at Jackson Hall is an acoustic canopy that is part of the shell that helps create the widely praised acoustics of the Mondavi Center's main performance hall. Mondavi Center officials are planning for the repairs to the acoustical canopy to be complete in time for performances this coming weekend, March 13-15, to take place as scheduled in Jackson Hall. For more information, please contact the Mondavi Center Ticket Office at 530-754-2787.

About Comments

Reader comments on are the opinions of the writer, not The Sacramento Bee. If you see an objectionable comment, click the "report abuse" button below it. We will delete comments containing inappropriate links, obscenities, hate speech, and personal attacks. Flagrant or repeat violators will be banned. See more about comments here.

What You Should Know About Comments on is happy to provide a forum for reader interaction, discussion, feedback and reaction to our stories. However, we reserve the right to delete inappropriate comments or ban users who can't play nice. (See our full terms of service here.)

Here are some rules of the road:

• Keep your comments civil. Don't insult one another or the subjects of our articles. If you think a comment violates our guidelines click the "report abuse" button to notify the moderators. Responding to the comment will only encourage bad behavior.

• Don't use profanities, vulgarities or hate speech. This is a general interest news site. Sometimes, there are children present. Don't say anything in a way you wouldn't want your own child to hear.

• Do not attack other users; focus your comments on issues, not individuals.

• Stay on topic. Only post comments relevant to the article at hand. If you want to discuss an issue with a specific user, click on his profile name and send him a direct message.

• Do not copy and paste outside material into the comment box.

• Don't repeat the same comment over and over. We heard you the first time.

• Do not use the commenting system for advertising. That's spam and it isn't allowed.

• Don't use all capital letters. That's akin to yelling and not appreciated by the audience.

You should also know that The Sacramento Bee does not screen comments before they are posted. You are more likely to see inappropriate comments before our staff does, so we ask that you click the "report abuse" button to submit those comments for moderator review. You also may notify us via email at Note the headline on which the comment is made and tell us the profile name of the user who made the comment. Remember, comment moderation is subjective. You may find some material objectionable that we won't and vice versa.

If you submit a comment, the user name of your account will appear along with it. Users cannot remove their own comments once they have submitted them, but you may ask our staff to retract one of your comments by sending an email to Again, make sure you note the headline on which the comment is made and tell us your profile name.
