Cassandra Tarantino has her Bachelor’s Degrees in Church Music and English Literature from Westmont College, Santa Barbara. She holds Master’s Degrees in Performance Flute from CSU, Northridge, and in Choral Conducting from SJSU.
Ms. Tarantino has taught at Cuesta College, San Luis Obispo since 2006 where she conducts the Concert Choir, teaches private voice and flute, and Musicianship and Classical Music Appreciation.
In 2006 Cassandra founded the Cuesta Concord Chorus and has enjoyed touring the world with them singing with fellow choirs and for veterans. Ms. Tarantino was hired in 2017 as the Music Director for St. Stephen’s Episcopal Church. Folk music and dance are a passion for Cassandra, and you will often find her playing and dancing traditional Irish, English Country and Contra Dance music.
There will be a solicitation for funds for the chorus after the event.
The 1937 Vought A-7C Corsair is nearing completion. Steve Foss, Carl Robbins and Dennis Johansen are shown getting ready to lift the port side external fuel tank. Mike Brophy and Ken Trefftzs were also involved with lifting the fuel tank with their fork lift expertise.
If you want to get involved and help on the next restoration project, we would love to meet you! Come on down on any Saturday and introduce yourself. Not everyone has a ton of experience in airacraft restoration, we know that. We don't even mind training as long as you don't mind getting your hands dirty once in a while! It's a great place to make new friends. Nearly all the aircraft on site were restored by volunteers.
The Facel Vega marque was created by Jean Daninos, (brother of the humorist Pierre Daninos, although the Facel company had been established by the Bronzavia Company in 1939 as a subcontracting company for the aviation industry.
Facel S.A. was a French manufacturer of pressed steel automobile components, later complete automobiles of their own design. To intensify its World War II war effort, French subcontracting company for military aeronautics Bronzavia created a subsidiary called Facel (acronym of Forges et Ateliers de Constructions d'Eure-et-Loir) in December 1939. After the war, in 1945, by merging with Métallon, Facel began to make short-run special bodies, coupés or cabriolets for Simca, Ford of France, Panhard and Delahaye. Approximately 2,900 cars of all models were hand-built in Facel's short life.
