Saturday evening, head to Las Guitarras Restaurant to catch the Holiday Comedy Showcase featuring Marvin DeLoatch Jr. & Friends.

Marvin, a Novato High School alumni, was a finalist in the San Francisco International Comedy Competition and won the Sacramento Gold Rush Comedy Competition. $15 at the door.

On Sunday, catch a performance by the College of Marin’s Music Department, performing Mass in B Minor, Bach’s last major composition, widely regarded as one of the supreme achievements of classical music.

The work is a monumental synthesis of every stylistic and technical contribution that Bach made to music. A 100-voice chorus, under the direction of Boyd Jarrell, will be joined by a full orchestra and a stellar cast of vocal soloists. On Kentfield campus. $20 general/ $15 students.
