One of the strengths of the Pacific Symphony's annual American Composers Festival has been its inclusion of a wide range of arts groups and voices. This year, in exploring the themes of "The Greatest Generation," the challenges and hardships faced during the turbulent 1930s and '40s will be seen through the eyes of the newest generation. The symphony has partnered with the Orange County High School of the Arts, tapping students from the film and TV conservatory to produce documentary shorts that bring the experiences of this older generation to a younger audience.

With an election looming, about 35 people gathered Friday outside the Orange County High School for the Arts to urge Santa Ana residents to vote against a measure that would let the city's most prominent developer construct the tallest building in the county just two blocks away. After four years of debate, city voters will decide Tuesday whether Michael Harrah can build the 37-story One Broadway Plaza, an $86-million structure at 10th Street and Broadway.

The City Council on Monday approved $1.7 million in redevelopment funds for the Orange County High School of the Arts. School officials will use the money as needed to cover the $16-million cost of opening the new campus. The school received approval from the Santa Ana Unified school board last month to operate as a charter school in the district, under the condition that 25% of enrollment be reserved for local students.

The Orange County High School of the Arts program may soon be moving into new facilities. Trustees of the Los Alamitos Unified School District this week gave preliminary approval to plans to construct a 95,000-square-foot building for the arts school on a parcel of land between McAuliffe Middle School and Los Alamitos Elementary School. The High School of the Arts currently shares the facilities of Los Alamitos High School.

For students at Orange County High School of the Arts in Santa Ana, the school bus is more than a ride home; it's a rolling jam session. In the last row, Joseph Garcia, 17, and Dennis Lakomski, 15, are playing guitar and singing a song from the punk band blink 182. Jenn Stein, 16, with a pierced lip, fishnet stockings, a black dog collar necklace and silver glitter eye shadow, does an improv monologue, pretending she's a cowboy.

The Orange County High School of the Arts danced onto its new Santa Ana campus last year with an expanded student population and more offerings. But now, beset by budget woes, school officials warn that the program may instead be forced to scale back. On top of that, the school is falling far short of its goal to enroll 30% of its students from Santa Ana's crowded urban campuses, drawing criticism from some members of the district school board.

When the Orange County High School of the Arts announced in April its relocation from Los Alamitos to Santa Ana, three questions were "nail biters," as executive director Ralph Opacic says. Would the new location attract as many students as the old? Would enough teachers want to work there? And would school be ready to open in the fall--meaning, would the developers and laborers revamping and rewiring the beat-up facility on Main Street accomplish in four months what typically requires 14?

Filmmaker Francis Ford Coppola has found the Big Kahoona for his movie musical remake of 1959's "Gidget," and it's Dermot Mulroney, best known for his role in 1997's "My Best Friend's Wedding." Although Coppola has not selected any other cast members for the movie, the writer-director is working with Mulroney and 35 students and alumni from the Orange County High School of the Arts in a series of theater workshops to test the story as a musical.

It was an offer no arts educator could refuse. A representative for Francis Ford Coppola, maker of "The Godfather" movies, called principal Ralph Opacic to ask whether the writer-director could come to the Orange County High School of the Arts and borrow some of the student talent there to rehearse scenes for a film script he is working on. "I would say it took a good 30 to 35 seconds" to agree, Opacic said Friday, laughing over the telephone from his office at Los Alamitos High School.
