They held candles and walked through a grimy Santa Ana neighborhood where the sheen of poverty and tough workaday lives was lessened by the glow of candlelight and the festive air of the holidays. The walk was Las Posadas, the traditional re-enacting of Mary and Joseph's search for a place to stay to await the birth of Jesus Christ.

Ingmar Bergman's magical film of Mozart's opera "The Magic Flute" begins with a scene few can forget. During the Overture, the camera pans the faces of an ethnically and culturally diverse audience, and for a few moments, everyone is taken by the music to a single place. This United Nations-esque vision is not likely to take place in a real U.S. concert hall, however. Crowds for such music, especially in Orange County, tend to be rich, old--and white. Is there systematic exclusion of minorities?
