Coffee with Kaizer... Musical happenings for the week of December 3 and 17th...

It would not be the holidays without Laraine Kaizer's weekly updates to keep us abreast of the musical happenings about town. Laraine is one of the talented violinists of the Las Vegas Philharmonic who absolutely floored me on Saturday with their holiday concert. It is so heartwarming to know that we have such an amazing philharmonic and talented musicians in this community that make Las Vegas a great place to live.

Have a great week everyone and
Happy Holidays!
