Coffee with Kaizer... Musical happenings for the weeks of January 14th...

Lets go to a concert! The year has gotten off to a great start with lots of shows to enhance our musical proclivities. Thanks to Laraine's weekly report I can share little concerts and events that few people in our community would even know are happening.

Also I am exited to report that Anything Goes will be at the Smith Center next month opening February 5th. With musical score by Cole Porter, the 1930's classic is expected to bring in the crowds. If there was any musical that is at the top of my list of favs its this one. 

So turn off the TV, get out of the house and go see a concert or a show. For goodness sake we are the Entertainment Capital of the World after all!

Have a great and culturally filled week everyone.
