Friday, November 21, 2008

Much to do about cannot walk in our metropolitan area this weekend without tripping over some kind of performance. There are high school musicals, (no, the REAL ones...the ones actually IN the local high schools), concert after concert, the fabulous "Silver Bells in the City" and our very own All Saints Coffeehouse.

I know East Lansing High School is doing Ragtime and I have heard they do a great job. Let me know if you go.

Folk-favorite, Joel Mabus, is in Stockbridge Saturday and I believe the show is free. Great way to see the master.

Silver Bells in the City is a fantastic array of sight and sound in downtown Lansing, Michigan's capital city. The State tree is illuminated, multiple choirs perform throughout the downtown area, a lighted parade of floats glides down Washington and Capitol avenues and local shops are open to provide nourishment in what is to be certain a chilly evening. It starts at 5pm Friday.

Now, if you've managed to go early and have had enough of the cold, come into the warmth of the All Saints undercroft at 800 Abbot Rd., East Lansing sometime between 7:30 and 9:30pm. There will be a variety of performances, snacks and drinks (please bring some) and a visit by a special guest.

Of course we are just beginning the dizzying selections of music to see/do/hear/enjoy. From now till Christmas there will be more things to see/experience than we can. Look for some reviews and suggestions in upcoming posts.

Till next time,
