Earlier this week, I wrote that the Chamber Music Society of Lincoln Center would be performing in the Crowell Concert Series at Wesleyan - they are. Not on Friday night, as I mistakenly wrote, but Saturday at 8 p.m. ("Pre-concert Talk" at 7:15.) Pianist & co-artistic director Wu Han (pictured) will lead the ensemble in the program of music by Dvorak and Bartok. Go to www.wesleyan.edu/cfa or call 685-3355 for ticket information.
If you are on campus this weekend, do not miss "Stan's Cafe:Of All The People in All the World", the installation in Zilkha Gallery (with satellite sites at Russell Library, the main lobby of Olin Library, and the empty ION storefront of Main Street Market.) Take your time, read the captions,and think about the world and your/our place in it. The show, regretfully, closes after Tuesday March 3 but, happily, the rice used in the various locations will go to food pantries and soup kitchen in the area.
Middletown-based playwright Jenny Lecce is one of 9 writers featured in this weekend's "New Works New Britain" Friday through Sunday in the lovely Trinity on Main, 69 Main Street in New Britain. The plays, all under 20 minutes, feature local directors and actors. Performances are 8 p.m. Friday and Saturday and 4 p.m. on Sunday. For more information, go to www.nwnb.webs.com.
