I know it is said that Mozart makes you smarter, but if reports are to be believed, tango may be good for body and soul.

Researchers in Australia now suggest those suffering from stress or depression can greatly benefit from tango lessons.  I can hear the collective groans of men sitting on couches all over Central Ohio.

If you’re like me and not only have two left feet, but keep a spare in the trunk, this may not help you much.  Try watching someone else tango…maybe that will help.  Oh, one other thing…if you can’t find anyone else to dance with, it doesn’t necessarily take two to tango!

Several Major Orchestras in the US Will Delay Their Seasons

Much has been written lately about the trials and tribulations of orchestras, in the United States and around the world.  I continue to put these stories before you because, as a classical music listener, I believe it is important to know where things stand and what needs to be done about it.

If we believe culture and the arts are important, not only for ourselves, but for generations to come, these are critical times.

Support your local arts organizations in whatever way you can.  It takes all of us!
