December Concerts

Friends,

I’ve been remiss in updating you all on some amazing concerts coming up, many of which are FREE, and most of which I at least have access to comps or discounted tickets, never hesitate to ask me. For what it’s worth, if you have family in town, the Guggenheim show is perfect for family and children, and is my favorite holiday concert, and I do a lot of them!  I’ve heard from many friends that within minutes all the holiday woes and stresses melt away.
