Oh, What Shall I Do ... Friday Events Roundup

Apr 08, 2011 07:54PM ● Published by Anonymous

Once upon a morning dreary, while I pondered weak and weary, over many a quaint and curious volume of forgotten lore, I came upon, by happenstance, a slew of exciting events. Only this, and nothing more.

For the Kids ...
Cook a Big Fat Greek Meal

Kids and teens ages 7 to 16 can learn how to make Chicken Kebobs (Souvlaki), Baked Orzo with Parmesan Cheese, Greek Salad, and Baklava. They'll be supervised by a 100% Greek chef, and parents can hang around and taste the spoils. The class is at the Whole Foods Culinary Center in Annapolis, on Saturday from 11 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. and registration is $40, including materials. You can sign up and pay online.

For the Grown-Ups ...
Hear a Different Type of Surround Sound

Don’t sit in that dark basement watching TV. Instead, hear surround sound live, in the form of the Live Arts Maryland choruses and brass, when they perform in St. Anne’s Episcopal Church in Annapolis at Motets, Madrigals & More. J. Ernest Green will conduct the singers and the Annapolis Chamber Orchestra. The concert’s on Friday at 7:30 p.m. and Saturday at 8 p.m.

For the Whole Family …
Celebrate Reading

The 9th annual Annapolis Book Festival at The Key School starting at 10 a.m. on Saturday features nationally renowned authors including Gwen Ifill, Peter Bergen, Norb Vonnegut, David Shipler, Michele Norris, Howard Norman, and Evan Thomas, and Humane Society Chief Wayne Pacelle. There will be new and used book sales, book signings, educational children's activities, performances by musicians and storytellers, and a silent auction of storybook-inspired furniture.

Nevermore will you be in search of something to do this weekend!
