Weekend music options in Ajijic

A multitude of options exist for enjoying live music at area restaurants and bars Saturday and Sunday, March 5 and 6. Here are a few of our favorites:

‘Nunsense’ still crazy after all these years

A chorus line of nuns, dressed in full clerical garb, kick off the Lakeside Little Theatre (LLT) musical for Season 51.  “Nunsense,” one of off-Broadway’s biggest successes, ran for 3,672 performances from 1982 to 1993. By the time it closed it had been translated into 21 languages with more than 5,000 productions worldwide. Writer/composer Dan Goggin followed it with six sequels featuring the zany antics of “The Little Sisters of Hoboken.”

Chamber group joins multifaceted soprano for innovative concert in Ajijic

One of the more ingenious presentations of the Northern Lights Festival de Febrero is set for Friday, March 4, 7:30 p.m., when Patricia O’Callaghan, a versatile Toronto singer described as both masterful and tender, takes the stage at Auditorio de la Ribera with her longtime collaborators The Gryphon Trio, a well-known, Canadian piano trio that is said to be “redefining chamber music for the 21st century.”
