My gosh! I don’t know about you, but I can’t believe that Thanksgiving was over a week ago! Yikes! Where did the time go!? Here we have been busy with Christmas decorating and point and click Christmas shopping. That way early worms get packages delivered in timely manner! Oh I love the internet and shopping from a chair! But with all of that, I neglected posting about Oberlin and Lorain County happenings. And a lot is going on!
When you visit Oberlin this Friday, Dec. 7, you will have to choose between two superb engagements. One is the world renowned Takacs Quartet, (see an earlier post) which will perform in Finney Chapel as part of the Oberlin College Artist Recital Series. The quartet, in it’s 31st season, is known for it’s intense, engaging music that can leave the audience emotionally spent. They are critically acclaimed and have produced many multi-award winning recordings. Friday’s program will feature two striing quartets – Haydn’s “C Major, Op. 74” and Bartok’s “Quartet No. 5” – plus Mozart’s “Clarinet Quintet in A Major. The guest artist will be Franklin Cohen of the Cleveland Orchestra.

Your other choice is the theater and dance performance at Hall Auditorium. This production – “Measure for Measure” by William Shakespeare, is his darkest comedy, examining contemporary issues of society. The public’s ticket price is $8.00 for early purchase or $11.00 at the door. More details can be found at http://www.oberlin.edu/cgi-bin/cgiwrap/events/calendar.pl?display=college&which=&s=0&_e=17548.
There will also be many student and faculty recitals for you to enjoy as well as a quaint down town where you can shop for one of a kind Christmas gifts. We may be a small town in Ohio but we are a class act town! Come out and visit! You know you want to! You’ll be glad you did!
