  Kalamazoo Symphonic Musicians are enthusiastic about presenting a summer park concert on Friday night to benefit Kalamazoo Loaves and Fishes and the Kalamazoo Gospel Mission. Organized independently by the musicians, who recently came to an agreement after an extended dispute with KSO management, it's the first outdoor symphonic concert since 2010. Conductor Andrew Koehler says it's a "trip around the world" program featuring audience favorites by Strauss, Bizet, Copland, Puccini, and Brahms.

Farmers Alley Theatre, which was founded by four theater veterans - Adam Weiner, Rob Weiner, Jeremy Koch, and Denene Mulay Koch - begins its ninth season on September 30. In a conversation with Cara Lieurance, Rob Weiner and Jeremy Koch say their mission to produce thought-provoking, entertaining live theater in an intimate setting has expanded. Four years ago, the theater began an association with the Actor's Equity Association, the professional union for actors on Broadway and other major theater centers. This has allowed local casts to mix with seasoned professionals.

Jean Watson has recorded albums in Nashville and performed her music in the British Isles and beyond, but West Michigan audiences rarely get the chance to hear her as a solo artist. That changes tonight, when the singer/violinist performs on the "Cool Concerts on Thursday Nights" series.
