The Balaton Chamber Brass, an instrumental duo comprised of the husband-and-wife team of Dan and Amy Cherry, will present a free concert Tuesday, Feb. 14, at Western Carolina University.

The performance will begin at 7:30 p.m. in the recital hall of WCU’s Coulter Building.

With Amy Cherry on trumpet and Dan Cherry on trombone, the couple presented their first concert as the Balaton Chamber Brass last fall. They will be accompanied during the Valentine’s Day performance by pianist Brad Martin. All three musicians are members of WCU’s music faculty.


Edie Kleinpeter of Hiawassee and Steven Jones of Blairsville are looking forward to presenting a Valentine’s treat. They will be doing a fund raiser, a readers theater production of “Love Letters” on Sunday, February 12 at the Hinton Center. This award-winning, touchingly funny play follows the relationship of two people who remain close to each other through life long letters. The play takes place in a time before e-mail and texting, when people actually took time to write a letter. The play is often presented in New York with various actors taking part.


Elementary school-aged children and their families are invited to a free ARTSaturday workshop and Valentine party on Saturday February 11, 10:00 till noon, in the Macon County Public Library children’s wing. Make-and-take projects include 3-D valentine cards and decorations, with music by keyboardist Lionel Caynon. The event is dedicated to the memory of long-time ARTSaturday volunteer Jeanie Whitehead. There’s no pre-registration; children should wear play clothes and come as close to 10:00 as possible. The Library’s Valentine party starts at 11 :00. Adults stay with their children.


The Arts and Cultural Events Series at Western Carolina University will present “La Pasion Flamenca” at 7:30 p.m. Monday, Feb. 13, in the John W. Bardo Fine and Performing Arts Center.

Presented by the Flamenco Vivo Carlota Santana dance company, the program of Spanish dance and music features solos, duets and company dances and is meant to evoke a journey through the cultural crossroads of Andalusia, the southern region of Spain where the flamenco dance originated. Dance Magazine has called Carlota Santana, the company's artistic director, the “keeper of the flamenco.”
