Ten Day Planner

Kronos Quartet with Wu Man, Big Ears, Knoxville, March 2015

 

As events are opening up, we’re listing a combination of virtual and live events. The rules are the same – if you want your event included, please make a Facebook event, invite me (Alan Sims – you’ll have to friend me) and it will be included. I need enough lead time that the list can be put together the Wednesday before you want your event included.

Please continue to be careful out there! Cases are rising and include some people who have been vaccinated. Hospitalizations and deaths are increasing among the unvaccinated. You know when you need to mask up. You know we all need to be vaccinated. Do it and let’s keep the fun times rolling!Sunday, September 19
