See the Superstars of Tomorrow/Resurrect Romance Week
Part 1: See The Superstars of Tomorrow
By Shel Horowitz
Theatre, classical music, and team sports lovers--this one's especially for
you. See superb entertainment and sports for free or very cheap by watching
the trainees. Look around for:
This week I attended a student performance put on by Musicorda, one of a dozen or so prominent music festivals within an hour of my house (in this case, a five-minute drive!). These are NOT little kids playing Twinkle Twinkle Little Star! Rather, these folks are in their late teens and early 20s, have chosen careers as musicians, and are studying with some of the brightest lights in the biz.
I walked in five minutes after showtime, just as the announcer was completing the obligatory thank yous. I found a seat in the second row, center, and sat back to enjoy an hour of heavenly music. One of the performers will be the new violist with the internationally-acclaimed St. Petersburg String Quartet in his native Russia--and there was someone else on the program who was even better!
Only about 70 people took advantage of this wonderful FREE concert--but I bet that if some of those 70 save their programs, five years from now there will be some superstars on the list.
Part 2: Resurrect Romance Week, August 8-14: A New Romantic Summer Holiday
by Michael "The RoMANtic" Webb
What's so romantic about buying a dozen roses or a box of chocolates on February 14th just because 50 million other guys are doing the same thing? Is it really a celebration or is it just an obligation? Six months after Valentine's Day comes a holiday not as well known, but one that puts more emphasis on romance and less on the credit card.
Four years ago National Resurrect Romance Week was established by Michael Webb, syndicated columnist, lecturer and Editor of The RoMANtic newsletter (www.TheRomantic.com). His reasoning was that "real romance has little to do with money and obligations. It has everything to do with intention and attention. Women want what's in a man's heart, not what's in his wallet and they want it more than once or twice a year."
Dubbed "The World's Most Romantic Man" by media around the globe, Webb suggests that men and women across the country to do something romantic each day during Resurrect Romance Week and advises that you show your love with actions, not gifts.
