JAZZ UP YOUR TUESDAY: The Boys and Girls Club of New Haven needs your help. And for that help, they're willing to ply you with an evening of music and wine. Head to Leon's of New Haven tonight, for the Boys and Girls Club annual "Wine and Jazz" fundraiser. The evening will feature a tasting of international wines and music from students from the Cooperative Arts and Humanities High School. There will also be door prizes, a raffle and both silent and revers silent auctions. The theme of the Boys and Girls Club of New Haven's 2010 annual campaign is "Reaching Back to Move Forward." It reflects a back to basics approach that the club is taking in its service to youth by nurturing and helping young people acquire the fundamental skills they will need to succeed in life.
SOUNDS FROM THE CHAMBER: As we've said before here at WYDT, you can never go wrong with live music. And it never hurts when there are talented musicians providing the entertainment. That's what you can expect tonight if you find yourself in Simsbury. The 2010 season of the Simsbury Chamber Music Festival kicks off tonight. The festival is a series of four concerts, held every Tuesday night at the First Church of Christ. Tonight's performance features the Kelet Duo (comprised of violinist Katalin Viszmeg and pianist Pi-Hsun Shih), who are set to perform everything from Peter and the Wolf, to music from the Charlie Chaplin film, "Modern Times." Tickets for the show are $15. 7:30pm.
GIRLS(S), GIRLS(S), GIRLS(S): Here's one for lovers of the theater. Head to Kendall Drama Lab at SCSU in New Haven starting tonight, to check out Some Girl(s), a dark romantic comedy by Neil Labute ("In the Company of Men," "Nurse Betty"). The play revolves around a single man's search for his heart's destiny. Engaged to a 22-year-old nurse, the 33-year-old man decides to revisit some of the women he's loved and left. The show runs through Sunday. Tickets are $10. Tonight's show is at 8pm.
