More than holiday music

Posted at 7:53 AM on December 25, 2007 by Julia Schrenkler

Take a break from the holiday muzak and the snow. Travel back to a hot August day (set the WABAC Machine dials to August 21, 1965) for the Beatles' one-night stand in Bloomington. You'll find Metropolitan Stadium still stands and a time when boy's hair that brushed the top of a collar was considered crazylong.

See the slideshow of Bill Carlson's pictures over an interview with Tom Crann: The Beatles play Metropolitan Stadium

How can anyone think classical music is boring?

Classical never sleeps!

* Beer Bottle Orchestra (Comparing Notes blog) Make it a family moment - call everyone to the monitor! If The Melbourne Symphony can have a little fun, you can enjoy it, too.
* Orchestral fans take a swing at conducting a virtual orchestra (MPR News) They make it look so easy, don't they.
* Classical music seeks new audiences (MPR Midmorning) Fred Child talks facts and figures, not just controversy.

Just a couple more music-related items for those who need a break from carols.
