• Feeling like that real Ithaca weather is taking its sweet time to unleash its wrath this year? Head on over to Princeton for a performance of Shakespeare’s The Winter’s Tale this weekend. It won’t bring any snow to Cornell, but it will hold you over until the inevitable hits us. The show is this Saturday night from 8 to 10 at Princeton’s Berlind Theatre.
• This weekend, Yale and Harvard are going head to head in a vicious, cutthroat competition! Well, maybe not. But both schools’ Glee Clubs will be putting on a performance in Yale’s Woolsey Hall. The show tonight at 8 will include a great variety of musical selections. Expect music from the 1500s to now, across genres and by a diverse group of composers.
• Are you ready for iJazz? No, this is not Apple’s latest digital music player; it’s Penn Jazz’s heavily anticipated fall performance. To spice things up a bit, jazz and pop a capella group Counterparts will join Penn Jazz in the Class of 1949 Auditorium of Houston Hall. With shows at 7 tonight and 9 p.m. tomorrow, it’ll be double the jazz and double the fun in Philly this weekend.
• There are several criteria to evaluate when judging whether an arts event will be fun. It’s uncommon for an event to get a check in every box, but this weekend’s Asian Street Bazaar at Brown University has it all. Good food, fun games, performances by several groups that run the gamut of entertainment styles. What could make it better? How about that proceeds go to an activist organization with worthy intentions? Head over to Brown’s Sayles Hall tomorrow at 7 p.m. for an event not to be missed.
