What's Happening from March 21

IMAGINE Beethoven's "Fur Elise" as a techno-pop dance number and Mozart's "Rondo Alla Turca" as bossa nova-samba fusion to get a glimpse into the mind and music of Jason Farnham, the Los Angeles contemporary piano entertainer who styles himself as a living "Schroeder" of Peanuts comic fame. The audience at Farnham's Monday, March 25, performance will also see the showman Farnham play the piano while lying upside down underneath it. Farnham has also been compared to Victor Borge because of his comical style of playing and his toy piano, above, which he brings to every show. Mid-Columbia Community Concerts brings the show to The Dalles. It starts at Gateway Presbyterian Church, at 7 p.m. Details: http://bit.ly/Xz6YqM.
