In addition to bringing you indie books, we also keep our eyes/ears open for info about other cultural events that might be of interest. Here are two free events you might want to check out this weekend:
Boston College Arts Festival 2021: Chamber Music Showcase, Friday, April 30, 5:30 p.m. Eastern Time. Please note that the website says "in-person events are closed to the public," but this is a virtual event, and the website includes a link to the livestream, so I say, Give it a try!
Metropolitan Opera on Demand: Ongoing. Each night of the week the Met Opera will release a different encore presentation for free on their website. Each performance is available for a period of 23 hours. You can currently watch an encore performance of Manon at no cost. The free performance changes daily though, and is mixed in with pay-for-view performances, so be sure to look for the performance labeled "Nightly Opera Stream." That's the free one!
