It’s a weekend of musical celebration, starting with Friday night’s “Songbird” tribute to Fleetwood Mac at LkldLive. Local musicians will revive the Brit-American collaborative’s songs (mostly from the Buckingham-Nicks years, I’m told.) On Saturday, you can go for high culture at the ISO’s annual Night at the Opera (Gianni Schicchi) at Branscomb Auditorium (Ledger article) or you can help public school musicians who need instruments by attending Play It Forward 2018 at the Polk Theatre (Ledger article).
