WNRN Culture Connection for Jan 19 – 25

Its January and loosing weight is on many people’s minds so now is a great time to learn about GMO’s via a film at the Central Branch of the Library, work off some calories biting your nails at Arena Racing or give it up altogether and have a great meal and watch a funny play.

WNRN Culture Connection Jan 12 – 18

Photographic portraits of Middle Eastern women, Pianist Adam Golka, and the VCCA open house are on this week’s cultural radar as winter keeps us indoors for the most part.  But the days are getting longer and before you know it little green leaves will appear on trees, flowers will bloom and birds will be making a racket in the wee hours of the morning.

If you would like more information on the featured events, click on the links below.  To hear a podcast of this week’s Culture Connection, go to: http://www.wnrn.org/2015/01/wnrn-culture-c…-january-12-18/ and click on the “play” triangle at the bottom of the page.

Note: Over the weekend I went to see Taming of the Shrew at ASC in Staunton and it was a hoot.  I totally recommend it.

Stay warm and get some indoor culture in this week.
