ExpandSherrie Maricle and the Diva Jazz Orchestra
April 2, 2015, 7:30 p.m.
For musician Sherrie Maricle, her drum set is a real-life metaphor for her career. Just as playing the drums requires coordinating four limbs at the same time, Maricle’s career coordinates successes as a jazz artist, composer, music director and teacher. And it is from behind the drums that she leads The DIVA Jazz Orchestra. With her band, she has performed at many of the world’s most acclaimed music venues and major jazz festivals throughout the United States and abroad. DIVA has been featured on “CBS Sunday Morning” with Charles Osgood, and was presented on the televised “25th Anniversary of the Kennedy Center.”

ExpandMichael Bolton
April 6, 2015, 7:30 p.m.
If you listed performers who have sold more than 53 million records, won multiple Grammys, earned a star on Hollywood’s Walk of Fame, sold out arenas worldwide, sung with Luciano Pavarotti and Ray Charles, written songs with Bob Dylan, penned hits for Barbra Streisand and KISS, as well as played guitar with B.B. King, Michael Bolton would be the only name on that list. Known for his soulful voice and poignant lyrics and his timeless style, Michael has always been attracted to a wide array of musical categories, from Sinatra favorites (“Bolton Swings Sinatra”), to classical arias (“My Secret Passion”), which achieved No. 1 on the classical charts for six consecutive weeks. His most recent studio album features an authentic approach to Motown and soulful classics, as well as original songs written in the same vein.

ExpandIndigo Girls

Twenty years after they began releasing records as the Indigo Girls, Amy Ray and Emily Saliers have politely declined the opportunity to slow down with age. With a legacy of releases and countless U.S. and international tours behind them, the Indigo Girls have forged their own way in the music business. After signing to Epic Records in 1988, the Indigo Girls released their critically acclaimed eponymous album to thunderous praise; it remained on the Billboard Hot 100 chart for 35 weeks, earned double platinum status, received a Grammy nomination for “Best New Artist” and won “Best Contemporary Folk Recording.” Having sold more than 14 million records, Amy and Emily are still going strong and remain the only duo with top 40 titles on the Billboard 200 in the ’80s, ’90s, ’00s and ’10s.

ExpandSpring Native Plant Sale
April 18, 2015;  April 19, 2015;  April 25, 2015;  April 26, 2015
Choose from an incredible array of beautiful and unusual native plants for a variety of garden sites, from wet ponds to dry rock gardens. Many of these are excellent plants for attracting butterflies, hummingbirds and other wildlife to your yard. Native plants are good choices for area gardeners because such plants tolerate the area’s weather and serve as food and shelter for area wildlife, while also providing a good show in the garden. The Virginia Living Museum’s horticulture staff holds this annual sale as a fund-raiser, but the real goal is to introduce the gardening public to the incredible variety of native plants that will do well in the landscape, and to educate them about those which are better left in the wild. All plants are nursery propagated and many are not yet available in the commercial nursery trade. Sale held rain or shine.

In addition to his fiction, he’s written three non-fiction books, comics and TV scripts. Meltzer also hosts “Brad Meltzer’s Decoded” on the History Channel. Raised in Brooklyn and Miami, Brad is a graduate of the University of Michigan and Columbia Law School. His newest book, “The Fifth Assassin,” is about a serial killer re-creating the crimes of all the presidential assassins from John Wilkes Booth to Lee Harvey Oswald. His first novel sits on a shelf at home, published via a copier store.
