FIRST THINGS ENCORE

Something Stringed

Guitarist Jesse Cook coming to State Jesse Cook wants to take you places you haven’t been

before, with his music at least. The award-winning master guitarist, who travels the globe looking for sounds that resonate with him, will perform Jan. 16 at the State Theatre, 404 S. Burdick St. Cook is known for his fusion of various kinds of world music and has released 10 albums, garnering 11 Juno (Canada’s Grammy) nominations — and one win, in 2001 for Free Fall — in the World Music and Instrumental categories. Tickets for the show, which begins at 8 p.m., are $34.50– $49.50. For more information or to buy tickets, visit kazoostate.com.

Something Wintry

KSO combines spirits and Schubert What’s better than spending a winter evening with some wine or beer and Schubert? Not much, so it’s a good thing the Kalamazoo Symphony Orchestra will have three events this month to quench your thirst and fill your ears. KSO artists and a guest vocalist will perform Schubert’s song cycle Winterreise (Winter’s Journey) Jan. 18 and 19. The Jan. 18 performance is a Classics on Tap event featuring craft brews at Bell’s Eccentric Café’s Back Room. It begins at 8 p.m., and tickets are $25. If wine is more your thing, then check out the Classics Uncorked events at 3 and 8 p.m. Jan. 19 at the Jolliffe Theatre in the Epic Center, 359 S. Kalamazoo Mall. These events will feature wine and desserts, and tickets are $40. For tickets or more information, visit kalamazoosymphony.com or call 349-7759. Imagine a peaceful place where you can relax, refocus, or rejuvenate at the beginning or end of each day. With a custom closet, you can treat yourself to a personal haven right in your home.
