It is now officially the spring season!
Grab some goodies and pack up a picnic. Discover new art or music in the evenings after work. Or join a gardening group on the weekend. With the mild temperatures and more sunlight in the day, there is plenty to enjoy and do to welcome the new season.
If you’re not already inspired, why not come out from your hibernation blues and sunny up to some fantastic happenings?
We’ve rounded up some great spring kick-off events taking place around the country. Maybe they’re right in your neighborhood, or will inspire you to look for similar events. Of course, the nonstop spring celebration is always welcomed with ShowClix ticketing.

Virginia Commonwealth University School of the Arts is hosting the third annual Flamenco Festival this spring with brilliant performances to introduce you to the art of Flamenco! Kick off the weekend with a performance featuring the duo Ulrika Frank and Marija Temo on Friday March 23, 2012. Their collaborative performance will dazzle you and your friends as they take their classic and contemporary styles to a new level. Talent, improvisation, and audience interaction will make this a performance you won’t forget.
On Saturday night, enjoy a Flamenco Fiesta on March 24 featuring Michael “Miguelito” Pérez, one of the premier flamenco guitarists in the United States, who’s made it his mission to educate the masses about flamenco music. Because of this, he is offering a free flamenco guitar class on March 24 at 2 pm in the James W. Black Music Center Recital Hall.
And finally, round off your flamenco-filled spring celebration with a Flamenco Finale on March 25 with Sueños Gitanos, an ensemble that takes traditional Flamenco music and infuses it with jazz, samba and tango. If you aren’t doing the flamenco yourself by the end of the weekend, you’ll just have to practice all year and attend the event next spring!
Keith Henderson: Illusions of the King
March 24, 2012 in Roanoke Rapids, NC
Relive the days of hip shaking and rock and roll frenzy as award-winning Keith Henderson presents Illusions of the King in North Carolina at the Roanoke Rapids Theater. Noted as one of the best Elvis Presley impersonators to-date, you’ll think you’re watching the King himself and have sudden cravings for a peanut butter, banana and bacon sandwich.
Don’t get stuck in Heartbreak Hotel—make sure to reserve your tickets for the 3 pm show before the event is sold out! To learn more about Keith Henderson, click here.
Mozart and Copland: Choral Masters
March 25 in Pittsburgh, PA
The Mendelssohn Choir, conducted by Betsy Burleigh, will present Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart’s unfinished Great Mass in C Minor at East Liberty Presbyterian Church. The piece was written by Mozart as appreciation for his marriage, and the life blooming before him. In addition, the Choir will perform Aaron Copland’s In the Beginning. It has been said that Copland’s music is able to define the beauty of America through his music, and what better way to appreciate the beauty than through classical music?
Get your tickets online and save $5 off the door price. Mildred Miller Posvar, the famous mezzo-soprano and founder of Opera Theater of Pittsburgh, will give a free pre-concert talk at 2 pm.
We hope you’ve enjoyed discovering these events that are provided with the ease of ShowClix ticketing. What are some events that you look forward to, now that spring has sprung?
