In my Junior High / Senior High years, the frats and sororities at Northern Michigan University would have an annual spring bash called Greek Week. I can’t say how long this went on or if it continues to this day, but I remember it mostly for the festival like finale that was held at Hedgecock […]

Living on the north end of US 45 makes importing high quality musical programs an expensive proposition.
