    - KRISTIN CHENOWETH JOINS THE LOUISVILLE ORCHESTRA FOR A VALENTINE’S WOW EVENT!
    Valentine’s Weekend Performance with the Louisville Orchestra Saturday, February 13
    The Louisville Orchestra is pleased to announce that Kristin Chenoweth, star of film, Broadway and television, will perform from her Coming Home tour, at the Kentucky Center on Saturday, February 13 at 8PM. which features hits from Wicked, Glee and a program of Broadway and Pop standards with the orchestra.
    Single tickets start at $35 and are now available by calling 502.584.7777 or by visiting LouisvilleOrchestra.org.
    Highlights of the Coming Home concert with the Louisville Orchestra include powerful new renditions of “Popular” and “For Good,” both of which Chenoweth introduced in her starring role in the Broadway smash Wicked. She also brings fresh energy and emotion to such venerable standards as Lerner and Loewe’s “I Could Have Danced All Night,” Harold Arlen and Yip Harburg’s “Over the Rainbow,” Jerome Kern and Oscar Hammerstein’s “All the Things You Are,” and the more recent show tunes “Bring Him Home,” from Les Misérables; and “Wishing You Were Somehow Here Again,” from Phantom of the Opera.

    “I can’t just sing a song for no reason, so I only choose songs that mean something to me,” Chenoweth states. “For example, I chose ‘My Coloring Book’ because when I was in college, my voice teacher didn’t think I understood the song, and told me to pull it out one day when I did. So I’m singing it all these years later, and she was there to witness it. I also like to reintroduce songs that people may not be familiar with, like Stephen Foster’s ‘Hard Times,’ which is from 1853 but sounds like it could have been written today. And I love to do songs that people wouldn’t expect from me, like ‘Enough Is Enough’.”
    The LO WOW! series is generously sponsored by Pharmarica. This Kristin Chenoweth, Coming Home concert has received additional support from Morgan Stanley.

  • | NATL - Sports and Entertainment
    - Air Canada Centre, Toronto, ON, Canada. 65th annual. The NBA All-Star Game is held outside the United States for the first time in its history when squads representing the Eastern and Western Conference tip off at the home of the Toronto Raptors. The All-Star weekend kicks off Feb 12th with the Sprint All-Star Celebrity Game and the BBVA Rising Stars Challenge. Est attendance 100,000.

    - St. Valentine's Day celebrates the feasts of two Christian martyrs of this name. One, a priest and physician, was beaten and beheaded on the Flaminan Way at Rome, Italy, Feb 14, AD 269, during the reign of Emperor Claudius II. Another Valentine, the bishop of Terni, is said to have been beheaded, also on the Flaminian Way at Rome, Feb 14 (possibly in a later year). Both history and legend are vague and contradictory about details of the Valentines, and some say that Feb 14 was selected for the celebration of Christian martyrs as a diversion from the ancient pagan observance of Lupercalia. An old legend has it that birds choose their mates on Valentine's Day. Now it is one of the most widely observed unofficial holidays. It is an occasion for the exchange of gifts (usually books, flowers, or sweets) and greeting cards with affectionate or humorous messages.

    - President's Day observes the birthdays of George Washington (Feb 22nd) and Abraham Lincoln (Feb 12). With the adoption of the Monday Holiday Law (which moved the observance of George Washington's birthday from Feb 22 to the third Monday in February), some of the specific significance of the event was lost and added impetus was given to the popular description of that holiday as President's Day as a day to honor all former presidents of the US, though the federal holiday is still Washington's Birthday. Annually, the third Monday in February.

  • - A 1,210-pound bomb packed in a van exploded in the underground parking garage of the World Trade Center in New York City, killing six people and injuring more than 1,000 (mostly from smoke inhalation). The powerful blast left a crater 200 feet wide and several stories deep. The cost for damage to the building and disruption of business for the 360 companies with offices in the Center exceeded $591 million. Fifteen people - the fundamentalist Muslim cleric Sheik Omar Abdul Rahman and 14 of his followers were indicted for the bombing. Rahman was given a life sentence, and the others received prison terms of up to 240 years each.

    - In 2016 we add one day, February 29th, to bring our calendar more nearly into accord with the seasons. Under the Julian calendar of 46 BC every forth year was a leap year, on the assumption that it took Earth 365.25 days to orbit the sun. However, Earth's orbit period is actually 365.24219 days. For more than 1,600 years the Julian calendar was used, the calendar got out of sync with the seasons. The Gregorian calendar made just one small change: a leap day is added to the calendar every four years except for century years that are not exactly divisible by 400. Traditionally leap year is a time during which women may propose marriage to men.
