Best Cheap Concerts

Area Colleges

When school's in session, excellent entertainment (often free) goes on all the time. Baldwin-Wallace's Conservatory of Music is tops for musical theater (ranked third in the nation). Oberlin puts on great organ concerts (even at midnight on select Fridays, when the majors have "organ pump" night), and Tri-C sponsors cool dance events (especially the free Show Time at High Noon dance series with visiting biggies). Everybody was a nobody before they were somebody, so if you see later-famous performers while they're still in college, you're ahead of the game.(440-826-2369); Oberlin Conservatory Events (440-775-6933); Tri-C Events (216-987-2512).
