Betsy's picks for Sept. 19:

What happens when some of the world’s greatest writers get together? Murder, that’s what!

The Warner Robins Little Theatre is bringing some of the literary world’s greatest writers to life in Murder By the Book, an exciting mystery/comedy on stage September 19 through the 21st. Bring the family and find out who will win the Raven Society’s coveted Smoking Gun Award…and who is trying the kill the competition.

Murder By the Book, Presented by Warner Robins Little Theatre, By Craig Sodaro, September 19-21, 2013, 8:00 PM. For tickets or more information, call (478) 929-4579 or visit www.wrlt.org.

The Robert McDuffie Center for Strings 2013-2014 Fabian Concert Series begins this Tuesday with the world-renowned Brentano Quartet.

The most exciting piece on the program is surely Claude Debussy’s String Quartet in g minor, a piece that gave the world its first peek at Debussy’s impressionistic composing style, very different from the music composed before him by classical music giants such as Beethoven, Brahms and Mozart.

Initial reactions to the quartet ranged from praise to bewilderment and scorn. These critiques led him to focus on writing for the full orchestra, and not long after he composed his most memorable compositions including Prelude to the Afternoon of a Fawn and La Mer.

Fabian Concert Series President the Brentano Quartet, September 23, 2013, 7:30 PM Fickling Hall, McCorkle Music Building, Mercer University. For tickets or more information, call (478) 301-5470, or visit tickets.mercer.edu.
