Friends still tuned in after all these years

Friends share music passion

Friends share music passion

During his second semester at the University of Michigan, John Littlejohn met a cool violist named Anthony Cheung in the cafeteria and they became instant friends.

Years later they both became members of Infinitus (along with Cheung’s brother) and they’ve since been happily scritch-scratching together.

Infinitus will be playing at the Capitol Theatre on Saturday, Jan. 29 at 7:30 p.m. Tickets are $18 for adults, $16 for seniors (65-plus) and are available at the Rollin Art Centre, Echo Centre and Somass Drugs. All tickets at the door are $20.

Capitol turns 75 this year

The Capitol Theatre will be hosting some wonderful entertainers over the coming months as they celebrate 75 years of entertainment in the Alberni Valley. Look for The Snowed in Comedy Tour on Feb. 8, and the return of Carlos Del Junco, the musician that amazed Alberni audiences with his smooth vocals and talented harmonica playing last year, on March 2.

Got books?
