The Insiders: This local music is (possibly) more melodic than our column

We always sort of imagine that you read this column with classical music playing gently in the background, or running serenely through your head. The exquisite melodic nature, the soothing effects, it must be so peaceful. And the music probably isn’t bad, either.

Instead of listening to music while reading today, though, we’ll encourage you to read and then listen to music. In particular, the dynamic tunes played by local musicians Rachel Vogelzang and Brad Myrick, who will headline a show at Chen Yang Li just over the border in Bow tonight at 9 . Vogelzang and Myrick will follow Hank Osborne, who will open the show, and the performance will feature Samuele Rossin and Nicola Cipriani, a pair of musicians visiting from Italy for this week only. Vogelzang and Myrick are key players in the burgeoning local music scene, so stop by and take a listen. Your ears will thank you.

If you want to exercise more than your ears, and you happen to be an early riser, the Concord Family YMCA is hosting a Group Fitness Expo this morning from 8 to 11 a.m. There will be 40-minute classes for all levels – just not those ones you use to make sure you’re hanging a picture straight – and instructors will answer questions following each one. The event is free to members and $5 for nonmembers.

We doubt you’ve been outside tanning this year – though we suppose we can’t rule it out – but if you want some important information on the activity, swing by Red River this morning at 10 for a Teens on Tanning forum, featuring the Melanoma Foundation of New England and the New Hampshire Comprehensive Cancer Collaboration. The event for students will feature myths about tanning, facts about melanoma, first-hand experiences of young melanoma survivors and sun safety and skin cancer prevention tips.
