CONCERT LISTINGS BY DATE - NOVEMBER 2018


The listings on the site are for free concerts and music-related events in Orange County, parts of Los Angeles County, and parts of the Inland Empire. Most of the events listed are offered to the general public free of charge. Events in clubs, bookstores, cafes and other similar venues covered elsewhere generally are not included. Please remember that although every attempt is made to bring you the most current concert information, all schedules are subject to change. It is recommended that you confirm any performance you wish to attend.

     What's coming in November? The first week of the month brings the final round of Dia de los Muertos celebrations, and the second week kicks off the first holiday events of the year! Take time to thank a Veteran at one of the many Veterans Day events, then get ready to celebrate the season! Especially after mid-month, the schedules will be full of tree lighting ceremonies, holiday concerts and much, much more. Instead of being on the first and third Thursdays of the month, this month's updates will be on November 8 and 15, and there will not be an update over the Thanksgiving weekend. As always, the music at the events listed is free (though the food vendors, rides and other activities found at most of the festivals and fairs are not). The 2018 summer version of the site still is available for viewing by going to www.dorothyswebsite.org/2018index.html.

ONE FINAL THOUGHT ON THE CONCERTS: All of the concerts in the listings are free to the general public, and there are some truly outstanding programs. However, many of the groups and organizations sponsoring these concerts incur substantial costs in bringing them to you year after year. Donations which allow them to continue their tradition of bringing quality music to the general public at no charge are appreciated.


. . . AND ONE REQUEST FOR VISITORS: Survey forms are sometimes passed out at concerts/event venues, and the question "How did you hear about this event?" is often asked. If you are attending an event you found on this site and receive such a form, it would be much appreciated if you let them know that you found the information on www.dorothyswebsite.org. Thank you!
