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.

     What's coming in March? The weather is still a bit uncertain as we begin the month, so March may turn out to be a bit of a quiet month as well. There will be St. Patrick's Day and Women's History Month celebrations, symphony performances, Mardi Gras events and more. Remember that especially in case of rain, all events should be confirmed prior to attending. In the Fall/Winter/Spring, the site usually is updated on the first and third Thursdays of the month.

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!
