CONCERT LISTINGS BY DATE - JANUARY 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 or residents of certain cities free of charge. Events in clubs, bookstores, cafes and other similar venues covered elsewhere generally are not included. This page lists concerts by date for the month of January 2018. 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 January? January and February usually the two quietest months of the year. College, university and symphony performances should return to full schedules by the end of the month, and Lunar New Year celebrations also will start as January ends and February begins. There will be several special events for the Martin Luther King, Jr. holiday, and regular ongoing performances at venues like the Anaheim Packing House and Fisherman's Village continue. There will be only one full site update this month, on January 4, and after that all updates will be on Facebook and Twitter only. 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). For those interested in seeing past summer versions of the site, links are available on the site book preview page.

THIS MONTH'S PHOTOS: The New Year kicks off with two different sets of photos on the concert pages. On the "Concerts By Date" page, winter scenes accompany the concert listings. On the "Concerts By City" page, something a little different. Each year the Aquarium of the Pacific in Long Beach hosts a photographer's night. The program is not free (sorry), but it is open to the public. For the evening the Aquarium is open only to photographers participating in the event. The photos on the "Concerts By City" page were all taken that night.

FACEBOOK/TWITTER POSTS are included in the area below the calendar so that visitors may find concert information and see the most current site updates all on the same page!

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!
