‘Legally Blonde: The Musical’ comes to Tacoma
Fabulously fun and international award-winning “Legally Blonde: The Musical” is the ultimate Broadway tribute to Girl Power!

Gove St., Tacoma.
Hans-Jürgen Schnoor, formerly organist at the St. Marien Kirche to which Bach walked for three days to hear Dietrich Buxtehude, has performed the Goldberg Variations more than 120 times, perhaps more than any other living harpsichordist, and has been working with flutist Jeffrey Cohan for more than three decades.
