Looking for something to do this coming week? Choose from a variety of live entertainment and venues: a band under the shady elm trees in downtown Prescott, chamber music in the air-conditioned Prescott Public Library, or with children learning about a deep, strange-sounding native instrument at the Prescott Valley Public Library.
The Daily Courier offers a “7 in 7” look ahead, printed each Wednesday, of seven events happening around the Quad Cities in the next seven days.
Some need RSVPs, and this week, all are free.
