Classical guitar @ FAU

It may surprise you, but the guitar existed long before the invention of rock ‘n’ roll. Versions of the six-stringed instrument date back to ancient Babylonia. Florida Atlantic University’s Classical Guitar Society is dedicated to keeping this instrument’s history alive through performances that accentuate its past. This Sunday, the society holds a concert directed by Ken Keaton featuring solo and chamber works including Ian Krouse’s “Music in Four Sharps.” The show serves as FAU’s final Department of Music concert for the season.

FAU Classical Guitar Society: Sunday at 3 p.m. Tickets are $10. Florida Atlantic University, 777 Glades Road, Boca Raton. Info: 800-564-9539 or www.fauevents.com.

SPLURGE

They’re Playing Our Song

There’s nothing like seeing a classic love story brought to life — especially one that makes you and your date laugh. The romantic comedy “They’re Playing Our Song,” written by Neil Simon with music by Marvin Hamlisch, hits the Lake Worth Playhouse stage for its second weekend. The musical tells the tale of a composer, Vernon, and lyricist, Sonia, who meet and, despite their immense differences, fall in love. Each character has his or her own three-person, Greek-style chorus that belts out to the audience the couple’s true feelings.

“They’re Playing Our Song:” Runs through April 30. Tickets start at $29. Lake Worth Playhouse, 713 Lake Ave., Lake Worth. Info: 561-586-6410 or www.lakeworthplayhouse.org.
