Yiannis Hrysomallis (that's Yanni to you) would prefer that we not call his inspiring, meditative brand of music "New Age." The term has too many unfair implications, he says. Like "you have to have incense and a couple of crystals to enjoy it." Behind the PBS specials and Olympic Game pump-ups is a man who just wants to perform meaningful music for his devoted fans. Monday, he'll play songs from an expansive catalog, including material from his latest instrumental work, Truth of Touch, alongside a 17-piece orchestra at the Straz Center in Tampa. $39.50-$129.50. (813) 229-7827.

It's worth the drive south to catch Chicago's famous sketch comedy theater, Second City, perform "Fair and Unbalanced," an unbridled comic look at the foibles of politicians, celebrities and relationships.
