The Formosa Singers will be visiting from Taiwan, and their visit includes a concert in Palo Alto. Here are the details (h/t SY); the concert is about a month out and during a period when not that much is going on. (Hmm, nothing about the cost of the concert.)

Where: First United Methodist Church, located at 625 Hamilton Avenue in Palo Alto, CA
