Any previous experience and even Annie. Best talent if they like the staying with a place that. And tell -- where you perform once the course gets together. Well we generally do a basic apartment is went a concert. And -- been in contact and generally those -- the respect of all but sometimes their area churches. And this year we're doing a Broadway concert in college. The quiet little thing probably chickens and and that the children individuals and that's what that it can't it is still looked as well.

Reductions or additional children and family and we have tuition reductions -- scholarship but those. In financial need we don't turn anyone away if they hand today.

Yes and -- we're going to have the man who is the musical director of that on in just few minutes right. Will -- I'm going to be listening for that to let's talk movies said. Well I think what you have is very very important that it's the thirtieth. Anniversary ghost busters. To -- now I can't. Well it is the huge relief they're willing to get all across the country -- since four K. Which is defined and to mean mine my nephews and talk to -- it's -- -- said it's very very high definition. -- think of. I am very very very high definition. That -- Why why they're releasing it he said of altitude. It's Bill Murray is Dan Dan Aykroyd it's held Raman is any pot it's Sigourney Weaver -- It's authority for thirtieth anniversary they're going to happen it's all remastered. The great one liners all there. And they that wonderful song so it's a fun thing to go to the movies this weekend. Outlook I would by -- I mean I've seen ghost busters about once or twice a year ever since I was. But it is a classic in I truly never gets old. And don't ever ever. It's about half a recommendation -- people wanna go have fun there they -- too great to see that the cumulative that are out there that. You need to be a little caution. You think I am well one of them is November man is stole our peers abroad and basically you have an -- the plot is an ex CIA agent who emerges from retirement to protect witness. It's -- cat and mouse spy thriller based on the novel. So there's action there's bull that they and their peers their Switzerland. Arm and that's about it. Here's one of the reviews about of this Bronson -- past sixty years old is director. Is just -- -- -- And if you go to the movie about the limitations of being young and inexperienced. This is the movie. A McDonald's. My money I say written. The Bourne identity the Bourne supremacy. Any of the importance of these and enjoy I think you'll be a lot more. There's another movie that distance being -- this weekend it's called at the above so below. Really interesting historic hook. There are these tactical and her a lot of people know about them where there's all the of these buried bodies. They're like six stories below the city. This movie has the the plot of it is that. There of these eat eat -- homes for these countless -- in the maze of bones in this secret city. And there's a journey that goes for. As one critic however called it it's and -- admirable. Indiana bones. -- -- -- -- -- It is he -- humid in the commercials I don't think it has any identity of whether it wants to be spooky horror movies. A historic Indiana Jones that have an action movie. It has a an idea it has these settings and it claustrophobic. Feel. But otherwise he doesn't have a good group to do it what a waste of good -- I basically. It is a good -- and and -- if you intrigued by it. Get some popcorn and go see it it would be something fun. But definitely not the November man. I yet now in is not. I can't see that it's one that I can recommend -- your really like -- Clothing humane stated in Italy is not a reason to zero. To -- him for -- -- on the big screen. Yes what about I'm just looking and I. Some movie called land ho. Land -- a movie with a couple of older is distorted about a couple older gentleman. Who all are. I haven't seen it yet so. Give -- second to catch up with the. Is this the brother and brother in law -- Iceland's. The Icelandic Brothers. We're and it yes that's right yeah we talked about this real briefly almost -- maybe a month ago or something. So it is another one of these road movies he did is he. Engaged audience that they're going to war and right now is Angela is. One of the times -- a lot of movies that are not ready for award seasons that amount. And it's not the big act in teen movies that the small niche movies that. Because people love going to that is -- -- Small movies are great. That's how like shell came to debate it. The hundred foot journey. The other two. -- and all this is a lot of movies that are gonna come out to sort of fill the gap until the opt to movies -- ball shall. End. Couple things beginning now that I haven't seen yet. And I recommend you know this. -- in the reasonable that your audience out there you know everybody is listening they have kids in high school at the game tonight.

There's two that I recommend people into the temple and we'd love breaking bad is deserved every award. Com. And the last season now being streamed on Netflix seeking kept up on that. But all that and if 16 pole awards. They're the BBC series called Sherlock that -- happen. Yes they were winning right left via. He got -- actor supporting actor. Got on directing it got a cinematographer. He got a lot of -- towards. It's a wonderful -- and if he gets you'd both extremes Britain that is not for everybody. Sherlock and the BBC -- about.
