Street music can be really sweet music.

The other day, my wife and I took the MARTA to the Woodruff Center for the Arts here in Atlanta, where our granddaughter would be singing and acting in a series of fractured fairy tales as the culminating activity for her 2-week performance camp at the Alliance Theater.
