Classical music fans will want to know that a well-regarded musical group is performing a concert in Elyria on Sunday. And it’s hard to argue with the price — free.

I recently "˜discovered' a group called Fleet Foxes.

Nice harmonies and they sounded to me like a combo of early Yes with a touch of Moody Blues.

Amazon described them in part as "˜... a group trafficking in baroque harmonic pop.'
