Rock-theater originator Trans-Siberian Orchestra is preparing to rock Toledo with its Winter 2011 tour.

The symphonic rock group will showcase its unique combination of story-telling, virtuoso musicianship, and over-the-top production at the Huntington Center Wednesday. Shows begin at 4 and 8 p.m.

Tickets range from $29 to $57.50 plus fees. For tickets call 877-264-3007.

THE COLLINGWOOD Arts Center will host jazz, blues, and boogie-woogie pianist Matthew Ball Sunday for a family-friendly concert.

Admission is $10 for the 70-minute show which will begin at 2 p.m.

For tickets and information call 419-244-2787.

FORMER ERactor Anthony Edwards and Steven Kellogg, children's book artist and author, will visit the University of Findlay Saturday for a celebration honoring Kellogg's work.

In July, the Mazza Museum at the University of Findlay acquired 2,700 pieces of original art by Kellogg, in part through a $350,000 gift from Edwards, a childhood friend of Kellogg.

A public presentation is slated for 7 p.m. in Winebrenner Theological Seminary.

Tickets are $5 and are available by calling the museum at 419-434-5521. Kellogg has written or collaborated on about 120 books, including Island of the Skog, Johnny Appleseed, A Rose for Pinkerton, How Much is a Million, and The Day Jimmy's Boa Ate the Wash.
