The Kalamazoo Mandolin and Guitar Orchestra will play Friday during the Art Hop at the Kalamazoo Valley Museum. I talked with the group’s founding members Jackie Zito and Miles Kusik to find out a little bit more about the mandolin and its ties to Kalamazoo.

Friday night at 6 p.m., the Kalamazoo Jaycees will take residents on a ghost tour through downtown Kalamazoo. Although the tour is mostly historical, it reminds us of just how many haunted tales the city holds.
