Bonjour à nos amis! Here is yet another Friday, and we hope you’re all ready to ring in the next two days of free time. You can dance, you can sing, you can create artwork, you can fight aliens or go canoeing or put a bounty on someone’s head.

And while the budgets might have gotten smaller, the music department still seems to have the same latitude to spend.
