Since my time is Costa Rica is slowly coming to an end, I figured that those of you still sticking around this beautiful country would want to know about upcoming musical events happening in Costa Rica.  I sadly, have not yet had the pleasure to attend a concert at the Teatro Nacional so I am hoping that I can live vicariously through some of you.  The best part about these upcoming concerts is that some of them are free which is perfect for a college student’s non-existing budget.  Also, there are performances ranging from Romantic Operas to contemporary musical artists to accommodate everyone’s musical tastes.
