Northwest Coast Native art isn't the only focus of the new Walter Soboleff Building, but it's likely to be the aspect that draws in the most visitors. For non-Natives hoping to gain a better understanding of Tlingit, Haida and Tsimshian cultures, the artwork is a good place to start, offering an introduction to foundational concepts such as balance and harmony.

When we attend concerts by the Juneau Symphony Orchestra, we see clusters of people playing similar instruments but don't hear them individually. Every spring, the Symphony Showcase gives us the opportunity to hear some of them in small ensembles or as soloists. When I arrived at Aldersgate United Methodist Church April 19 to hear this year's offering, I was pleasantly surprised to find that all of the spaces in the parking lot had been taken. That suggested a full sanctuary, and, indeed, an enthusiastic audience was gathered to enjoy an exceptional performance.

This weekend, a plan to attend the 2015 Alaska State Improv Festival, known in shorthand as AS IF, is a plan for spontaneity. Seventeen improvisational theater groups from around the country are coming to Juneau for the festival. One will impersonate Franz Kafka. One will narrate history, drunk. One, from Sitka, will potentially pull you up onstage.

Banjos, guitars, mandolins, voices: the 41st annual Alaska Folk Festival starts Monday, April 6, and for the next week there won't be many in Juneau who spend a day without tapping their feet or just getting up and dancing - or, of course, performing.

Festival season is upon us in Southeast Alaska. This weekend, Skagwegians will welcome hundreds to their community for the Buckwheat Ski Classic, marking winter's end with a distinctive celebration of snow. Next weekend, Ketchikan will celebrate a harbinger of spring - the Rufous hummingbird - with the start of its month-long Alaska Hummingbird Festival. And the week after that, beginning April 6, it's the Alaska Folk Festival in Juneau - the official kick-off to warmer weather for many. From there, a different festival will be taking place somewhere in Southeast nearly every weekend through September. The CCW will be putting out its annual Fun & Festival Guide next month, but to help readers keep track of what's happening on a weekly basis, we've introduced a Southeast Spotlight box on page 2, highlighting a major event or festival in a Southeast community for the coming week. This spotlight will supplement our What's Happening listings on page 3.

I am a big fan of Theatre in the Rough's productions of Shakespeare, and this new production of "Henry V" does not disappoint. A sometimes brilliant director, Aaron Elmore knows these plays better than anyone else in Juneau and always seems to uncover new facets to Shakespeare's lines. So let me say right off the bat: Go see this play. It's one of Shakespeare's masterpieces, and our Theatre-in-the-Ruffians do a good job of bringing it to life.

I've mentioned in several columns that my dear friends Elizabeth and Michael hail from the great state of Louisiana. In Midgi-speak that translates to "oh my gosh, I bet they can cook." I'm pleased to report they can. Nothing makes me smile bigger than when I get a text from either Elizabeth or Michael asking me to dinner. This is joy to my heart and I know it will be a party for my taste buds.
