Ohio is known more for Camaros and acid-washed jeans than a wealth of musical diversity, but when Ohio native Maggie Green tired of studying classical piano and the works of old, dead dudes like Mozart at Michigan State, she turned her attention to jazz, which in turn led to learning Portuguese jazz standards. That¹s right -- she¹s not afraid to sing a Brazilian samba, folks. She even dipped into Russian opera in college, which is way more impressive than perfecting a keg stand. Her group, Canto Poetico, has performed across the Midwest, and now she brings her solo show to South Florida. Check her out at 8 p.m. Sunday, March 21, at Alligator Alley (1321 E. Commercial Blvd., Fort Lauderdale). Admission is free. Call 954-771-2220.
