You're a guy who likes to sing. You have a decent voice and can carry a tune. But so far your greatest performances have taken place in the privacy of your own shower. Well, now it's time to serenade something other than your soap on a rope. The Society for the Preservation and Encouragement of Barber Shop Quartet Singing in America (there's an organization for everything!) is offering four weeks of Singing Lessons to any man who is interested. After the four weeks, you'll be invited to audition for the Miamians' chorus. Classes start at 7:30 p.m. Admission is free. Call 305-270-7464 for location. (NK)

If you are under the mistaken impression that Santeria is a Greek island (that would be Santorini) instead of an Afro-Cuban religion, maybe you should consider attending the Afro-Cuban Lecture Series at Egbe Lukumi (8035 NW 36th St., suite 304), a nonprofit organization dedicated to promoting Afro-Cuban culture. Tonight at 8:00 Paloma Figueroa, author of the book El Poder Yoruba (Yoruba Power), delivers a presentation in English that teaches the primary elements of Afro-Cuban traditions. Learn how slaves were brought to Cuba and explore the influence Africans and the Spanish had and continue to exert on the culture through literature, language, dance, music, food, and cosmology. Admission is ten dollars. Call 305-551-4458. (
