Sen. Elliot Werk, D-Boise, may wear his tails and a wig as he conducts "All I Want for Christmas is You," Thursday at the South Auditorium.
The hour-long free concert begins at 7 p.m. at 3101 W. Cassia Street in Boise.
I asked Werk, who is balding, whether he might wear a wig fashioned after famed conductor Arturo Toscanini. Said Werk: "I’m considering wearing my tails as would befit the occasion! And I’ll always consider wearing a wig!"
Werk was invited by South Jr. High Orchestra Director Stephanie Slater and Werk will be honored for his contributions to the community and Boise School District.
