Love is in the air. And what''s that with it? In this case, it''s the tantalizing aroma of a tasty spaghetti dinner provided by Zachary''s Restaurant and delicious desserts by Table of Plenty.  


It''s all part of "Crooners, Songbirds and Serenades" Friday, Feb. 13, at 7 p.m. in the Rosenzweig Arts Center''s intimate Omnova Theater. The Columbus Arts Council presents a relaxed evening of dining and entertaining songs from the past, rendered by local crooners and songbirds.  


"Some of those performing include Stanley Harpole and his daughter, Lisa Kropp; Rachel Smith and Rick Rogers; Paul Brady; Margaret Mary Henry; Kenny Dorsey; Debra Atkinson; Ed Swan and Joe Jordan; and Joe St. John," said Beverly Norris, who is helping coordinate the event. 


Performers are busy preparing classic numbers such as "My Funny Valentine," "What a Wonderful World," "My Romance," and "Stormy Monday" to set the right mood.  


"This will be a very special evening in the Omnova Theater," said CAC executive director Rachel Smith. "We look forward to sharing this night of romance with you and yours." 


Tickets are $15 in advance. Seating will be limited; advance ticket purchase is strongly recommended by stopping by the RAC at 501 Main St., or by calling 662-328-2787. Tickets at the door, if available, will be $18.  


Other CAC events on the current calendar include the Young People''s Artist Series performances of "The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe" and "The Snow Girl," A "Dining for Art" Host and Hostess Kick-off Party Feb. 22 and The Mississippi Symphony Orchestra March 28.
