Quote of the Week:
Time is usually wasted in the same way every day. - Paul Meyer
From Mitch Gershenfeld, CEO of the McCallum:
"I would like to offer free tickets to a concert at the McCallum this week for all of your music students, particularly sax players and jazz students. The concert is:
Euge Groove with Special Guest Star Elliott Yamin
Tue, March 3, 8pm
Sax man Euge Groove has performed with Tina Turner, Joe Cocker and Tower of Power, and his albums have topped the Contemporary Jazz charts. Soulful singer Elliott Yamin placed third on American Idol and his Platinum-selling single “Wait for You” was a Top 10 hit. Together, they equal an amazing night of music.
Simply have your students identify them at our box office at 7:30 PM, and they will get a ticket. If they have parents coming to transport them to the theater, we will give tickets to them too."
