Chick Corea and Béla Fleck will be in concert as part of the Performing Arts Series at the University of the South in Sewanee’s Guerry Auditorium Wednesday, March 27, at 7;30 CDT.

Review for Chick Corea and Béla Fleck:

Chick Corea and Béla Fleck, two master songwriters, musicians, and band leaders meet in a historic duet of piano and banjo. The Grammy-winning duet will combine Corea and Fleck's most recognizable tunes with the music from their Latin Grammy-winning album "The Enchantment." With a mix of jazz and pop standards, crossing a myriad of genres including jazz, bluegrass, rock, flamenco and gospel, this will be a casual, intimate evening with two legends from different musical worlds. 

Fleck’s intense musical curiosity and spirit of innovation have drawn him into nearly every genre of music, stretching the boundaries of each and producing extraordinary collaborations. He has worked in bluegrass, country, jazz and world music, and won multiple Grammy Awards. 

A DownBeat Hall of Famer and NEA Jazz Master, 20-time Grammy winner, and undisputed keyboard virtuoso, Chick Corea has attained living legend status after four decades of unparalleled creativity and artistic output. From straight-ahead to avant-garde, bebop to fusion, children's songs to chamber music, Corea has touched an astonishing number of musical bases while maintaining a singular standard of excellence. 

Tickets are $25/adults; $20/seniors; $10/students, and are available by calling 931.598-1770. More information is online at sewanee.edu/performingarts.

The group, Proyecto X, is the culmination of talent from Carlos Zamora (vocals and ... (click for more)

Olympic Events On The Ocoee River Made History – But It Wasn’t Easy

It started with a simple “what if” question while Atlanta officials were working on a bid to host the 1996 Summer Olympic Games.  A group of amateur kayakers from the city began asking themselves: “What if Atlanta’s bid is successful? Then where would the Olympic whitewater canoe and kayak races be held?”  To some of the members of that group, the answer was obvious. ... (click for more)

Roy Exum: Mr. Siedlecki, Sit Down!

This is a personal thing but one of my pet peeves is the little advertising stickers I sometimes find on the top of the front page of my newspaper. An editor at the newspaper has already determined a bit of news he or she feels I should read. And then the sticker covers it up so I have to peel it off before I can read “All the news that is fit to print.” As I groveled over my ... (click for more)
