featuring Rick DellaRatta

A benefit to raise funds for the Cayuga County Chapter of the American Red Cross

Rick DellaRatta is now considered by many to be one of the finest Singer/Pianists performing today and one of only a handful of Jazz Artists who can make a successful musical presentation to a large audience without having to abandon the true art form of Jazz. Through his life long endeavor to help advance people to their highest potential through the understanding of Jazz as well as spreading peace worldwide through his “Jazz for Peace World Tour”, Rick DellaRatta is considered to be an innovator and a visionary.

Jazz for Peace was founded by DellaRatta to help advance people to their highest potential through the understanding of jazz. He brings together multi-cultural musicians to spread the message of peace. Upstate New York is fortunate to welcome this globe- hopping musical ensemble.

The Jazz for Peace concert which begins at 8:00pm and is preceded by a cocktail party at 6pm is sponsored by Mack Studios. Tickets for both the cocktail party and concert are $60 per person. Contact the CCARC at 315 / 252 – 9596 or chapter@ccredcross.org for more information about Give Peace a Chance weekend.

“Earnest is coming!”
The Auburn Players are proud to present Oscar Wilde’s, THE IMPORTANCE OF BEING EARNEST at the Auburn Public Theater  November 13, 14, 15 2009. Directed by Collin Sullivan

“…swift, sardonic repartee in Wilde’s masterpiece ripples through the ages. Probably the wittiest play in the English language.” —Carlyn James New York Times May 2008
The story  revolves around the most ingenious case of “manufactured” mistaken identity ever put into a play. Wilde’s comedic masterpiece satirizes English society in the late Victorian era. Two wealthy young men pretend their names are Earnest in order to impress their beloveds. Audiences have loved this play since it opened in 1895.

Further information about this delightful presentation can be had at www.auburnplayers.net
