Moon Flight: Review of Fly Me to the Moon
Tonight: Fly Me to the Moon!
An evening of JAZZ/silent auction/drinks/hors doeuvres at Adair County Airport, 735 Country Club Road, Columbia, KY. Benefits Hillary Hadley Scholarship at Eastern Kentucky University for graduates of Adair County High School. Free admissions, silent auction. Donations Accepted. Business Casual attire. DETAILS
By George Kolbenschlag
Vonnie and I will be at "Fly Me to The Moon" in the hangar at the Adair airport this evening. This will be the fourth year for the show and our third time to see and hear what is one of the best all-community events I've participated in anywhere.
I say participated in because it's not just a sit tight and listen event.
The music lends itself to crowd involvement, and the musicians play to that.
In addition to the theme piece, "Fly Me to the Moon," if you go, you'll hear lots of the good old stuff from jazz greats such as Glenn Miller. "Pennsylvania 6500" and "In The Mood" brought the house down last year.
"Fly" not only supports a worthy cause -the memory of Hillary Hadley - it also gathers some of the best musical talent in Kentucky and beyond in what is a jazz-filled evening of fun and food.
And for the most part those musicians are our local boys, girls, men and women and the jazz groups are headed by two of the best--Austin Bralley at ACHS and Tim Allen at LWC.
You can't go wrong with tremendous talent both behind the instruments and the batons. And that does not even include the guest talent that always is a part of the show.
It costs nothing unless you want to sponsor a table although donations are welcome. For more information, you can contact Mella Dee Allen at 270-634-0209.
Friday evening's show is going to be another example of what our high school and college can bring to us.
Between our bands and our theater programs we are blessed.
"Fly Me to the Moon" and "Oklahoma!" in the same week. Almost too much for the soul to handle.
And there is still room for more folks at both.
