The Eureka Orchestra is putting on its annual Chamber Music Benefit Concert at the Eureka Woman's Club today at 3 p.m. Your $30 buys a spot to watch the masterful playing of violinist Terrie Baune, cellist and Eureka Symphony conductor and music director/local treasure Carol Jacobson, pianist John Chernoff and guest saxophonist Scott Seaton as they work through what will likely be an exciting matinee.
The Jam is holding a daytime GetDown for local musician and electric cellist Mike Lee, who died tragically last month while surfing in Morocco. The informal jam kicks off at 1 p.m. and it is suggested that people bring a dish to share or money to donate to one of Lee's favorite charities. Expect a Journal blog post soon about Mike as told by his friends and contemporary musicians. Rest in peace, Mike Lee.
