02 AprWell, I have learned…
…that there is more to Vegas than gambling. For example, there
are huge martini glasses:
And there is also great music.
Pianist and brilliant entrepreneur Raja Rahman of Jarrett & Raja
fame has just started a fabulous chamber music series here called
Las Vegas Chamber Concerts. Raja had the idea of pairing up ETHEL
with Vegas superstar jazz singer Clint Holmes for the Las Vegas
TruckStop™. It has been wonderful working with Clint. He’s a great
performer and a kind and generous person.
We have also had the honor of working with the very talented students
of the Las Vegas Academy. This place is remarkable – imagine an entire
school filled with highly gifted and self motivated students taught by dynamic
and creative teachers. Without question The Las Vegas Academy has
one of the best performing arts programs I have ever seen in a school
(and I have seen many schools around the United States). It’s a dream
school for musicians.
So I have learned a lot here in Vegas. And I didn’t lose any money. One
more show tonight, then we catch the night flight home.
