Jazz Revival

Jazz is re-emerging on the American scene, and students and staff have an excellent opportunity to be a part of the revival Thursday night, February 21st. Brought to you by D.A.C. and S.A.C., (at the instigation of CMC's resident jazz expert Billy Gamble), saxophone master Richard Elliott will rev-up an Athenaeum audience of about 200 during an hour and a half after dinner concert beginning at 8 p.m.

Elliott has performed with an impressive array of hot groups including the Yellow Jackets, Rickie Lee Jones, Michael MacDonald, and, most recently, the three-album group Kittyhawk. On his own now, Elliott has just produced "Initial Approach" and will be touring with Melissa Manchester next month. Tickets are $5.00, and may be purchased during dinner at all dining halls.


Investment bankers-to-be, don't forget the informal stock-talk session Friday, February 22 at noon. Lunch will be served, there will be a brief informational stock analysis by one of the economics professors, and the weekly stock-closing will be screened. There are still some lunch spaces left if you call in and sign-up by Wednesday, February 20. This is your chance to learn how the people who teach you invest their money!

Evening in Vienna
MICHAEL DEANE LAMKIN, conductor, Claremont Chamber Orchestra
FRIDAY, FEBRUARY 15, 1985 7:00 p.m.

If Strauss only had the Athenaeum in which to perform ... there is no telling how far he would have gone! Maybe he would have sounded like the Claremont Colleges Symphonic Orchestra. At any rate, don't forget that Dr. Michael Lamkin will conduct an evening of beautiful music during Friday's "Evening in Vienna." The evening begins promptly at 7:00 with a Harald specialty dinner!

Sunday Brunch

Sign-ups are now being accepted for the March 3 Sunday Brunch. Since I know you never read past that first line and are even now rifling through the Athe-news in search of the sign-up slip, I won't belabor the point. It's wonderful, it's always packed, and it begins at 11:00. Enjoy!
