Will McMillan, Assistant Director at the Cambridge Center for Adult Education, tells us a little about his upcoming performance:
This week I’ve been happy to see the numbers rise for my benefit performance with Doug Hammer on Saturday, March 14th at our Blacksmith House performance space (and we even received a $50 donation from a local arts critic who was unable to attend but wanted to show her/his support!)The fact that the Cambridge Center for Adult Education has two grand pianos – one in each building – is partly how I ended up working here 13 years ago.Several performers – including Brad Conner, Ben Sears, Leslie Holmes, Mike Palter and Lynne Jackson – had done successful performances featuring voice and piano. They encouraged CCAE’s then PR director, Tracy Gibbs, to start the Cabaret Connection performance series, and I volunteered to help out as needed.My offer to help became a part-time job, which several years later morphed into a full-time position.Hundreds of people have performed at CCAE over the past few decades using the trusty old Steinert grand piano in our intimate Spiegel auditorium at 56 Brattle Street.I am delighted to be helping to raise money to pay for its recent renovation, and grateful to CCAE for being my musical home for the past 13 years.May live music continue to shimmer at CCAE for many decades to come!
