East Haven goes into musical meltdown

December 17, 2013 by  

A benefit concert to save the arts and music will be held this weekend at Holy Cross High School, 587 Oronoke Road in Waterbury.

The event begins at noon and will feature a book and DVD drive and free refreshments. Kids age 12 and younger are free, while tickets for other groups are $20. The book and DVD drive will take place before and after the concert, and the event is designed to promote awareness of the importance of arts and music in learning.

It all takes place this Sunday, December 22.

Children will also have fun at the Tinkering camp on Monday, December 23 at 2:30 p.m. at the Westport Public Library, 20 Jessup Road, Westport, where they will learn how to engineer buildings to be earthquake resistant.

This event is designed for children in grades 3 through 5. Camp hours are 2:30 pm to 4:00 pm Monday through Friday. Children will learn about engineering, building skeletons, bracing, and earthquake resistance in a fun environment.

After that, adults will enjoy the musical performance of Paul Cebar Tomorrow Sound on Sunday, December 29 at the Café Nine, 250 State Street in New Haven, only 15 minutes from East Haven.

Cebar was influenced by the bands from western Louisiana, New Orleans, Caribbean and African combos, and soul, funk, and blues. His second home is New Orleans but has also spent time in Florida and Cuba. Poster printing and flyer printing are just two methods local business use to promote events like these to local residents.
