The great folks at E.J. Thomas Hall at the University of Akron have a tradition that we love: Asking some artists to sign their names on the backstage wall.

Last week it was The Rodney Marsalis Philadelphia Big Brass (RMPBB), who gave a fabulous holiday concert for a full house and then signed the wall right next to Trombone Shorty.

Full-circle: RMPBB started 35 years ago in the French Quarters in New Orleans and shared a corner with a fantastic trumpet player named James and his younger brother Trombone Shorty. RMPBB played, and they rested. They played, and RMPBB rested — a beautiful cooperative effort that kept the crowds engaged for hours.

We've been on the road! We love taking our Akron Concert Series performers beyond the concert stage and into the community.

Today, several members of The Rodney Marsalis Philadelphia Big Brass visited Miller South School for the Visual and Performing Arts and Jackson Local Schools - Massillon, OH to perform and share professional insights and inspirations with students.

Many of those students and their teachers are coming to E.J. Thomas Hall at the University of Akron to hear the full ensemble. (We provide free tickets for all students and bus funding for schools!)

Will you be there? Tickets at tuesdaymusical.org and at the door.

Chocolate was involved with today's Decompression Chamber program!

But instead of calories, classical guitarist James Marron shared his soothing sounds with the busy holiday bakers & buyers of Akron's The West Side Bakery.

Research shows that listening to classical music can decrease stress, boost brain function, improve productivity, increase physical performance, and sharpen memory.

Our thanks to Knight Foundation, GAR Foundation, and many others for making free Decompression Chamber concerts like this possible at high-pressure sites throughout our community.

Strings & smiles! Young students really got into the classical music of OPUS 216, led by violinist Ariel Karaś, when our Decompression Chamber program returned this week to the Boys & Girls Clubs of Northeast Ohio/Akron's site at the Joy Park Community Center.

Through generous support from Knight Foundation, GAR Foundation, and many other generous funders and individuals, Tuesday Musical's Decompression Chamber shares free chamber music concerts at venues throughout Akron and Summit County.

Our concert last Thursday by the Scottish Chamber Orchestra and violinist Nicola Benedetti was a special experience — especially for one of the newest members of Tuesday Musical's Brahms Allegro Junior Music Club.

Lydia Andres from Youngstown came to the concert with her parents and brought flowers to give to Nicola, her absolute favorite violinist.

What started as a sweet meet-and-greet during intermission became an incredible opportunity as Nicola insisted that Lydia come to her dressing room for an impromptu lesson on Nicola's own 1717 Gariel Stradivarius!

Tuesday Musical has incredible programs like Brahms Allegro that create learning moments and experiences that will inspire young musicians forever. Interested in joining? Let us know!
