All That Jazz!

by Anthony Ward

Pellissippi’s 2014 Jazz and Bluegrass Concert will be held at the Clayton Performing Arts Center on Thursday, March 27 at 7 p.m.

The Hardin Valley Thunder will team up with the Pellissippi State Jazz Band for this event, which will feature such classic bluegrass arrangements as “Foggy Mountain Breakdown” and “Sitting on Top of the World” in addition to a bluegrass rendition of Ozzy Osbourne’s rock classic “Crazy Train.”

The keyword for this concert is “variety,” said Larry Vincent, assistant professor of Liberal Arts and the ensemble’s leader. “The concert will also feature at least 10 to 15 previous Hardin Valley Thunder members.”

Both groups require an audition in order to be considered and receive additional service scholarships for their hard work in representing the college. Vincent added, “Each ensemble would love to see as many students as possible in the audience.” Although there is no admission charge, all donations go directly to a fund that helps provide scholarships for the students that populate these ensembles.

Baby, Come Back

by Cole Petway

Pellissippi State security officer Fred Breiner played big role in returning a baby to a worried mother.

As word got out that a stolen Dodge Neon was parked at the McDonald’s on Hardin Valley Road with a baby inside, Breiner sent an email and text notification to the campus community, advising everybody of the kidnapping incident and to be aware that the suspect may still be in the area. He directed security personnel to observe and patrol the south end of campus in search of the kidnapping suspect.

The baby was safely returned to his mother; the suspect is still at large.
