Enjoy Great Free Music and Support ESA Literacy Project

Redlands is proud to announce that two exceptional musicians will be performing a live concert on Monday, April 27 at 7 p.m. in the Redlands Cultural Center Auditorium. Edgar Cruz and Michael Kelsey are back by popular demand and will be performing an eclectic mix of Contemporary, Classical, Latin and even Progressive/Aggressive acoustic guitar.

According to President Jack Bryant, “Edgar is a true Oklahoma treasure," stated President Jack Bryant. "We are excited to offer this wonderful entertainment opportunity for our community."

With more than 16,000,000 views on YouTube, 18 produced CDs and concerts throughout the United States, Europe and South America, Edgar Cruz is an international musician with a passion for supporting Oklahoma higher education, specifically community colleges. In 2012, he was inducted into the Oklahoma Association of Community College’s Hall of Fame. Michael Kelsey has toured nationally as the opening act for Blind Melon, Dishwalla, and the Cowboy Junkies. Kelsey’s show was even described as 'Cirque Du Soleil' on acoustic guitar by legendary folk artist David Wilcox.

The performance is free to all attendees. The newly chartered Epsilon Rho service organization, the first hybrid chapter of the International Epsilon Sigma Alpha, will be collecting donations for a book drive to support community-wide literacy initiatives. All book donations will be appreciated; however, the group is primarily collecting books for elementary grade reading levels. If you are unable to attend the concert, please consider delivering book donations to Redlands Community College, Ray Porter Building N-101.

ESA-ER President Cherry Rain said, “"This will be a great concert and Epsilon Sigma Alpha is always happy to help in any way we can."
