      Maestro - A Musical Celebration in honor of Lile O. Cruse

      "Maestro - A Musical Celebration in honor of Lile O. Cruse" will take place on October 28, at the Rio Theatre, at 6 PM. Lile was an outstanding visionary, not only as a music director and founder of Cabrillo Stage in 1981, but also as the founder of the jazz program at Cabrillo College. Lile Cruse was a legend – to his students, his colleagues, and all who worked with him. His influence over the decades has been substantial – changing the lives of all who worked with him, especially performers and musicians.
      The celebration, produced in association with Michele Rivard, will be hosted by Broadway veteran Janie Scott, and feature performers both local and from around the country, including Natalie Ballenger (star of the national touring company of West Side Story), Chelsea Morgan Stock (star of the Broadway musical The Little Mermaid), Aimee Puentes (of the SF Opera), well known jazz skat singer Janie Finwall Roberts, and such favorite locals as Cabrillo’s Kathryn Adkins, Andrew Ceglio, Tony Panighetti, and many more. Musicians Michael McGushin and Daniel Goldsmith and his trio will also perform.
      Seating will be first-come, first-serve at this free event.
