A farewell celebration concert was held on Sunday, May 7 at 3:00PM by Lucie and Jim Carlson, well known as Cricket & Snail. They and their family are moving to the Czech Republic at the end of May. The concert was a true walk down memory lane as they delighted the crowd in St. Luke's Chapel with so many of their well loved renditions as well as some new offerings showcasing new instruments.
Jim has been a Visiting Assistant Professor of Music at the University for 14 years and has influenced countless students in their musical studies. As a token of remembrance, a booklet was presented to Jim that contained testamonials from his former and current students. Stephen Miller, Chair of the Music Department, shared some of these tributes with the audience before presenting the booklet to Jim.
The Carlson family will be greatly missed by the entire Sewanee community.
