On April 18 my son Mick’s house was broken in to in the middle of the afternoon. The thief passed over computers, TV’s and video game systems and took only Mick’s beloved alto saxophone.
It was a 1967 Selmer Mark VI, a valuable instrument in its own right, but infinitely more precious because of its sentimental value. It was gifted to Mick from the estate of a musician who wanted his horn to go to a promising young student, one who would appreciate it, play it often, and take good care of it. And so, he did, for seven years, playing a gig with it the night before it was taken. Although Mick works a full-time job, as well as playing several times a month with his band, Street Blues Family, he has two young daughters to support, and does not have the financial means to replace this instrument. If you support the arts in Tucson, if you are a fan of Street Blues Family, or if you care about young musicians, please give what you can. And if you are not able to give, please share this with anyone you know who cares about music and the arts. We truly appreciate your support. Thank you.
