The Chicks get some class

The Chicks are just thrilled that the ALIAS Chamber Ensemble is performing a benefit for us Saturday night!

In a town full of musicians, this is a pretty special group made up of well-known professional  players from the Nashville Symphony. They decided to form ALIAS in 2002 to color outside the the lines, as it were, once in awhile. And then they decided to donate all the proceeds from the concerts to charity, which puts them at the top of our list. We are thrilled just to rub shoulders with them.

So, of course, we are sweating the food. The charity of choice agrees to provide food for a reception after the performance. As the food chairman for the St. Paul’s English Tea each year, you would think I have this part down. But some egg salad finger sandwiches aren’t going to cut it here. And there’s no kitchen at the Blair School of Music, which I think was an unpardonable mistake on the part of the architects. So my idea for hot canapes went out the window.

I will come up with something elegant yet understated. Sophisticated yet simple. What that is, I don’t know but if you will come to the concert you can find out. It starts at 8 p.m. at Turner Hall and you can get  your tickets here or at the door. Best of all, tickets are only $12. Twelve bucks to hear world class musicians! We love this town.


About CRC Nashville

Who are we? We are literally two chicks - Catherine Mayhew and Betsy Everett, and a warehouse - the Community Resource Center (CRC). In short, CRC is a non-profit organization that provides household goods, furniture, and appliances to people in desperate need. Think of us as Robin Hoods – without the stealing. Catherine is a former journalist and Betsy is a marketing chick. We are both devoted to acquiring stuff – good stuff, no junk – because that’s what our most fragile citizens deserve. If you have metal desks, televisions that don’t work or underwear you don’t want anymore, don’t give it to us. We’ll sneer at you. If you are companies that have excess primo stuff like furniture in good condition, school supplies, personal hygiene items or pretty much anything else, we’ll be your new best friends.
