PostSubject: Akron Symphony To Honor "The King"   Fri Feb 01, 2008 9:10 am

The Akron Symphony is proud to announce that the theme for Fanfare 2008 is The Ultimate Elvis Experience, an event which will culminate in a one night only concert featuring the recently crowned "World Champion Elvis Tribute Artist," Shawn Klush, along with Elvis Presley's longtime vocal backup group, The Imperials, live onstage at the Akron Civic Theatre, Akron, Ohio on Saturday, May 17, 2008.

The all-star concert will follow an Elvis-themed dinner and auction to be held at the Radisson Hotel earlier in the evening. Proceeds from the concert, dinner, and auction will benefit the Akron Symphony Orchestra, Akron Youth Symphony, and Akron Symphony Chorus.

Birthday Celebration Kickoff

To kick things off, the Akron Symphony has teamed up with area businesses and local Elvis impersonator Doug Wilson to celebrate what would be Elvis Presley's 73rd birthday on Tuesday, January 8 with a travelling, day-long Elvis Birthday Celebration. The party will arrive "Elvis style" in a cadillac provided by Dave Towell Cadillac Saab and begin with a stop for breakfast at Caribou Coffee (1 N. Hawkins Avenue, West Akron) from 7:30-8:30 a.m.

Caribou will offer customers an Elvis birthday discount on their gourmet coffee. During the afternoon, Spaghetti Warehouse (510 South Main street, Akron) will host a lunchtime party complete with a $5.99 lasagna meal deal from noon to 1:00 p.m. Finally from 6:00-7:00 p.m., Bricco (1 West Exchange Street, Akron) will offer diners a southern fish special fit for the King himself including a one of a kind banana and peanut butter dessert.

All three location stops will feature free Elvis birthday cake courtesy of Tiffany Bakery & Ice Cream, photo opportunities with local Elvis impersonator Doug Wilson, and a chance to win free tickets to the May 17th concert starring Shawn Klush and The Imperials. -- http://www.akronsymphony.org
