“Hi Everyone. My piano teacher Jacqueline Hairston is returning to Charlotte for a concert.

“She was a favorite teacher of mine during my tenure as a music education student at Johnson C. Smith University.

“During my years at JCSU, she often invited me to play sax and other instruments for preschoolers and the elderly. I can remember accompanying her with saxophone for a black tie fundraiser for the Charlotte Oratorio Fashion Show.”

The Observer ran a story about Hairston’s visit on Thursday, March 31 on the JCSU campus. The concert is free.
