IN THE BEGINNING: November, 1993
This studio lounge originally located at Robert Rd. & Spouse Dr. in Prescott Valley, AZ was first known as the Cannon Academy of Performing Art. The academy staff of music teachers was developed for private study consisting of Patti Bell/vocals; Clare Willey/piano, (deceased); Mel Zelnick/drum, (deceased); Joel DiBartolo/bass-theory (deceased); Milt Cannon, saxophone. There were also clinics, master classes and (3) day 'Artist in Residence' programs with drummer Butch Miles and with the Ortega Family Ensemble, the New Mexico Mescalero Apache performers that were also featured in our 1994 Prescott College Concert in the 'Sam Hill Warehouse.' All of the Cannon Academy activities were enhanced by weekly Sunday living-room 'matinee' performances introducing various established professional performers to the Prescott Valley, AZ area beginning with Phoenix vocalist, Sherry Roberson.
PRESCOTT-CANNON Respectfully asking that all contributing sponsors of our projects & programs be recognized and honored by your patronage support. They are the 'lifeblood' of the Society! Thank You!
