Tribute to Otis Redding

O.K., it's true that Macon isn't Decatur, but if there was a ever a reason to leave this lovely city for a day, it's got to be an Otis Redding Tribute.

On September 14, 2007, the Georgia Music Hall of Fame in Macon unveils Otis Redding: I've Got Dreams to Remember, the first major exhibition to celebrate the life and artistry of one of the greatest popular singers and performers of the 20th century. Also on September 14, a musical tribute concert, An Evening of Respect...The Legacy Continues, will feature Dexter and Otis Redding III, the Macon Symphony Orchestra, The Bar-Kays, Taj Mahal and other special guest performing Redding's songs at the stately Grand Opera House in downtown Macon.

Thanks for showcasing this exhibit which, in fact, has many Atlanta (if nor Decatur) connections--not the least of which is the fact that it was curated and produced by Ellen Fleurov, an Atlanta resident and president of Crossroads Traveling Exhibitions. "Otis Redding: I've Got Dreams To Remember was also honored as the "Best Excibition of 2007" (for projects with a budget over $100,000) by the Georgia Association of Museums and Galleries.
