Saturday, December 10, 4 p.m.

 

Performing in a December 10 concert at Davenport’s First Presbyterian Church, the latest guest in Quad City Arts’ Visiting Artist Series is acclaimed pianist/composer Mike Garson, and according to his Web-site bio at MikeGarson.com, he’s a musician “to whom the word ‘no’ is quickly transformed into the word ‘now.’” Which is funny, because that’s exactly what happens whenever I say ‘no’ around here ... although it’s always my editor Jeff who transforms it into ‘now.’
