Former TV arts correspondent Zuckerman to perform in WR

October 2, 2013 

Who says the arts are not alive and thriving in Warner Robins?

Eugenia Zuckerman, former arts correspondent for “CBS Sunday Morning” for more than 24 years, will be in Warner Robins on Oct. 6 to share her musical talent. Thanks to the Warner Robins Community Concert Association, Zuckerman, a flutist, will be performing in the second of its 2013-14 season concerts.

Many will remember Zuckerman from back in the days of Charles Kuralt on CBS and from her occasional interludes and commentary during broadcasts. She has grown over the years to be in great demand from New York to China as an orchestral soloist, chamber musician and recitalist.

“Her musicianship is consummate, her taste immaculate and her stage presence a pure pleasure” says the New York Times of her performances. A graduate of the Juilliard School where she studied with the renowned flutist Julius Baker, Zuckerman has more than two dozen discs released to her credit.

“We are really excited to be able to bring such an artist to Warner Robins and hope to see a big crowd there” said Norma Hunt from the Warner Robins Community Concert Association.

Tickets for the concert are $15 for adults and can be purchased at the door. Students of all ages will be admitted free of charge. The performance will be at 3 p.m. in the sanctuary of First United Methodist Church, 205 N. Davis Drive, Warner Robins.

The Wings and Wheels Poker Fun Run will be held Oct. 11 in conjunction with the annual Wings and Wheels Car, Truck and Motorcycle Show. This is a fun event that takes participants to draw cards from different merchants throughout town, eventually ending up at Steak ‘n Shake on Margie Drive. There will be cash prizes for the best three poker hands plus other door prizes.

More than one hand can be played and more than one player can participate per vehicle. The entry fee per player and to enjoy the live DJ from 7-10 p.m. at Steak ‘n Shake is $10.

Come back to the Museum of Aviation the next day, Oct. 12, to enjoy the car show from 9 a.m.-5 p.m., presented by Jeff Smith Automotive. The show spotlights 250 cars that compete for trophies and is free to spectators.
