An Evening Under the Dome With Gary Jules
Dec 10, 2010 – 6:00 pm - 9:30 pm
Singer/songwriter Gary Jules will headline SDMoM’s inaugural “Evening Under the Dome…” on Friday, December 10 from 6:00-9:30 p.m. The exclusive show is part of the Museum’s benefit concert series, ‘An Evening Under the Dome…,’ and will be held at the SDMoM Grand Rotunda.
SDMoM’s “An Evening Under the Dome…” benefit concert series features socially conscious artists whose music and message align with SDMoM’s mission that, through anthropology, we can change the world for the better. SDMoM’s new Executive Director Dr. Micah D. Parzen is confident that “this benefit concert is another step in the direction of re-branding the Museum as a place to gather to exchange new ideas, enjoy unique cultural events, provoke conversation and become a destination for tourists and local visitors alike.”
Gary Jules, best known for his haunting cover of the Tears for Fears’ hit “Mad World,” grew up in La Jolla, Calif., visiting SDMoM with his childhood friend and now SDMoM’s Executive Director, Dr. Parzen. Jules, a UCLA Anthropology graduate and world traveler, shares a mutual interest in SDMoM’s mission, found not only in his generosity of spirit, but also in a common thread throughout his many thought-provoking songs.
“An Evening Under the Dome with Gary Jules” is open to the public and will be held at the historic Grand Rotunda in Balboa Park. Tickets are $75 per person or $125 per couple. Light food and no-host bar will be provided. The event will also feature a silent auction.
