The Philharmonic invites you to join in honoring Tom Pickett and his half century-plus of teaching thousands of residents to appreciate music. More than a dozen music celebrities who got their start under the tutelage of Tom Pickett will be on hand to join in the Jam Session.
Tom's success has to be attributed in part to his generosity of spirit. His love of sharing music is unparalleled and his humor is in a class of its own.
Tim Grimm, about Tom Pickett, Jammin' with the Stars
I began buying LPs and 45s from Tom in 1964. Bought an Alvarez Dove from him in 1971. He is a man of quiet wisdom and gentle humor, and a generous spirit.
Barney Quick, about Tom Pickett, Jammin' with the Stars
I am so excited to see and hear all of the "home grown" talent who will be performing at The Commons on June 28th. Tom Pickett has been a household name for my family since I was a little girl. What a great way to honor a "music man" who has taught and nurtured so many!"
