Drake hosts concert promoted by SJMC students

Chicago native Tom Splitt released numerous albums and toured extensively before retiring from public performance to focus on other musical pursuits, including composition of choral pieces and an opera. He recently decided it was time to reemerge through a series of concerts, the first of which will be held at 7:30 p.m., Thursday, Sept. 22, in the Harmon Fine Arts Center’s Performing Arts Hall. The performance will be open to the public, and admission will be free, as a gesture of appreciation for the support he received from two Drake students.

Cheyenne Ramsey, a senior advertising major, and Aaron Bell, a senior public relations major, worked this summer on a marketing and promotion plan for Splitt’s reemergence. Drake Communications posted a story about the project.
