Jecorey Arthur is 1200 and picked the University of Louisville’s Comstock Concert Hall for his CitySong video. Here’s what he says about it:
“I probably spent 10,000 hours in this place…working, rehearsing, performing countless concerts. It’s crazy to come back to this place and feel all of those moments rush back to me. It’s also crazy to think about how much time we spent rehearsing and practicing a craft from such a long time ago. All of these dead German composers—Mozart, Beethoven, Haydn… Today we have new versions of those composers. New methods, new philosophies, new ways to create—not only with music, but just making in general. I would like to consider myself a hybrid, a new form of those composers. Fusion. Collaboration. That’s what I learned while I was here at the music school. Making music with other people, creating something new, or rethinking ways of creating something that already existed. And that’s what I represent as an artist. Fusion.”

Looking for a loving, social companion to keep you company? Meet Candy! Candy is a gorgeous, three-month-old Calico kitten looking for a forever home.

Now that she’s back at the shelter, she’s ready to find a family of her very own. Candy is a playful girl who loves attention, toys and spending time with her many friends here at the shelter. Do you have what it takes to be this girl’s new best friend? Candy is spayed, micro-chipped and up-to-date on all vaccinations.

KHS is currently out of wet cat food. We use wet cat food to help wean our kittens from their mother’s milk onto solid food so we are in need of donations. We’re also struggling to find fosters for the large number of kittens that have been turned in so please check out our Foster Care Program. Thanks.
Dylan LeBlanc almost walked away from the music industry after a disappointing start but lucky for us he stuck with it. His new album called Cautionary Tale is getting great reviews and we got to have him for Waterfront Wednesday this June.
