SEASIDE — Join Seaside High students and community members Saturday, May 19, for a night of music, food, art and magic as they remember former Seaside High School student Elliott Hearing.

Hearing was a thespian and passionate lover of the arts, especially music and particularly the music of the late ‘60s, including the Beatles. Sadly, the young artist was lost to the sea the summer of his junior year (July 2007) when a sneaker wave overtook him near Haystack Rock. Sydney Morrisson, who held the first benefit concert in his memory, continued on with their plans to produce a concert for their Pacifica Project to raise funds for the homeless, but she decided to raise funds for both the Coaster Theatre, one of his favorite places, and the Cannon Beach Fire and Rescue, who had searched long and hard for the missing student.

Hearing’s love of the arts has been the inspiration for three previous concerts and this event, a Pacifica Project by Max Strozzi, is no exception. Students will take to the stage and perform in honor of his memory. There will also be refreshments available for purchase.

The concert will be staged at the high school cafetorium, 1901 Holladay Drive. Admission is $5 and all proceeds will be donated to the Seaside High School music and theater programs. Doors open at 6:30 p.m. and the show starts at 7 p.m.

For more information, contact Strozzi at the high school at (503) 738-5586.
