SEASIDE - Saturday, May 19, join us in a night full of music, food, art and magic as we remember former Seaside High School student, Elliott Hearing.

Elliott was a thespian and passionate lover of the arts. One could say Music was bride and he embraced the relationship, particularly the music of the late sixties and most specifically, the Beatles," said Sadly, Elliott 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 memory of Elliott Hearing, continued on with plans to produce a concert for her Pacifica Project to raise funds for the homeless, but she decided to fundraise for both the Coaster Theatre, where Elliott loved to be, and the Cannon Beach Fire and Rescue, who had searched long and hard for Elliott.

Elliott has never been forgotten and we would like to take this opportunity to celebrate his life and raise funds for the things he loved, such as music and theatre.

This Pacifica Project by Max Strozzi is an opportunity to remember a fellow musician and a beautiful person. His love of the arts has been the inspiration for 3 previous concerts and this event 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. Admission is only $5 and all proceeds will be donated to the Seaside High School music and theatre programs. Doors open at 6:30.  Show starts at 7.

For further information, contact Max at the high school at (503) 738-5586.
