Millburn-Short Hills Residents "Escape in the Park"

September 9, 2013 at 6:38 AM

MILLBURN, NJ - Going straight into a long weekend right after summer vacation, Millburn-Short Hills residents were given yet another treat on Saturday as Taylor Park played host to the “Back to School/Escape in the Park Concert.” The show was organized by Alec Gevarter, a senior at Millburn High School, and sponsored by the “So.i.Heard House of Music,” a local business that opened in early July. So.i.Heard offers music lessons and recording studios and sessions to the community, and is especially geared towards High School students, who unsurprisingly constituted a majority of both the performers and audience members at Saturday’s concert.

Acts featured included local singer/songwriters Jake Gluckman, Nicole Levine, Leonard Santos, Christopher McHugh, and Anya Parker-Lentz, all students or graduates of Millburn High School. These artists performed both their own original songs and covers Santos, for instance, sang his original song “Train Tracks,” and more, but also performed a vibrant, ukulele-led rendition of Imagine Dragons’ Top 10 hit “Radioactive.” Other performers included groups, such as Alec Gevarter’s own band, “Between Words,” and Soulfege, Millburn High School’s own a cappella group. Jake Gluckman, who performed not only as an artist but also as a member and soloist of Soulfege, had this to say about the concert:

“I was really happy with how it turned out. It was the first time I performed any of my original songs publicly, and it was great receiving feedback from my friends and family. I find performing so fun and exciting, especially when I get to share my style of music my closest friends and with the community.” He goes on to note that “the concert was very well organized, thanks to Alec Gevarter, who also invited me to

Gevarter himself was also extremely satisfied with the concert, and says that even though it was “definitely hard work,” he had a lot of help and thinks that overall, “everything went extremely well,” thanks in no small part to “So.i.Heard,” who both Gluckman and Gevarter called “very generous.”

Recordings from the concert can be heard on the So.i.Heard House of Music website (www.soiheardmusic.com).

My Epic Beauty Fails

One day as I was looking around a high-end cosmetics store for a new lipstick, a “beauty expert” approached me and said that I was so stunning I should forget the lipstick, and get a lip plumper instead. At first I wondered why I needed a lip plumper if I was already so stunning. But then I thought, “Now here is someone wearing a badge that says, ‘beauty expert,’ so ...
