  • (1888PressRelease) December 14, 2018 - Joe Yazbeck is a veteran recording and performing artist who has recently released two popular albums Streets of Your Heart and the holiday favorite Jazz’d About Christmas. Joe has performed nationally with his band Heartdance and continues to perform at special events and venues. Joe has also performed as part of national touring companies of Broadway shows.

    Greg Smith has been playing guitar since 1966 and has played in many styles ranging from classical, through rock, blues, country, straight ahead jazz, smooth jazz and free jazz. He has played all over the United States with well known artists such as Chic Corea, Edgar Winter, Larry Coryell, Jeff Berlin, Glen Zotolla, Randy Sabien and Brian Torff. Currently he performs around the greater Tampa Bay area as a solo acoustic guitarist, with the New York Guitar Carts, numerous duos, the Heartdance band and more.

    The Church of Scientology Choir first originated in the United Kingdom in the 1960’s where early Scientologists put the concepts of their religious beliefs to song and to celebrate their spiritual advancements in their pursuit of spiritual freedom. The Church of Scientology Choir of Clearwater began in the 1993, to continue that tradition. As a volunteer group they love music and singing and their goal is to perform as often as possible to reach out into the community to lift spirits everywhere.

    Yazbeck and Smith will provide a “smooth and mellow” flair, while the Choir will have songs that will encourage kid participation with hand-held bells and percussion sticks. The event includes holiday-inspired refreshments and a chance to meet with the artists afterwards and take photos.

    “The songs will be Holiday favorites of all genres and all styles,” said event organizer and Center Manager, Amber Skjelset. “They’ll be the kind that you can’t help but sing along with and reminisce. As 2019 is just around the corner, we wanted to give the community a chance to enjoy themselves and reflect before the start of a whole new year,” said Skjelset.

    The Information Center, located in the Century-old Historic Clearwater Building, houses displays which provide basic information through panels and brief audiovisual presentations covering Scientology’s beliefs, humanitarian community activities and an overview of the life of Scientology’s Founder,
    Mr. L. Ron Hubbard for those who are curious.
