National Geographic Speakers Series
If you have yet to attend one of the National Geographic Speaker Series events in the Long Center, you should put this one, or more, on your Google Calendar for 2023. Coming up this month, the Center presents Fillipe DeAndrade. Here’s an excerpt from their website that tells his story best:
Fillipe believes animals saved his life – and he wants to return the favor. He was raised in poverty, surrounded by addiction and abuse, where he felt voiceless. Fillipe related to animals because they were voiceless too, and he fell in love with photography as a way to tell their stories. Today, he is a star of the National Geographic’s digital series “Untamed Works.” Through this passionate presentation, Fillipe will bring you face to face with lions, sharks, and one of the rarest animals in the world.

Boz Scaggs’ Summer ’23 Tour
Born William Royce Scaggs in Canton, Ohio on June 8, 1944, he grew up in Oklahoma and Texas, where he spent his teenage years immersed in the blues, R&B and early rock 'n' roll. While attending school in Dallas, he played in local combos. After several years as a journeyman musician around Madison, WI and Austin, TX, Scaggs spent time traveling in Europe, the Middle East and Asia, eventually settling in Stockholm where he recorded the album Boz – and the rest is history.
