Let the Church say "amen," "andante," "fortissimo," "adagio," and "fermata" all to the measure of the feverish pitch of lively music from Gospel to Classical to Jazz, Latin to Pop to Reggae to World Fusion and beyond as Grammy-nominated pianist Ricardo Scales launches the "Get to Know Me" monthly concert series in honor of his mother, Patience Scales, founder of "The Parade of Youth."   Jones Memorial United Methodist Church, 1975 Post Street is the location of the new concert series.

World-renowned piano virtuoso Ricardo Scales, who has produced Grammy nominated music with his more than thirty CD's since the 1990's, will headline the Sunday, 5:30 p.m. December 15th concert with the legendary Pete Escovedo Family.

"As I'm the new Music Director at Jones Memorial, most people would expect that the "Get to Know Me" series would be totally liturgical," said Ricardo Scales."  "But I'd like to remind everyone that Beethoven, Bach, Handel, Mozart, Aretha Franklin and other musical geniuses began their music careers in service to God.  We want to give 'up and coming' artists an opportunity to pair up with the genius of Pete Escovedo and other well-established artists to help elevate their craft and gain exposure to the public without a great deal of expense," added Scales.  The concerts will be a tribute to my mother who held many concerts over the years at The War Memorial Opera House and other venues in the Bay Area to assist young musicians. The "Get to Know Me Concert Series" is a continuation of her legacy."

"I am honored to be working with Ricardo on this groundbreaking work that will give young artists and seasoned Bay Area talents a place to either hone their skills or have an opportunity to express their talent," said Pete Escovedo.  "The Bay Area has a lot of artists that are not household names and this new venture will help make them and other guest artists from around the country better known."

The Jones Memorial United Methodist Church Music Director recounted how expensive it was for him to get his recording career started.   "I want the emerging generation of musicians to concentrate on their craft and not the costs of producing music," said Scales
