Concert to benefit Ti quiz bowl team

The concert will be held on March 12 in the high school cafeteria. Nelson Shapiro, music director at Ticonderoga High School, has made arrangements to host Peter Mulvey as part of the State Teacher of the Year honor he earned several years ago; but all profits from the concert will support the Quiz Bowl Teams trip. Tickets prices are $8 advance sale, $10 at the door, and $25 for families. Tickets can be purchased at the high school office (585-6661 ext. 119) or any of the seven quiz bowl members: Amanda Powers, Ashley Polihronakis, Jamian Shapiro, Dave Mallon, Alex Walters, Miranda Ross or John Breitenbach. Tickets can also be purchased at Carney and Breitenbach Law Offices or Rathbun Jewelers in Ticonderoga. Mulvey began as a self-described city kid from Milwaukee, Wis. He played, wrote and sang in bands while studying theatre at Marquette University. After graduating, he traveled to Ireland, where he learned the trade of busker on the streets of Dublin. Returning to the U.S. a few years later, he settled in Boston, building an audience through street and subway performing, while also immersing himself in the thriving musical community. Since his 2000 release The Trouble with Poets, Mulvey has found a home with the independent label Signature Sounds Recordings. His most recent albums for the Massachusetts label were the 2004 release Kitchen Radio, the 2003 collaborative Redbird album (with label-mates Kris Delmhorst and Jeffrey Foucault), and his 2001 CD, Ten Thousand Mornings, an album of cover songs recorded entirely in the subways of Boston. Always looking for ways to further immerse himself in language, art, and music, Mulvey has also scored music for theater and modern dance, and has had numerous songs featured in film and television including various WB programs and PBS documentaries. In addition to the critical acclaim that his recorded works have brought him, though, Mulvey is also highly regarded as a serious disciple of the road. Touring rigorously, year-in and year-out, has made him who and what he is.
