Physicians Talent Show Set For Aug. 18 At Himmel

The Kretzer Piano Music Foundation will present the fourth annual Physicians Talent Showcase, featuring the musical talents of 20 local medical professionals, on Aug. 18.

The event will be staged at the Harriet Himmel Theater at CityPlace in West Palm Beach at 7:30 p.m.

“The talented lineup for this year’s Physicians Talent Showcase will include another all-doctor band, ballroom dancers, vocalists, instrumentalists and even a magician,” promised Kathi Kretzer, founder of the Kretzer foundation. “We were thrilled when our first three concerts raised more than $150,000 to benefit underprivileged children in our area.”

Tickets are $75 each (tax-deductible) and can be purchased by calling Complete Ticket Solutions at (866) 449-2489. Profits raised from this year’s Physicians Talent Showcase will enable the foundation to expand its music education programs for children in need. “We are still looking for sponsors for the next Physicians Talent Showcase, and interested individuals and companies are encouraged to call me directly at (561) 748-0036,” Kretzer added.

Dr. Maureen Whelihan and Dr. Gordon Johnson served as the masters of ceremony at the 2014 Physicians Talent Showcase.
