Never mind it's Saturday, school is in session -- old school, that is -- as some of the greatest acts in funk, R&B and soul reunite for Old School Saturday Night at the Greek Theatre. Between them, these six acts have amassed a stack of gold and platinum records, several No. 1 hits and a Grammy. Let the memories come flooding back as you hear Morris Day and the Time ("Jungle Love," "The Bird"), Lakeside ("Fantastic Voyage"), Ready for the World ("Oh Sheila"), Alexander O'Neal ("Saturday Love"), Taste of Honey ("Boogie Oogie Oogie") and Yarbrough and Peoples ("Don't Stop The Music") perform live during this concert under the stars.

Awarded the third prize, Sa Chen became the first recipient of the Crystal Award at the Twelfth Van Cliburn International Piano Competition. Born into a musical family in Chongqing, China, Sa Chen is considered, along with Lang Lang and Yundi Li, as one of today’s most important Chinese pianists. Her debut disc Chopin Impressions was released in 2003 on the JVC label. Her prize-winning performances of Ravel’s Gaspard de la Nuit and Liszt’s Spanish Rhapsody at the 2005 Cliburn Competition are among the works included on a Harmonia Mundi disk. Ms. Chen will appear in the November 2008 issue of Gramophone.
