Indianapolis, IN, November 4, 2019 – Eric Smith, Founder and President of Auralex® Acoustics, Inc., the world’s leading brand of acoustical treatments, recently offered support for the John Von Ohlen Scholarship Fund at the University of Cincinnati. Smith contributed a donation at a kick-off fundraiser held recently on the U of C campus in honor of the late drummer John Von Ohlen. The concert and fundraiser featured the U of C Jazz Department Jazz Orchestra performing the music of Woody Herman, with whom Von Ohlen performed with for several years. The concert, directed by Dr. Scott Belck, also featured former Woody Herman trombonist John Fedchock.
Smith met personally with pianist Steve Allee (a frequent collaborator of Von Ohlen’s) and Dr. Belck. Smith notes, “I had immense respect for John Von Ohlen as well as his partner in life and music, Mary Ellen Tanner. I cherish the memory of sitting at the side of the stage and hearing her singing standards years ago, alongside John on drums and Lee Stoller on piano. It was a treat for the ages. I am privileged to be able to contribute to the scholarship in honor of these individuals whose music had such an impact on me. It is extremely important to honor and encourage Von Ohlen’s type of talent, and to keep this style of music alive for future generations of musicians.”
