While the foundation has other plans in the works, today, August 20, 2008 will be honoring his memory and his legacy on what would have been Isaac’s 66th birthday with a special celebration in the Stax Music Academy and The Soulsville Charter School.
The event will include:

Introduction of the Soulsville Symphony Orchestra & brief remarks: Soulsville Charter School orchestra instructor Bobby Hawkins;
Soulsville Symphony Orchestra: Performance of Isaac Hayes’ “Theme From Shaft” and other musical selections;
Brief Remarks: Soulsville Charter School students;
Remarks: Soulsville Foundation CEO Marc E. Willis;

Guests at the Stax Museum will be invited to attend. The event should last approximately 30 minutes. Special photographs of Isaac Hayes will be on display.
We miss you, Isaac.
