On Jan. 18, "Why We Can't Wait!" – a countywide virtual event – features local choirs, a school jazz band and a school orchestra, as well as Memphis musician and artist Jacki Reddick, Denver poet and storyteller Kerrie Joy, a tribute to sculptor and author Edward Joseph Dwight, Jr., a preview of the Wither’s Photography Collection from the Wither's Museum, and much more.
