Dr. J. C. Combs, a Professor Emeritus of Percussion at Wichita State University.   Doctorate from University of Oklahoma.  Taught at University of Oklahoma, University of Missouri – KC and Wichita State University (WSU).    He performed as
timpanist and principal percussionist with the Wichita Symphony, the American
Sinfonietta and the Oklahoma City Symphony.  After retiring from WSU in 2006, Combs embarked on his second career as a lecturer, sharing information on subjects that both fascinate him and call upon his continual quest for learning.  Numerous
audiences have been enlightened by his knowledge and enjoyed his humor and ability to bring to life such topics as the Music of the Civil War, the Assassination of
Abraham Lincoln, Popular Music of the 19th Century, Music of the’50s and the Music of Tin Pan Alley.  The list of awards and guest appearances is extensive.


On Thursday evening Dr. Combs will be talking about a book he and his sister,
Barbara Combs, have written about growing up in the 1940s and early 50s in
Clearmont, Missouri, a small town in northwest Missouri where they spend their young lives, seldom traveling more than 50 miles in any direction.

Many of us will be able to relate to what J.C. has to share and all can be assured of a very interesting and entertaining presentation at the Cooks Night Out by one of the area’s most sought out speakers.
