The Sebastopol Area Senior Center is honoring Jim “Mr. Music” Corbett as our 2015 Aged to Perfection Distinguished Citizen.
Being held on Saturday, May 9th at the Sebastopol Center for the Arts, the award is presented to someone who has a history of giving back to and working with their community. Not just the Senior Center, but the community as a whole. Jim Corbett fits that description to a “T”.
Jim was born and raised in Omaha, Nebraska. His musical inspiration came early at age 5 when he started piano lessons. It was at Ohio State University where he learned to play guitar. Jim came to San Francisco in 1972, and played in a SF based band for several years.
Arriving in Sebastopol in 1975, Jim and Jan met shortly after. They married in 1978, and one year to the date Sophia was born.
When you play the Word Association game with Jim as the subject, everyone seems to have their favorite. Love Choir; Luv Rustlers; The Country All-Stars; Peacetown USA; Peacetown Concert Series; Purple People Eater; Coach; Peace Activist; Community Activist; Tireless Volunteer…the list is endless.
When asked about which of his accomplishments he is most proud of, he smiles and says “All of them, but wife Jan and daughters Sophia, Elizabeth, and Karina are at the top”.
Jim “Mr. Music” Corbett has probably touched the lives of more people than anyone we will ever meet. Students, musicians, friends, neighbors, and yes, Senior Citizens. Whenever Jim sets up shop at the Senior Center the room seems to fill up and everyone goes home a little bit happier.
The Sebastopol Area Senior Center is proud to be able to honor Jim Corbett as our 2015 Aged to Perfection Distinguished Citizen. For more information about Aged to Perfection call 829-2440 or email firstname.lastname@example.org
