BILL MAYS, piano
Miner Cook Athenaeum in presenting a special holiday program for students, alumni, faculty, and
staff of Claremont McKenna College.
Ray Drummond '68, is one of the most acclaimed string bass players in the world. A
contributor to more than 100 albums, Ray has recorded three albums of his own compositions. His
musical background includes trumpet, baritone horn, and French horn. He began teaching
himself to play the bass fiddle at 15, and has continued to develop this talent throughout his life.
Ray will be joined at the piano by Bill Mays. Mr. Mays' versatile keyboard work has been heard
on hundreds of T.V. and movie scores including Superman (1978), Rocky (1976), Jaws (1975), Dallas (1978), and Kojak (1973). Bill is
also a sought after accompanist for such singers as Frank Sinatra, Mel Torme, and Al Jarreau.
If you would like to join us for a sampling of the former ASCMC president's extraordinary musical
talent along with the keyboard artistry of Bill Mays, please make your reservation on the attached

favorite dining hall-no dinner will be served at the Athenaeum. We will have an array of jazzy
delicacies. CMC persons and guests only.
