ELGIN, IL. – The performance by Mose Allison originally set for Saturday, November 3 at the Elgin Community College Arts Center has been cancelled. The musician has cut back his performance schedule due to the advice of his physicians. A spokesperson for the Allison family states that he was looking forward to his Elgin performance and sincerely regrets the cancellation but at this time his physicians have suggested that he limit his performance schedule.
 
“Mose Allison is more than a mere national treasure,” says Steve Duchrow, ECC Arts Center Director of Performing Arts, “He has sent the breath of his art and music into the largest corners of the globe, and into the tiniest and most silent places of the human heart. I, and the staff at the Elgin Community College Arts Center, have relished our contact with Mose Allison, his wife Audre, and his family while scheduling this engagement during the last six months. We, and his many devoted fans, are disappointed at the cancellation but understand and fully support the need to protect his strength and well-being at this time.”
