Tuesday Musical Helps Court House Visitors Decompress

Feb 20, 2018

Summit County Probate Court and Tuesday Musical partnered to bring music to the atrium of the Summit County Court House on Wednesday, February 14, 2018.  The Escher String Quartet performed for those working in the courts, attending trials, or filing for their marriage licenses on Valentine’s Day.  The series of concerts for those in high stress work environments is partly funded by the John S. and James L. Knight Foundation through its Knight Arts Challenge. “We hope that bringing art to the community, and to an unusual place like the Court House, allows employees and visitors a mental break,” said Summit County Probate Court Judge Elinore Marsh Stormer.  “Music gives even a casual listener an escape and a chance to recharge.” Many from the court house brought their lunch to the atrium to enjoy the hour long concert. To hear a bit you can go here. The Escher String Quartet also serves as artists of the Chamber Music Society of Lincoln Center.  It has performed at Wigmore Hall in London and the Auditorium du Louvre in Paris, as well as the Kennedy Center in Washington, D.C.

Probate Court congratulates the Volunteer Guardian Program and Director of Volunteers Jennifer Mesko-Kimmich (J.J.) for their recognition by the Directors of Volunteers in Agencies (DOVIA) of Greater Akron on December 11, 2017. The Volunteer Guardian Program formed in 2014, is a joint project of Summit County Probate Court, Summit County Public Health, the ADM Board, and Summit DD Board. This program was formed under the leadership of Judge Elinore Marsh Stormer to address the need for guardians of individuals who have no one to help them when they are unable to make decisions for themselves.  The volunteers are appointed by Probate Court who remains the “superior guardian” of the individual. Ms. Mesko-Kimmich has been with the Volunteer Guardian Program since its inception in 2014.  She has been able to find excellent volunteers and problem-solve issues to help create one of the top Volunteer Guardian Programs in Ohio.
