Two Mt. San Jacinto College faculty members will be featured at TEDx Temecula as the local conference sparks community discussion and action on the theme “The Next Stage.”
Vanessa Sheldon, associate faculty in Music, and Guy Reams, associate professor in Computer Information Systems, will be part of the second annual TEDx Temecula conference on Saturday, November 16, 2013, from noon. to 7:00 p.m. at Temecula City Hall Conference Center. Advance tickets are now available at www.tedxtemecula.com
Speakers and performers from a wide range of backgrounds will challenge, engage, and inspire attendees with their ideas for the Temecula Valley and the world. Attendees will have ample time to meet speakers and discuss ideas while sampling delicious local food and wine.
“Our goal for TEDxTemecula is to spotlight new voices and key ideas here in our community,” TEDx President and Licensee Jim McLaughlin said in a TEDx press release. “Our selected group of fascinating thinkers and doers will address diverse topics such as wellness, business, creativity, technology, education and more. TEDxTemecula events enable us to spread new ideas, gain additional perspectives and empower our community.”
Reams will focus on Creativity & Education during his presentation. Sheldon play Rock ‘n’ Roll and Jazz songs on an instrument not typically associated with the genres: She will pay the harp. "Stairway to Heaven" and "In the Mood" are among the songs she plans to perform.
Attendance at the event is limited. For more information about speakers and to apply to attend, visit www.tedxtemecula.com

TED is a nonprofit organization devoted to Ideas Worth Spreading. Many people know TED from watching their free TEDTalks online at www.TED.com
. In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TED has created TEDx, a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. Our event is called TEDxTemecula. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events, including ours, are self-organized.
TEDxTemecula is being produced by a group of community minded Temecula Valley residents who are passionate about sharing the mission and experience of TED and TEDx with a local audience.
