Speaker: Maestro Peter Jaffe
Introduced by: Past-President Ann Johnston
Peter Jaffe is one of Ann’s favorite people. Peter is the Conductor of the Stockton Symphony. At the beginning of the symphony, he always provides a great introduction/education to symphony and music. A lot of times he would dress up in a costume to entertain the audience. Peter has been with Stockton for 26 years. The Stockton Symphony has been here for 94 years.
Maestro Peter Jaffe:
A pre-valentine day’s event by Maestro Peter Jaffe and Concert Master, Christina Mok. There are different kind of love like romance, puppy love, kids, community, religion, love of communicating thru the magic of music. In 1973, Peter during his under graduate work in Ohio, Duke Ellington’s band came to perform there. Duke had a great way of communicating with the audience and during his performance he also talked about how the performers love the audience and why communication with audience is so important. Peter got inspiration from Duke Ellington and tries his best to connect with his audience. This is Peter’s 26th season at the Stockton Symphony. When pandemic happened, symphony had to re-invent itself. The players started making at-home videos. Christina played “Tomorrow” from Musical Annie, with her daughter. The Stockton Symphony also created an online contest like a fund-raising event. There is a YouTube channel for Stockton Symphony. They conducted a few online events last year. The next upcoming online event is on Feb 19th at 7 pm for Valentine celebrations. They would play real favorites love songs and share love stories from Stockton Symphony family. For more information, you can go to Stockton Symphony.org. Papapavlo’s restaurant partners with them and will have a special drink exclusively for the event. The drink can be made at home or ordered from restaurant to go with the food.
Born in Stockton, Mayor Lincoln was raised in an Army family and was inspired to serve others. Throughout his youth, Kevin served in many community outreach programs providing food and clothes to the homeless and those in need. Kevin also volunteered at the California Youth Authority where he spoke to and encouraged youth in the juvenile justice system.
With a desire to serve his Country, Kevin joined the United States Marine Corps (USMC) in 2001 and began his training at the military police academy. Kevin was later recruited by the White House Military Office and assigned to Marine One, where he would serve President George W. Bush.
Following his service in the military, Kevin worked for one of the nation’s top private security companies for eight years in Silicon Valley. He would ultimately serve as District Manager, responsible for an annual budget of over $55 million, a district support staff of 22 personnel, and a total employee base of over 1,300.
In 2013, Kevin felt the desire to resign his corporate position to serve the community of Stockton through full-time ministry at a local church. In his ministry work, Kevin served as the Executive Administrative Pastor overseeing the finances, implementation of the vision, daily operations, as well as community outreach initiatives. Kevin gets the most fulfillment by assisting those in need and helping them find the resources that will aid them and give them hope.
Kevin’s decision to run for mayor stemmed from this love of people, and desire to serve the City of Stockton. Mayor Lincoln believes Stockton is a city of potential, promise, hope, and healing. He will focus on the fundamental needs of the community and build bridges of trust to address and resolve issues including homelessness, public safety, civic engagement, and economic development, among others.
Kevin has an Associate of Arts in Business, a Bachelor of Science in Business Management, and a Master’s degree in Executive Leadership.
Kevin and his wife Bonnie have been married for 18 years and have two wonderful children.
