Paul Todd is a Christian artist, but his love of music and skill as a keyboard player has taken him on musical journeys outside the church. He incorporates classical, pop, Broadway, the Great American Songbook and more into his work. He plays as many as six keyboards simultaneously and is a singer, songwriter and composer. He’ll be joined in concert by his son Paul Todd Jr. on percussion and vocals April 6 at Advent Lutheran Church in Boca Raton.
This evening of music and fellowship begins with cheese and wine at 6:15 p.m. followed by the concert at 7 in the sanctuary at the church, 300 E. Yamato Road. Tickets are $20 and available at www.adventboca.org. For more information, contact the church office at 395-3632.

Leadership expert to speak
Glenn Edwards, author of Coming Into Your Own: How to Develop the Morals and Mindset of a (Future) Business Leader, will speak and sign books at 6 p.m. April 12 at Chabad of East Boca Raton, 120 NE First Ave., Boca Raton.
Edwards says a business degree might get you an interview. It might even get you the job. But climbing the corporate ladder takes more than a good GPA. To succeed, you need “a positive mentality, a value system and a willingness to put in time and effort to achieve your goals.” But where are you going to find that? Edwards has answers and 30 five-star reviews on amazon.com.
Tickets are $18, and sponsorships are available. For more info, visit www.chabadbocabeaches.com or call 394-9770.
