A variety of artistic media will be showcased this Sunday, April 1, at Barns of Rose Hill. A talent pool of over 50 local performers and artists will be represented. The highly-acclaimed Clarke County High School Chamber Choir will be the headlining act, performing a dozen songs. Admission to the concert is $15.

A silent auction precedes the concert and features the donated works of many local artists. Proceeds from both fundraisers go toward the choir’s four-day trip to The National Festival of the States in New York City. The festival features performing groups from each of the 50 states selected on the basis of recommendation from state and national music educators, governors, senators, congressional representatives and/or by audition.

    We never did get to hear who won the golf ball drop.

    • Wendy K. says:

      Not me unfortunately! 🙂 But I’ll check with Dr. Keebaugh and see if he thinks it’s OK to post the winners’ names. He may want to get their permission first. I’m not sure.

  2. Right Winger says:

    Nor interested in the winners being named, just wanted to hear how much these fantastic kids were able to raise.

    • Just wanted to clarify the comment above in case people weren’t following the thread: the amount referenced here was made from the golf ball drop.
