Music to our ears

Beaufort County Concert Association President Gene Geesey (center) congratulates board members Eleanor Rollins (left) and Michele Orus (right) for successfully obtaining a grant to fund two educational presentations for senior high school students throughout the county. Two of this season’s concert performers will host a matinee presentation and answer audience questions. On Oct. 15, the a capella group “42Five” will share its singing talent and on Feb. 19, 2013, the Canadian trio, The Abrams Brothers, will demonstrate their talents with guitars, mandolins and bass. The grant fulfills the all-volunteer BCCA mission “to cultivate in the citizens of Beaufort and surrounding counties interest in good music and to encourage the performance therein by qualified artists.” If you have a photo that you would like to share in the Daily News, please email it along with a description to yourtake@wdnweb.com.
