Published 9:49am Friday, September 20, 2013

Current and past presidents of Foothills Music Club Inc. (FMC), who still live in the local area and are members of the club, were part of the group that met last month to hear the latest developments of FMC’s upcoming 25th anniversary Gala Concert set for Sunday, Oct. 13 at 3 p.m. at the Tryon Fine Arts Center (TFAC).

What an event it will be. The club believes the community will be delighted by the fine talent lined up for the program. Included will be three past scholarship award recipients, various members of the FMC and concert pianist, Beth Child.

Tickets are available from FMC members, as well as at TFAC 828-859-8322. In addition, raffle tickets for a condominium stay near Charleston, S.C., are available with a maximum of 200 tickets to be sold.

All proceeds from the Gala Concert and the raffle go to FMC’s Young Musicians Scholarship Program. Foothills Music Club, Inc. is a 501(c)3 designated organization.
