LINCOLN HIGHWAY BENEFIT CONCERT
On Sunday, August 21, at 5:00 PM, the Four Seasons Chamber Orchestra will perform a special concert at St. John in the Wilderness Church Parish Hall, 1895 Greenville Highway, Flat Rock, NC. In honor of Sandburg and his Pulitzer Prize winning Lincoln biographies, the Four Seasons Chamber Orchestra will perform three musical selections highlighted with readings by Paige Posey in each interlude: Lincoln Highway Suite (Nolan Stolz), Travel’s End (Florence Price), and Music from “Lincoln” (John Williams). The Orchestra, founded in 2009, performs one concert each season in intimate settings in Western North Carolina to raise community awareness of local causes and organizations. The Lincoln Highway Benefit Concert, with Eric Scheider conducting, will benefit The Friends of Carl Sandburg Scholarship Fund, supporting local students in their educational pursuits. Tickets are $25 per person and can be purchased at the Parish Hall on the evening of the concert or online. To purchase tickets online, click the yellow “DONATE NOW” button.
