Women of Weymouth Conclude Season With Luncheon
The Women of Weymouth concluded their 2008-2009 season with the annual Strawberry Festival luncheon Monday, May 18.
After a short business meeting announcing the new board, Kathy Evans turned the gavel over to the new WOW president, Ann Arnold. K.C .Holliday provided a musical program for a full house of ladies.
Holliday moved to Southern Pines a year ago as a new bride and teaches piano and flute. She recently starred as Peggy Sawyer in the Moore Onstage production of "42nd Street." Holliday toured six continents as a singer/dancer aboard Holland American Line's Noordam and Regent Seven Seas Cruises' Mariner for two years.
She has also performed on the Las Vegas Strip, including Paris, Venetian, Planet Hollywood, and Rio Hotel and Casinos, as well as production shows for Six Flags Over Texas in Arlington, Texas. From 1997 to 2002, Holliday was a featured soloist for University Park United Methodist Church in Dallas.
She received a bachelor's degree in music (cum laude) from Southern Methodist University as well as graduate credits for a master's of fine arts from New York University. She holds a K-12 certification in band, orchestra, and choir from the state of Texas. While teaching middle school, her choirs received the highest honors, including the University Interscholastic League sweepstakes award.
Holliday has also directed many choirs for both Desert Spring United Methodist Church in Las Vegas, and Lord of Life Lutheran in Plano, Texas. She enjoys teaching music and theater workshops throughout the country and has produced a vocal and flute CD collection of "Wedding Solos."
In addition to her recent work in "42nd Street," she has theater credits including Maria in "The Sound of Music, "Susan in "Tick, Tick BOOM!," Della in "Gifts of Magi," and Eliza in "My Fair Lady."
Her military husband is currently on tour in Afghanistan while she keeps busy teaching voice, flute, and piano from her home in Southern Pines.
"We are extremely fortunate to have such a talented and beautiful lady perform for us," said Jerry Turk, who introduced Holliday.
The day was sunny, although a bit chilly. The ladies gathered their lunch of salad, tea sandwiches and the strawberry shortcake provided by Marian Gaida's committee and congregated throughout the house and gardens.
Membership in the Friends of Weymouth includes membership in Women of Weymouth just by checking on the membership card available at Weymouth as well as in an early July mailing.
"We are looking forward to many more fine programs in the coming 2009-2010 season, starting with the first meeting on Sept. 21, and Supper on the Grounds on Sept. 24," says Ann Arnold.
