Young Musicians Festival Scheduled
The Weymouth Center for the Arts & Humanities is holding the annual Young Musicians Festival Saturday and Sunday, Feb. 16 and 17.
Auditions will be held on Saturday, and the Finalists' Concert will be held Sunday at 3 p.m. Both events take place in the Great Room at Weymouth Center.
The festival is open to students from Moore County and the surrounding counties of Cumberland, Lee, Montgomery, Richmond, Scotland and Hoke. Students in grades 4-12 currently studying an instrument or voice are eligible to participate.
Sponsored by the Weymouth Music Committee, the festival was envisioned by Rose Ehrhardt, a member of the committee during the early formation of music programming at Weymouth.
Inspired by Weymouth owner Katharine Lamont Boyd's love of music, the festival reflects her interest in music and its study for young people.
The festival's purpose is to provide opportunities for young musicians to perform for judges who critique their skills for use in their studies. Festival judge will be Frank Pittman, of Meredith College.
Finalists in Divisions One, Two, Three and Four will be invited to perform the concert Sunday, Feb. 17, in the Great Room.
Festival Chair Sue Aceves will be assisted by members of the music committee.
Weymouth is at 555 E. Connecticut Ave. , Southern Pines.
