Benefit concert set Tuesday

Pulaski County High School’s Fine Arts Department is joining together for the fourth year in a row for a concert to benefit the Pulaski County Christmas Store.
Starting at 6 p.m. on Tuesday, Nov. 25, in the Little Theatre at PCHS, students from the band, choir and drama departments will perform.
The PCHS band’s wind ensemble will be playing “The Marriage of Figaro” (opera overture), followed by “La Forza del Destino” (opera overture) by the percussion ensemble, and ending with a combined ensemble of the Golden Cougar Marching Band, wind ensemble and percussion ensemble, playing the music from this past marching band season, “KA!,” according to Patrick Butler, director of bands at PCHS.
Angela Talbert, PCHS choir director, said all three of the choir classes she directs this semester will perform several tunes each.
Students from the drama department will perform skits themed “Carol of the Bells,” “Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer” and “Christmas Around the World,” according to Jeff McCoy, director of the drama department.
In addition to these performances, the artwork of students enrolled in Steve Hester and Tammy Parks’ art classes at PCHS will be on display throughout the lobby of the Little Theatre.
This concert is free and open to the public, but donations will be accepted and will go towards the Pulaski County Christmas Store, which is a program that was created in 2004 to provide Christmas gifts for children in Pulaski County who might not otherwise receive any, due to financial constraints of their families.
The benefit concert was the brainchild of Julia Bennett, a guidance counselor at PCHS, Talbert said, adding that the department saw it as an opportunity to do something good for the local community.
When the fine arts department began the benefit concert four years ago, they ended up raising about $400, which was donated to the Christmas Store. Last year, as the popularity of the concert grew, that amount doubled, and they were able to raise approximately $800.
Talbert said she would like to see the concert draw in $1,000 this year for the Christmas Store.
In addition to being a benevolent event, Talbert said, the concert gives art, band, choir and drama the opportunity to showcase their talents together in one night and gives the audience the chance to experience all four areas of the Fine Arts Department.
She added that it also kicks off the holiday concert season for the choir and the band. She noted that the winter choir concert is set for Friday, Dec. 12, and the band concert will be held Tuesday, Dec. 16, both in the Little Theatre.
