Dixie Music Center’s spring recital Satuday

-A A +A

Dixie Music Center will be holding it's Spring Recital Saturday, April 27, at 4 p.m. The Dixie County Historical Society will be hosting this event at the Dixie County Cultural Center (the former Old Town Elementary School) on the corner of CR 349S and 55A.

     Since its inception in 1991, Dixie Music Center has provided music lessons for a variety of instruments and for hundreds of students. Through the years, many of those students have continued making music a part of their lives and some have made it a career choice, including Mercury Records country music star Easton Corbin, who got his start at Dixie Music Center.

     This year's recital will feature guitar students, under the instruction of Mr. Bruce Miller, as well as keyboard and vocal students, with Miss Elizabeth Schlaupitz, instructing. In addition to performances by current students, there will also be some special guest alumni students this year: Chiefland resident Kinsey Ward, who has studied both guitar and voice, will play guitar and sing this year, as well as two surprise guests who will perform a couple of numbers.

     There will be a reception with light refreshments at the end of the program on the grounds of the Historical Society.

     Everyone is invited to attend this recital to see these up-and-coming musicians perform. For more information, call the Dixie Music Center at 352-542-3001.
