Fine Arts Festival Concert Information
It’s hard to believe it is almost Thanksgiving! We wanted to take a moment to send out some information about our next concert. Our next concert is our Lovejoy Fine Arts Festival on Saturday, December 5, 2015. The Lovejoy Fine Arts Festival showcases excellence in our K-12 performing and visual art programs. Each year our performing arts groups provide concerts, theatre programs and dance reviews while the visual art programs set up art galleries and working studios. It is a wonderful event that brings together our community to celebrate and give back to those in need. Please take a moment to read the information regarding when the orchestra will be performing at this required event.
