Welcome to our opening concert of the 2022 season. We are excited to present a diverse program today with a variety of music. We have seen audiences grow over the past few years and are happy to have you as part of our musical family. Please be sure to keep spreading the word, bringing friends and enjoying our shows. We will be moving to the Amphitheater after this concert for great evenings of fun. Saturday May 28th is going to be a Dixieland theme and will be a lively and energetic concert.
We would like to thank the City of Greenwood, through the Mayor’s office, City Council, Parks Department, and School System for the great support that they give us. They all realize the importance of arts in the community and help make what we do possible. If you enjoy what you experience drop them a note to let them know.
Thanks again for being here with us and enjoy the concert.
