The Adams County Arts Council will hold its Annual Meeting on Tuesday, March 2, 6pm to 7pm virtually. This year’s hour-long program begins at 6pm. Members and anyone interested in learning more about the organization are welcome to attend this free event virtually by requesting a link to access the meeting.
Applause Awards will be presented for outstanding support to Lana Gowin recognizing her many years of dedicated volunteer service to the arts council, M&T Bank, VP Business Banker, Sharon Kebil-Whistler in recognition of their Corporate support to our mission, and to Lark, A Modern Market Place, small business owned by Timbrel Wallace, for local sponsorship of our program. Executive Director Leona Rega will present a video recap of 2020 programs and share the outstanding work by the staff during a year of obstacles.
Our special guests this year will be presented by Adams County Arts Council (ACAC) Outreach Coordinator Lisa Cadigan and professional violist and music educator Dr. Adam Paul Cordle. Dr. Cordle directed a Chamber Music Institute offered in our arts education center during December 2020. The program combined an in-person and virtual experience serving 38 middle school and high school students from the Conewago, Fairfield, Gettysburg, and Upper Adams School Districts who were placed in ensemble groups of three to six based on their age, experience level, and instrumentation. The Institute supported school music programs that have been struggling to find ways to allow students to safely engage in music making activities during the pandemic. Students participated in this after-school program thanks to funding by the J. William Warehime Foundation.
