You won’t want to miss this year’s fall fundraiser event. Join us for The Chatham Experience: Benefit Concert for Chatham Arts Council’s Artists-in-Schools Initiative, on Sunday, September 29!
This year’s event is a unique cross-generational fundraising concert, sponsored by Opus Financial Advisors, featuring musical performances by Chatham Rabbits, Tommy Edwards and The Bluegrass Experience (on their 48th anniversary!), Diali Cissokho, special guest students, and more! With your $50 ticket, you’ll hear original music, traditional songs you know and love, folk music, tried and true bluegrass, West African folk music (with the kora!) and even young local students who will sit in and play with these well-known musicians – all amidst the fun, distinct backdrop of the Chatham Beverage District.
This year’s event will include incredible collaborations between young and distinguished musicians, who will be creating truly one-of-a-kind performances before your very eyes. You can dance to live music, grab a drink or food at any of the Chatham Beverage District options, and check out some amazing art. Smelt Art Gallery will host a special art show featuring Chatham County artists from the CAC’s “Meet This Artist” series, along with art from Chatham County Schools students. There’s something for everyone at the Chatham Arts Council’s fall fundraiser this year.
The heart and soul behind this event is our Artists-in-Schools Initiative. This year, we brought artists into all ten traditional public elementary schools in Chatham County. That’s right. All ten! What did that look like, you may ask? A program that made 24 direct curriculum connections, enhancing the lives of nearly 3,000 students. And we have big goals for next year. We’re hoping to expand the AIS initiative to Chatham Charter School, Willow Oak Montessori, and Woods Charter School so that we are reaching every public elementary school in Chatham County. Help us reach our goal by attending this unique event on September 29.
