Let's raise some money for youth music scholarships ... and support young musicians in our community, as they take the stage at The EPC!
Arts Connection of Central Illinois, the nonprofit organization that operates the Effingham Performance Center, is working with area music teachers to present the Rising Star Showcase. The Showcase highlights area music students and will be held on Oct. 17, 2020, as a socially distanced event at The EPC. The event is open to the public at a cost of $10 per ticket, with tickets available for purchase through The EPC Box Office or www.ticketmaster.com/epc.
As part of the Showcase, ACCI is raising funds to create scholarships for participating music students. Scholarships may be used by students to enhance their musical development such as to pay for lessons, purchase new equipment/instruments, or enroll in camps.
ACCI hopes to raise funds of $1,000, which will then be divided into four $250 scholarships to be awarded to four of the 25 participating students. The winners will be selected randomly. If funds are raised over the $1,000 goal, the additional funds will also be used for the scholarship program.
