JCC Arts Scene Delivers Joyful Weekend

To the Readers’ Forum:

Thank you, JCC!

Wow! What a great weekend was offered our area April 24-27 at Jamestown Community College!

Thursday evening was the opening of the student artists art exhibition in the Weeks Gallery. A tremendous assortment of talents: ceramics, still life, sketches, photography; all professionally displayed.

Then came Friday evening with the faculty recital in the Scharmann Theatre. Again, a vast assortment of music, arrangements and talents individually, duets and ensembles. The evening was ”wrapped up” with a spirited foot-tapping, energy filled jazz ensemble.

Sunday afternoon found folks at the Scharmann Theatre once again, this time for the student recital, with many instructors among the other attendees. We were not disappointed with vocal and instrumental solos from string to wind and percussion to bring a great afternoon of entertainment. All participants deserve a ”Bravo!”

Thanks to all participants for this joyful weekend, which included a time of refreshments and fellowship in the lobby.
