Music Week in full swing here

The hills are alive with the sounds of music as National Music Week is taking place May 2-8 with a variety of local talent performing at local venues.

Theme is “Music: A Key to the Future” and it emphasizes the impact music has on the lives of all people.

”Music is a universal language helping to promote understanding, harmony, cohesiveness and peace between all races and creeds of humanity,” said Judy Hudson, Matinee Musical Club spokesperson.

Matinee Musical Club of Rockdale, a member of the National Federation of Music Clubs, is sponsoring the week with performances each day throughout the town, many featuring young talents.

“Our club is proud to showcase the many talented young musicians in Rockdale, underscoring the importance of keeping an ongoing comprehensive music program throughout the area schools,” Hudson said. “There is still time to enjoy great music from local performers.”

“All are welcome and encouraged to come out to any of the venues and enjoy this special celebration of music while supporting local musicians,” Hudson said.
