July-August 2017


Dear Fellow SMAC Members,


Whew! What a busy Spring season of SMAC events!


Congratulations to the Lakeside Singers for a wonderful set of concerts in June - two great performances by the Singers and by our SMAC scholarship winners, Molly Philpott and Colleen Ernandes, who performed with them!


The second and third Spring Coffeehouse concerts - featuring the Southwest Virginia Songwriters and the first public performance by Lake Pops – packed the Celebration Square location. If you missed this series, you’ll have another chance in the Fall!


We’re all taking a little breather for the summer, but save several dates later in the year. In October, the Panini Brothers join us as a fundraiser for the Franklin County Junior Appalachian Musicians chapter, the Annual SMAC Art Show moves to Bethlehem United Methodist Church, and the Lake Players present “Weekend Comedy” at the W. E. Skelton 4-H Center. You’ll also hear more about our annual meeting in October, a SMAC Coffeehouse Concert in November, and SMAC’s annual holiday concert, with the Wiley family and friends, in December.


You’ll find further info, including announcements of Lake Writers’ book talk events, in this newsletter and on the SMAC website, which you can reach at www.smithmountainartscouncil.com and at www.SMAC-Arts.com.


Thank you for being a member of the Smith Mountain Arts Council!
