The goal of the organizers of this wonderful annual event is to provide a stage for local and emerging talented individuals in the performing arts. In addition, They are sometimes honored to welcome professionals, who become aware of this event, and wish to add their special flare. Every fall on the last Saturday of September they provide an out-door concert open to all free of charge. They collect donations to defer the costs and to pay honoraria to the performing artists whenever possible. Admission is free.
