At the end of the concert, all performers gather as one large, unified choir under the direction of Norma Edens of Rolling Bay Presbyterian Church, singing “Go Out With Joy” and “Peace Be With You.”
The concert is free and family friendly. See www.binkinterfaith.org.
You’d be nuts to miss young artists
“I love making art,” said seventh grader Amelia Keyser-Gibson, one of the young artists represented in this year’s Mixed Nuts exhibition at Bainbridge Arts andCrafts. There’s still time to see the show – part artist showcase, part educational experience. See www.bacart.org for more information.
