Sounds To Host Local Singer-Songwriter Concert

by Misha Cleveland

Sounds is once again teaming up with The Art Alliance of Central PA to pair visual arts with the art of music at its singer-songwriter show on Friday, March 20 from 8 to 10: 30 p.m. This will be the third time the Art Alliance has sent an art teacher to bring expertise and art supplies to a Sounds event, and concert attendees in the past have had a blast with the collaboration. The four musical performers include Eric Faust, Teddy Coppes, Kaleigh Brahosky, and Deb Gilmore. This alcohol-free event will be a unique and exciting experience for music and art lovers of all ages to enjoy.

Faust is the lead singer of popular State College band Lenina Crowne, and this will be a rare chance to hear him performing solo. Coppes has performed solo and as a duet at several Sounds open mic events and is ready to share a full set with us. Gilmore is a senior from the Delta High School Program who sings, plays guitar and bass, and has performed with several local bands. Lastly, Brahosky is another State College High student whose acoustic talents have wowed the crowd at past Sounds open mic events. All four performers are excited to showcase their original work and musical talents with the audience.

The show will be in the Community Room of the State College Municipal Building at 243 S. Allen St. Tickets are $3 ahead of time at the book counter at Webster’s Café and Bookstore or $5 at the door. Free tickets are available to individuals who volunteer or bring their art to sell.

Sounds is seeking volunteers to help promote the event beforehand and to set up and manage concession stands at the show. Not only do our volunteers get in for free, but they can also receive service hours for their efforts. For details on how to get involved, contact Misha Cleveland via e-mail or at (814) 933-6731.

More information is also available on Sounds’ website and Facebook page.
