PINE AVENUE PERFORMING ARTS CENTER LAUNCHES HOLIDAY SEASON WITH CHRISTMAS EXTRAVAGANZA
Young participants in the Pine Avenue Performing Arts Center instrumental, vocal, and dance classes set the mood for this year’s Christmas season with a Holiday Extravaganza before a packed house in the Pine Avenue United Church auditorium, 1015 North Pine Avenue in Austin.
Dance Instructor Brittany Gill opened the show with a lively interpretive dance selection, followed by singers and the student dance troupe, Youthful Praise.
Special surprise guest performers were singers Burgandi Cashimer & Dora Washington. Closing the concert were holiday selections by the Pine Avenue Performing Arts Center Band, who brought down the house despite being together for only eight weeks and composed of many musicians who have just recently taken up learning instruments. They are under the direction of Eugene Westmoreland.
For information on the free courses in drama, singing, dance, and instrumental music at Pine Avenue Performing Arts Center, call Charley Johnson at 773/626-2528. Classes meet at 1015 North Pine Avenue every Saturday beginning at 9:00 AM.
