The Chatham Experience: Benefit Concert for Chatham Arts Council's Artists-in-Schools Initiative

About this Event

The Chatham Experience: Benefit Concert for the Chatham Arts Council's Artists-in-Schools Initiative is Sunday, September 29!

This year’s event is a unique cross-generational fundraising concert, sponsored by Opus Financial Advisors, featuring musical performances by Chatham Rabbits, Tommy Edwards & The Bluegrass Experience (on their 48th anniversary!), Diali Cissokho, special guest students, and more! You’ll hear original music, traditional songs you know and love, folk music, tried and true bluegrass, West African folk music (with the kora!) – all amidst the fun, distinct backdrop of the Chatham Beverage District. Smelt Art Gallery will host a special show featuring Chatham County artists from our "Meet This Artist" series, along with art from Chatham County Schools students! You won’t want to miss incredible collaborations between young and distinguished musicians, who will be creating truly one-of-a-kind performances before your very eyes.

At The Chatham Experience, you can dance to the banjo or fiddle, peruse Fair Game Beverage’s tasting room for local spirits, NC wines, local beer, and Chatham Ciderworks cider! You can also try honey wine from Starrlight Mead. Copeland Springs Farm & Kitchen will be offering fresh, healthy and delicious meals straight from the farm! There’s something for everyone at the Chatham Arts Council’s fall fundraiser this year. The doors open at 4pm and the show starts at 5pm.

The heart and soul behind this event is our Artists-in-Schools Initiative. During the 2018-19 school year, we brought artists into all ten traditional public elementary schools in Chatham County. That’s right. All ten! What did that look like, you may ask? A program that made 24 direct curriculum connections, enhancing the lives of nearly 3,000 students. And we have big goals for next year. We’re hoping to expand the AIS initiative to Chatham Charter School, Willow Oak Montessori, and Woods Charter School so that we are reaching every public elementary school in Chatham County. Help us reach our goal by attending this unique event on September 29.
