There will be a Grays Harbor Music Teacher's Scholarship Fundraising Concert held at the First Presbyterian Church of Aberdeen on Saturday, January 16 starting at 7pm. The production will be "The Return of the Phantom".
Well known as the Phantom in the Grays Harbor College Production of the Phantom of the Opera, Seth Hollen will return to sing at the Musicale. He is one of the recipients of a scholarship from last year's Musicale and a Musical Theater B.F.A. candidate at Central Washington University.
Others performing include Merry Jo Zimmer, Karen Meikle and Jennifer Leighton in a piano and string trio; Ruth Kivi and Merry Jo Zimmer, organ/piano duet; Debra Akerlund and Karen Meikle, violin duet; Ian and Joy Dorsch with Karen Meikle performing a Mozart Trio; The Hasbrouck Jazz Trio and Micah Hollen, Painist and 2015 Chopin NW Silver Medalist.
The Musicale is the Grays Harbor Music Teachers Association's annual scholarship fundraising concert followed by O'Brien's fabulous desserts. Many students in Grays Harbor and Pacific Counties have been helped through these scholarships. If you would like to assist but cannot attend the Musicale on January 16, you can send a donation to GHMTA c/o Merry Jo Zimmer, treasurer, 2017 W Sixth Street, Aberdeen, WA 98520.
