Women and Their Music event Feb. 20 in Fargo
The annual Celebration of Women and Their Music will be at 6:30 p.m. Feb. 20 at the Fargo Theatre.
This year’s show will feature performances by Ann Reed, Emily Holt, Chasity Brown, Lucy Michelle and the Velvet Lapelles, Naphtalia, Kristin Kitko, Haley Rydell and Rosemary Sauvageau, along with two scholarship award winners from this year.
Five scholarships will be awarded to young women who have been pursuing a career in the arts.
The scholarships and the concert are the brainchild of Deborah J. Jenkins, Fargo blues singer, chef and caterer, who will be among the performers.
The money raised at the event goes into a scholarship endowment fund established with the F-M Area Foundation, which will be awarded to local high school female artists.
To purchase tickets, call the Fargo Theatre box office at (701) 235-4152 or stop by during box office hours from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. All seats are general admission and tickets are $15 general and $10 for students.
