There will be an encore performance on Sunday afternoon, December 8 at 2 pm at the Senior Center, also free.
These three talented performing arts groups each provide an opportunity to individuals who love to sing, play an instrument, or act and to do so with others having similar interests. They enjoy the challenge of learning new musical arrangements and acting parts and have the desire to entertain. New members are always welcome, and for more information on each group as well as their origins, current rehearsal schedules, contact information, etc., please visit www.jeffersonarts.org
