Music Arts has been offering music instruction to local children, youth, and adult music students for 30 years, the release said. The school provides private professional instruction in piano, woodwind, brass, strings, percussion, and voice, including country instruments such as guitar, fiddle, mandolin, and banjo.
The release said the Mary Cox Memorial Scholarship Fund is named in honor of longtime former instructor Mary Cox, and it offers scholarships to help defray the cost of music lessons for deserving, underprivileged students.
The faculty recital starts at 7 p.m. Saturday, Sept. 15, at Grace Lutheran Church at 131 West Gettysburg Ave. in Oak Ridge.
