Ladies’ Night Out to Feature High School Entertainmentby Sharon Bohannon on October 21, 2014
Ladies, its going to be some enchanted evening on November 6. Grab your tickets, pull on your scarf, and get to St. Isidore Hall by 6 p.m. You will be glad to get out of the house and enter the dazzling, “Winter Wonderland.” There will be dinner. There will be door prizes. And there will be music from talented high school students. To top it off, there will be chances to take home some cool and seasonal goodies.
Featuring high school students at a Tri Kappa event is appropriate and timely to raise awareness of scholarships offered by Tri Kappa, especially for students interested in furthering their music, art, drama and dance careers.
Guests will bask in the melodious sounds of the harp, performed by Natalie Evans, an accomplished harpist from Goshen. In addition, the Bremen High School Swing Choir is sure to bring foot-tapping grins from their feature performance.
Natalie is a senior at Goshen High School. She has played the harp for six years, and also is proficient in piano and violin. She has performed with Goshen College Orchestra, Grace College and many other venues small and large. A year ago, Natalie traveled to Italy where she met and played with world renown music professionals at the Schlern International Music Festival.
Thirty-six students in the Bremen High School Swing Choir will give a special performance of contemporary selections, such as, “Happy,” by Pharrell Williams and “Bellas Finals,” by Pitch Perfect, plus more. “We have a ‘hodge-podge’ of power students in the Swing Choir,” said Kathy Overmyer, vocal music director. She added that the students are multi-involved and ambitious, and while their practices are intense, they are fun. Fortunately for the students and community Overmyer revived the Swing Choir in 2008, after it’s more than decade-long hiatus.
Mary Grebe, president of Tri Kappa Epsilon Pi points out, “Ladies’ Night Out is our biggest fundraiser each year. With the money raised, we are able to fund several scholarships, including two especially for art, music, drama and dance.” (see inset).
In addition, Tri Kappa members work hard to assist many community activities and charities, e.g., Bremen School programs, Community Hospital of Bremen, Bremen Public Library, and Jane’s Park, Women’s Care, Center Boys & Girls Club, and Riley Children’s Hospital.
Reservations are required to attend Ladies’ Night Out. $30 donation each. Contact Barb Unrue at 546-2743 or email her at firstname.lastname@example.org by October 27.
Tri Kappa is a sorority located only within the state of Indiana that supports education, culture, charity, and community service. The Epsilon Pi chapter of Bremen has been serving the community for 54 years.
