Community invited to KCTM’s end-of-semester concert
The Kentucky Center for Traditional Music is hosting their semester finale concert Tuesday evening.
The concert is slated to begin at 7 p.m. at the Morehead Conference Center and will feature all sections of the program’s student ensemble.
KCTM Director Daxson Lewis said audience members will get the opportunity to hear a variety of different musical styles.
“We will have a bluegrass band, we’ll have a songwriting ensemble, we’re going to feature Drusza, which is a Hungarian folk band. We have four Hungarian exchange students studying with us until May,” he said. “We have, of course, the Mountain Music Ambassadors, and we have two country bands, one focusing on classic country sounds and the other being a little more current.”
Lewis said the center’s concerts are a good way to give back to the community.
“Folks regularly attend our functions and are very supportive of our program and our students, and it’s our way to showcase all of the progress that’s being made in our program and to entertain our community for a little while,” he said.
Lewis said KCTM’s goal is to preserve and celebrate the region’s mountain heritage.
The concert is free and open to the public.
