Bertoni Gallery and Music for Humanity have partnered to establish the Music for Humanity Bill Perry Scholarship Fund in memory of a world renowned blues musician Bill Perry who was born in Chester and died in Sugar Loaf in 2007.

Each year it is presented to a high school senior student who shows great promise in the field of music.  An ideal candidate will be a student who is attending college for music and looking to further their education and passion for music.

The Warwick Valley Chorale has announced its May 2015 concert series, “From Country Roads to Broadway,” with three upcoming area concerts. As always, admission is free, although donations will be welcome. These concerts will mark the group’s 74th consecutive year of choral performances.

The concerts will open with “Frostiana,” a series of Robert Frost’s best-known poems set to lush pastoral music by Randall Thompson. “Stopping by Woods on a Snowy Evening,” “Choose Something Like a Star,” and five other Frost selections will showcase the New England wit and insight of Frost’s iconic poems.
