Sweets and Musical Treats gives student musicians a venue to perform

MILLEDGEVILLE — The Milledgeville Music Club is once again hoping to raise enough funds to help support music programs at Baldwin County schools and provide musically-inclined students a stage to express their talents. 

This year’s annual “Sweets and Musical Treats” music showcase is slated at 7 p.m. Tuesday, Feb. 18 in the Georgia Military College Goldstein Center for Performing Arts, featuring singers, dancers and musicians from Baldwin High School, Oak Hill Middle School, Georgia Military College Prep School and the Barnes Piano Studio.

“The purpose of the program is to raise some money that will go back into the schools to help teachers with some of their out-of-pocket expenses,” said Ruby Werts, co-chair of the musical program. “The other purpose is to give students an opportunity to perform pieces they would not be able to perform anywhere else.

“The Oak Hill jazz band will open the program with a Dizzy Gillespie piece. Baldwin High student Courtney Prosser will play the ‘Star Spangled Banner’ on her trumpet. One highlight of the evening will be pianist Elle Hupp who will close our program,” Werts said. “We just really want to give students an opportunity to perform in public and show their talent when there’s no other venue to perform other than at their school.”

Small group performances, including the GMC Literary Team, GMC One Act musical cast, Oak Hill jazz band, Baldwin High Literary Team and Baldwin High chorus, will showcase their talent along with individual student performances from the Barnes Piano Studio.

“This is the best of the best. This is not your usual school concert or piano recital,” said Dr. Stephen Barnes, also co-chair of the program. “This is each of the music educators presenting their finest talent in solo performance, duos, trios, quartets and large ensembles.”
