Students produce amazing madrigal
Tonight I had the pleasure of seeing the English Madrigal put on by the South Rowan Choral. It was simply amazing! The direction, the choreography, the singing, the entire presentation was first class.
I have attended on- and off-Broadway productions, school and college productions and dinner theaters and was most impressed by the talent displayed by these students. When I learned this was all accomplished in less than a two month time period, I was even more impressed. This is the sixth year of producing a madrigal and the first in the new Trinity Lutheran Church social hall in Landis, serving 200 people for each of the two nights of production. We invited two couples with us from out of state and all exclaimed “awesome!”
If you haven’t seen it, mark your calendar for next year at this same time. It’s impressive to see the professionalism displayed by the students. You’ll laugh, maybe cry, but be thoroughly entertained for the entire evening. A story of love was exhibited by the students and choral director, both in the production and through the spirit with which everyone performed for and with each other. Kudos to you all.

A loyal leader
I would like to tell you why I hope you will consider a vote for Bill Graham for governor. First, he is one of the smartest men I know, and the personal moral compass that guides his thoughts and actions is true. He is honest and trustworthy and will make a fine leader of North Carolina.
Bill worked his way through college and law school and has been very successful. We are very lucky he lives in Rowan County. He and his wife Shari have been asked over and over to support various local charities, and they have given their time and money more times than one can count.
On a personal note, Bill is an amazing friend. When our son was sick as an infant, Bill and Shari were two of the first, along with other friends, to offer their assistance. He would make a loyal, honest and hard working public servant.
