Making beautiful music
HOUSTON – 134 pianists of different ages and skill levels joined together at Harrisburg Baptist Church in Tupelo to share their faith through music during the annual keyboard festival sponsored by the Mississippi Baptist Convention.
The Area II festival was one of 11 statewide festivals held this year in various locations from Corinth to Pascagoula that are provided to lead young people to a relationship with Christ through sacred music.
Piano students presented musical selections in categories ranging from beginner through advanced on piano and an organ category is also available. The pianists are adjudicated by judges on their performance and presented certificates of merit and critiques.
Mignon Williamson coordinated the event at Harrisburg Baptist Church and encouraged the children and youth to continue their education in music.
“Always remember your music will last a lifetime,” Williamson said. “Stick with it.”
Music students participating from the readership area include:
n Victoria Price

n Jamiyah Braylock
n Mackenzie Huffman
n Abbie Mitchell
