JMArts’ season opens with Fall Showcase


SILER CITY — The 2021-22 arts season at Jordan-Matthews High School kicks off Oct. 21 with a free preview featuring performances by the JM Chorus and JM Jazz Ensemble, followed by a short reception with light refreshments provided by JMArts.

The one-hour concert, which begins at 7 p.m. in the school’s auditorium, will include a preview from Band Director J.C. Harper, Chorus Director Elliott Peterson and JMArts President Rose Pate at some exciting events ahead.

The evening also features the presentation of a $100 award to the JM artist whose work was selected for the 2021 JMArts Holiday Cards, plus a chance to purchase cards, as well as JMArts greeting cards and to join JMArts to get free admission to major events this season and help our student artists excel.

As part of their broad examination of how musical theater operates, Music Specialization students will be working “front of house” at the 2021 Fall Showcase, serving as event staff, ushers and introducing musical numbers.

To keep performers and the audience safe, masks are required, vaccinations are strongly encouraged and seating in the auditorium will be socially distanced.

Jordan-Matthews is located at 910 East Cardinal St. in Siler City.
