The McCraney-Cottle Arts Council is having a sacred music concert on Thursday, April 7 at the First United Methodist Church in Tallassee.

Among the singers to perform include; Nancy Hastings Hornsby.

"She's an outstanding vocalist," MCAC director Jerry Cunningham said. "She went to school here. Her dad was a minister at First Methodist. She married Clay Hornsby. They live in Alexander City now."

Talent also includes: Kenneth Loomis, a THS graduate with a degree from Samford; Jordan Dark, another Tallassee alum with a vocal degree from Auburn and THS music teacher Kelley Hill, who has a degree from Montevallo. Elizabeth Ames, a high school senior, who will be attending college as a music major, will be playing cello at the concert.

Cunningham himself will also be a part of the program.

"James Bush and I will be performing," Cunningham said. "Both of us got our vocal degress from Auburn."

Cunningham added that the gospel program that has been an annual staple is expected to be back on the MCAC schedule next season.
