The Performing Arts Showcase of the Columbus Invitational Arts Competition is a peer-judged showcase event for groups that combine social/civic responsibility with artistic excellence. The Showcase will be held on Saturday, August 24, 2013, at 7:00 p.m. at the Columbus Performing Arts Center, 549 Franklin Avenue near the Columbus Main Library. Women in Music – Columbus was honored with an invitation to participate this year because we are a community-oriented performing arts organization. Jessica Kahn, soprano, accompanied by Laura Flowers Benson, piano, will represent WMC in this family-friendly night of top performance competition. Tickets are $10 ($5 for children) at the door. Members of WMC can get advance tickets for $5. Contact Jerry Casey at email@example.com for how to order your tickets in advance. These performances will be judged by a panel drawn from the participating groups, including one judge who will represent our organization. There will also be an audience-selected winner. Plan to attend and support your fellow WMC performers.
