Women step to the fore for Kennesaw

March 11, 2013 by  

Next month will see a Kennesaw woman take to perhaps the biggest stage of all, as the singing troupe she represents plays ‘Carnegie Hall’ in New York City.

Lynn Parks, a North Cobb High graduate currently studying out of Eastern Kentucky University, will take to the world-renowned stage with the University Singers on April 8. The 30-strong troupe will perform a selection of six pieces.

Lynn and her colleagues will no doubt treasure the moment forever, and would rightly be expected to take an interest in the poster printing going on for the event.

Indeed, no-one connected with the performance is under any illusions as to what a big moment it will be. Dr. Richard Waters, the musical director for the singers, said:

“This is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity for our students to perform in one of the world’s most revered concert halls.”

This month also sees women being celebrated directly in the local Kennesaw area, with the Cobb County Public Library System hosting its Women’s History Month

Honoring the contributions of women to society, there will be book discussions and free to attend film screenings.

The Kennesaw Library will discuss Stacy Schiff’s book, ‘Cleopatra: A Life’ on March 23, repeated March 26, while the West Cobb Regional Library in Kennesaw is hosting a film series.

Taking place every Saturday through the month, movies celebrating the empowerment of women will be shown. The event will started with ‘The Hunger Games’ on March 9, followed by ‘Princess and the Frog’ (March 16), ‘Coraline’ (March 23) and ‘Brave’ (March 30). Every movie will start at 3:00 pm.
