The Kershaw County Music Association will host a scholarship benefit concert Sunday, featuring internationally acclaimed baritone Reginald Smith, Jr. Mr. Smith has sung in some of the great music halls of the world.

Admission is free but donations to the scholarship fund will be gratefully accepted.

KCMA sponsored their annual scholarship competition in February. 

The available scholarships included a Junior Scholarship for middle school students, a Senior Scholarship for high school students and the Margaret Beckley Upton Brevard Scholarship.  The Junior and Senior Scholarships awarded funds for private musical study.  The Brevard Scholarship funded 6-weeks of music study at Brevard Music Institute in Brevard, NC. 

The winner of the Brevard Scholarship for 2017 was Clinton Washington III.  Clinton auditioned and won the scholarship with a marimba solo selection, however, percussionists are expected to be able to play a wide variety of instruments--both in the marching band and in the orchestra.  Clinton spent the summer working to hone his timpani skills as well as working to perfect his marimba playing.  He performed several times during the summer and on closing weekend was the timpanist for Dvorak’s Symphony No. 8 under the baton of Maestro Lam. Clinton is back home now working with Band Director Glenn Price at Lugoff-Elgin High School and planning his next round of auditions.  He is making plans for college and a possible future as a professional musician.

The concert will be at 3 p.m. in the sanctuary of Lyttleton Street United Methodist Church in Camden.
