Scully: What’s happenin’?

Lyricist appreciates audience response

On Sunday, May 22, the Fine Arts Center (FAC) was nearly full to capacity for the special production, "An Afternoon with Dick Goodwin." The Columbia Choral Society (CCS) under the direction of Dr. Lillian Quackenbush sang a classical symphonic piece composed by Goodwin entitled, "Mark Twain Remarks." The audience was held spellbound with the intriguing arrangement and the talented voices accompanied by gifted pianist Allison Hilbish. The FAC's acoustically flawless venue allowed every note and word to be heard, resulting in a breath-takingly beautiful experience.
