YOUNG HARRIS, Ga. – Young Harris College is pleased to announce several upcoming fine arts events, including the Cheryl Goldsleger and Larry Millard Art Exhibit, the Concert Band Senior Showcase, the Mu Phi Epsilon Member Recital and the Fall Choral Concert. These events are open to the public and free to attend.
The opening reception for the Goldsleger and Millard Art Exhibit is Thursday, Oct. 4 at 6 p.m. at the Campus Gate Art Galley (CGAG), which is located at 5149 College Street, Young Harris, Ga. 30582.

The Cheryl Goldsleger and Larry Millard Art Exhibit, entitled “Enigma2,” displays Goldsleger’s paintings and drawings that weave together geometry with abstract, painterly marks to express one’s contemporary sensibilities. Millard’s use of geometrical forms in his sculptures gives the impression that his pieces are innate objects in the spaces humans occupy.
The Concert Band Senior Showcase will take place Sunday, Oct. 7 at 3 p.m. in Glenn-McGinnis Hall on the Young Harris College campus, which is located at 1 College Street, Young Harris, Ga. 30582. Under the direction of Assistant Professor of Music and Director of Bands Kerry Bryant, Ph.D., the Concert Band Senior Showcase is designed to feature YHC’s most talented senior musicians performing professional solos with the YHC band.
On Thursday, Oct. 18, the Mu Phi Epsilon Member Recital will take place at 7 p.m. in Glenn-McGinnis Hall. The Mu Phi Epsilon Member Recital will showcase the talents of YHC students who are involved in this co-educational international professional music fraternity that recognizes both scholarship and musicianship.
The Fall Choral Concert will be held Saturday, Oct. 27 at 7 p.m. in Glenn-McGinnis Hall. This performance of choral masterworks will be presented by the YHC Concert Choir and Chamber Choir.
