We never know the path others are traveling

It saddens my heart that so many are sick and so many are dying. May we at this time pause and have a moment of silence for those that we have lost. They are our family members, friends

r celebrate the artsThe Celebrate the Arts Concert, presented by Prime Mortgage Lending, will be headlined by rising star Delphi Freeman. The concert will take place on Wednesday, October 3, at 7 p.m. at the Angelus Theatre, 165 N Main St., Spanish Fork.

Local American Idol alum Katie Dellenbach Higley and the Spanish Fork High School Elite Orchestra will also perform. The high-caliber of artists ensure this will be an evening to remember.

While tickets to the free concert are already gone, there will be a standby line. Those seats not filled at 7 p.m. will be made available to those in the standby line.

While the concert is free, donations to the Spanish Fork High School and Spanish Fork Junior High arts programs are encouraged.

Concert Organizer Gregg Driggs, from Prime Mortage, said he wants to support arts in the schools and help High School students see they can make living in the arts.

As part of the program, Freeman and Higley will talk to students prior to the concert about turning music into a career.

Driggs said that like many others he is tired of seeing the arts get pushed out of schools and kids discouraged from pursuing careers in the arts.

Driggs son is a professional sound manager for concerts and events. “He didn’t know until halfway through college that he could make a living through the arts,” Driggs said.

Katie Higley is a talented singer, mother and local music teacher. Delphi Freeman was recently named International Artist of the Week on Pure West Radio.

The event will be recorded by SF17.
