Everyone’s invited, so mark your calendars and don’t miss a single night of this great line-up of entertainment.

Four Heart Harmony, a gospel music female quartet from Broadway, is slated to appear on August 21. Four Heart Harmony has won the Female Quartet Trophy award distributed at the State Annual Sing Competition in Benson, North Carolina, for 13 of the past 14 years.
