National Stephen Foster Day is Sunday at Stephen Foster Folk Culture Center State Park

White Springs —

On Sunday, Jan. 12, Stephen Foster Folk Culture Center State Park in White Springs will be hosting a concert to celebrate the 63rd Annual National Stephen Foster Day. This yearly event commemorates the 1864 death of master songwriter Stephen Foster.

Alexander Solomon and Amanda Caban, winners of the statewide Stephen Foster/Jeanie vocal competition sponsored by the Florida Federation of Music Clubs will be the featured guest performers. They, as well as others, will be dressed in period attire.

A performance on the Stephen Foster Carillon will also be played. The carillon is more than 200 feet tall and contains the largest collection of tubular bells in the world. 

These live performances from talented young musical artists in a beautiful setting in the park are sure to entertain both young and old alike.

The concert begins at 2 p.m. in the Stephen Foster Carillon Tower. Refreshments, sponsored by the Stephen Foster Citizens Support Organization, will be served after the concert. Admission to the event is free with paid park admission of $5 per vehicle for up to eight passengers.
