Thank You to the Watauga Arts Council and NC Arts Council!

The Spring 2021 semester of the Appalachian Youth Chorale was supported by a Grassroots Grant! This project was funded through the Watauga County Arts Council, a Designated County Partner of the North Carolina Arts Council (www.NCArts.org). CMS would like to thank Amber Bateman, Executive Director of the Watauga Arts Council, and the WAC team for making this grant possible!
