Talent Showcase Performances by Scholarship Winners
Thursday, April 20, 2017
Woodstock Opera House 5:30 pm

On April 20, 2017, WFAA Helen Wright Scholarship recipients will perform on the Opera House stage at the annual Talent Showcase. Free to the public, this annual event is not to be missed. Reservations are not required. A reception immediately follows the performance. Please join us for this inspiring display of talent and grace.

The Scholarship Committee of the Woodstock Fine Arts Association thanks all of the students who submitted applications for the Helen Wright Scholarship. We are proud of all the seniors from throughout McHenry County who took the time to apply, and more importantly, who found time in their busy high school lives to pursue their love of the arts. We hope the students who were not awarded scholarships will continue to pursue their artistic talents.
