The Piney Woods School is hosting its fifth annual “Give from Your Heart” Gospel Festival which takes place Saturday, May 4, 2019 @11 AM to 6 PM on the campus of the historic Piney Woods Mississippi co-ed boarding school. “This is a great way to raise money for the school while also allowing the public to get a glimpse of what we do here,” says Piney Woods School President, Dr. Will Crossley.
A variety of food vendors will be on hand to feed the hungry crowd and there will be recreational activities for the youth. The all-day concert will feature the Grammy® nominated artists Brian Courtney Wilson and Anthony Brown. Also performing will be Jor’dan Armstrong, Fred Jerkins & Last Call, Tim Bowman Jr., Jermaine Dolly, as well as Jackson’s very own Four Washington, a dynamic urban inspirational group of teenage siblings.
The Piney Woods School choir, the Cotton Blossom Singers, will be performing as well. Ticket prices are $15 and a family pack of 4 tickets are $50. Children 15 years old and younger attend for free. All tickets are available from www.pineywoods.org or by calling (601) 845-2214.
