Stephenville Music Club kicks off 90th year with potluck celebration; plans for ByGone Days.

By Elaine Smith

The Stephenville Music Club is kicking off its 90th year with a celebration at noon on Thursday, Sept. 14, in the Fellowship Hall at First United Methodist Church.

This year’s theme, “Let Freedom Sing,” will feature a history of American music. There will be an interesting program with a focus on the American Revolution era.

You don’t have to be a musician or even sing a note. It is the shared love of music that brings us together.

A potluck luncheon will follow the program including a big birthday cake.

The Music Club is also presenting a Gospel Music Festival in conjunction with ByGone Days on Oct. 14 in the Chapel on the Bosque at the Stephenville House Museum from 11 a.m.– 3 p.m.

The event name is “Joyful Noise” which promises to present inspiring, encouraging music.

Great folks like C.B. Sutton, Dan and Cheryl DeVivo, Bob Becker, Sweet Memories Ladies Barbershop Group, Dr. Troy Robertson, Glenn Murray, and the Tuba and Euphonium Ensemble will be performing uplifting music.

Heavenly Harmonies from Denton will kick off the event. There will be silent auction items inside the chapel and food vendors outside with all the other interesting features of ByGone Days.

The Stephenville Music Club’s mission statement is “To bring the spiritualizing force of music to our community and our nation.”

Members of the club are proud of the history of bringing music to the area for 90 years and welcome anyone to join them in the mission. As a 501 3c nonprofit organization, any funds raised go to an annual scholarship given to a Tarleton State University music student.
