MOUNT VERNON – The Austin Lounge Lizards, “the most laughable band in America,” will have people rocking and rolling with laughter at Mount Vernon Music's annual Gala on Saturday, Sept. 6 at 7 p.m. at 402 Leftwich St.
The light-hearted event marks the beginning of MVM's ninth concert season, and will open with a reception by Key Club of Mt. Vernon. This year's Gala will feature both a silent and live auction of gourmet edibles and items from local merchants and artisans, with all proceeds of the auction going to MVM's Betty Whitlock Scholarship fund for talented young musicians.
Tickets for this event are $25, $10 for children under 12. Advance ticket sales are available at both branches of First National Bank of Mt. Vernon, by calling Mount Vernon Music at 903-563-3780, or at the website www.mountvernonmusic.org. Tickets also available at the door. Seating is limited.
Memberships in MVM start at $25 and support all the organization's work, including scholarships for young musicians and outreach work for schools and seniors. Memberships are good for the year June 1 through May 31, and members receive discounts on ticket pricing. See website for details.
Mount Vernon Music is a 501(c)(3) organization formed in 2006 to further the performance of classical and other fine music in rural East Texas.
