Symphony concert

The Columbia County Orchestra kicks off its 2012-2013 season with a concert Saturday at the Jabez Sanford Hardin Performing Arts Center in the Columbia County Library.

The classical concert, beginning at 6 p.m., will feature both light and heavy works.

The audience can expect to hear pieces by Johann Strauss Jr. and his father, Johann Strauss Sr. Included in the program will be well-known waltzes, a polka and a march.

Pupils from Augusta Christian Schools and North Columbia Elementary School will perform during the masterworks concert.

The second half of the evening will be devoted to Beethoven’s Violin Concerto, featuring guest violinist Andrew Sords.

Admission is free but donations are welcome.

 

Benefit cutathon

Two Columbia County salons will give haircuts for donation only Sunday to raise money for Haleigh Gay, a 2-year-old born with a rare genetic condition.

Trendz Salon and Hair Concepts Salon and Day Spa, both in Martinez, will be holding a “cutathon” from 10 a.m. until 6 p.m. Other salon services also will be offered.

Prizes will be raffled off at both locations, and family activities will be going on throughout the day.

Haleigh was born with a heart defect and Smith-Lemli-Opitz syndrome, which delays her development and stops her body from producing cholesterol.

The toddler has already undergone two open-heart surgeries and will need at least one more.

Full event details can be found on the “Hope for Haleigh” Facebook page.
