COLUMBUS, Ind. – The Mill Race Center will host a commemorative celebration of the life of Mary Clark, who founded and directed the Silver Tones Choir for almost 20 years.

Clark, who died last May, taught music and choir at Columbus East High School for 39 years. Mill Race Center then immediately approached her to develop a choir at the center.

Mary said she would – on one condition – that the participants were serious students! She was known to lead hour-long rehearsals (on the button!)

The event will take place at 3:30 p.m. Friday at the Mill Race Center (masks required). Refreshments will be served after the one hour performance.

Alumni of Mary and former members of Silver Tones will perform. The public will also have the opportunity to participate.

Featured community soloists include Matt Gordon, Mark and Ann Owens, as well as Dan and Linda Mustard.

Clark received the Golden Baton Award from the Columbus Indiana Philharmonic and was honored by the City of Columbus with the Proclamation of Mary Clark Day for her dedication and service to the community in 2018. She also donated her grand piano when the Mill Race Center was inaugurated in 2011..

Those attending the memorial service are asked to make a reservation by calling the Mill Race Center at 812-376-9241.
