The Southern Cultural Heritage Foundation (SCHF) is thrilled to present the 9th Annual “Classics in the Courtyard”. This event will offer a variety of entertainment through different genres of classic music. Local entertainers and local restaurants will provide the music and lunch on Fridays from 12:00pm- 1:00pm beginning October 14th and concluding November 4th. The musical entertainment is sponsored by a generous grant from Entergy Mississippi. The entertainment is provided for free and lunch can be purchased for $10 per person. Reservations are required for lunch and must be made by 5pm on the Thursday before the event.
These diverse musical styles are a special treat for the Vicksburg community and we hope many will embrace and enjoy the local music and local flavor Vicksburg has to offer. This event has become a much anticipated Vicksburg tradition. There is no better beginning to the fall season than “Classics in the Courtyard”.
