News Release, College of Southern Maryland
Prince Frederick, MD- The College of Southern Maryland (CSM) hosts the second free concert in its 2019 – 2020 Ward Virts Concert Series at its Prince Frederick Campus Sunday, Nov. 10. The concert features the Southern Maryland Chamber Players and starts at 3 p.m. with doors opening at 2:30 p.m.
The Ward Virts Concert Series celebrates the life and talent of Ward Virts, a talented Southern Maryland pianist who died suddenly in 1993. A group of Ward’s friends and classmates conceived the Ward Virts Piano Project to bring the love of life, beauty, and music that Ward embodied to a new generation of Southern Maryland students, performers, and appreciative audiences.
The concerts are performed on a world-class handcrafted Bosendorfer Grand Piano, a gift to CSM’s Prince Frederick Campus from the Ward Virts Piano Project. Sponsors of the 2018-2019 series include the CSM Foundation, Dr. and Mrs. Henry Virts, Eric and Rané Franklin, Mary Anna Phillips and Stovy and Anne Brown. Additional funding is provided by the Arts Council of Calvert County and Maryland State Arts Council grants. For dates and musician bios related to the Ward Virts series, visit Ward Virts Calender

The Southern Maryland Chronicle is a local, small business entrusted to provide factual, unbiased reporting to the Southern Maryland Community. While we look to local businesses for advertising, we hope to keep that cost as low as possible in order to attract even the smallest of local businesses and help them get out to the public. We must also be able to pay employees(part-time and full-time), along with equipment, and website related things. We never want to make the Chronicle a “pay-wall” style news site.
To that end, we are looking to the community to offer donations. Whether it’s a one-time donation or you set up a reoccurring monthly donation. It is all appreciated. All donations at this time will be going to furthering the Chronicle through hiring individuals that have the same goals of providing fair, and unbiased news to the community. For now, donations will be going to a business PayPal account I have set-up for the Southern Maryland Chronicle, KDC Designs. All business transactions currently occur within this PayPal account. If you have any questions regarding this you can email me at firstname.lastname@example.org
Thank you for all of your support and I hope to continue bringing Southern Maryland the best news possible for a very long time. — David M. Higgins II
