Marshall features a week of music for all tastes | Arts & Culture
Marshall, Texas will be Center Stage this weekend with spectacular concerts and special musical performances.
The music began on Valentines Day evening, when the Marshall Symphony League presented Amy Carlile, soprano, during a special Valentine’s edition of "Meet the Symphony." Accompanied by pianist Glennda Abraham, Carlile shared her musical talents in a free performance at Central Perk's in downtown Marshall.
A world-class gospel act, The Isaacs, will take Center Stage at the Marshall Convention Center Friday, Feb. 15, bringing extraordinary talent to Marshall.
