Music has always been a part of the Marcus Fair. This year will feature something new as a Gospel Fest has been planned from 5 to 7:30 p.m. in Progress Hall.
Two very talented groups have agreed to share their musical talents with fair-goers.
The first group hails from neighboring Meriden Evangelical Free Church, Meriden Free Singers, has been noted for singing in an uplifting singing style. They get everyone's toes tapping and bring smiles to people's faces.
The second group refers to itself as True Emotion bringing passion for singing to the stage. They are driven to inspire, lead and direct a new generation to a positive message through their music and performance. Five sisters, ranging in age form 15 to 23 have spent the last seven years living out their dream. Born and raised in Iowa the group has been influenced and inspired by many different genres and artists.
This group has developed its own special sound and style. The sisters began when they were 6-13 years of age with their involvement in TV commercials and both regional and local performances.
This past year, the group has gone to a new level and traveled coast to coast to perform. They have signed on to DVILLE records and are teaming up with writers and producers. along with professional choreographers. A new record album will be coming out this coming year. This show promises to be a real treat for all ages and will convey a positive message.
