Cannon School senior to host "An Evening with the Beatles" fundraiser

Rachel Dyl, a senior at Cannon School, is hosting "An Evening with the Beatles" from 7 to 10 p.m. Friday at River Run Country Club to raise money for the nonprofit MusicMinds.

The event is part of her senior project. MusicalMinds is an after-school program at Blythe Elementary that teaches classical music, and the group wants to expand to other schools.

Music has been an important part of Rachel's life, she wrote online, and she wants other kids to have that experience too. She began playing piano at 6 and violin at 8.

"My goal is to give children in our area the opportunity to have music permeate their lives and provide structure, focus, but most importantly, freedom of expression," she wrote.

The event will feature performances by local musicians, refreshments and a live auction. Visit this link for more information.
