“The Piano Music of Beethoven Makes the Heart Sing” is the theme of the Arkansas City Music and Dramatics Club’s meeting at 1:30 p.m. Oct. 16 at First United Methodist Church, 2448 Edgemont Dr., in Arkansas City.

To celebrate the 250th anniversary of Ludvig van Beethoven, coordinators Melba Maechtlen and Kathy Spradlin have arranged for four pianists to present some of his most familiar and beloved works:

“Fur Elise” — Martha Brandenburg;

“Sonatina in F” — Carol Hisken;

“First Movement or Moonlight Sonata” — Melba Maechtlen;

“Second Movement of Sonata Pathetique” — Stephen Butler.

Music in Poetry is by Judy Day-Trenary.

Scholarship auditions were held recently for the Arkansas City Music and Dramatics Club scholarships. Those awarded the $300 scholarships were Madilynn Sanderholm, Alexis Rogers and Zane Butler.

Greeters for the meeting are Helen Bossi and Andrea Allen. Hostesses are Jan Bartel, Sherry Baxter and Jan Spangler.

The club will meet in the sanctuary, with social spacing and masks recommended.

Guests and new members are always welcome. Contact any Music Club member for more information.
