Conservatory of the Ozarks offers individualized fine arts instruction and music lessons from degreed and experienced faculty, for students of all ages and all levels of experience (including no experience). The Conservatory is accepting entries for their annual Summer Talent Show, to take place Saturday August 2nd from 5:00 to 10:00 pm at the Chesterfield Village Fountain behind Garbo’s Pizzeria, 2101 W. Chesterfield Blvd. Conservatory Director Heather Leverich says a wide variety of acts has already signed up, but “what we DON’T have this year so far is any dancers, and I really wish we did!” So all dancers are encouraged to enter. In case of inclement weather the Talent Show will take place at Wesley United Methodist Church, 922 W. Republic Road. Official entry deadline is July 22nd, with a $5 late fee charged for late entries. All ages are welcome to participate in the talent show, either solo or ensemble entries. The evening will include free games for kids. Admission is free and open to the public; but to vote for individual acts you’ll need to purchase a token for $1.00 per vote, which is also the cost of a raffle ticket. The talent show is a fundraiser for the “Missouri Autism Report,” a free magazine distributed to families with a family member along the autism spectrum, containing lists of community resources and other information.
