The Summer Concert Series will be held on the third Thursday each month from May through September from 6 to 8 p.m. The series will feature the best of local and regional area talent.
This year's series will be kicked off with an acoustic concert featuring Warrenton natives Tiffany and T.J. Mimbs.
Tiffany and T.J. are both students at the University of Georgia. Tiffany has played the lead role in numerous area musical productions such as Hello, Dolly! and The Sound of Music. Tiffany was a member of the GISA State Champion Girl's Trio, and she was selected for the exclusive vocal group, Noteworthy, during her freshman year at the University of Georgia.
T.J. is currently an upcoming senior finance major at the University of Georgia and was one of the exclusive 30 students chosen to begin a brand new minor there in music business. T.J. is a three time GISA Boy's Solo Champion and was a member of the two time GISA State Champion Boy's Quartet. He also has played the lead in area musical productions such as Oklahoma! and Brigadoon. T.J. wrote, produced and recorded his own album at the age of 15, and he has continued his musical career while at UGA. He and his T.J. Mimbs Band are regulars at numerous Athens venues.
"My sister and I began by singing in church and our parents took us to Southern Gospel concerts on a regular basis when we were growing up," said T.J. "Although our music is very eclectic, from country, pop and rock to contemporary Christian, that is where we trace our harmonies and our roots to."
