Since fifth grade, it has been Nigel Yarbrough’s goal to pursue a career as a musician. Every day since, the Blinn College sophomore has been working to achieve just that.
Now he’s preparing to take the next step in his musical career at the School of Music at Baylor University. To raise money for a personal saxophone and help pay his tuition, Yarbrough is hosting a benefit concert May 22 from 7-8:30 p.m. at Glasco Landscaping in Brenham (601 North Blue Bell Road, Brenham).
“Music is something I’ve been passionate about for as long as I can remember,” Yarbrough said. “I’m so grateful for this opportunity to pursue it in school.”
Yarbrough was named the first back-to-back state champion in the Texas Community College Band Directors Association’s (TCCBDA) concerto competition in 2013 and ‘14, and has performed in numerous Blinn concerts. At Baylor, Yarbrough hopes to join the symphonic band or wind ensemble.
Those unable to attend Yarbrough’s concert can send a check to Championship Fellowship, Attn: Nigel Yarbrough, 304 E. Lubbock St. Brenham, TX 77833. For more information or to RSVP for the concert, contact David Hughes at 979-421-2784 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
