The Community Music School of the Piedmont and the Middleburg Lions Club will host the James Allen Bland Competition at 2 p.m. on Sunday, Feb. 3 at The Hill School. Residents are invited to attend the event to see 8-minute vocal and instrumental performances by local elementary, middle and high school students.

The Bland Music Scholarship Program was established in 1948 to assist and promote cultural and educational opportunities for Virginia’s musically talented youth. Winners will progress to the district and state competitions held in March and April.
