Charles Hudson Jr.
Friends of Wadsworth – The Legacy Continues
Charles Wadsworth may be retired, but his legacy will live on.
“We have a real emphasis this year on the legacy continuing,”said Kim Wright, concert chair for this year’s classical concert event at the Wadsworth Auditorium.
In fact, it’s right there in the title.
“We have named the 2014 concert Friends of Wadsworth – The Legacy Continues,” said Wright.
“We want people to know that although Charles has retired, he has hand-picked Courtenay Budd, better known as Becky in her hometown of Newnan, to be his successor, to pick up the torch and carry on this legacy that is so special to the Coweta Arts Community,” she said. Budd will be hosting the concert and performing.
“She has arranged for some world-class musicians to perform this year, which include some of Newnan’s favorites; violinist Chee-Yun, cellist Edward Arron, clarinetist Todd Palmer, pianists Jeewon Park and Andrew Armstrong,” said Wright.
The Newnan Cultural Arts Commission has sponsored the Wadsworth concerts since 2005,taking over from concert originators associated with the Newnan-Coweta Historical Society and The Heritage School. Arts commission members recently announced the first “Friends of Wadsworth Concert — The Legacy Continues” will be held April 26 at 7:30 p.m.
“The Cultural Arts commission has been working diligently to make this year’s concert an event not to be missed,” said Wright. “Our team of commission members work so well together and we really enjoy being able to bring this special concert to Newnan.
“We are working on ticket sales now,” she said. General admission tickets are $20 andwill be available March 14 at Let Them Eat Toffee on the Downtown Court Square, The Downtown Visitor’s Center in the Historical Courthouse, Morgan’s Jewelers in Ashley Park and Bank of North Georgia at Thomas Crossroads.

Set against the backdrop of the Civil Rights Era, this production tells the story of Miss Daisy and her newly hired chauffeur, Hoke. Although Miss Daisy lives a life of privilege while Hoke lives the life of an African-American man in the days of Jim Crow, they discover they have much in common. This iconic tale of pride, changing times and the transformative power of friendship has warmed the hearts of millions. ------------------------------------------------------------ Founded in 1809, Walnut Street Theatre is the oldest continuously operating theatre in the United States. For more than 200 years, this venerable institution has stood the test of time to become a staple of the cultural community. Driving Miss Daisy marks Walnut Street's fourth national tour.
- Before it was discovered that Newnan resident and father of two Rob Estes had stage IV Glioblastoma, one of the most common and deadly forms of brain tumors, his only symptoms were personality/mood changes and a dull headache. Six weeks after he was diagnosed and in the midst of treatment (to date, he has undergone brain surgery, 42 doses of chemotherapy and 30 days of radiation), Estes decided to put his own troubles aside and start a nonprofit organization dedicated to helping other people who are facing adversity and personal battles.
In two weeks, Este’s nonprofit Can’t Never Could (www.cantnevercouldinc.com) will host its first fundraiser benefiting other brain cancer patients, The Piedmont Brian Tumor Center and other causes Estes supports. Event details below. His diagnosis, Estes’ wife Christi says, has taught the family perspective – to know what’s really important. She says they are happier as a family now than they have ever been and never knew she could be so happy and so sad at the same time. You can read more about Rob Estes’ story here: http://www.caringbridge.org/visit/mightytosave.
I’d love your help in sharing this inspiring patient story in an effort to raise awareness for Glioblastoma. Rob Estes’ story is just one of three that has recently come across my desk – all of which seem to have come out of nowhere. The National Cancer Institute estimates that 23,130 people were diagnosed with brain and other nervous system cancers in 2013 so this condition clearly effects more people than one might think.
