Fox Music House Receives Elizabeth O’Neill Verner Award
Fox Music House of Charleston, South Carolina has been named a recipient of the 2013 Elizabeth O’Neill Verner Governor’s Awards for the Arts, the highest honor the state presents in the arts.
The annual awards have been presented by the South Carolina Arts Commission Board since 1972, and recognize outstanding achievement and contributions to the arts in South Carolina. Fox Music House, which was the sole award recipient under the “business” award category, was among only eight individuals and organizations across the state presented with this year’s award.
“Again this year we have an outstanding, diverse group of Verner Award winners,” said S.C. Arts Commission Board chairman Dr. Sarah Lynn Hayes. “These exceptional individuals and organizations illustrate the true depth of the arts community in our state. We are grateful for their passion, their contributions and their commitment to serving as ambassadors and standard-bearers for the arts. They are certainly worthy of this highest honor.”
Awards will be presented at a Statehouse ceremony tentatively scheduled for Thursday, May 2. The S.C. Arts Foundation will honor the recipients and the arts community at the South Carolina Arts Gala on Wednesday, May 1. The gala is a fundraiser supporting the programs of the S.C. Arts Commission.
