The Sumner Songbirds program is a look at the music of Sumner County TN while learning about architectural design. Participants will be creating a sketch and then a model for a concept for a memorial to the music of Sumner County.

The program begins with a video with Trish Fitzgerald discussing her husband, Ernie Fitzgerald, who was a builder who went blind, but still managed to built Conway Twitty’s home and Twitty City.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3KfK7XUxfJo

On Saturday, the participants took the next step as Barry Young shared information on the musicians of Sumner County.https://youtu.be/AROgCA3uUzM
