Denning, Enwright featured in 1st Sunday Sing

Young talents in music and creative writing, Jessie Denning and McClain Enwright, will be featured at First Sunday Sing on March 6 at 3 p.m. at Flourishes Gallery and Studios at 140 ½ E. Main, Shelbyville.

Jessie Denning, seventeen and finishing her junior year, is not a new name for those who follow music or drama at Shelbyville High School. On this Sunday, she sings solo with the music of her choice. She is multi-talented in the arts and says, “I love to be a storyteller and I always have been. When I was little, my parents and brothers would go on walks and take me in the stroller. During the walks, I would tell stories. I would make up whatever I want, and just kept talking about these silly, wild things. If I wasn’t telling the stories, then I’d be listening to them from my siblings, parents, or any other way I could. As I’ve grown up, I have fallen in love with the performance side of storytelling. I love dancing, playing instruments, singing, and especially acting. I was in shows at the Little Theatre on the Square for seven years, taing classes even earlier. These were wonderful experiences for me.”

John Maclean Enright, 16 years old and very talented in writing, will read to attendees. He writes science fiction, Doctor Who in particular. His science fiction based writing commonly uses emotions and/or analysis of thought and personality for the reader or listener to relate to characters and situations. Maclean also likes reading, writing, running, swimming at the pool and studying history and the workings of personalities and minds of people of the past and present. The public is welcome to meet and hear Maclean as well as some music and drama starting at 3 p.m. at 140 ½ E. Main in downtown Shelbyville.

First Sunday Sing is free and open to the public with an opportunity to talk with those featured talents. Please come and join and support the local talent.
