The Kaneland Performing Arts Boosters is pleased to announce the second annual Knight of Performances barbecue dinner, scheduled for Sunday, March 2, from 2 to 5 p.m. at Kaneland Harter Middle School, located at 1601 Esker Drive in Sugar Grove.

A variety of talented student musicians and performers from both Kaneland High School (KHS) and Harter Middle School (HMS) will be on hand to provide our entertainment for the afternoon, including students who are either performing a vocal or instrumental solo or ensemble, HMS Mid-Knight Special, HMS Jazz Band, KHS jazz combos and cast members from this spring’s KHS musical, “The Drowsy Chaperone.”

The afternoon will also include a basket raffle and pork chop or chicken dinner from 5B’s Catering in Waterman, Ill. All 5B’s dinners include baked beans, coleslaw, applesauce, dinner roll and choice of homemade dessert. Hot dog meals come with a hot dog, chips (or a dinner side), and dessert. Starbucks coffee and bottled water will be provided. Soft drinks will be available for purchase. Dinner will be served until 4:30 p.m. Carry-out meals can be purchased this year. Order forms are due by Wednesday, Feb. 19.

The Knight of Performances Committee has secured many wonderful items for the basket raffle such as tickets to see “Rent” at the Paramount Theatre in Aurora; an autographed copy of “Critical Mass” by Sara Paretsky; Elgin Symphony Orchestra tickets; many local restaurant and business gift certificates; music lessons; Thirty-One merchandise; hand-crafted jewelry and more. In addition, one lucky Kaneland High School student can win a free, reserved parking spot for the 2014-15 school year. All money raised at this event will directly benefit the students involved in the band, choir and theatre programs at KHS and HMS.
