Citing the troubled economy and a disappointing turnout last year, the arts center is putting the event on hiatus so it can plan its 50th anniversary festival for 2010.

Instead, the center will hold a benefit concert on June 7 to support its Rising Young Artist Scholarship Fund. The fund helps pay tuition for about 25 percent of the students who attend its summer camp.
Nearly a dozen musicians are donating their time for the concert, said Timmons, including Livingston Taylor, John Gorka, Vance Gilbert, The Kennedys and Grey Eye Glances.
