2006 Local Legends

About Sarah...
She is a 15-year-old sophomore at Newberry High School. She is very involved with high school chorus, her church choir at Central United Methodist Church and often performs with the Newberry Community Players. She has taken guitar at Munson Music since she was 7 or 8. Sarah recently returned from her second summer at Governorís School for the Arts.

From a musical family, her parents (Ann & Merritt Moseley) were finalists in 2004 and her Dad was competing against her this year as a member of the band Grand Illusion. Merritt admitted that he voted for Sarah himself and was thrilled with the outcome. Her brothers (Will and Josh Moseley) were honorable mentions for this year competition.

Sarah loves all music, but describes the music she performs as "todayís country mixed with Classic and Southern rock and always a little classical too because I have some classical training." She wrote several new songs while at Governorís School and hopes to write more this year.When asked what interested her in entering, Sarah said, "Ever since I heard about Local Legends, I wanted to enter. I loved watching my Mom and Dad at the Opera House the year they were finalists, and I always wanted to perform at the Opera House [as an individual performer] just on time."

Sarah got her chance to perform at the Newberry Opera House during the 2006 Local Legends Concert on August 12. All finalists performed at the concert with extra time for this yearís winner.
