Kenai Peninsula Orchestra

KBBI

On the silhouette wall on Pioneer Avenue, there is a diminutive figure raising her hands to summon artists to action and excellence. That’s Mary Epperson: June 6, 1922 - April 11, 2016. Epperson moved to Alaska with her family in 1954. She was a homesteader, a music teacher, a founding citizen of the city of Homer, and an originator and organizer of the arts in Alaska. 

This past Saturday, June 6th, Homer Council on the Arts and organizations all over town celebrated Mary Epperson Day, established by the City of Homer in 2010.
