The Refugio Country Opry Band, voted “Best of the Best”

Ali Coscetti is a young, up-and-coming local singer from Refugio and is a popular attraction in the area. She sings at many special events and performs on the Opry show circuit. Ali has been on the Refugio Country Opry many times.

“Come see her, you’ll really enjoy her talent,” said Neal Hartig, organizer.

Arnold Parker of Victoria has been singing and picking for a lot of years. Arnold does most of the area Opry shows and is a regular guest on the Refugio Country Opry.

“Arnold sings from the heart, you’ll enjoy this man,” Haertig said.

Ray Goodwin, also of Victoria, is a professor at the college.

“Ray is pretty much an expert when it comes to knowing about each song that he sings,” Haertig said. “We’ve had Ray on the Country Opry many times in the past. Ray gets into each song he sings.”

Paul Shaw of Arkansas sang in the chapel at The Great Passion Play in Eureka Springs.

“The man has a fantastic voice, you’ll want to hear him,” Haertig said.

The Fierova family provides an excellent food court, and like the Opry, all their net proceeds go toward a scholarship fund for graduating seniors.

“Come early and eat with us,” Haertig said. “We need the support of our local people. Come help us provide much needed scholarships for your children and grandchildren. Please come out and support the Opry, it’s a lot of show for $5.
