    JACKSONVILLE — South Stage Cellars will honor its late tasting room manager Porscha Schiller with six hours of music Sunday afternoon.

    Schiller, who had overseen the historic tasting room at 125 S. Third St., for eight years, died from cancer this past winter.

    Schiller was a friend of the local arts, originating a Rising Stars series that raised money for CASA, La Clinica and Live Art. She also promoted revolving art displays.

    The tasting room has been remodeled and the revamped surrounding garden was named in Schiller’s memory.

    Jacksonville Inn donated finger food for the event, and C Street Bistro will sell barbecue sandwiches. Glasses of red wine will sell for $7, and white wine is priced at $5.

    The event will run from 1 to 7 p.m.

    An assortment of soloists, duos and a trio will perform during the first two hours, followed by Adam Gabriel and Nathan Comer, who will take the stage at 3 p.m., followed by Blender, L.E.F.T., the Rogue Suspects, and Gene Black & the Pack.
