Virtual Hunger Concert to raise money for local food pantry
Because of the pandemic, the need for food assistance has increased dramatically. With this in mind, the music students at Salve Regina will present their annual concert for hunger relief virtually on Friday, March 12, at 7:00 p.m. To attend this event via Zoom, go here.
The Hunger Concert has been an annual event of the Department of Music, Theatre and Dance for over thirty years. The concert has provided Salve Regina students and their families with an opportunity to come together to help in the relief of hunger, and the importance is this cannot be understated with so many families struggling during a pandemic.
The program will mostly be made up of individual performances, but several of the University’s ensembles will also be featured — including Madrigals, University Chorus, A Cappella groups and Jazz Combo. The program will feature talented students in a variety of music styles, including both popular and classical songs, folk songs, Jazz standards and more.
Beyond treating listeners to a fun night of fine performances, the concert hopes to inspires concert attendees to donate to community food assistance. A link to donate to the food pantry at the Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Community Center will be provided at the time of the concert.
“Through monetary donations to a local food pantry, we hope to support efforts that are making a difference in our community,” said Dr. Don St. Jean, associate professor of music and the choral director. “Year after year, family and friends of the performers are so impressed by the number of talented students we have here at Salve. I suspect that this performance will be even more impressive.”
