The Phinney Neighborhood Community Chorus presents its annual concert to benefit the George Marcellus School in Haiti at 7 p.m. Saturday, June 20, at Phinney Ridge Lutheran Church, 7500 Greenwood Ave. N.
The chorus will sing a program of mostly a cappella modern and not-so-modern folk music from around the world, including Haiti, South Africa, Sweden, the Republic of Georgia and southern France. The chorus’s mission is to “sing local, act global.”
We sing for free, on behalf of the George Marcellus School in one of the poorest areas of rural Haiti. Donations are much appreciated. We hope to raise the entire $6,500 budget that the school needs for teacher salaries and providing each student one meal a day. 100% of funds raised will go to the school through the Mona Foundation, a Kirkland-based non-profit 501(c)3 that supports universal education.
Refreshments will be served.
Please join us for a fun evening of good singing in a good cause.
