Concerts4aCause: 'Love Song to American Traditions' to benefit Community Action Network
Attending a concert Sunday could lead to a 14-passenger van for the Community Action Network. It's true. The Northside Community Church's Concerts4aCause will benefit CAN so that they can buy a gently-used van to "transport children and parents to school events, and for field trips during afterschool programs and summer camps," according to the press release.
The concert's theme is "Love Song to American Traditions" and will feature works by Leonard Bernstein, Charles Ives, African American and Puerto Rican composers and jazz artists. Performers include tenor and U-M emeritus professor, George Shirley; Detroit Symphony Orchestra clarinetist, Shannon Orme; pianists Xavier Suarez and Concerts4aCause director, Kathryn Goodson; and students from the U-M Black Arts Council and local high schools.
CAN is an Ann Arbor-based nonprofit that partners with Washtenaw County children and families from under-resourced neighborhoods in order to carve out a better future for themselves and improve their communities.
The concert itself is free, but donations will be taken before and after the event. There will be an on-site reception after the concert.
Sunday, February 17, 2013. 7 p.m. Free. Donations accepted. The Northside Community Church is located at 929 Barton Dr., Ann Arbor. 734-662-6351.
