ETSU students using musical talents to help raise money for hurricane victims
The ETSU Department of Music's Student Council president Clinton Long says musicians at the school have a civic duty to help their fellow man.
That is what the department is doing on Sept.29 by hosting a benefit concert in the Brown Hall Auditorium on campus with all of the proceeds going to Samaritan's Purse for the aid of recent hurricane victims.
A variety of styles will be showcased at the event. The ETSU Chorale, Greyscale, Swashbucklers and Harmonium, jazz band are among the scheduled acts for the performance, according to the report.
"This will be a great night of music as our students share their talents with the community in hopes of receiving donations to help ease the pain of some of the people affected by nature's destruction. The event is an example of ETSU Pride. We are all coming together to help in a time of need," said Matthew Potterton, interim chair of the Dept. of Music.
The concert begins at 7:30 p.m. that evening and the suggested admission price is $10 per person.
