Music Feeds Us announces 2016 Chamber Music Concerts

  • Saturday, May 14, 7:30 PM, Trinity Episcopal Church, Staunton
  • Sunday, May 15, 3:30 PM, Westminster Presbyterian Church, Charlottesville, with The Virginia Consort, a chamber chorus, joining the quartet as a special guest

newspaperThe concert program features works by Haydn, Schumann and Hanza El Din. The concerts are free; however, all monetary donations and gifts of food are gratefully accepted for the Blue Ridge Area Food Bank.

Music Feeds Us, as part of their educational outreach program, will also perform at Tye and Woodbrook Elementary Schools, and Charlottesville High School as they continue to introduce classical music and stringed instruments to students.

Celebrating their fifth anniversary season, Music Feeds Us has provided over 82,000 meals for the Blue Ridge Area Food Bank. The 2016 goal is to exceed a cumulative 100,000 meals. To reach this goal they need to raise $4500 at their benefit concerts.

One in six children in the Blue Ridge area struggles with hunger. Every $1 donation will provide four nourishing meals for our neighbors in need. Music Feeds Us thanks you in advance for your attendance, generosity and your donations!

Augusta Free Press content is available for free, as it has been since 2002, save for a disastrous one-month experiment at putting some content behind a pay wall back in 2009. (We won’t ever try that again. Almost killed us!) That said, it’s free to read, but it still costs us money to produce. The site is updated several times a day, every day, 365 days a year, 366 days on the leap year. (Stuff still happens on Christmas Day, is what we’re saying there.) AFP does well in drawing advertisers, but who couldn’t use an additional source of revenue? From time to time, readers ask us how they can support us, and we usually say, keep reading. Now we’re saying, you can drop us a few bucks, if you’re so inclined.
