Chamber Singers Help Hundred Nights

From Sandra Howard, Music:

The Keene State College Department of Music is delighted to announce the start of a community partnership program between the KSC Chamber Singers and local organizations. Each semester, the ensemble will work with a local organization to promote awareness, donate a portion of concert proceeds, and perform off campus at each organization.

During the fall 2011 semester, the Chamber Singers are partnering with the Hundred Nights homeless shelter in Keene, which was founded by KSC alum Don Primrose. For details about the shelter, see Keene State Today or the shelter’s website.

Last month, members of the Chamber Singers toured the shelter and were introduced to the mission of the organization by Deb Chambers. The singers will prepare a repertoire based on the theme of songs from sunlight to twilight throughout the semester and present a campus concert on Sunday, December 3 at 3 p.m. in the Redfern Art Center’s Alumni Recital Hall. Tickets are $5 for students and senior citizens and $10 for adults. The Department of Music will donate twenty percent of the ticket sales to Hundred Nights shelter, along with sponsoring a food drive at the concert event. The singers will then travel to the Hundred Nights shelter to present an outreach performance on Thursday, December 8 at 12:30 p.m.
