In this tough economy many may think they can’t give enough money to make a significant impact on those suffering in Japan. However, by joining forces we can all play a part in instrumentally helping those in need. Intermezzo Strings, a local entertainment agency specializing in live instrumental music, is helping the global community and sending a strong message of cultural solidarity and human compassion by producing a benefit concert on Saturday, June 11 at 7:00 p.m.
“By doing what we love—making beautiful music—we hope to raise $100,000 for the Japanese Red Cross Society to help disaster victims start a new life,” said Intermezzo founder and violist Marcellus Martin. The production will feature works of late romantic composers performed by a full member orchestra and guest artists. Cal Stewart Kellog, Music Director of the Mesa Symphony Orchestra, will be the guest conductor.
Tri-City Baptist Church is hosting the concert. Two of the performers are faculty members of Tri-City’s Chandler School of Fine Arts. Tri-City is located at 2211 W Germann Rd in Chandler. Tickets will be sold at the door for $10 and additional donations can be made at the production or online at www.intermezzostrings.org.
