SSU concert to raise money for REFB 
Bookmark and Share

Sonoma State University Director of Choral Activities, Jenny Bent, is teaching her students about more than singing. They are learning about using the power of music as a catalyst to give back to the community.

On Sunday, Oct. 21, at 4 p.m., the SSU Symphonic Chorus and Chamber Singers will present Songs of Peace and Thanksgiving, a gala concert and reception in Weill Hall to benefit the Redwood Empire Food Bank.

A regional honor choir of high school singers will bring the size of the combined choruses to more than 120 singers.

The program selections reflect a bountiful theme, including Aaron Copland’s “The Tender Land,” and “Ubi Caratas” (Where Charity and Love Are) by Norwegian composer Ola Gjeilo.

A food drive organized by choir members is currently under way in the Green Music Center education building. People can drop off canned goods at GMC 1028.

For more information, contact Kathleen Barnes at (805) 791-5659 or e-mail

Tickets are $15 general, $12 SSU faculty, alumni and staff and $10 for seniors and students. SSU students are admitted free with ID.
