A special evening concert will be held at 7 p.m. on Friday, May 27, at Grace Episcopal Church in Waynesville.
The event will be held as a fundraiser for the children’s summer program at Pigeon Community Multi-Cultural Development Center. The Pigeon Center was able to operate the summer program for children in the past with a grant which is no longer available.
Performers will include William Staley, pastor of Jones Temple AME Zion Church who specializes in gospel music.
Becky Mendez will be presenting Latino selections, including some of the music of Selena. The evening will be opened by The Signature Winds, who will perform some traditional spirituals as well as music from Africa and Mexico. Rounding out the program will be The Frog Level Philharmonic, offering spirited renditions of Dixieland classics.
