A gala concert will be held to benefit the summer program at Pigeon Community Multi-Cultural Development Center at 7 p.m. May 25 at Grace Episcopal Church’s Thatcher Parish Hall in Waynesville.
The concert will feature four performance groups, including Signature Winds of Haywood County, a woodwind quintet that plays a variety of music; Becky Mendoza, a vocalist from Canton who will do a selection of Latino songs and cover songs by Selena; The Men of Liberty, an African American men’s choir that performs gospel and other a capella arrangements; and The Frog Level Philharmonic, a Dixieland jazz band.
Admission will be $10 for adults and children will be admitted for free. Tickets are available at the Grace Church Office.
The summer program actively involves children in learning and recreational experiences. In addition to reading and tutoring, the program includes field trips, special events, food, and computer support.
