Band to offer charity performance

December 3, 2008

The McLouth High School Blues Orchestra (aka rock band) will perform a charity benefit concert at 7 p.m. Monday, December 15 in the MHS auditorium. Proceeds from this concert will go to the McLouth Ministerial Alliance assistance fund, which helps families in the community who are in crisis. The group is asking for a goodwill donation. There is no minimum admission charge. The group will perform several songs from its October concert, as well as some new covered material from classic rock and roll artists.

Some Christmas arrangements will also be heard to tie in with the holiday theme. “We thought this would also be a great way to kick off finals week at the high school,” said director/guitarist Michael Brandel.

The McLouth Ministerial Alliance assistance fund provides vouchers for groceries and gasoline to families in the McLouth community who are in crisis.

The MHS Blues Orchestra is a rock-based ensemble that is a part of the elective curriculum at McLouth High School.
