LSC-Montgomery will continue the tradition of donating all proceeds from their annual holiday benefit concert, held on Friday, December 5, to Interfaith of the Woodlands.
Montgomery in giving back to the community during the annual holiday benefit concert on Thursday, December 4, at 7:30 p.m., in the Performing Arts Center (building D).
The concert will feature traditional carols, familiar tunes, and upbeat holiday favorites performed by the college’s choirs, jazz ensemble, and symphony orchestra, under the direction of LSC-Montgomery music professors Dr. Eiki Isomura, Cristina Mendoza, and Dr. Mark Marotto.
All ticket proceeds will be donated to Interfaith of The Woodlands, a faith-based organization that brings people together to build a more loving and caring community through service.
“The organization plays such an important role in bringing aid to our local community,” said Marotto, who also serves as the director of choral activities at LSC-Montgomery. “It’s a pleasure to partner with them once again for our annual holiday concert."
This is the ninth year that holiday concert proceeds have been donated to a local non-profit organization, and the sixth year that LSC-Montgomery has partnered with Interfaith of The Woodlands.
“Interfaith of the Woodlands is delighted and honored to be the recipient of the proceeds from the holiday choir concert,” said Dr. Ann Snyder, CEO and president of Interfaith of The Woodlands. “We appreciate the decade long partnership of support shown to our community by LSC-Montgomery as we continue to serve our families in need this holiday season.”
According to Snyder, Interfaith of the Woodlands is an “incubator” for the community’s social services and congregations, serving as a resource hub for the entire community. The organization works with member congregations, corporations, local businesses, individuals, non-profits and community organizations in order to make a difference in as many lives as possible.
Interfaith of the Woodlands helps individuals in crisis through financial assistance for rent, mortgage, utilities, gasoline, prescription drug assistance, emergency shelter, food, counseling, job training, senior programs and child care.
In 2005, the college began offering on-campus child care services for its students, and Interfaith of the Woodlands operates and manages that child care center.
Tickets for the holiday concert cost $10 for general admission and $5 for LSC-Montgomery faculty, staff, and students. Additional donations will be accepted.
