Saint Martin's University to present Hope Concert

April 11, 2006

Lacey – The Saint Martin’s University department of music will present the Hope concert on April 21, 7:30 p.m., at the Saint Martin’s Pavilion, 5300 Pacific Ave. S.E., Lacey.

The 50-voice Saint Martin’s University Chorale, and student solo and duet singers will perform a variety music: gospel, musical theater, pop, and original compositions, and singers will be accompanied by a band. Tying in the music with the Hope theme is a multi-media presentation featuring original artwork by Brother Luke Devine, O.S.B., of Saint Martin’s Abbey. Guest performer for the evening is Dame Ima Ditts.

Admission is free; donations will be accepted. Donations will benefit Saint Martin’s campus ministry. The funds raised will help 17 Saint Martin’s University students, one faculty member and two staff, travel to Birmingham, Alabama, in May to build a home for Habitat for Humanity. They will work on the house for one week. Students have been raising funds for this community service trip since fall.
