SRU MUSIC DEPARTMENT ORGANIZING ‘A GIFT OF THANKSGIVING’

TO AID LOCAL CHARITIES, FOOD CUPBOARD AND SCHOLARSHIPS

          SLIPPERY ROCK, Pa. – “A Gift in Thanksgiving,” a special program organized by the University’s music department, will offer music and words at the Butler Intermediate High School at 4 p.m. Nov. 24 to benefit Butler area charities and the University’s Music Scholarship Fund.

          In addition to performances by SRU’s Chamber Singers, University Choir, Brass Ensemble, Jazz Ensemble and Wind Ensemble, there will be recitations by Pennsylvania State Rep. Dick Stevenson, Margaret De Mucci, a member of the Slippery Rock University Foundation, Inc., board of directors, Rev. Barry Keurulainen of St. Luke Lutheran Church, Cabot, and Rabbi Sheldon Clarke of New Castle. Dave Malarky of WISR-Radio will serve as master of ceremonies.

          Organizer Steve Hawk, associate professor of music, says the event was inspired by community response to last year’s services and programs following 9-11.

          Tickets are $10 for the general public and $5 for students. Tickets are available at the Gallery 164 Bookstore in Slippery Rock, May's Music in Butler and St. Luke Lutheran Church in Cabot. Those attending are also asked to bring a non-perishable food item to benefit the local food cupboard.
