SAA Graduates to Perform Benefit Concert for Families of Charleston Shooting Victims

A group of Savannah Arts Academy graduates will use the power of music to raise money for the families of the Charleston shooting victims.

A dozen former students have planned a special benefit concert for those affected by the shooting that took place nearly two months ago at Emmanuel African Methodist Episcopal Church.

On June 17, 2015, nine people were shot and killed during a prayer meeting at the historic “Mother Emanuel”- including South Carolina Senator and senior pastor, Clementa Pinckney.

The program will contain sacred renaissance music of the 1500s- including William Byrd’s “Mass for Four Voices” and motets by English composers Thomas Tallis and Thomas Weelkes.

The concert will take place Tuesday, August 11, 7:30 pm at Wesley Monumental United Methodist Church. Admission is a minimum $7 donation, $5 with a student I.D.
