2:00 – 3:00 p.m. If Music Be the Food… Concert
If Music Be the Food… Gettysburg
“If Music Be the Food…” is a series of benefit concerts whose mission is to raise awareness and support for the hungry in the local community through the sharing of great music, and to teach music students about the importance of utilizing their art for service. All participants in every aspect of the endeavor volunteer their services and pay their own costs, so all proceeds can go directly to the hungry. No tickets will be sold for the concert; rather, audience members are invited to contribute monetary donations or non-perishable food items to the Gettysburg Community Soup Kitchen.
Please join us for music, fellowship, food, and fun as we celebrate the 25th Anniversary of the Adams County Arts Council. For more information, contact Lisa Cadigan at firstname.lastname@example.org, Adam Paul Cordle at email@example.com, call the ACAC at (717) 334-5006, or visit www.adamsarts.org.
