Music Authority’s spring concert benefitting CASA of Forsyth County
$15 or $12 with a donation of office supplies The Warehouse, 5059 Post Road 7 tonight
A music store is holding a fundraiser concert tonight.
Melissa Loggins of the Music Authority said the event will feature a number of the store’s students and their instructors.
Tickets to the event, which begins at 7 p.m. at the Warehouse on Post Road, are $15. But patrons can receive a $3 discount if they bring a donation of office supplies for Court Appointed Special Advocates, or CASA, of Forsyth County.
The nonprofit organization provides court advocates for children involved in abuse and neglect cases.
Loggins said this will be the ninth concert Music Authority has held in support of local charities. Some of the past beneficiaries have included Abba House, the Humane Society and YMCA holiday gift drives.
"This year, we’re asking people to bring items like pencils, pens, paper or binders, anything for the office," she said.
The concert will last about 90 minutes and feature contemporary music.
"We do these concerts two times a year, in the fall and the spring," Loggins said. "The fall concert is our classical concert, and the spring one is more of a rock ‘n’ roll concert.
"It’ll feature our jazz band, a lot of guitars, drums, bass and some pianists and vocalists."
She added that the musical selections will include many from films, television and video games.
Loggins said anyone attending the concert is in for a treat.
"Just because these are students doesn’t mean it’s not a top-notch show," she said. "It’s like the big game for these students, who spend six months preparing for the show.
"This is not a talent show. You would think they are all professional musicians if you didn’t know they were students."
