Following a series of events to raise funds to help the victims of the earthquake that struck Haiti Jan. 12, Lawrence University presented the “Friends of Haiti Benefit Concert” Feb. 6 in the Memorial Chapel. The concert opened with the Haitian national anthem. Lawrence orchestra and choir students, Fox Valley Technical College students, Haitian musicians, and members of the Lawrence faculty all performed in the concert. Other performances included music by Haitian composers such as John Jost and Sydney Guillaume. Images of Haiti before and after the earthquake were projected onstage throughout the concert, focusing in particular on pictures of the Holy Trinity Music School, where more than 40 Lawrence students and faculty have taught since 1996. In addition, Lawrence students Carolyn Armstrong and Stephen Anunson presented footage of the documentary they filmed in Haiti last December on the impact of music on developing countries. Guest conductors came from Ohio University in Athens, Oh., Bradley University in Peoria, Ill. and Sacred Heart University in Fairfield, Conn. Singers from the Milwaukee Choral Artists also joined the concert. Additionally, a silent auction was held in the lobby of Memorial Chapel, featuring art by Lawrence University students and photography by John Marquis Cahill throughout the performances.
