Money raised for Red Cross at concerts

In a time of national grief following the terrorist attacks on Sept. 11, music has been a way for many people to heal and to offer support to one another. On Oct. 7, the day America officially began it’s military campaign in Afghanistan, the Conservatory of Music put on “A Concert of Healing and Remembrance.” The free concert raised $1,000 through voluntary donations for the American Red Cross Relief Effort.

Another fundraiser was the selling of red, white, and blue ribbons by Lawrence United at the Wynton Marsalis-Lincoln Center Jazz Orchestra concert on Oct. 9. Lawrence United is an organization made up of members of several fraternities, sororities and other groups.
