A benefit concert for the victims of Hurricane Maria will be held on November 18th starting at 7pm in the Zompa Auditorium at Bob Jones High School.

Michaela Philip, SGA and Chorus Vice President, organized the concert with the help of Choir director Randall Fields and choir President Natalie Tidwell.

Philip said, “We [President’s council] were all talking about ways we can help the hurricane victims – something that not a lot of people have done before that would involve different parts of our school and our community and I thought that a benefit concert would be a great way to  do that.”

Kaleidoscope, a classic rock band, and the Rocket City Jazz Orchestra, will be performing.

The tornados that came through this area in 2011, caused the death of hundreds of people and left much of Huntsville and Madison without power for over a week. Thanks to the generosity of people who lived in neighboring towns who weren’t affected as severely, we got through a very tough time and were able to get things back to normal in a relatively short time,” said James Bradas, former president of the Rocket City Jazz Orchestra. “But for people living in areas hit by the recent hurricane Maria – many are still without power months after the storm hit and will be without power and other basic necessities for months to come. It is going to take a long time and a huge effort to repair all the damage.”

100% of the proceeds will go to UNICEF Hurricane Relief Fund. Tickets are $10 and will be sold at the door.

I hope that people will come out to the concert this Saturday to enjoy the music, reflect on the quality of life we enjoy here, and give generously to people who have had much of their community completely destroyed and need all the help they can get.”

After the concert, there will be a reception in the lobby of the auditorium. Different organizations, such as National Honors Society, have donated food and drinks for the reception.

Philip said, “It’s just going to be a fun night and it’s for a great cause.”
