On Sunday, November 14, the Music Conservatory of Sandpoint (MCS) will once again present its annual Fall Serenade to benefit student scholarships.
This year, the event promises to be the most unique serenade—A House Concert that will include performances throughout the conservatory’s venue, located at 110 Main Street in Sandpoint. Here, guests will be treated to the extraordinary talent of MCS’s music teachers from 3 to 5pm.
“At the serenade, our instructors will perform works by the great masters in support of all our tuition assistance scholarship programs,” shares Kathi Samuels, board president for MSC.
Not only will proceeds benefit the youth of the community who wish to learn to play an instrument or fine tune their singing abilities, but the event will include a raffle featuring prizes donated by Sandpoint’s local businesses, as well as a delicious bake sale. Funds raised from the raffle and bake sale will also go to support student scholarships.
There is an increased need for scholarships among the youth in our community to help make their goals a reality, explains Kathi. “It takes years to get ready for the big stage, and we mentor students from beginners to pre-college music majors.
Tickets to attend the event are priced $25 for adults and $15 for students.
“It’s our annual Fall Serenade, and we hope music-lovers will come and celebrate our cause!” she smiles.
