The concert will benefit the son of a friend of one of our hiking members who passed away from breast cancer on Saturday, 12/7/13. Amy was a 33 year-old single mother - Her son, Ethan, is five. When Terri, our hiking member, and friends originally scheduled the concert, it was intended for Amy's expenses. However, she went downhill very fast and so the concert will hopefully be the start of a college fund for Ethan. As you might imagine, Terri is still working on the details on that - everything happened so fast.
Terri, is a professional opera singer and she is doing a benefit concert "From Broadway to Boheme
" with a baritone named Kenneth Overton. It will feature hits from opera and music theatre, as well as selections from Kenneth's new CD. We know it isn't hiking, but a bunch of hikers have always said, "Let me know when you are singing" to Terri, so here we are.
Anyway, here are the details:
