Pianist Lisa Lanza brings together the cream of Port Townsend’s young musicians and some of their equally talented elders to perform for the benefit of Ugandan AIDs orphans. This year Grace Lutheran Church is joined by 1st Presbyterian Church in sponsoring this historically sold-out event. The concert will take place on Sunday, May 22, 2022, at 4 PM at the 1st Presbyterian Church, 1111 Franklin Street, Port Townsend.

The concert offers a variety of instrumental music which will include the Grand Tango for Cello and Piano by Astor Piazzolla performed by Pamela Roberts and Lisa Lanza; Fantasy on Themes from the Wizard of Oz for Piano – Four Hands, by William Hirtz performed by Michael Carroll and Lisa Lanza; Cello Duet performed by Gwen Franz and Pamela Roberts; A Haydn Piano Trio performed by Kristin Smith, Gwen Franz and Lisa Lanza; Jazz Suite by Stephan Jackman performed by Otto Smith on English Concertina.

Student performers include Tusker Behrenfeld, viola; Maria Powell, saxophone; Cora Brinton, violin; Annabelle Moore, violin; Elijah Hill, piano; Akeyla Behrenfeld, cello; and William Heigel, cello.

The concert supports 28 AIDs orphans sponsored by Grace Lutheran Church, who are totally dependent on the generosity of Port Townsend area residents to support their education. A $15 – $20 donation, cash or check, is suggested. Doors open at 3:30 PM. 1st Presbyterian Church is located at 1111 Franklin Street, Port Townsend, WA.
