New Haven, CT – In the wake of last month’s devastating earthquake in Haiti, the campus community of Southern Connecticut State University is rallying together to support the relief effort. As a part of this large-scale effort, the SCSU Music Department and honor-service society Zeta Delta Epsilon will present a benefit concert for Haitian relief as part of the campus commitment to “365 days of Haiti relief.”
The March 3 concert features student performers and Southern ensembles, including the Jazz Standards Ensemble, University Choir, Blues Ensemble and Latin Jazz Ensemble. The program will begin at 7 p.m. in Garner Recital Hall (Engleman C-112) and continue for several hours.
Members of the general public are invited to drop in at any time to make a donation and listen to the SCSU ensembles. Suggested donation is $5 for students and $10 for faculty, staff and general public. Refreshments and T-shirts will be available at the event as well. All proceeds from the event will be added to the campus fund for Haitian relief set up by The Office of Student Life.
The SCSU Haiti Relief Committee will continue to organize fundraisers on Southern’s campus to address the humanitarian needs of the country. Zeta Delta Epsilon strives to advance the spirit of service and fellowship and promote and recognize scholarship and service within the student body. The honor-service society is just one of many campus organizations working to provide aid to Haiti.
