Attend Musical Performance to Support Afghan Refugees

Attend a Musical Performance  to benefit Afghan refugees on Saturday, Nov. 13 from 4:30 p.m. to 6:30 p.m. At St. Mark’s Church (Third and A Streets SE).

Performer Lynn Veronneau creates a “jazzy,” “global,” “original” experience of music accompanied by her husband, guitarist Ken Avis, and Dave Kline on violin.  The Washington Post called their music an “acoustic, multilingual, world-jazz sound…..inspiring and joyful,”

In September, Veronneau reopened Georgetown club Blues Alley. You can learn more about the music of Veronneau by visiting www.veronneaumusic.com.

This extraordinary Saturday afternoon event in our own neighborhood will be helping Afghan refugees with resettlement. The suggested donation of $20 per person and $30 per family will assist Good Neighbors Capitol Hill, a coalition of 8 Capitol Hill congregations and others in their works to resettle Afghan refugees.

Tickets can be paid for at the door with cash, credit cards and checks. (Check should be written to Lutheran Church of the Reformation with GNCH designated on the memo line)

Proof of vaccination is required, and masks must be worn during the concert.  For questions, contact Leslie Allen at lacaphill@gmail.com.

The print version of this event notice gave the wrong date for the performance. The event takes place Nov. 13. The Hill Rag very much regrets the error.
