B'ville: 'Singing Together for Haiti'

Musical performers from across Central New York will bring their talent to First United Methodist Church in Baldwinsville for "Singing Together for Haiti," a benefit for Haitian earthquake survivors.

Slated for 2:30 p.m. March 14, the concert will include well-known local singers Tom Anzalone, Rebecca Horning, Nancy James, Elisabeth Kisselstein and Jim Shults. They are affiliated with Syracuse Opera Chorus and the music department faculties at Syracuse University and the State University of New York at Oswego.

Members of the adult choirs from Baldwinsville First United Methodist Church and Fairmount Community Church will also perform. Numerous photographs from the devastated region in Haiti will be shown on a large screen.

Monetary donations and supplies brought to the church will go directly to KONPAY, an American-Haitian not-for-profit organization that works at the ground level with earthquake survivors. Among the most urgent needs are hammers, nails, rope, tents, toothpaste, toothbrushes, feminine hygiene products, soap, deodorant, crutches and solar rechargeable lamps and flashlights. Heirloom seeds, which are seeds that reproduce, are also needed.

The church is at 17 W. Genesee St. in the village of Baldwinsville. Suggested donation for the concert is $10. Visit KONPAY.org for more information about the organization. For questions about the benefit, contact elisabeth.kisselstein@gmail.com or call her at 450-2894.
