The concert, set for Saturday, Oct. 26, at 3 p.m. in the College’s Decker Theatre, raises awareness and funds in memory of a beloved teacher, coach, pastor and community leader in Kent County. 

Advance tickets priced at $5 are available from choir members and at several Chestertown businesses: Music Life, The Bookplate, Twigs and Teacups, and Big Mixx.  Admission at the door will cost $7. Doors will open at 2:30 p.m.
