COLLEGE TO HOST "MUSIC FOR MEALS" CONCERT ON MARCH 10

3/3/2009

SUNY Orange Students to Combine with Students from the New York School of Music

MIDDLETOWN, N.Y. – SUNY Orange, in conjunction with the New York School of Music, will host its first “Music for Meals” concert at 6 p.m., Tuesday, March 10 in historic Morrison Hall on the College’s Middletown campus.

Students from the College and the New York School of Music, in addition to invited guests from the community, will perform a variety of musical selections. Admission is $1 with all proceeds to be given to the Food Bank of the Hudson Valley. Non-perishable food donations will also be accepted. For every dollar it receives, the Food Bank is able to provide between $10 and $12 of food to hungry residents in the community. The Food Bank serves more than 360 feeding programs in six counties. Last year, the Food Bank distributed more than seven million pounds of food in the Hudson Valley.

SUNY Orange students Kelsey Byrne and Carlton Jay will represent the College and will perform “Body and Soul” from “Frim Fram Sauce.” In addition, the college students will assist and mentor the students from the music school.

The College anticipates conducting “Meals for Music” concerts periodically throughout the year to support the Food Bank. In addition, SUNY Orange students who make a non-perishable food donation at the College Library during the Spring semester will have their late fees waived.
