Baylor School will present the 13th annual Midwinter Night’s Blast concert featuring the Nighthawks, a group of faculty and student musicians, on Tuesday and Wednesday, both at 7 p.m. in the Roddy Theatre.
Students can purchase tickets outside of the dining hall for $5 in advance or $10 at the door. (Note: parents are welcome to purchase tickets outside of the dining hall or just ask your student to pick one up for you and other family members).
This year’s group features students Lucie Choi, Katrin Arango, Margie Hussey, Amelia Moore, Alison Qu, and Darby Schumacher; and faculty members Bernard Fertal, Takisha Haynie, John Lecce Kenneth Parks, and Pete Robinson. Local drummer Burnard Tate is also joining the group.
All proceeds from the event help fund Baylor's community service grant writing program, which enhances the afternoon learning experience for area children at various tutoring sites. Previous grants have provided classes in drama, astronomy, music, computer, Spanish, cultural understanding, African American history, and literacy and writing. The grants are written by Baylor students, and the programs are organized and managed by those students once they are approved and funded.
