The Collage Chamber Series is proud to announce a collaborative project with the UNCG Association of Retired Faculty for the February 2 performance at 3:30 pm in Tew Recital Hall. The ARF is partnering with Collage Chamber to use our concert event to raise funds and food donations for the Student Emergency Fund and the UNCG Spartan Open Pantry, a critically needed food resource for students and employees of UNCG who find themselves in need of assistance. Beginning in Fall 2019, Collage Chamber Series became a free non-ticketed event. However, attendees of this concert are being asked to bring food items to donate to the Spartan Open Pantry which will be collected by members of the ARF. Information regarding what items are most needed can be found at the Spartan Open Pantry website. In addition to the food donations, attendees are also being asked to consider making cash donations to the Pantry and Emergency Fund.
We are very pleased to be able to offer the community an event which will be used to raise support for such a needed service to the campus community as the Spartan Open Pantry and Student Emergency Fund, and we hope you will join us for an hour of fantastic music as we raise funds and resources for these two excellent organizations. Our performers will the Graduate Brass Quintet, The Graduate Trio with Piano, The Oud Ensemble, and a Faculty Trio with Piano.
