Three North Carolina musical ensembles including the Cary Town Band, the Triangle Community Orchestra, and the Kirk Chancel Choir will present a concert entitled “Handel to Roger & Hammerstein”, part of the Concerts for a Cause series, for the benefit of WCPE FM The Classical Station.

All proceeds collected at the concert will be donated to WCPE FM. The monies raised at the concert will be evenly shared between the station’s operating expenses and the WCPE Education Fund.

"The musicians of Triangle Community Orchestra look forward to their collaboration with Kirk of Kildaire and Cary Town Band musicians, as we prepare another ‘Concert for a Cause,’” said Marta Findlay-Partridge, conductor of the Triangle Community Orchestra. “WCPE has long been a source of inspiration to us as we have traveled the amazing journey from aspiring musician to active performer." Ms. Partridge will be joined by conductor Stuart Holoman of the Cary Town Band and Larry Abernathy, director of the Kirk Chancel Choir. Featured selections include a tribute to “The Sound of Music”, Mozart’s Requiem, and more.
