The pairing of the acclaimed choir and the New Mt. Hermon church for this concert will not only help raise money for its scholarship fund, but will also present positive role models for the students. They will have the chance to speak with college students they can relate to and gain insight about educational opportunities.

All ticket proceeds received for the event will be donated to the scholarship fund and ultimately awarded to five lucky students that night.
