Twelve High Notes - A benefit for the Interfaith Shelter Network

Monday, March 26, 2012, 7:30 pm
Crill Performance Hall - Cooper Music Center

Musicians from the San Diego Symphony will be joined by Point Loma Nazarene University Music Department Chair Dr. Paul Kenyon as well as local jazz artists Joshua White and Ellen Weller to perform a benefit concert for Interfaith Shelter Network on Monday, March 26, at 7:30 p.m. This second annual “High Notes” concert will take place at Point Loma Nazarene University’s Crill Performance Hall and will feature classical chamber music for winds and strings, solo piano works, and jazz duos.


All concert proceeds will go to support the Interfaith Shelter Network of San Diego, now in its 26th year of providing shelter and other services to homeless individuals and families and transitional housing for homeless battered women with children. Shelter sites are located at 65 participating congregations countywide, with community agencies providing case management. El Nido, the transitional housing program, is located in the city of San Diego but accepts referrals from all over the San Diego region.

The concert program is being organized by San Diego Symphony Principal Bassist Jeremy Kurtz-Harris, who headlined the first “High Notes” concert last Spring.   "Making music is a very community-oriented process,” says Kurtz-Harris.  “Collaborating with other musicians and sharing the result with an audience can bring people together in a very unique, meaningful way, and this concert is especially important for all of us involved as it also helps to provide support for an organization here in San Diego that is doing incredibly important work.”


 The suggested “High Notes” concert donation is $25 per person ($10 for students). Crill Performance Hall is located on the campus of Point Loma University. Free parking is available. Tickets will be available at the door. To learn more about Interfaith Shelter Network, go to or call 619.702.5399.
