Mar 21, 2012 No Comments by

Londonderry’s St. Mark Knights of Columbus is presenting its second concert event in a series at the Stockbridge Theatre at Pinkerton Academy in Derry on March 23, 2012 . All benefiting local charities, the evening will feature a silent auction, musical performances by locals and a few big names.

Beginning at 6:30 PM, guests are welcome to participate in the Girl Scout’s silent auction. The concert begins at 7:30 PM with a short welcome and announcements, followed by the “local” portion of the concert. First to perform for the evening will be the Ecumenical Choir. Following the choir, 16 year old Londonderry High School Sophomore Marissa Russell will perform. Russell loves music, took piano lessons for several years, taught herself guitar and ukelele, is a high honor roll student, and is a member of the school’s lacrosse, basketball and volleyball teams.

Following Russell, Rosemarie Kelley will perform. Kelley graduated from the Boston Conservatory with a major in Voice and is in her fourteenth year as a member of St. Mark’s music ministry. She is a choir member, a soloist, cantor and Children’s Choir Director. She sings regularly throughout throughout the state as a cantor and soloist at weddings and masses and also performs with the New Hampshire Academy of Performing Arts in Seabrook. The Londonderry High School Drumline will perform after Kelley.

At 8:30, a twenty minute intermission will be held where guests are welcome to participate in the silent auction. When the concert begins again, Frederico Cardella will perform. Cardella is an Italian-American vocalist who sings adult contemporary and classical music. His music is said to take you on a romantic and passionate journey.

Proceeds from the concert will benefit local charities, including the Rosemarie R. Cox Memorial Scholarship Fund supported by the Knights of Columbus. The scholarship is awarded annually to a deserving high school senior and, when finances allow, more than one student can benefit.

Tickets to the concert are $17.50 for adults and $12.50 for seniors and students. The can be purchased online here or at select local stores, including Movie Scene at Crossroads Mall in Londonderry. For more information about the concert, the performers and where to buy tickets, click here!
