Five alumni will perform a chamber music concert at UMBC this month to benefit a Baltimore program that provides music lessons to inner-city youth.

The show, to be held in the UMBC Fine Arts Recital Hall on July 28 at 3:30 p.m., will feature the following alumni musicians as they take on works by Haydn, Schoenfield and Dvořák: music majors Rachele Sills ’07, Erin Terwilliger ’09, Ryan Bridgland ’06, Stefanie Watson ’05, and Winnie Nham ’09, political science.

“Music has played an important role for us throughout our lives, and we believe that every student should be afforded the opportunity to learn an instrument, regardless of socio-economic background,” said Nham.

“To us, this is truly a cause to perform for.”

A portion of ticket proceeds will go to the Bridges Program, which provides high-quality string education to youth in Baltimore City Public School at no cost to students.
