Event Benefits Music in Santa Ana Schools


New Hope Presbyterian Church in Orange announces its second annual Rhapsody of Love concert to benefit music in the Santa Ana Unified School District (SAUSD), with particular emphasis on Willard Intermediate School. Proceeds will fund new music enrichment programs, which have been eliminated by budget cuts to education due to the State’s fiscal crisis. The concert will feature the musical genres of classical, Motown, spirituals and jazz performed by various Hollywood musical talents.


• Legendary percussionist Poncho Sanchez
• Santa Ana High School Jazz Band
• New Hope Presbyterian Church Youth and Adult Choir (with Willard Intermediate students)

Hollywood Talents:
• Violinist Lesa Terry
• Vocalist Judith Hill
