REMINDER: Friends of Renton Schools host all-day concert Saturday at The Landing

The Friends of Renton Schools Foundation will host an all-day fundraising concert tomorrow, March 22, to support music programs in the Renton School District.

The event is from 11 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. at The Landing, 828 N. 10th Place, Renton.

The group’s goal is to raise $10,000 to improve programs and make music more accessible to more students. This is the second annual March Music Month in support of the district’s music programs.

Friends of Renton Schools is a non-profit organization managed by community and business volunteers and dedicated to raising funds for education in Renton Schools.

The all-day concert will feature 15 musical acts from Hazen, Renton and Lindbergh high schools as well as Sierra Heights Elementary School and Nelsen, Dimmitt and McKnight middle schools.

“Every student can benefit from the experiences, education and lifelong enjoyment that singing in a choir or learning an instrument provides,” said Brian Hoskins in a press release. He is the choral conductor for Lindbergh High and Nelsen Middle schools.

The foundation is also collecting gently-used musical instruments at the event.
