Call it entertaining for a higher cause.
Instead of singing for their suppers, a diverse array of local performers will raise money to support a music scholarship at Red Deer College through the Sadie and Friends recital on Sunday, June 7.
Sadie Braun will be joined by fellow pianist Pansy Yang-Wynne, as well as her daughter, vocalist Sharon Braun, and other performers, including Braun’s former piano students, Morgan McKee and Nathan Hamilton, at 2:30 p.m. in Studio A at Red Deer College.
The talented performers will entertain in various groupings with two pianos, and occasional accompaniment from flute and guitar.
The diverse program includes classical piano pieces, such as Felix Mendelssohn’s Rondo Capriccio, the folk song Greensleeves, and the show tune Ain’t Misbehavin’.
Sadie Braun said she’s been supporting an annual RDC music scholarship since 1993. It alternately awards $350 to singing and piano students.
Admission to the recital is free, but contributions will be gratefully accepted towards the scholarship fund — and Braun said any donation over $10 can come with a tax receipt. For more information, call (403) 347-5166.
