A Performance with a Purpose will be held on Sunday (June 17) in memory of an inspiring Red Deer College music instructor.

The colleagues and students of Rick Nigg, who died of colon cancer last August, are holding a memorial concert to fund a scholarship for students studying music through the college’s Conservatory of Music.

Nigg was described as a dedicated and enthusiastic guitar teacher, who made learning infectious. “What started out to be an annual recital for Rick’s guitar students has blossomed into a concert to celebrate Rick’s love of music and teaching,” say organizers.

A variety of music in many genres, including classical, pop, rock, and Celtic, will be performed by musicians and singers including Shannon Frizzell, Larry Reese, Curtis Phagoo, Tina Hunter and Underside Pattern.

Tickets for the 2 p.m. concert at the RDC Arts Centre, Mainstage, are $19.20 ($14.20 seniors/children) from the Black Knight Ticket Centre.
