Concert for Nepal

The Department of Music is pleased to have raised over $1500 at its benefit concert on Tuesday, 12 May.  Thank you to everyone who performed, attended, and supported our work!

Special thanks to Fuccillo Imports in Watertown, which recently made a $250 donation.

David Henderson, chair of the department, has longstanding ties to the Kathmandu Valley, where his research is based.  Working with the student volunteer group, Literacy for Nepal, we continue to raise funds to help rebuild schools damaged in the earthquake in April.  One of the institutions we are supporting is the Kathmandu University Department of Music.  Initial estimates suggest that repairs there alone will cost around $125,000.
