BAX Benefit Concert for Relay for Life

Members of Beta Alpha Chi (BAX), the music honor society at McDaniel College, will perform a benefit recital on Saturday, May 4, 2013, at noon in Baker Memorial Chapel.  The concert is free and open to the public, but a free will offering will be taken, with proceeds going to Relay for Life.

Performers include Kirsten Bickford, flute, Charles Eron, piano, Victoria Mansfield, flute and piano, Hanna Martin, soprano, Luis Ortiz, violin, and Lisa Staples, soprano.  Staff accompanist Rachel Andrews will also be featured.  Among the selections they will perform are Jason Robert Brown’s “Stars and the Moon” (Martin), the folk song, “How Can I Keep from Singing?” (Martin and Staples), Hindemith Sonata for Flute Movement 3, Sehr Lebhaft (Bickford and Mansfield), and some of Mozart’s piano sonatas (Mansfield).

Relay for Live began in May 1985, when Dr. Gordy Klatt walked and ran for 24 hours around a track in Tacoma, Washington, ultimately raising $27,000 to help the American Cancer Society fight the nation’s biggest health concern – cancer.  A year later, 340 supporters joined the overnight event.  Since those first steps, the Relay For Life movement has grown into a worldwide phenomenon, raising more than $4 billion to fight cancer.  Each year, more than 4 million people in over 20 countries take part in this global phenomenon and raise much-needed funds and awareness to save lives from cancer.  For more information, visit
