Dear South Huntington Family & Friends,
We would like to invite you to the Xanadu-Collective Virtual Concert (www.xanadulitmag.com) this Friday night at 7 pm for a night of amazing music, poetry and dance.
Last June, during the first wave of the pandemic, Whitman's literary magazine, Xanadu, and recording studio, The Collective, partnered together to produce The Mercy Benefit Concert, a digital music performance which raised over $18,000 for Huntington's local food outreach program.
Xanadu students and advisor, Pip and The Collective students, co-advised by Vito Monti & Matt Hoffman, have joined forces once again and this Friday night at 7 pm Whitman's talented students and faculty will deliver yet another stunning digital performance!
While the concert is free, viewers will get a chance to purchase raffle tickets to win an impressive array of prizes: a new guitar with 3 months of free music lessons courtesy of Murphy's Music, a Nintendo Switch Game System, a flat-screen TV, gift certificates to local restaurants and more.
We'd like to give a special thanks to Jeff Frohman at Murphy's Music for not only donating a free guitar and 3 months of free music lessons toward the raffle, but for also donating a second guitar to freshman musician, David Castro, who lost his home, and his guitar and bass in a tragic house fire. It's humbling to see the South Huntington music community pull together in a time of need.
While club fundraising efforts have been restricted because of Covid-19, know that your participation in Friday's concert will celebrate our student artists and musicians in South Huntington and your donations will directly support Whitman's literary magazine and recording studio club.
You can go to xanadulitmag.com to see the concert this Friday night at 7 pm!
We look forward to seeing you there!
