Summers concert to benefit SCC
SARAH SUMMERS, 18, is planning one more Sonoma concert before she leaves for UCLA.
Local 18-year-old singer and dancer is about to embark on her life journey to the University of California Los Angeles in the fall, but Sarah Summers will make one final stop in concert at Andrews Hall in the Sonoma Community Center.
This concert which will take place on Monday, Sept. 3, at 7 p.m., will benefit the Rotary $100,000 Challenge Grant to help rebuild and preserve Andrews Hall at the community center.
Gifted in both singing and dancing Summers has entertained Sonoma residents for most of her life. She recently auditioned for and was accepted to UCLA’s acclaimed School of World Arts and Culture, with a scholarship for this fall.
“I will remember Sonoma as a tightly-woven community that fondly nurtures the arts and those who pursue them. While the limitations of a small town have been frustrating on occasion, almost all of my songwriting is inspired by the relationships I have developed with both the town and its occupants. I performed once before at Andrews Hall and loved the more formal setting, a great change from the bars and restaurants I normally perform in. I hope that my contribution to Andrews Hall will allow me to perform there again someday when I return to Sonoma, and that it will make the venue more accessible to other musicians,” Summers said.
This concert is part of the center’s ongoing efforts to raise funds for the Sonoma Valley Rotary’s $100,000 match grant to revitalize the historic stage and theater space.
Tickets are $15, or $12 for students, if purchased in advance at www.sonomacommunitycenter.org or by calling 938-4626, ext. 1. Tickets are $20 at the door.
The community center is located at 276 E. Napa St.
