In response to Hurricane Harvey and the extreme impact it has brought on our community, the Kingwood Big Band and the Kingwood Chorale would like to invite you to attend our fall concerts FREE OF CHARGE. Many of our performers, supporters and advertisers were directly affected by flooding and the indirect impact on those who were not flooded has taken an immense toll as well.
"Music can help us deal with pain and loss in a very cathartic way, and I feel compelled to present music from the Chorale that speaks to the human condition of loss, grief and triumph in these hard times." - Dr. Todd Miller, Artistic Director, Kingwood Chorale
Donations will be accepted at the concerts with 100% going to the Lake Houston Area Relief Fund, a charity recently formed by Insperity, Somebody Cares Humble, Lake Houston Area Chamber of Commerce, Houston Area Assistance Ministries and other community leaders. Insperity will match up to $1 million for all contributions made to LHA Relief Fund which will go toward rebuilding Atascocita, Humble, Kingwood, Fall Creek and Summerwood communities.
"We were quite affected by the hardships sustained by our families and neighbors. It is our honor to present jazz relief to lift spirits and promote the recovery of our community as well as the greater Houston area." - Alfredo Velez, Director, Kingwood Big Band
