CHAMBERSBURG, Pa. - Seven musical acts will perform Saturday, Oct. 1, at Wilson College in the Katrina Relief Festival, with proceeds to go to Presbyterian Church (USA) Hurricane Response to benefit the victims of Hurricane Katrina.
The festival, which will feature bands from Chambersburg, Baltimore and Philadelphia, will take place from 2 to 6 p.m. on the Wilson College Green. A $5 donation is suggested.
Musical acts scheduled to perform during the concert include female vocalists Dresden of Chambersburg and Beth Wreck of Baltimore and the following bands: The Shackeltons, Written Letter and The Snoons, all of Chambersburg, Savory James of Baltimore and The Arctic of Philadelphia.
The idea for the festival was the result of a meeting of Wilson faculty and staff who gathered shortly after the hurricane struck the Gulf Coast to brainstorm ways to help. Wilson Environmental Studies Department Chair Ed Wells proposed a benefit concert.
