Mustard Seed Peace Project will host the Concert for Zambia on Saturday, January 14, 2012, from 6:00 p.m. 11:00 p.m. on the Campus of Lewis & Clark Community College in the Trimpe Building Advanced Technology Center. The cost for the event will be $20.00 per person, which will include live entertainment, heavy appetizers, and an art exhibit. A cash bar will be available starting at 6:00 p.m. Advance tickets may be purchased online at: www.MustardSeedPeaceProject.org.
Mustard Seed Peace Project is a local grassroots organization whose mission is the development of youth worldwide. Proceeds from this event will go directly to support their Education Sponsorship Program in the rural Lukulu Region of Zambia.
The evening will be a celebration of art, dancing and music. This one night event will kick off the art exhibit, which will remain on campus for one month as part of its Black History Month calendar. Many large “SilverScreen Quilts” will be on display, which are art works of cloth, paint and mixed media inspired by African American films and cinema.
From 7:00 p.m. – 9:00 p.m., Raw Earth will engage the crowd with their percussive sound, which they label “urban tribal fusion.”
From 9:00 p.m. – 11:00 p.m., Zion and the Lion Roots Band will enlighten and entertain the audience with Roots Reggae music.
