WBU employees set benefit concert

Release Date: November 17, 2009

PLAINVIEW – The husband and wife team of Daniel and Kimberly Brown will hold a benefit concert in order to raise money to purchase construction materials for an AIDS clinic in Kenya, Africa. The concert is set for Sunday, Nov. 22, at 2 p.m. at the First Christian Church in Plainview.

Dr. Kimberly Brown is an assistant professor of vocal studies in the Wayland School of Music. Daniel is a recruiter in the admission office. Daniel, along with other Wayland and community members will travel to Kenya on Jan. 7 for the purpose of building a clinic in the Karanjee neighborhood.

The Browns, accompanied on piano by Dr. Samuel Brown, will perform a collection of sacred songs and duets including arrangements of famous hymns and classical pieces such as Come Thou Fount, God is Love, Wayfaring Stranger, in the Bleak Midwinter and Sweet Little Jesus Boy.

Admission to the performance is free. However, donations will be taken to help offset the cots of purchasing supplies. Once the clinic materials are purchased, any further funds will go toward buying medical supplies for the clinic.

The trip is being sponsored by the Wayland mission center and donations are being accepted. Anyone wishing to donate to the trip may contact Dr. Rick Shaw at 806-291-1162.
