UVic music students host African fundraiser

Beneficiary African AIDS Angels working on a number of projects

Students from the faculty of music at the University of Victoria’s  host a fundraising event Feb. 8 to support women and children living with HIV/AIDS in sub-Saharan Africa.

The student-organized and promoted Music For Africa event, to be held at the Philip T. Young recital hall, also features 18-year-old Eehjoon Kwan, a Mount Douglas secondary student who was the 2012 Victoria Symphony Splash young soloist.

Tickets are $10 for adults and $5 for kids. Silent auction items will be available in the lobby prior to the performances. All proceeds benefit African Aids Angels. For more information on that program, visit aidsangelsvictoria.ca.
