Candlelight Concert Benefits Immanuel Community Services’ Programs

Seattle, WA – On Friday evening, June 3, 2011 at 7:30 PM, Immanuel Community Services will host a benefit concert in the century-old Immanuel Lutheran Church. The beauty of this 100 year old church, located at 1215 Thomas Street in the Cascade Neighborhood, provides the perfect setting for the magical music performed by World Flute Master Gary Stroutsos and Percussionist David Revelli.
Gary Stroutsos’ music is influenced by many musical traditions, but he is perhaps best known for his work with American Indian cultures. He is featured in Ken Burns PBS documentary, “Lewis and Clark.” His influences include jazz, Afro-Cuban and Far Eastern musical traditions. Playing with Gary will be David Revelli, who gained a reputation as a popular drummer for Mary Chapin Carpenter, Jewel and Sheryl Crow. David’s interest in Middle Eastern drumming lends beautifully with Stroutsos’ mystical flute work.
All proceeds from this evening concert support Immanuel Community Services, a non-profit organization providing hope, dignity and community to people who are hungry, homeless or struggling with addiction. Their services include a Food Bank, a monthly Community Meal, a Recovery Center for men, and a Hygiene Program for men and women who are homeless and need a place to shower and launder their clothes.

Tickets for the Candlelight Concert are $18 for General Admission and $12 for students and/or seniors. Tickets are available through Brown Paper Tickets. Call 1-800-838-3006 or order on-line by visiting the ICS website www.icsseattle.org.
