Students from Bay State College’s Event Management class will be hosting their annual benefit concert on December 2th at 7:30pm at the Brighton Music Hall.

For the past three years, Bay State College Professor Jess White has assigned her Event Management students a semester-long service learning project designed to teach the fundamentals of producing a professional level event, while practicing the importance of social responsibility within the music industry. Twenty students are involved in all aspects of producing this event, and all profits will be donated to Artists for Humanity; a non-profit based in Boston, MA. 

Artists for Humanity’s mission is to bridge economic, racial, and social divisions by providing under-sourced youth with the keys to self-sufficiency through paid employment in the arts. Through paid employment, Artists for Humanity allows individuals to develop respect and responsibility in their work which promotes self-esteem and financial accountability,

The December 2nd event features all local, Boston-based bands, in a variety of genres, including For The Year, Bron Don, Lski, Gretchen and the Pickpockets, Iyadonna and Quiet Island.    

“We enjoy doing this event every year,” says Professor White.  “It is invaluable experience for our students in the Event Management class, and it gives us the chance to give back to the community in a significant way.”

The show will be for all ages and admission is only $5.00.  To purchase tickets online please visit http://brightonmusichall.com
