Classical Music Concert Benefits Diabetes Research

A newly formed trio of Door County musicians will perform Friday, Nov. 19 at 7 pm at the Unitarian Universalist Fellowship in Ephraim. Cellist Kim Souther and violinist Beth Chafey-Hon will join pianist David Beck for an evening of great classical music. The dynamic program will include works by Hadyn, Smetana, Rachmaninov, Franck, and Liszt.

All proceeds from the concert will benefit the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation (JDRF), the largest and the most progressive organization funding research worldwide for a cure for Type 1 Diabetes.

The evening will feature a short explanation of what diabetes is by Chafey-Hon’s daughter, 16-year-old Angel Hon, who has been living with Type 1 Diabetes since age 10. Also, Miss Door County, Crystal Burke, will give a short presentation on preventing Type 2 Diabetes through diet and exercise.

Admission is $20 at the door. A reception featuring wine, hors d’oeurves, and desserts will follow the concert.
