The Jamestown Music Boosters have changed its spring fundraiser from a dinner concert to a concert featuring musical groups from Jamestown Public Schools.

“Music Blooms” is the name of the concert and will have students in grades 6-12 performing in solo, duet and larger music group performances.

Michelle Weatherly, a Jamestown Music Booster, said the booster club wanted to try something different to attract more people to the fundraiser. Funds raised by the Jamestown Music Boosters goes to support music programs at Jamestown Public Schools.

Weatherly said music being performed includes vocal, band and string instruments. Teachers Heather Aune, Ken Aune and Meredith Meidinger will have students perform their pieces from state music competitions.

Jenny Michalenko’s middle and high school students will perform songs on string instruments.

The concert starts at 4 p.m. Sunday, April 9, at the Jamestown High School Theater. Tickets are $5 for students, $10 for adults and $25 for families and will only be sold at the door.
