Become a “Friend of Music at St. Alban’s”

New Neighborhood has been fortunate to have this type of music program and the talent of Henry Lebedinsky right in the middle of our development! Many residents have enjoyed the multi-faceted concerts in the series each year. However, as we are all aware, the economy is rough and funding for such events is difficult. Ticket sales do not cover the costs associated with these professional presentations. This may, in fact, be a “Make-or-Break” season for the program. The church would appreciate donations from our neighborhood music-lovers. Donations can be dropped off at the church office anytime during the week or mailed to St. Alban’s Episcopal Church (with “Music at St. Alban’s” in the check memo field) at P.O. Box 970, Davidson, NC 28036.
