haiti-flag[1].gifWillimantic, CT -- Eastern Connecticut State University will present a relief concert designed to raise money for the victims of the earthquake in Haiti at 2:30 p.m. on Feb. 28 in Shafer Hall Auditorium, located at Windham and Valley Streets in Willimantic, CT.  The public is invited.  Admission is free.  All donations will support relief efforts for Haiti.   

            "Watching the tragedy unfold in Haiti, the music faculty felt we have no choice but to respond by using the tremendous power of music to bring community together in an effort to help in whatever way we can," said Professor David Belles.
