“Honoring Lori’s Legacy" Benefit Concert Saturday
08/08/2014

Music is somehow linked to memory and that idea will play out in harmony Saturday evening at the Seward County Community College Showcase Theater when the Lori Geis Choir Alumni present a benefit concert “Honoring Lori’s Legacy.”
The event, set for 7 p.m. is free to the public with a free will donation to the SCCC/ATS Foundation for music scholarships in Geis’ memory.
An accomplished vocalist, beloved choir director and dedicated educator, Geis died in 2013 after a battle with cancer. Prompted by longtime friend and adopted grandmother Barbara Hanson of Liberal, friends, former students and colleagues have contributed to a memorial scholarship for vocal music at SCCC/ATS in Geis’ name.
The Saturday concert will feature a broad spectrum of music, from the National Anthem and the Battle Hymn of the Republic to favorites like Bridge Over Troubled Water, You Are My Sunshine, hymns, gospel standards, show tunes and classical selections. Former choir members from Liberal and out-of-town locations will sing with accompaniment by area pianist Becky Robison. Former student Derek Bridenstine will direct the concert.
Geis was “a huge influence not only in my personal life but in my music career also,” Bridenstine said. “Throughout the 11 years that I was involved with her groups, she helped me become more confident as a singer, and also a better teacher.”
To prepare for the concert, Bridenstine drew on the knowledge of music and organizational skills he first learned from Geis.
“I have tried to follow in her footsteps to plan a concert that she would be proud of,” he said.

The concert begins at 7 p.m., in the SCCC/ATS Showcase Theater. Admission is a free will donation to the SCCC/ATS Foundation, for music scholarships. For more information, call the Foundation office at 417-1131 or visit Alumni.sccc.edu.
