BENEFIT CONCERT PERFORMANCE
International opera star, Laura Pedersen, will be giving a benefit concert performance accompanied by David Gooding on piano and Calvin Stokes on harp on February 25, 2005. The concert will benefit the West Side Ecumenical Ministry and will take place at the WSEM theater. The concert will raise funds to help support WSEM's many programs, including the children's theater program. Ms. Pedersen's husband, Brad Roller is an Advisory Trustee of WSEM. 'I can promise you that the funds raised from this concert will serve a very important purpose helping people in our community. I am continually amazed by the good works WSEM has done and continues to do in Cleveland'.
The concert is scheduled for Friday, February 25th at 7:30. A special benefit raffle will precede the concert with custom jewelry donated by Leonard Strnad II of Vivid Jewelers in Bay Village. Senator George Voinovich is the special guest host.
Ms. Pedersen is a long-term patient of Dr. Darrell White at Skyvision Center of Westlake. She had LASIK surgery performed by Dr. White some years ago. 'Now I can see the conductor when I am performing on stage. And I can always find Brad in the audience!
The concert is a unique opportunity to see this extraordinary talent here in her hometown. For information or to make a donation WSEM can be contacted at
