The Lehighton Area Music Department will be presenting a District-Wide concert tonight at 7:30 p.m. in honor of "Music In Our Schools Month."

The concert will feature performing ensembles from the Middle School and High School. The program will be held in the Lehighton High School Auditorium.

"Music In Our Schools Month" is a celebration throughout the United States sponsored by the Music Educators National Conference. This month has been designated as a time to call attention to the importance of music in our schools and its importance as an integrated core subject area in our students.

This year's program will feature the Middle School Jazz Ensemble, 7th and 8th Grade Concert Band, High School Concert Choir and the High School Concert Band.

The concert will feature a variety of literature encompassing many different genres of music. Admission is $3 for adults and $2 for students and seniors.

All proceeds will benefit the Music Department's MIOSM fund and a middle school student suffering from a brain tumor.

A free will offering will be held at the conclusion of the concert to directly benefit the medical needs of the student.
