APSC dedicates this concert set to the good people and works of the REDWOOD EMPIRE FOOD BANK. This time of year is often the hardest for the needy and those who serve them. While many donations come in during the holidays, by the beginning of each new year, REFB will have to double their efforts to secure more food. This is a time when all of us in the
community can collaborate and help ensure food will be available throughout the year. Please donate to this worthy cause and enjoy the beautiful music.
APSC has been giving concerts free of charge since 1999, sustained almost completely on the generosity of donations by audience members.
Tickets to the January 30 and 31 concerts are free of charge, feature open seating, and are available at the door 60 minutes prior to the concert. Members will have reserved seats. For more information, or to inquire about becoming a member, please visit www.apsonoma.org.
