ODU Musical Showcase to Benefit Portsmouth Community Concerts

The Old Dominion University music department will host a performance showcase on April 5 as a benefit to assist with funding the 75th season of Portsmouth Community Concerts Inc.

Willett Hall is located at 3701 Willett Drive, in Portsmouth. The 2,000-seat entertainment facility has outstanding acoustics and regularly features concerts, guest speakers, theatrical performances, musicals and dance performances.

Portsmouth Community Concerts Inc. (PCCI) is one of the oldest community concert series in the country.

Sally C. Wright, director of ODU's Community Music Division and PCCI's Artistic Selection Committee chairwoman, said the April 5 performance serves not only as a fundraiser for PCCI, but also provides an opportunity for ODU music students to perform in a large concert hall.
