The Syracuse University Brass Ensemble will play its annual Pops Concert on Sunday, April 17, at 3 p.m. at the United Church of Fayetteville, 310 E. Genesee St., Fayetteville, NY 13066.
The concert will benefit InterFaith Works of Central New York. Working to affirm the dignity of each person and every faith community, the nonprofit agency’s four main programs include the Center for New Americans, Center for Dialogue, Senior Services and Spiritual Care programs. Proceeds from the concert will support InterFaith Works’ (IFW) capital campaign, which is funding the purchase and renovation of its new headquarters, located at 1010 James St., Syracuse. The new building was chosen for its central location, which is easily accessible to those the agency serves. (http://www.interfaithworkscny.org/)

Ray Farr; Toccata (from the Organ Symphony) by CM Widor; Year of the Dragon by Philip Sparke; Midway March by John Williams; and Dona Nobis Pacem (B Minor Mass) by JS Bach; as well as other popular selections.
