Concert to benefit Second Chance Animal Shelter
MANCHESTER — Second Chance Animal Center and Taconic Music are partnering to present "Animals in Music: A Diamond Anniversary Concert to Benefit Second Chance Animal
Center." The event is scheduled for Saturday, Nov. 2, and will take place at the Manchester Community Library.
"Second Chance is honored to partner with Taconic Music to organize a concert in celebration of our diamond anniversary," said Cathi Comar, executive director. "When we first met with Joana Genova and Ari Rudiakov to discuss the idea of a benefit concert, they didn't hesitate for one moment and immediately agreed to volunteer their talents to help our shelter. The concert will feature animal-themed music including "Cat Fugue," by Domenico Scarlatti, "Donkey Doodle," by William Kroll, and "The Swan," by Camille Saint-Saens, to name a few."
The event begins at 4:30 p.m., and a special anniversary cake and sparkling cider will be served before the 5 p.m. concert. Priority seating is available online through Eventbrite.com at $33.46 per person (cost of ticket plus surcharge), and general seating can be purchased through the shelter for a flat price of $30 per person. To purchase your ticket at the shelter, either stop by, call, or email info@2ndchance
animalcenter.org. General seating tickets are also available at the door on the afternoon of the event.
Manchester Community Library is located at 138 Cemetery Ave. and there is plenty of onsite parking. Proceeds from the concert will benefit Second Chance's Angel Fund. This special community program provides financial assistance to pet owners needing emergency veterinary care. In 2018, 48 animals were helped through the fund, and in 2019, assistance was provided to 58 pets and their owners.
