The Blue Ridge Area Food Bank will serve more than 9,000 meals to people in our community thanks to a special classical music concert.
The Music Feeds Us quartet held a concert to benefit the food bank at First Presbyterian Church Sunday afternoon.
Two Charlottesville natives who graduated from theJuilliard School returned to the community, bringing two other accomplished musicians with them, to feed Charlottesville's hungry through music.
The Music Feeds Us quartet has been touring around the region raising money and food for the Blue Ridge Area Food Bank all week.
Violist and co-founder Fitz Gary stated, "It's been amazing how supportive Charlottesville has been, not only in people wanting classical music and wanting us to perform these concerts, but also the amount of money we can raise for the food bank has been incredible."
Sunday's performance raised more than $2,000, which will provide more than 9,000 meals.
