Peter Zisa’s Concert Supports Charitable Organization

The fifth annual Peter Zisa and Friends Season of Lights Benefit Concert at First Christian Church Dec. 4 raised money for Jewish Family and Child Service.

The free concert features prominent Portland musicians and community artists performing Hanukkah and Christmas music. Performers donate their time and musical gifts for this community celebration. This year's performers included Neveh Shalom Cantor Deborah Bletstein, Ed Kraus (co-host of KBOO's Yiddish Hour), Grammy-award winning guitarist Doug Smith and Jazz Gospel singer extraordinaire Marilyn Keller.

Guests have an opportunity to contribute a charitable donation to Jewish Family and Children Services, which had an information table at the concert.

JFCS Executive Director Marian Fenimore said, "I am so appreciative of Peter's ability to bring wonderful musicians and the interfaith community together and support JFCS and the critical work we do."

"In each of past three years the SOL program has raised $1,500-$2,000 for the JFCS, and provided a wonderful community building celebration of music and storytelling," said Zisa, coordinator of guitar studies at Marylhurst University.
