Benefit for the Performing Arts at Lord Fairfax Community College
5 September 2019 Community
At 7 p.m. on Sunday, September 15, 2019, LFCC is hosting its first Annual Benefit for the Performing Arts. The show is being hosted by Russell Rinker, a professional actor and musician who has been taking part in LFCC performances since he was just a preschooler. “The benefit will have kind of a cabaret format,” says Rinker, who was a longtime member of the world-famous Blue Man Group, has performed with the Los Angeles Opera and was in the national tour of “Amazing Grace.” “In addition to serving as host, I will be playing some solo music and singing and performing with other artists. Some of them will also be performing solos.” The show will also feature some musical skits and comedy. Among the featured artists are Side Pony, George Hoffman and Elizabeth Albert. Proceeds from the show will benefit the Andrea Ludwick Performing Arts Fund. Professor Ludwick retired this past spring after 45 years at Lord Fairfax teaching English, speech and theater. Tickets for the show are $20, and must be purchased in advance. The evening will include door prizes, free snacks and a cash bar.
