John Marshall student Andrew Rice is working towards his Eagle Scout award, and his project combines his passion with a purpose.
He will host a benefit concert Saturday called Music for Meals. Andy’s dad is on active duty in Japan, and he wanted to honor him with his project.
All proceeds from the concert will be donated to the Wheeling Center of Veteran’s Affairs and provide meals at the veteran’s hospital in Pittsburgh.
The concert is Saturday night at 7 p.m. at the Strand Theater in Moundsville. Music will be performed by the John Marshall High School strings, chamber group, and band.
Tickets are $5 at the door.
