On June 5, the Melomaniac’s Music for Change festival will be held to raise funds for a charitable cause. All donations will benefit the Sheldon Concert Hall Music for Life Long Achievement program, a charity that donates instruments to disadvantaged children and music programs.

“I’m putting it on instead of doing a graduation party to help raise funds to buy instruments for kids in lower income areas who can’t afford them otherwise,” True Morse, senior and founder of Melomaniac, said.

The event is being organized by Morse’s non-profit organization Melomaniac, a group Morse founded with the goal of spreading music for positive change.

“I’ve always had a passion for music and also want to make the world a better place, and I thought ‘why not combine the two.’ I wanted to create something where instead of a band, just being a set group of people, with Melomaniac anyone can be a part of it, anyone can help and support the mission of positive change.” Morse said.

The festival will be held at the Wildwood Town Center, in the parking lot next to the Wildwood Hotel. The event will consist of eight musical acts, some including Lafayette students.

Vox Solus, Lafayette’s a cappella group, will be performing.

“I think it will be really cool, I think True Morse has put a lot of work into it and that it’s a really great idea to raise money and instruments for people who can’t afford them,” Karen Farmer, Vox Solus member, said.

The event will be free of charge and will begin at 11 a.m., with the first bands taking the stage at noon.
