A musical way to raise tuition money

Here’s an excellent way to raise music tuition money: Give your own benefit concert.

Meredith Oatman-Thompson, a 15-year-old organ and piano student from Orofino, Idaho, will present “Bach to Goth” Sunday at 4 p.m. at the Cathedral of St. John the Evangelist, 127 E. 12th Ave.

Oatman-Thompson is on her way back to the prestigious Interlochen Arts Academy in Michigan for her sophomore year and she needs to supplement her scholarship.

She’ll play several organ pieces by Bach and the Suite Gothique by Leon Boellmann. She’ll switch over to piano to play Beethoven’s “Moonlight Sonata.”

No tickets are required, but donations will be gratefully appreciated.

“I really like the learning environment on campus; everyone is focused on their art,” said Oatman-Thompson, a member of the Nez Perce Tribe
