Sen. Cherie Buckner-Webb, D-Boise, a noted jazz singer, will headline this year’s annual Boise High Chamber Orchestra benefit concert this Friday, singing with longtime BSU professor of piano Del Parkinson, a recipient of the Idaho Governor’s Award for Excellence in the Arts, and the Boise High Chamber Orchestra. The program promises “from Mozart to Gershwin, there will be a little something for everyone;” the concert starts at 7:30 p.m. in the Boise High School auditorium. Tickets are $10 for adults and $5 for students, teachers or seniors; they’re available online here or at the door. The concert will raise funds for the students in the orchestra to travel and perform in Europe.
Buckner-Webb is the chair of the Senate minority caucus.
