Jamileh Cornejo, one of the most exciting young voices in Michiana and a SAM student, headlines the next Free Family Concert on September 27 at 3pm Eastern. The concert will be held at Converge Community Church at 601 N. Buffalo St. (US 12) in New Buffalo, Mich.
Cornejo, who performed recently at Harbor Country Arts’ Music in the Park series in Three Oaks, will present a program of opera and art songs, Broadway selections and modern song. Cornejo has participated in and won numerous competitions, among them Hoosier Star, the Indiana State Fair, and the First Christian Church of Rolliing Prairie’s Music in Me.
Admission to the concert is free, though donations are appreciated. Those who plan to attend are urged to register for free tickets in advance at schoolofamericanmusic.com under the Tickets & Merchandise tab. Tickets are not required, however.
Converge Community Church has socially distanced seating and limited capacity, in accordance with Michigan COVID-19 guidelines. Attendees are asked to wear face masks. If attendance exceeds capacity, there is an overflow area at the church to which the concert will be broadcast.
SAM’s Free Family Concerts, begun last fall with performers from the Michigan City Chamber Music Festival and others, were created to bring free, quality music to the community. The concerts are appropriate for both adults and children, and are supported by the Pokagon Fund.
