Annamae Harmon, a senior at the Christian Academy of Madison, will host the concert at 2 p.m. Saturday at St. John’s United Church of Christ, 406 East St.
Harmon, who plays piano and violin, will be joined by other musicians playing a variety of genres from rock to ragtime.
A prompt for Harmon’s required senior project asked students to help out their communities. Though Harmon said she had no experience with Habitat in the past, she knew it was a worthy cause for the project.
“I knew it would be great to have a chance to work with them,” she said.
Admission to the concert is free, but donations are encouraged as all proceeds will be given to the Habitat organization.
Harmon said she recruited other musicians through her peers and teachers and soon more offered their time.
Other musicians featured in Saturday’s lineup include: Steve Pullias and Andrew Beaumont with a guitar and vocal duet, pianist Nolan Tandy, flautist Bridget MacIntosh, pianist Isaac Boone, dulcimer player John Sheckler, vocalists Evelyn Wheeler and Camille Fife with pianist Hariette Parton, pianist Lynn Maricle, pianist Terry Parrish and Harmon on piano.
