Students spearheading Rebuilding Chile benefit concert

On February 27th the second largest earthquake in recorded history, measuring 8.8 on the Richter scale, hit the nation of Chile. Utah State University student Cameron Rigby, who returned just two months ago from a two-year mission in Chile for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, says damage has risen to over $30 billion and the people of Chile are badly in need of help.On KVNU’s Crosstalk show Monday, Rigby said a Rebuilding Chile benefit concert will be held the night of Friday, April 2 in the Kent Concert Hall of the USU Chase Fine Arts Center. The concert will be hosted by local group of concerned citizens with the USU Department of Music as co-sponsor. Rigby says great music will be presented by such entertainers as pianist Jon Schmidt, American Idol finalist Les Cabrera and others. Rigby says all proceeds from the event will go directly to the Chilean Red Cross Humanitarian Organization. Tickets are available through the USU Caine School of the Arts box office and the Taggart Student Center.
