The School of Nursing has joined forces with the M.U.S.E. Foundation to present “A Musical Tribute to John Denver” on June 5, 2004 at 8:00 p.m. at the Peabody Concert Hall. All proceeds from the performance will benefit the school’s community health programs.

     Community health nursing is a vital part of the Baltimore metropolitan area. Through its community health programs, ranked second in the nation by U.S. News & World Report, the School of Nursing operates several centers that have become neighborhood hubs where vulnerable families and individuals come to receive free quality nursing care.  Services offered include immunizations, health screenings,

physical exams, preventive measures, parenting and nutrition classes, referrals, geriatric services, and after-school programs.

     Melissa Stark, NBC national correspondent for The Today Show and former sideline reporter for ABC Monday Night Football will host the concert. The evening will feature folk, country, and bluegrass music by former John Denver Band members and colleagues. In the Denver tradition, a Peabody string quartet will perform four numbers with the band.
