One East Mount Vernon Place, Baltimore, MD 21202

The Johns Hopkins University School of Nursing again will join forces with the M.U.S.E. Foundation to present Nightingala 2006, an evening of folk, country, and bluegrass music performed by former John Denver Band members and colleagues. 

This year, in the tradition Denver established in his performances, a full orchestra-the Columbia Orchestra-will accompany the band.  Featured performers include John Sommers, Jim Salestrom, Chris Nole, Mollie Weaver, and local favorites Mack Bailey, Kenn Roberts, and the musical group, The Hard Travelers. 

All proceeds from the performance will benefit the School of Nursing community health centers and the free nursing care programs that are vital to vulnerable families and individuals in the Baltimore metropolitan area.   Funds raised through this year's benefit will support a variety of community and public health nursing services, including immunizations, health screenings, physical exams, preventive measures, parenting and nutrition classes, referrals, geriatric services, obesity-awareness, and after-school programs.

Tickets are $40 per person and can be purchased by calling 410-955-7551.   Media are invited to attend at no charge and may call 410-955-7552 for tickets.
