Concert to benefit birth center Sunday

Father's Day performance has four sets by local musicians

Posted: Thursday, June 15, 2000

Seven Juneau musicians will perform a Father's Day concert at 4 p.m. Sunday at Northern Light United Church.

Proceeds benefit the nonprofit Juneau Family Birth Center.

The musicians will team up to perform four different sets of music. Joyce Parry Moore will sing songs for children and parents, including some classic lullabies, she said. Kim Andrews will accompany her on piano.

``It's a mixture of pieces that are family-oriented, that honor families, moms and dads, little babies - all that. And that's what the birth center is all about,'' she said.

Her husband Patrick Moore will perform songs he's written for his children.

``Since it's Father's Day, we have to have one father on the program,'' Parry Moore said.

Teri Tibbett will also play a set of family-oriented songs and some sing-a-longs as well, she said.

Mary DeSmet will be joined by violinist Melissa Zahasky and guitarist and singer Curt Terrell to play folk songs with a family focus.

All musicians are donating their talents for the benefit. Midwife Kaye Kanne, founder of the center, delivered Tibbett's two children as well as the Moore's young daughter.

Tickets to the concert are $10 for adults, $2.50 for students and seniors. Babies and preschool-age kids are admitted free. A family pass is $20. Tickets are available at the birth center at 3225 Hospital Dr., at Rainbow Foods, or at the door.
