Claire Cucchiari-Loring Music Scholarship Fund Benefit Concert Friday

The Old Dominion music department will hold the sixth installment of the "Her Melody Lingers On" concert Friday evening to benefit a scholarship program established in memory of Claire Cucchiari-Loring.

The Feb. 7 program will be held at 8 p.m. in the F. Ludwig Diehn Center for the Performing Arts on the main ODU campus. Tickets are $10 for students or $15 for the general public and are available for purchase at the College of Arts and Letters ticket sales website. Doors open at 7:15 p.m.

This year's concert will focus on a range of vocal music featuring a collection of music department faculty and students that includes: Brian Nedvin with Andréa Marie Manaskie, Suzanne Oberdorfer, Marshall Severin, Stephen Coxe, Christian van Hoose and Mike Hall. The event will also include a silent auction and refreshments before the performance.

Cucchiari-Loring was a music student at ODU when she was killed by her estranged boyfriend in 2006. The annual concert honors her legacy and celebrates her talent as a young artist who was beloved by friends and family.

The annual scholarship is awarded to a member of the ODU Jazz Choir.
