The Fort Wayne Philharmonic Players’ Association is pleased to announce a concert to benefit The Rescue Mission Sunday September 15, at 4pm at the Foellinger Theater in Franke Park, Fort Wayne, IN.

The Rescue Mission, founded in 1903, is a faith-based, nonprofit, 501(c)(3) organization, providing restorative care to men, women and children experiencing a homeless crisis. The Rescue Mission serves Fort Wayne, Allen County and its nine surrounding counties

Organized by the musicians of the Players’ Association and conducted by Andrew Constantine, the concert, aptly titled “Mission Possible,” will feature classics from the orchestral repertoire.

Through this free concert, the Players' Association has set a goal to raise funds through sponsorship and free will donations to support The Rescue Mission. It takes approximately $8,000 per day to operate The Rescue Mission.

Campbell MacDonald, spokesperson for the Players’ Association remarks, “the members of the Philharmonic Players Association are thrilled to present this benefit for an organization with such a remarkable history of service to our region."

Richard Cummins, Chief Development Officer of The Rescue Mission says, "The Rescue Mission is very thankful to The Fort Wayne Philharmonic Players’ Association for their generosity to and concern for men, women and children that face a homelessness crisis in our area."

The Fort Wayne Philharmonic Players' Association is dedicated to providing cultural growth, economic health and quality of life to Fort Wayne and the surrounding area through the consistent performance of orchestral music at the highest level of excellence.
