An Evening with Christian Ketter
On November 15, Saint Patrick High School of Chicago held its annual benefit concert to raise funds to provide tuition assistance to students in need. The concert was hosted by Dr. Joseph Schmidt. Operatic tenor Christian Ketter, alumnus of Saint Patrick High School along with the violinist Cara Schlecker and the pianist Myron Silberstein performed selections from their premier compact disc “Beloved”, along with selections from the upcoming recording projects. Guests had an opportunity to meet the performers, purchase their CDs and mingle. All in all, it was a wonderful evening for a worthy cause.
