The Maspeth High School Choir will perform a spring benefit concert on Thursday.

The Maspeth High School (MHS) Choirs will be singing for a cause tonight.

The MHS choral program is set to finish its third year with a spring benefit concert to help Women in Need (WIN), an organization that provides shelters for homeless women and their children.

The concert — which is called “She is Someone” — will take place on Friday, May 26, at 7 p.m., and will feature the works of female poets and composers across a variety of time periods including Amy Beach, Hildegard von Bingen, and Carole King.

Tickets for the spring concert will be sold at the door of MHS, located at 54-40 74th St. Prices for tickets are as follows: students $5, adults $7, and children under 10 are free. Funds raised from the performance will be donated to WIN.

“Through the Maspeth music program, we teach our students the power the arts have to connect people and give a voice to those who might otherwise be silent,” said Evan Wichman, choir director. “We’re honored to shine a spotlight on the amazing female composers we admire, while also raising awareness of the vital mission the Women In Need shelter supports.”

The works that will be performed include:

·         Hildegard von Bingen: “O Frondens Virga;”

·         Carole King: “One Fine Day;”

·         H.H.A. beach: “Two Short Anthems;”

·         Marsha Norman/Lucy Simon: “Hold On;” and

·         Eric Whitacre/Hila Plitmann: “Five Hebrew Love Songs.”
