Bay Chamber Concerts and Wish for Haiti have teamed up to raise funds for Haitian orphanage The House of the Children of the Lack, which was among the many buildings in Port-au-Prince destroyed by the disastrous earthquake of Jan. 12.

Bay Chamber Concerts and Wish for Haiti are raising funds to support the relief and rebuilding efforts for this small, struggling orphanage, and Bay Chamber Concerts is accepting donations on behalf of Wish for Haiti.   These efforts will culminate at Bay Chamber Concerts’ DBR & The New Clef Coalition concert Sunday, March 7 at 2:30 p.m. at the Rockport Opera House, 6 Central St.

The concert features Haitian-American artist Daniel Bernard Roumain (aka DBR), who recently performed with Lady Gaga on “American Idol.” Audience members will have the opportunity to make donations to Wish for Haiti. At the end of the concert, Bay Chamber will announce total money raised for the orphanage.
