Riverside City College concert will benefit Path of Life Ministries homeless shelter

Riverside City College’s music department will present a “Concert for the Homeless” 4 p.m. Sunday, Sept. 30, in the college’s Henry W. Coil Sr. and Alice Edna Coil School for the Arts Concert Hall. The concert will feature the college’s ensembles in guitar, wind, jazz and percussion.
Admission is a minimum donation of $10. General admission tickets are available at  or on the day of the event at the Coil School for the Arts box office beginning at 3 p.m. Tickets are also available through the Landis Performing Arts Center box office between 11:30 a.m. and 4:30 p.m. Tuesday through Friday or by calling 951-222 8100.
Proceeds will benefit the Path of Life Ministries homeless shelter in Riverside. The ministry, as nonprofit agency, has served Riverside since 1998.
This year, the Riverside County Homeless Count and Survey Report identified 1,685 unsheltered and 631 sheltered homeless people in Riverside County, according to a press release from Riverside City College. However, it was the Riverside City College music department’s move downtown that inspired Professor Peter Curtis to get involved, according to the press release.
“In 2016, the department moved to an amazing new facility in downtown Riverside, the Henry W. Coil Sr. and Alice Edna Coil School for the Arts,” Curtis said in the press release. “Our presence in the downtown area led to encounters between students, faculty and the homeless people in Riverside’s downtown. This concert is one way both students and faculty can do something tangible to help the homeless in Riverside while sharing our music with the college community and general public,” Curtis said.
At the suggestion of Riverside City Councilman Mike Gardner, Curtis sought out Path of Life Ministries homeless shelter.
“When I inquired about a good organization that deals with this problem, Mike Gardner suggested Path of Life Ministries,” Curtis said. “After visiting the Path of Life shelter and seeing the amazing work that they do, I proposed the concert idea with the proceeds being donated to the shelter to help those in need.”
