The University of Montana Entertainment Management program hosted local musicians over the weekend to raise money for hungry Montanans. On Sept. 20, students hosted a socially-distanced concert at the Phyllis Washing Park Amphitheater on campus.
UM students Augustus Ballantine, Connor Dennis, Paul Johnstone and Diamond Gillespie organized the event to benefit Feed Montana. Social distancing was a top priority, with spaced-out live seating at the amphitheater.
The event was also hosted via livestream with a small suggested donation recommended. Feed Montana and The Montana Food Bank Network partner with over 280 other food banks and have raised money to feed Montanans with over 110,000 meals.
Performers in the concert included The Fertile Crescent, Cosmic Sans, Emzee & Silas, Norwell Band, and Elijah Jalil.
