Benefit for Global Mission Institute spreads Love All Around the World

Mark your calendars for the third annual benefit concert for the Global Mission Institute, "Love All Around the World III." The concert will be held Saturday, May 12 at 6:30 p.m. at Luther Seminary's Chapel of the Incarnation in the Olson Campus Center.

This year's concert will feature six classically trained musicians who are organized and led by Mikyoung Park, Master of Divinity senior and 2009 Master of Sacred Music graduate. Park also holds a doctorate in voice performance. She pioneered the idea for a benefit concert in 2009 as a way to show her gratitude for the scholarship support she received to study at Luther Seminary.

All concerts are open to the public with a suggested freewill donation to support the International Student Scholarship Fund, which supports international students recommended by their home church bodies for leadership development at Luther Seminary.

This academic year, Luther Seminary is blessed with 73 international students from 27 different countries and several different religious denominations, studying in nearly every program offered. About 90 percent of international students receive some form of financial aid, ranging from continuation fees to full support of tuition and living expenses.

"We are so incredibly fortunate that this year's concert will feature the talents of six classically trained, highly accomplished musicians who both teach and perform internationally," said Chenar Howard, GMI program and relations coordinator. "Their gracious generosity is such a gift to the seminary."
