Lorrie Morgan and Mo Pitney to Appear at Sixth Annual Music With A Mission

Lorrie Morgan

Jim Gray (conductor, Nashville Symphony) along with the Grammy® award-winning Nashville Symphony, are gearing up for this year’s Music with a Mission on Sunday, October 2, 2016, at 7:00 p.m. at the beautiful Schermerhorn Symphony Center with proceeds benefiting Nashville Rescue Mission. The Mission serves over 2,000 meals a day, and provides over 800 men, women, and children experiencing homelessness with safe shelter each night.

“This is our sixth year in presenting Music with a Mission with proceeds benefiting those who find help and hope at Nashville Rescue Mission,” shared Jim Gray, conductor of the Nashville Symphony. “This year’s line-up features some all-star performers crossing a variety of genres. Performers include, country music singer and member of the Grand Ole Opry, Lorrie Morgan; country music singer-songwriter Mo Pitney; GRAMMY® winning Contemporary Christian singer and songwriter Chris Tomlin; author, actor, songwriter, and Christian music artist, GRAMMY® winner Jason Crabb; and last but certainly not least, Ghanaian-born singer and songwriter Ruby Amanfu. We are so excited about this year’s show. It will be a magical night that will entertain young and old alike while helping an extremely worthy cause.”

“We appreciate the tremendous support we continue to receive from Nashville’s entertainment community,” said Rev. Glenn Cranfield, president and CEO of Nashville Rescue Mission. “This event is a wonderful opportunity for the community to enjoy an impressive night of musical entertainment, while also giving help and hope to the homeless. Each day the Mission serves over 2,000 meals to hungry and homeless men, women, and children. And while helping the homeless might start with a meal at the Mission, we offer that and so much more. We are grateful for our donors, volunteers, and everyone who plays a role in helping us meet the needs of those we serve. We could not do this without you.”

Jim Gray will conduct the award-winning Nashville Symphony. This event is also made possible through the generosity of sponsors and performers. Missy & Rick Baker are this year’s Presenting Sponsor. This year’s Patron Sponsor is a generous, but anonymous donor. Southern Lawn Equipment is this year’s Meet & Greet Sponsor. All Music with a Mission performers are donating their time and talent to the event, with proceeds benefiting Nashville Rescue Mission. The Schermerhorn Symphony Center is located at One Symphony Place, Nashville, TN 37201.

Tickets for this benefit are now on sale, with general admission seating starting at $39. Visit www.nashvillesymphony.org to purchase tickets or call the box office at 615-687-6400.
