The concert is dedicated to Dick Lutz and will follow the memorial on that same day, at the Chapel of the Good Shepherd.

As part of our initiative to bridge our island’s youth with the community, and following a few events with the seniors, we are pleased to bring this concert emphasizing the equality in our community. We summarize the event with the following quote: “I do not have a disability, I have a gift”!

We will be honored if you joined us. Please note that the Good Shepherd Church will be filled with people honoring our Dick Lutz. Please come as early as possible.
