Bullying is theme of short concert

Students are working with Michael Kelsey.


Project Jericho will host a free acoustic concert with an anti-bullying theme at 5 p.m. Friday in the Community Rooms of the Clark State Performing Arts Center.

The event, called My Song: Louder Than the Violence, will feature 30 minutes of original music, written and performed by area students in collaboration with guitar virtuoso and Project Jericho lead artist Michael Kelsey.

“These youth auditioned for the opportunity to write, record and perform original songs in a one-week songwriting intensive,” said Scott Dawson, concert organizer and faculty coordinator of new media and graphic design at Clark State.

“This is the third annual Project Jericho My Song program,” Dawson said. “In past years, the theme of the concert has been wide open, but this year we decided to focus on an anti-bullying theme because it has become such an issue in our country. In these songs, produced with the help of Michael Kelsey, the audience will hear these youth turn their struggles with bullying into a positive message of hope.”

A CD of the music will be available for free download from CDBaby.com, where previous Project Jericho albums are also available.

Project Jericho is a nationally acclaimed outreach program based at Clark State Community College in cooperation with Job & Family Services of Clark County. Funding is provided by the Ohio Arts Council and The Turner Foundation. Project Jericho provides positive, in-depth arts experiences for local youth and families.
