Also performing will be student pianists Morgan Pajo, 13, and Mitchell Kuga, 16, and clarinet student Allison Yoshida, 14, recipients of the Rita Thompson Music Scholarship, which is funded by proceeds of the annual concert.

Information on the scholarship, offered to students of musical instruments and not limited to church members, is also available from the church office.

The scholarship is named for Rita Thompson, organist at the church for 25 years.
