Nine students at Scarborough High School will be performing a classical music benefit concert on March 11 at 7 p.m. to raise money for the nonprofit, Village Help for South Sudan. After hearing Sudanese refugee Bol Riiny, one of the “Lost Boys of Sudan,” speak last year, the students wanted to help the nonprofit reach its goal of building a village school in Sudan. Riiny and Franco Majok, executive director of VHSS, will give a brief presentation before the concert. The concert is at Scarborough High School and admission is $5 at the door.
