St. David is the patron saint of Wales; this concert honors Welsh tradition and culture locally, with Welsh folk songs and hymns. Tess Ziek had a solo French horn performance in the concert for the first time this year. She says about 30 people attended -- understandable, given the weather conditions.

Ziek said the concert is important as it draws together people from different churches, community organizations, and even outlying communities themselves. Donations were accepted; fundraising totals are pending.
