‘The Heart of Peace Concert: An Expression of Music & Song’ Returns to TCC South

Tickets are on sale for the 2019 Heart of Peace Concert at Tarrant County College South, featuring singers, dancers and drummers from across the globe. Scheduled for Saturday, Feb. 16 at 6:30 p.m. in the TCC South Performing Arts Center, this special engagement is designed for the entire family.

For the second consecutive year, TCC South’s presentation of The Heart of Peace Concert will provide much-needed financial support for scholarships for TCC students, and the global educational and humanitarian projects of two Tarrant County rotary clubs.

“It is a privilege again this year to partner with the Arlington Great Southwest and Fort Worth East Rotary Clubs on this exciting expression of arts and culture,” said TCC South President Peter Jordan. “I encourage everyone to get their tickets to what promises to be a sold out event.”

VIP tickets, which includes a post-concert reception, are $75 each, while tickets for general admission are $25 and $5 for students. Call 817-531-3804 or 817-994-7575 to purchase or reserve tickets.

This year’s event will feature performances by TCC’s Jazz Combo, pianist Oscar Dressler, L. D. Bell Steppers, Indique Dance Group, Black Steel (steel pan ensemble), Dondoko Taiko (Japanese drummers), Romanian dancers and many more.

“Attending and supporting this concert is a great way to celebrate faculty and support student success at TCC while enjoying a fantastic evening of music and dance,” Jordan explained.

Community members can experience diverse arts and culture programming at TCC South throughout the academic year, and The Heart of Peace Concert is just another example of TCC’s commitment to serving the community.

“A few years ago, the Rotarians in District 5790 and the TCC Foundation partnered to raise money for student scholarships,” said Paul Geisel, international service director for the Fort Worth East Rotary Club. “This partnership has enabled Fort Worth East Rotary to fund eight students in the past two years and we plan to support three more this fall. This has been a rewarding experience for us in the club to see ‘our’ students do so well.”

Since 2016, members of the Fort Worth East Rotary Club have donated $15,500 to support students pursuing a degree at TCC.

Jordan appreciates the partnership. “On behalf of the TCC community, I extend our sincere thanks to the Rotary Clubs of Fort Worth East and Arlington Great Southwest for bringing this evening of culture to our campus and the greater community,” he said.
