Benefit concert at Northside Tavern for Esme Kenney memorial sculpture

By Sheila Gray – bio | email

CINCINNATI, OH (FOX19) – A benefit concert will be held January 30 at the Northside Tavern to raise funds for a sculpture in Esme Kenney's memory, planned for the School for Creative and Performing Arts.

Entertainment will be provided by Karin Bergquist, Linford Detweiler, Ric Hordinski, Jay Bolotin, The Hiders, The Chocolate Horse and Kim Taylor.

A silent auction will include work by Michael Wilson, Jay Bolotin, Amy Bogard, Lisa Siders-Kenney and more.

Admission is $10.  Doors open at 6 p.m. with music from 7-10 p.m. Every penny to benefit the Esme Memorial to be installed in the new SCPA this year.

Esme Kenney was just thirteen when she was murdered while jogging near her home. She was a seventh-grade student at Cincinnati's School for Creative and Performing Arts.

A group of SCPA community members, including Esme's parents, seek to honor Esme, and every young life cut short, through the installation of a permanent sculpture in the new SCPA building. Suspended above the third-floor atrium, beautiful colored glass pieces will float, catching the sunlight streaming through a wall of south-facing windows. It will reflect Esme's enduring spirit of joy and hope. 

Coffee Emporium in Over The Rhine is also helping in the effort to raise money for Esme's memorial.
