The Philly POPS present “Motown’s Greatest Hits” with Maestro Todd Ellison and award-winning group Spectrum was a success!
The Foundation of Morris Hall/St. Lawrence, Inc. is pleased to announce that the Philly Pops Benefit Concert “Motown’s Greatest Hits”, held at the Patriots Theater at the Trenton War Memorial on Saturday, October 5, 2019 was a tremendous success. The Patriots Theater was almost sold out and the audience were dancing and singing along with the Motown songs that everyone loves! The vocal quartet Spectrum delighted the audience with songs from the Temptations, The Four Tops, Smokey Robinson & The Miracles, The O’Jays, Drifters and many more! We also welcomed Maestro Todd Ellison, the Music Director of the Philly pops! Students from Ewing High School, Lawrence High School, Notre Dame High School, Princeton International School of Math and Sciences, Trenton High School and the Boys and Girls Club of Mercer County were in attendance due to the generosity of our sponsors. We also welcomed Hope Perry from Lawrence High School, who had the opportunity to conduct the orchestra during the Stars and Stripes March.
This was our eighteenth concert with the Philly Pops and we raised significant funds that will be used towards charity care for the patients and residents of St. Lawrence Rehabilitation Center and Morris Hall. The mission of the Foundation is to provide dollars towards delivering quality healthcare for uninsured patients and indigent residents at St. Lawrence Rehabilitation Center and Morris Hall. It also provides medical equipment for patients and residents that is not reimbursed by healthcare insurance.
