“BSPA has been providing students with scholarships for the past several years as part of strong effort to keep supporting fledgling student artists,” said Robles. “The students that we impact are those that do not qualify for financial aid or talented international students that frequently fall through the cracks. Over the years, we have seen the number of students in need grow, and that is why we are having this concert.”
The concert will feature undergraduate and graduate students from the Department of Music music program at UTB and will include music spanning an array of genres including world famous arias from popular operas and a medley of pop music with a special tribute to the moon that will include the popular song by Henry Mancini, Moon River. 
Jessica Lustenberger will be one of the performers at the concert. The senor music education major from Matamoros will graduate in 2014.
“I feel blessed and honored to be the first student to receive a full scholarship from the Brownsville Society for the Performing Arts,” said Lustenberger. “Singing is my passion and performing is what I most like to do, and these wonderful people are making my dream come true.”
A limited number of tickets are available for the concert, so it is encouraged to purchase early as tickets will not be available for purchase at the door.
Tickets are $250 and include two tickets for the concert, a dinner that will feature wood burning oven pizza and pasta with a house salad and wine. 
Dinner will be served from 5:30-7:30 p.m. around the pool that includes a view of the full moon over the resaca. Following dinner, patrons will move to the front of the home to be seated for the concert.
“We hope that the evening brings out the best of goodwill in our community and at the same time give the students an opportunity to showcase their talent,” said George Ramirez, President of the BSPA.  “We appreciate every effort made to attend this important fund-raising event to assist those students in need so they may continue to pursue their dreams.”
