EL SOBRANTE -- A music ensembles concert benefit will be held at 7:30 p.m. Friday at Hope Lutheran Church, 2830 May Road, with proceeds going to assist people in the Philippines affected by the Super Typhoon Haiyan disaster.

The performance will feature local instrumentalists and vocalists performing in duets, trios and quartets.

Admission is free, but donations will be requested for the typhoon relief effort.

The church has held several benefit concerts in recent years, with past proceeds going to purchase mosquito nets for families in malaria-prone areas, provide micro-loans to help women start businesses, buy goats to provide dairy products for families in hot, dry climates, and build a more sustainable and healthy food system while training and employing West County young people.
