TRUCKEE, Calif. — Native Truckee musician Mark Mackay invites the Tahoe community to his performance on Wednesday, Dec. 28, at the Community Arts Center on Church Street. For the second year in a row, Mackay will graciously donate all proceeds from the concert to the nonprofit Tahoe Truckee School of Music.

Mackay will be performing at Community Arts Center on Wed. Dec 28.

“This show has a special meaning for me. First of all, going to music school and taking piano lessons is how I got started in the music industry,” Mackay said. “I think we all need to do a better job of encouraging people to play instruments. Second, Truckee was home to me many years ago when I worked in the ski industry, and I’m always happy to come back and help the local community. They are the greatest folks up there.”

Doors open at 6:30 p.m., selected TTSM students to perform at 7 p.m., followed by Mackay and his band’s performance at 7:30 p.m. Drinks are available for purchase courtesy of Alibi Ale House. In addition, TTSM will offer raffle tickets and a silent auction for a chance to win fantastic musical prizes.
