Donze Dedication Event Set For Saturday At Orris, Will Raise Money For Scholarship

The Ste. Genevieve Chamber of Commerce is presenting a dedication concert this Saturday night in honor of the late Duane Donze, who served as the sound and lighting engineer for the chamber’s Summer Music Series from its inception until he died last November at the age of 60.

The 2019 concert series season, which begins on Friday, June 7, will be dedicated to Donze.

This weekend’s event, at the Orris Theatre, will have an admission at the door of $5 which will be used to establish a scholarship fund in Donze’s memory.

Doors will open at 6:30 p.m., and the dedication will begin at 7 p.m.

A four-hour reunion performance for the GTO Band will begin at 8 p.m.

The scholarship will be awarded to students from both Valle and Ste. Genevieve high schools who are interested in majoring in music- or theater-related fields.

The chamber will provide future funds based off the proceeds of the music series.
