---- — NORTH ANDOVER – The Concord Chamber Ensemble will offer a benefit concert Feb. 10 with the North Andover High School Wind Ensemble.

Alan Yost will conduct the Concord Chamber Ensemble while Justin Smalley, North Andover High School band director, will lead the wind ensemble.

The concert, which is open to the public, will take place in the North Andover High School auditorium at 2 p.m. Donations will be accepted at the door and the North Andover Music Association will have refreshments available.

The North Andover Music Association’s mission is to support a positive experience for all students in the music programs of the North Andover public schools. Organizers say this concert will provide an opportunity for the association to include the whole community in the experience of fine arts in the town.

Mary Sue Howlett, fundraising chairwoman of the North Andover Music Association, orchestrated the event with Yost and the high school music department.
