For the past 28 years, the Mt. Lebanon High School Percussion Ensemble has provided the soundtrack for KDKA's annual telethon for the Free Care Fund at UPMC Children's Hospital of Pittsburgh.

The ensemble is holding four concerts this Thursday through Saturday. Two of them are sold out, but tickets are still available for the other two.
