John and Edie Murphy Music for Humanity Concerts

Music for Humanity is a wonderful tie between the music and outreach ministries of Asylum Hill Congregational Church. John and Edie Murphy were members of AHCC’s Legacy Fellowship and left a sizable gift in their estate plans. Pursuant to the interests of the Murphy family, the AHCC Board of Deacons voted to set aside $500,000 of that gift to establish a “Music for Humanity” fund, the income from which would be used to offset the cost of presenting community concerts in our historic sanctuary. And here’s where the “Humanity” comes in – since presentation costs are funded by this legacy gift, 100% of the proceeds from ticket sales are directed to Hartford area service agencies and community programs supported by the church.
