Esme Kenny was by all accounts a 13-years-old prodigy — an intellectually and creatively gifted seventh grader at the School for the Creative and Performing Arts (SCPA) — when she was murdered last year near her home in the woods east of Winton Road. In the year since her death her family and members of the SCPA family have worked toward building a permanent memorial at her school in remembrance of Kenny.
The work is to be colored glass suspension, hanging above the third-floor atrium at the new SCPA in Over-the-Rhine. A series of benefits have been organized to pay for the piece. The latest is at the intimate Northside Tavern space. There will be a silent auction and live performances by Linford Detweiler and Karin Bergquist (Over-the-Rhine), The Hiders, Kim Taylor, Ric Hordinski and more. $10 at the door. Doors open at 6 p.m.; Music 7-10 p.m.
