First Parish in Cambridge has a simple goal: Replace the old, damaged piano in the First Parish Meeting House.

To get its New Piano Fund where its needed, the Unitarian Universalist church in Harvard Square is hosting a concert Saturday loftily named “Heart to Heart: Music that Heals and Connects Souls” and asking that people pay $10 to $20, although organizers say any amount “will be gratefully accepted.”

The “Heart to Heart” performances promise to be eclectic, including Broadway, jazz, rock and folk music by Renée Saindon, LeLaina Romero, Mykal Slack, David Ruffin and Melsen Carlsen.

First Parish, which calls itself “a multi-cultural, spirit-filled, justice-making community” has a history dating back to 1632 and the founding of Cambridge, and its church looks out on Harvard Square’s equally historic Old Burying Ground. (The piano to be replaced is not quite that old.)

The event is at 7:30 p.m. Saturday at First Parish Cambridge, 3 Church St., Harvard Square. Even information is here.
