Messiah Sing Along Concerts Raise $4500 for Food Pantry & Homeless Shelter

Each year Credo Music begins the Christmas season with two Messiah Sing Along concerts: one in Oberlin and the other in Chicago. The community comes together not only to enjoy and participate in beautiful music-making, but to generously support a local ministry. This year we raised $2500 for the Harmony Food Pantry, a ministry serving the North Lawndale community in Chicago and $2000 for Family Promise of Lorain Country, a ministry serving homeless families in Lorain Country, Ohio.

We would like to thank all of the musicians and volunteers who gave generously of their time and talent, as well as our partner organizations: Oberlin College and Conservatory, Grace Lutheran Church in River Forest, IL, Harmony Food Pantry and Family Promise of Lorain Country.

And now for everyone's favorite: a clip from the Hallelujah Chorus from the Oberlin concert:
