Messiah Sing Along
Join us this December for one (or both!) of our two annual 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. The dates for 2018 are:
Chicago: December 2 at 4 pm - Grace Lutheran Church in River Forest
Oberlin: December 16 at 7 pm - Finney Chapel at Oberlin College
Both performances are free and open to the public. Messiah scores can be rented for $5 at the door. A free will offering will be taken at the Chicago performance to benefit the Harmony Food Pantry, a ministry serving the North Lawndale community in Chicago. At the Oberlin performance the free will offering will benefit Family Promise of Lorain County, a ministry serving homeless families in Lorain County, Ohio.
In 2017 we raised $2500 and $2000 for these ministries, respectively. We are grateful for 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 County.
