Tabor choirs to stage holiday benefit

Tabor College choral groups will sing “With Praise and Thanksgiving” on Sunday with a goal of helping two community groups in their efforts for people in need.

Those attending the 4 p.m. concert at Hillsboro Mennonite Brethren Church are asked to bring food donations for Main Street Ministries Food Bank.

An offering will be collected during the concert for Hillsboro Area Ministerial Association to help many local people with rent, food and utility bills, plus transients who need assistance getting down the road.

“We enjoy the opportunity to partner with the Hillsboro Area Ministerial Association in serving the community through this concert,” Vogel said. “Our event offers a unique way to give back at a critical time during the year.”

Tabor College Concert Choir, select group Chamber Voices, and women’s choir Concerto Bella Voce will perform. Various small ensembles and soloists will be featured throughout the concert.

“We’ve chosen pieces that showcase our student vocalists as well as invoke a sense of Thanksgiving as we head into the holidays,” Vogel said. “Our hope is that the community enjoys the festive evening of music as much as we enjoy performing,”
