Tabor Thanksgiving benefit concert is Nov. 19

The crowning point of a decade of musical partnership will fittingly play out in a concert dedicated to giving and thanks when Tabor College choral ensembles perform their fall concert at 4 p.m. Nov. 19 at Hillsboro Mennonite Brethren Church.

The benefit concert for Hillsboro Area Ministerial Association will be the final Tabor performance at the church, as performing and visual arts programs will soon move into the new Shari Flaming Center for the Arts on campus.

“We are grateful to the church and its staff for hosting our concerts for the past 10 years, and the church’s sanctuary is a fabulous environment for singing,” Tabor choral activities director Brad Vogel said.

“With Praise & Thanksgiving” will feature Concert Choir, select group Chamber Voices, and women’s choir Concerto Bella Voce. Congregational singing also is a part of the event.

A diverse repertoire of music by popular choral composers René Clausen and Dan Forrest, hymn settings, spirituals, and gospel songs have been chosen to reflect Tabor’s mission in a context of praise and thanksgiving as a prelude to the upcoming holiday season.

An offering will be received for support of HAMA ministries that support hundreds of people annually with rent, food, utility bills, and other assistance.

Food donations for Main Street Ministries Food Bank also will be collected.

The concert is free and open to the public.
