Evergreen Singers, Jennings Orchestra hold concert to benefit Center for Healing & Hope

The Evergreen Singers and the Jennings Orchestra, both musical groups for those age 50 and older, will present a concert to benefit the Center for Healing & Hope on Sunday, August 18, at 3 p.m. at the Plymouth United Church of Christ, 902 S. Main St., Goshen.

“The choir began doing this benefit concert in 2017,” said Evergreen Singers Co-Director Dan Steiner, “and we just felt it was a very worthy cause and a nice way to give back to the community.”

Steiner and Diane Hertzler co-direct the choir of about 30 singers, while Carla Shubert conducts the orchestra of about 12 performers. This year’s concert will feature a variety of hymns and a performance of Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart’s “Ave Verum.”

A free-will offering will be taken during the concert to support the Center’s medical care for uninsured people and advocacy programs for our immigrant neighbors.
