The Tabor College Concert Choir and Concerto Bella Voce will present the annual Praise and Thanksgiving concert Sunday, Nov. 17 at 4:00 p.m. in the Hillsboro Mennonite Brethren Church.

Tabor College is joining with the Hillsboro Area Ministerial Association to raise funds for the organization’s work assisting needy families in the area. An offering will be taken for HAMA’s work and canned goods will be collected for the Main Street Ministries Food Bank.

The Concert Choir will be under the direction of Dr. Bradley Vogel, professor of choral music, and the women’s chorus Concerto Bella Voce will be under direction of Janie Brokenicky, assistant professor of choral music.

The concert will also feature a piano solo by Dr. Sheila Litke, professor of piano and piano pedagogy.

“Numerous students will be featured as both vocal and instrumental soloists,” said Vogel. They will perform “a wide variety of choral literature, from Renaissance motets to contemporary choral compositions to gospel songs and spiritual arrangements.”

The public is invited and encouraged to attend this community Praise and Thanksgiving concert.
