Philadelphia Boys Choir to perform holiday benefit Nov. 27
GLEN MILLS >> Local nonprofit, Compassion Corps, invites you to join them in experiencing the magic of commanding musicianship again this holiday season. The organization is proud to announce a repeat partnership with The Philadelphia Boys Choir & Chorale for a concert that will serve as a major fundraising effort for their work in Africa.
This year’s concert will be at 6 p.m. Sunday, Nov. 27 at Westminster Presbyterian Church, 10 West Pleasant Grove Road (on Rt. 202) in West Chester. This beautiful venue, with outstanding acoustics and renowned for its own celebrated choir, will promise the perfect environment for the internationally renowned Philly Boys Choir to set spirits in a joyful mood for the holidays.
With funds raised at previous concerts, Compassion Corps has built homes for orphans and schools in Liberia, and has helped to construct a health clinic in Uganda. Proceeds from this year’s event will go primarily toward funding business start-ups that will sustain partner ministries in both countries.
In addition to the musical performance, the event will be bookended by a delightful shopping experience for concert guests. Compassion Corps will be displaying beautiful African handcrafts, ancient trade bead jewelry from Mali, and unique African coffees, an offering of the organization’s own brand, Cup of Compassion. This social enterprise effort aims to empower small-holder farmers to build and maintain sustainable incomes, and product sales will help further such projects as orphanage, school & clinic construction.
Doors open at 5 p.m., so come early and stay afterward to do some creative Christmas shopping.
