Daily Local News (West Chester, PA) - - COMMUNITY -

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.
