The Martin Luther Evangelical Lutheran Church and Wesley Mimico United Church, are doing a joint concert to support the Canadian Foodgrains Bank campaign to end world hunger. In the past two years over 50 communities across Canada have put on concerts like this focused on the issue of global hunger. We are joining in on this major food justice effort in which 100% of monies raised go the Canadian Foodgrains Bank https://foodgrainsbank.ca/ . These donations are matched by the Canadian government on a 4:1 basis (four dollars for each one donated).
The concert “Common Vision: Singing to End Hunger” will take place at 7:30 pm on Monday, May 14, 2018 at Martin Luther Church, 2379 Lakeshore Blvd West, Etobicoke and will feature the music of well-known choral music composer Ron Klusmeier. Sung by the choirs and interested singers of both congregations. No tickets will be sold. Admission is by donation only.
Marion Abbott, the Music Director at Wesley Mimico United Church, has been rehearsing with the choir who will be singing eight songs in total, all written by Ron Klusmeier, with narration in-between.
It promises to be a great time of fellowship, worship, and raising money for a fantastic cause!
