Benefit Concerts seem to be an increasingly popular method of fund-raising, perhaps because the donors know that they are not only contributing to a worthy cause but also receiving musical dividends in the bargain.
Every year members of the group seek an opportunity to serve in the community.
Rosiland Hall said the service they render is one of the ways they are striving to accomplish that goal “I think the combination of service and music touches hearts in a unique way,” Hall said. “I often say to the Men’s Chorus that our ultimate goal is to change the world. If we can use that music to do even more good in the world than we accomplish just by singing a concert, so much the better.”
Abe Collier, second-year chorus member, said he just loves the chance to do some good.
“This has been an amazing opportunity for me to see the effects of my labor,” Collier said. “All throughout my time in college I’ve been grateful for chances I have, not just to go forth and serve, but to start serving now that I know and have the habits when I go out.”
The Heritage High School Choir has been holding benefit concerts to help pay for things to help the choir. There were three concerts held. The concerts were held at Heritage High School. The choirs performed greatly, making a substantial amount of money to support them. We have a really good member of the choir in our very own newspaper class, Ronnie Hester.
