The Tabor College Concert Choir and Concerto Bella Voce will present the annual Praise and Thanksgiving concert Sunday, Nov. 18 at 4 p.m. at Hillsboro Mennonite Brethren Church. The concert is free and open to the public.

Tabor College is joining with the Hillsboro Area Ministerial Alliance to raise funds for the organization’s work assisting needy families in the area. An offering will be taken, and canned goods will be collected to benefit Main Street Ministries. The Tabor College Concert Choir is directed by Dr. Brad Vogel and Concerto Bella Voce is directed by Assistant Professor of Choral Music Janie Brokenicky.

The concert will also feature a string trio performed by violinist Stephanie Rempel and cellist Natalie Wiens, both Tabor students. They will be accompanied on piano by Dr. Sheila Litke.

“This type of concert fits nicely with Tabor’s mission of service,” said Vogel. “We enjoy being a service to the community in both spirit and deed.”
