Concert for a Cause

Performance to Benefit the Hungry in Our Community

Hungry community members will benefit from an upcoming musical performance by Gardner-Webb University students.

On May 3, “Concert for a Cause” will feature the Gardner-Webb Chorale, Vocal Chamber Ensemble, Old Time Ensemble and voice students from the studio of GWU Instructor of Music Jondra Harmon.

The free event begins at 7 p.m. at the Episcopal Church of the Redeemer in Shelby and will support the church’s Shepherd’s Table and Food Pantry. The ministry provides hot lunches and bags of food and supplies to those in need.

Concert attendants are encouraged to bring non-perishable food items, toiletries and monetary donations for the ministry.

Gardner-Webb music students have performed several concerts in the past year to benefit local ministries. “We know that Gardner-Webb’s motto, ‘Pro Deo et Humanitate’ (For God and Humanity), means that we should not just ‘sing to the Lord’ but also use our voices to serve the Lord as well,” shares Dr. Morgan Soja, GWU Assistant Professor of Music Education and director of the GWU Chorale.
