The Community Singers of Bedford County will present a Music with Meaning concert at 7 p.m. Friday, March 1, at the Bedford Presbyterian Church, 145 S. Juliana St.
The concert will feature the 35-voice community chorus, the Inspiration Singers, Beth Hull on keyboards and Paul Piller on trombone.
This is the fifth in the church’s Music with Meaning concert series which presents music while supporting a deserving charity.
This concert’s offering will benefit the International Federation of Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies (IFRC), the world’s largest humanitarian network.
The IFRC, in coordination with American Red Cross International Services, meets the immediate and long-term disaster-caused needs of individuals, families, and communities and helps members of the military, veterans and their families prepare for, cope with, and respond to, the challenges of military service.
The Community Singers is a diverse group of volunteers from the Bedford area who share a love of ensemble singing. The ensemble was formed in 2012 and includes singers from numerous churches and communities.
The group sings an eclectic mix of music and is open to volunteers with choral experience.
The concert is directed by Gay Piller, her last with the Community Singers before she and her husband move to Cincinnati. Linda Tice Monroe will serve as assistant conductor and assume leadership of the chorus in March.
