Saturday, December 16 was the inaugural concert performed by the new Voices in Harmony group, now boasting 25 members. The evening was filled with sounds of the Christmas season with special guests performances as well. Admission was free, and the audience had a great time with the sing-a-long. A free will donation opportunity was presented and $500 was raised to benefit the Salvation Army in Ottawa. Donors were also generous in their support of a separate cause – to assist with the medical expenses of a local individual.
Thanks to all who attended the April 13, 2019 concert. More than $5000 was raised to meet the goals of the organization! A new VOICES IN HARMONY group has been started and is already practicing on Monday evenings at First Presbyterian Church in Ottawa. If you can sing, and enjoy harmonizing, please join in! Contact Don Farmer at (815-795-7375 or Ralph Johnson at 828-273-5720 for more information.
