A benefit concert for the Community Fund of Faith is up next in the Sunday @3 concert series at Ladner United Church.
This Sunday, May 5 will feature performances from the Ladner Glee Club and ElderCollege Singers. Admission for the 3 p.m. show is by donation.
The Community Fund of Faith was formed in 1997 by local churches as a means to provide financial assistance to those in need within South Delta.
For the past 14 years, the ElderCollege Singers have been performing concerts both spring and fall at care homes and senior residences in Delta.
Under the direction of Patricia Rogers and accompanist Rodney Asher, the 30-member singing group rehearses on Tuesday afternoons at Ladner United Church.
In addition to this Sunday’s performance, the group has a public concert at KinVillage Community Centre in Tsawwassen on Tuesday, May 21 at 2 p.m.
Under the direction of Mavis Weston and pianists Marg Lepp and Lorraine Jarvis, the Ladner Glee Club is looking forward to joining the ElderCollege Singers for an afternoon of music.
Ladner Glee Club is an all-women’s singing group that was formerly directed by Jane Pallan for almost four decades. It was her vision to bring the joy of music to the local communities. Upon Pallan’s retirement, Weston took up the baton to continue the tradition and today the choir has grown to include 25 members.
The Ladner Glee Club sings at special events such as club luncheons and teas. It also performs two concert series a year, one in the spring and one in the fall, entertaining at facilities in Ladner, Tsawwassen and North Delta.
