The public is invited to a free community Christmas concert that will celebrate the holidays and support local food pantries. I Hear the Prophet Callin’, by Pepper Choplin, will be presented Sunday, December 8, at 3:00 pm, at Trinity Evangelical Lutheran Church, 308 East Brayton Road in Mt. Morris.
Since its inception in 2004, the concert has been offered free to the public, with monetary donations given to local charities. Once again, the beneficiaries will be food pantries Loaves and Fish in Mt. Morris and Life-Line in Oregon, which have each received approximately $600 each year since 2010.
Musicians from communities throughout northwest Illinois such as Byron, Chana, Davis Junction, Dixon, Forreston, Leaf River, Mt. Morris, Oregon, Polo, Shannon and Winnebago, have gathered weekly since mid-October to rehearse for the single annual performance.
