CUMBERLAND - Choruses representing five area churches will be performing a unique nondenominational concert Sunday to benefit the Northern Rhode Island Food Pantry located on Nate Whipple Highway.
The Food Pantry Choral Benefit Concert will be held at 3 p.m. at St. John Vianney Church, 3069 Diamond Hill Road. The concert, which will include gospel to contemporary, features choirs from St. John Vianney Church, Emmanuel Episcopal Church, Four Corners Community Chapel, Calvin Presbyterian Church and Arnold Mills United Methodist Church.
Admission is free, and a basket for offerings will be passed around to collect money for the Northern Rhode Island Food Pantry. Guests are also invited to bring non-perishable food items.
The concert is being coordinated by volunteers at Calvin Presbyterian Church, who were approached by organizers of the food pantry a few months ago.
Each of the choirs will perform its own songs and then join on stage for a finale led by Calvin Presbyterian Choir Director Derek Doura.
The Northern Rhode Island Food Pantry is a Rhode Island non-profit corporation that provides high-quality food and services to individuals and families in the Northern Rhode Island area.
