Join the Fort Worth Chorale and First United Methodist Church Grapevine on Saturday, October 14, for a FREE concert benefiting the Tarrant Area Food Bank and Food Ministries of FUMCG. The Fort Worth Chorale will be singing selections from their October "Our Songs" concert, in addition to joint performances with the Adult Choirs of FUMCG. The concert begins at 3:30 PM in the Sanctuary of FUMC Grapevine (422 Church Street in Grapevine). If you're coming to the area for the Butterfly Flutterby, Grapevine Garden Club Sale, or Fall Roundup at Nash Farm, be sure to stay around for the concert. Come as you are!
This event is centered around coming together through music to fight hunger. The music for this performance celebrates choral singing from across the USA and the globe, including arrangements of Moonlight in Vermont, Summertime (from Porgy and Bess), The Yellow Rose of Texas, and others.
One hundred percent of the food and monetary donations will benefit those in need in our local communities. On any given day in North Texas, tens of thousands of families and individuals struggle with food insecurity and hunger. Although this is a FREE concert, we will be accepting monetary donations, as well as in-kind donations (listed below). All monetary donations will be split evenly between the two beneficiaries.
