Join us on Sunday, December 8, 4 PM at First Presbyterian Church, Asheville.
A Chamber Music Messiah features instrumentalists playing the vocal parts with organ as orchestra. Come experience this unique and beautiful performance of the Christmas portion (Part I) of Handel’s masterpiece to benefit Homeward Bound and Pan Harmonia’s outreach.
Kate Steinbeck, flute • Fred Lemmons, clarinet • Rosalind Buda, bassoon • Dick Kowal, trumpet and Eric Wall on organ as orchestra! The musicians are generously donating their services for this event.
Suggested donation of $25/person, $30/family appreciated, but no one will be turned away for lack of funds.
We believe social justice and arts access go hand in hand. Pan Harmonia seeks to bring its music to the full spectrum of our society. Proceeds from this performance will benefit Pan Harmonia’s outreach, Shining Light Project and Homeward Bound.
Shining Light Project brings chamber music concerts to people far from the classical music mainstream–folks in prisons, homeless shelters and senior centers. We believe the arts ennoble the heart. We believe in the transcendental power of music to touch, uplift and inspire.
Homeward Bound ends homelessness in WNC by moving people into homes of their own and providing the support they need to stay in housing. Its programs include Room in the Inn, the AHOPE Day Center, Women At Risk, and others. Since 2006, Homeward Bound has housed almost 800 people, of which 89% of have remained in stable housing.
Pan Harmonia enjoys partnering with local organizations to raise awareness and bring community together. This is the 4th annual concert Pan Harmonia has produced to benefit Homeward Bound, and for us, it is a perfect fit.
