Fundraiser to support Warren church project
A gala feast and song event will be held Dec. 9 at 6 p.m. at Warren Congregational Church to benefit the church’s organ restoration.
The Goshen Festival Singers in Litchfield, which is made up of singers from Litchfield, Goshen, Harwinton, New Milford, Torrington, Warren and Watertown, will perform.
The event is one of numerous events planned to raise money for the antique pipe organ.
Phase one of the organ restoration project is to replace/correct/update the blower and wind system, which has an estimated cost of $25,000, as recommended by the S.L. Huntington Co. in Stonington.
The gala is presented by the church’s music committee, along with Litchfield Distillery, the corporate sponsor.
The event will include a four-course gourmet dinner and a performance by the Goshen Festival Singers, who will perform holiday tunes.
The group will be directed and accompanied by Cindy Iffland on piano. Also accompanying the choir will be instrumentalist Diane Taylor of New Milford on the flute.
The singing group is best known for their performances at the Goshen Congregational Church’s Annual Feast and Song.
They have performed at churches, assisted living and nursing home facilities, and many community events.
In the past, the group has also held successful benefit performances for Project Main Street, a non-profit organization helping patients and families living with ALS, for the Torrington Area Parkinson’s support group to fund exercise programs for area patients living with Parkinson’s, for Goshen Hospice and for the CT Department of Developmental Services Activity Fund, for adaptive bicycles.
Tickets are $25. Seating is limited and reservations are required.
