Gala to benefit Warren church organ
The Goshen Festival Singers in Litchfield will present a gala benefit for the Warren Congregational Church organ restoration fund Dec. 15 at 6 p.m. in Warren.
The antique pipe organ in the church is in need of some long overdue repairs and renovations.
This dinner-concert is one of many fundraising activities that will be held in order to raise money for the necessary work on the instrument.
Phase one of the organ restoration project, which is to replace/correct/update the blower and wind system is currently underway under the direction of S.L. Huntington Co. in Stonington.
The Goshen Festival Singers is made up of singers from Litchfield, Goshen, Bethlehem, Harwinton, New Milford, Torrington, Warren and Watertown.
They are best known for their performances at the Goshen Congregational Church’s Annual Feast and Song.
They also perform at churches, assisted living and nursing home facilities and many community events.
In the past they have also held 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.
This year’s benefit in Warren, presented by the Warren Congregational Church’s Music committee, along with our cooperate sponsor, Litchfield Distillery, will be held at the church on Sackett Hill Road.
It will include a four-course, gourmet dinner and the musical performance consisting of holiday tunes.
The group will be directed and accompanied by Cindy Iffland on piano.
Also accompanying the choir will be instrumentalist Diane Taylor, flutist, of New Milford.
Tickets are $25. Seating is limited and reservations are required by calling the church office at 860-868-7106.
