KMMC to preform first spring concert

The Kansas Mennonite Men?s Chorus, directed by Ron Garber of Hesston, will present its first spring concert of the year at 4 p.m., April 9, at the Buhler High School gymnasium, 611 N. Main.

The same program will be presented again at 7 p.m., April 30, at Central Community Church, 6100 W. Maple, Wichita.

The chorus consists of about 350 men who come from a variety of Mennonite and other churches in Kansas.

With the motto, ?We sing that others may live,? the group performs to raise money for Mennonite Central Committee to help feed hungry people throughout the world.

Admission is free but an offering will be taken to support the relief work of MCC, which this month has sent more than a million dollars worth of clothing, blankets, health kits and survival kits to victims of the flooding in Mozambique.

Members of the chorus donate their time and travel expenses and pay dues to cover other costs so all of the offerings and profits go toward relieving world hunger. To date, KMMC?s contributions to MCC total $341,500.

KMMC gave its first concert in Hillsboro in 1969. A book, ?We Sing That Others May Live,? telling the story of the first 25 years of KMMC, is available and may be purchased at the concerts.

Cassette tapes of previous concerts and compact discs of the 1999 concert may be purchased at the concerts and audio recording and video tapes of the 2000 Wichita concert may be ordered.
