Music with a Mission series features area performers

Concerts raise money and awareness for worthy causes


Good Shepherd Episcopal Church's Music with a Mission concert series is back for its fifth season featuring area performers in a series of free concerts that raise money and awareness for worthy causes.

Created as an outreach project of Good Shepherd, concerts are paired with a mission organization and a “love offering” is collected for each concert with net proceeds going to the cause. The series has raised more than $36,000 to date for both local, national and international mission organizations.

The fifth season kicks off Dec. 11 with a special holiday performance by Colorado Caroling Company, which will bring to life the music and magic suggested by the classic American film “White Christmas,” including the lavish costumes. The quartet will perform the music of Irving Berlin and other contemporary holiday favorites. The partnering mission for this concert will be the HAAT Force South Metro, which serves the homeless.

Concerts begin at 7 p.m. at Good Shepherd Episcopal Church, 8545 E. Dry Creek Road, Centennial, and are free.

The remainder of the series is as follows:

Hala Kahiki Band, Hawaiian and Tiki music. Concert on Jan. 27. Benefits the St. Francis Center for the homeless.
