Hymn Festivals & Benefit Concerts

The band has participated in numerous benefit services and concerts to support a diverse group of causes, ranging from the Clarke Foundation’s collaboration with St. Pauls Lutheran Church in Davenport to provide long lasting mosquito nets to the Carter Center for distribution in Africa, to Lutheran Social Services of Illinois, Lutheran Child and Family Services of Illinois, and the development of a faith-based continuing care retirement community called the Arlington of Naples by Lutheran Life Communities in Naples, Florida. Some of the extraordinary collaborators for the hymn festivals and benefit concerts have included organist, Paul Manz, Senator Paul Simon and Martin E. Marty.
