In order to highlight the music ministry aspect of the Project One Step mission, we are opening the doors for everyone to have an opportunity to experience the artistry of Pepper Choplin free of charge.
Even so, our commitment to raising money to assist our neighbors in need has not diminished. There will be opportunities at the concert for patrons to contribute to our fund at Fill a Glass with Hope, purchasing fresh milk for food pantries in Monroe County to distribute to their clients. Project One Step also supports Bridges out of Poverty, a ministry of Pocono Mountains United Way. Donations may be made in the form of cash, check, or in person by credit card through PayPal.
The music of Pepper Choplin
There is no one in the universe of current church music composition more popular and esteemed than Pepper Choplin. All of the anthems to be performed by the Project One Step Choir on November 17 come from his extensive catalog. The composer himself will direct their dress rehearsal on Saturday and conduct their performance on Sunday. The Pocono Community Orchestra will be on stage as well to enhance several selections with their accompaniment. Choplin also shines as a solo entertainer, with a humor-themed repertoire as well as the serious and sacred one. An additional feature of the concert will be a return appearance by the Major Minors, showcasing local youth voices.
Specific information about the program and the choir may be found on the Musicians tab.
Also at the concert, the winner will be drawn for our annual raffle. Once again, we have a beautiful new C. F. Martin & Company guitar to award. Raffle tickets will be available beginning July 1 and cost $5 for 3 entries.
