Kilgore College choirs will join forces with the Longview Symphony to perform a concert to help alleviate world hunger.

Set for 4 p.m. Sunday, Jan. 26, the concert will be held at LeTourneau University’s Belcher Center in Longview.

The “World Hunger Concert” will feature a 175-member chorus including the First United Methodist Church of Longview’s Chancel Choir and the White Oak High School Varsity Choir.

Congressman Louie Gohmert will speak, the Rangerettes will perform and vocal soloists will include Amanda Bean and Jon Starling.

The purpose of the concert is not only to raise awareness, but help alleviate the world hunger problem.

“Of course, world hunger will receive only a slight dent from our efforts, but every little bit helps, and we can only do what is before us in our own time and place, and with the resources and time and abilities that we have,” said Dr. Jim Taylor, KC’s Director of Choral Activities.

Admission to the concert is free but those in attendance will be able to donate to several charities that help alleviate world hunger.

Donations will be placed in envelopes with check boxes listing six charities: Southern Baptist World Hunger Fund, the United Nations World Food Programme, Catholic Relief Services, Helping Hands of Kilgore, Longview Community Ministries and Rotary Foundation of Rotary International.

The concert is sponsored by Ana-Lab Corp. of Kilgore, Kilgore College, the Longview Symphony and the Rangerettes.
