The New Jersey Workshop for the Arts Rock Performance Workshop will present a benefit concert on Sunday, December 3, at 4:30 pm at the First Baptist Church of Westfield, at 78 Elm Street, Westfield.
A free will donation will be accepted to support the FBCW Youth Group. This youth mission often goes to various locations to help people who are less fortunate. This summer some FBCW members and chaperones worked along with other American Baptist Churches from around the country to help restore an orphanage in Oklahoma, which had been damaged by floods. In the past they have hosted a summer camp in Costa Rica, helped rebuild houses destroyed by Hurricane Sandy and have labored at a therapeutic riding farm in upstate New York.
From traditional to pops, tenor favorites to musical theater classics, the upcoming season of NJ Festival Orchestra concerts will fill the entire family with holiday cheer.
