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.

The “Hala Kahiki Band” (Pineapple Band) plays the music of the islands. You'll hear ukulele, steel guitar and slack key guitar with a program that will explore the vastness of Hawaiian music and its influence on other music.

Denver Brass5, American Soundscape: From Broadway to Bourbon Street. Concert on Feb. 21. Benefits the Covenant Cupboard Food Pantry.

Mardi Gras and street-party traditions come alive in this musical tribute to the cities where bold brass shines. Denver Brass5 celebrates the cultural fusions that make up our American Soundscape - from the birth of blues and gospel to the fusion of classics and jazz.

Grand Tango Piano/Cello Duo. Concert is March 13. Benefits Family Tree, House of Hope.

The music of Carl Algermissen and Ethan Lazarus, from the passion of nuevo tango to the lyricism of cinema scores. Features original arrangements from their newest album, "Street Tango" along with several debuts.

Central City Opera's “Smooth Operator. Concert is April 17. Benefits St. Clare's Ministries.

Featuring Central City Opera Touring Artists Amanda Raddatz, Sarah Barber, Steve Taylor and Deborah Schmit-Lobis.
