Meistersingers to perform benefit concert for tornado ravaged church

HATTIESBURG, MS (WDAM) -

The Hattiesburg Concert Association's Meistersingers Chamber Ensemble is hosting a benefit concert to help Westminster Presbyterian Church.

The Meistersingers originally sang and performed to "Passion, Love, and Flowers" just one hour before the February 10 tornado ripped through their church, Westminster Presbyterian Church.

Left without their church home, the Meistersingers have decided to give an encore performance as a benefit in order to help their church.

Along with allowing Westminster Presbyterian to hold their worship services in their building, Parkway Heights United Methodist Church is also acting as the host for the encore benefit concert.

"The concert is free and open to the public just as the last one was, just as all the destination series concerts are for the Hattiesburg Concert Association," said Westminster Presbyterian Church Choir Director, Connie Roberts. "At this concert we are asking if people are able, if they would give a donation towards the rebuilding of the Westminster sanctuary, which has housed and hosted so many concerts in the Hattiesburg area."

The Meistersingers Chamber Ensemble will sing an encore performance of "Passion, Love, and Flowers" on Sunday at 3 p.m. at Parkway Heights United Methodist.
