The Music for the Mission Concert Series, presented by Catherine Johnston and Family, at Asbury Methodist Village had another record-breaking year, raising more than $72,000 for the Benevolent Care Fund – we are extremely grateful to all of the sponsors, patrons, and attendees for making this possible!
Every year we are heartened to see the community come together to support this most important cause. By purchasing tickets, becoming patrons and sponsors, these friends show their support for those in need.
The 2019 concert series featured:
Mendelssohn Piano Trio
On September 7, the world-renowned Mendelssohn Piano Trio performed several breathtaking masterworks, including Hadyn, Beethoven, and Brahams.
