MPS Alumni and Homeless Choir performance

MPS Alumni and Homeless Choir Performance

The music of the MPS (Milwaukee Public School) Alumni and Homeless Community Choir will fill Adams Hall on the Nashotah House Seminary Campus Sunday, March 25, 2012.

Beginning at 2 p.m. the MPS Alumni and Homeless Choir will perform Gospel, Classical and Contemporary Music. The choir is comprised of people of all ages, races, religions, abilities and occupations. The choir was organized in 2006 by Barry Applewhite, former Music Curriculum specialist for the Milwaukee Public Schools. In 2009, the choir expanded to include members of Milwaukee’s homeless community. It is now under the direction of Arlene Skwierawski, a former music teacher at North Division High School, and K.C. Williams, a graduate of North Division High School, a Country Music Artist, and a traveling music teacher for MPS, accompanied by the assistant, director, Judy Strauss.

CDs of the choir’s music will be sold at the concert to benefit the choir as it shares its music ministry throughout the country and the world.

There is no charge to attend the concert, however, a freewill offering will be taken to benefit the Jackson Kemper Mission Society on the Nashotah Campus, as it performs mission work in Waukesha and Milwaukee Counties, as well as in disaster torn areas of the United States and in the broader mission field of the world.
