Saturday afternoon, March 10, the sanctuary at ClearView Community Church echoed with the music of Ravel, Vivaldi and Handel as violinists Noelle Hogan and Kirsten Campbell presented their “Two Friends and Two Violins” concert. Helped in their program by their daughters Aly Hogan and Mackenzie Campbell and pianist Teresa Roorda, the two Alpine Orchestra members received a standing ovation from the audience with shouts of “Encore!” as they finished the program. Asked why they felt moved to present the concert, Noelle said, “We both love the music and enjoy playing together so we thought planning and playing a concert would give us motivation and focus.”
The concert was free, but an opportunity to donate to Love146 or the ClearView mission work in Haiti was offered to the attendees. Love146 is a nonprofit organization dedicated to the abolition of child sex slavery. The ClearView Haiti support helps Haitian Pastor Gersan Valcin and his plans for the young people’s camp Jacob’s Well.
