Noté Karacel will have a benefit concert at Lewis University to benefit Alenga, Uganda. The concert will be held at 7:30 p.m. on October 27 in Sancta Alberta Chapel located on the university’s main campus in Romeoville. Ticket cost is $5 for students, $10 in advance and $15 at the door.

The ensemble consists of professional musicians who come together to offer their gifts on behalf of Noté Karacel, a non-profit organization. The musicians are: Judy Schindler (piano), Elliot Wimbush (vocals and drum), Dan Murphy (keyboard and vocals) and Dr. Christie Billups (12-string guitar and vocals) who is also Assistant Professor of Theology and Coordinator of Service Learning at Lewis University.

Noté Karacel, which means “Unite Together,” is a non-profit organization that provides support to the community of Alenga located in northern Uganda. Noté Karacel provides funding and direct support that helps improve and enhance education, water security, healthcare, and food security.

The concert will also include a special appearance from Harmonic Uprising. Founded by Lewis University student Brian Schmidt, Harmonic Uprising is a co-ed ensemble comprised of students from various backgrounds and majors with at least one thing in common: a love for singing.

This event is being presented as a part of Lewis University’s Arts & Ideas Program, providing cultural and educational programming for students and the community. A portion of the Arts & Ideas events is sponsored by a grant from the Illinois Arts Council.
