Wittenberg concert supports African water projects

The Cariboo’s Wittenberg band presents Concert with a Cause this month to raise funds for clean water projects in Kenya and Malawi.

The Cariboo’s Wittenberg band presents Concert with a Cause this month to raise funds for clean water projects in Kenya and Malawi.

Formed in 2008 Wittenberg originally included four brothers, Isaac, Jesse, Jacob and Seth Steward. In December of 2009, the four brothers released an album titled To Whom It May Concern.

Recently, the group has brought on a fifth member, Lyndon Froese, who brings a unique and valuable enhancement to the group’s overall sound.

Their musical style is a mix of pop rock, folk-acoustic with splashes of other musical influence in between.

Over the years, the group has maintained its core values as a Christian band and has played sporadically at fundraisers and events throughout the Cariboo region. Since its inception, three of the members have been married and had children, which has greatly reduced the focus of their musical involvement and switched to family centred lives.

Enjoyable listening for most anybody, the Wittenberg concert takes place at Cariboo Bethel Church on Tuesday, June 23, starting at 7 p.m.

In Williams Lake tickets are available at Hopkins Design Studio across from Cool Clear Water, and at Johnston Meier Insurance,

Tickets are also available at One Another Coffee in 100 Mile House and at Joyful Expressions in Quesnel. The concert is sponsored by the Cariboo Presbyterian House Church Ministry.
