OXFORD – PEO members still have some tickets to the talented trio, Brother Sun, who will be performing at 6 On The Square (6OTS) on Friday at 7:30 p.m. The three rich voices weave a tapestry of harmony that is brilliantly fresh. The community is invited to an unforgettable evening of moving music while benefiting the Philanthropic Educational Organization (PEO).
Brother Sun are nationally touring folk artists from three major points on the map - Greg Greenway of Boston, Pat Wictor of New York, and Joe Jencks of Chicago. The harmonies and lyrics sung by Pat, Greg, and Joe celebrate the amazing power of singing together, and their music is warm as a campfire, stirring as a gospel church, and rousing as a call to arms. Fusing folk, Americana, blues, pop, jazz, rock, and a cappella singing, Brother Sun is an explosion of musical diversity and harmony, in the finest of male singing traditions.
The amazing power demonstrated by the blending of Brother Sun’s talents is appropriately paired with this fundraiser for the Philanthropic Educational Organization or PEO. PEO began in 1869, with a few enthusiastic members devoted to helping each other reach challenging educational goals. Today, they are an amazing group of nearly a quarter of a million women with a history of benevolence and involvement. PEO contributes to the betterment of women everywhere with more than a half-dozen well-funded scholarships.
Aside from this concert, the local PEO chapter, Chapter CG, is involved in several other charitable drives. Each May, they hold a special Open House at Gallery 3-2-1, and they also have a bi-annual fall Auction event with progressive hors d’oeuvres and desserts. Friday night, the 6OTS refreshment counter will be offering a great assortment of home baked goodies such as pies, cakes, cookie bars, and cheese and cracker plates made by the PEO “sisters.” In addition, there will be raffle tickets for a chance to win a “Lotto Tree,” (which is a tree full of lotto tickets). These raffle tickets can be purchased at the concert as well as from PEO members in advance. Call 843-6953 or email email@example.com for a PEO member near you.
