Lean on Me

A Concert with the Living River Quartet

Sometimes in our lives we all have pain and sorrow. These challenges often steal the spirit of the holiday season. Our Concert
provides an opportunity to “Lean on Me” and find support, camaraderie, and love from others who gather together for this traditional event. This concert is a safe place to feel your emotions through the gift of music. The Living River Quartet will share goodwill in spiritual song, feel-good music, and traditional Christmas songs. We invite you to hear music that can soothe the hurt and lyrics that say the words you need to hear.
