What's going on this week?

Choirs from five local high schools will take the stage at the recently renovated Lerner Theatre in Elkhart for a fundraiser.

Students from Concord, Elkhart Memorial, Fairfield, Goshen and Northridge high schools will perform a concert, “Giving Thanks: A Choral Tapestry,” Tuesday at 7 p.m.

“We love to develop camaraderie between music departments,” Fairfield director Ben Kambs said. “A lot of what happens in the spring is competitive and sometimes that competition obscures the real reason why we make music, which is to make something beautiful for the public.”

The idea started with Kambs and Northridge director Dan Baker, who are close friends. They knew of the recent renovations at the Lerner and thought it would be an ideal venue. They talked to other directors and brought the three other schools on board as well.

“Our students are thrilled to perform on the local stage,” Baker said. “We compete around the Midwest at a national level and they couldn’t be happier to share the stage with other schools back home.”

Proceeds from the performance will serve as a fundraiser for the programs. Tickets are available through the Lerner box office, and at www.thelerner.com.

Tuesday

Wana Night Out in downtown Shipshewana: from 2 to 8 p.m. Individual store hours may vary.

Friday

Bremen Holy Walk live nativity begins:  Scenes will include an angel speaking to the shepherds, proclaiming the birth of a Savior; gruff Roman soldiers encountering participants as they journey to be counted in the first census, ordered by Caesar Augustus; knocking on the door to the Bethlehem Inn, where walkers will be told there is no room, not even for a pregnant Mary.  Attendees can also walk through the Bethlehem village, alive with shopkeepers buzzing with the good news of Christ’s birth, and then see Joseph and Mary cradling the newborn King. Shuttle buses leave from Bremen High School, 511 W. Grant St., Bremen, every 15 minutes. Doors open at 5 p.m. Friday and at 4:30 p.m. Dec. 1.

Hundreds of costumed volunteers make this event a success each year. Groups are welcome. Participants should dress warmly for this outdoor event.
