Alleluia Quartet to perform at Sinnissippi Aug. 21
By Susan Johnson
A local music group, the Alleluia Quartet, will be performing at 6:30 p.m., Sunday, Aug. 21, at the Sinnissippi Park Music Shell, 1401 N. Second St. The concert will be a benefit for Carpenter’s Place, a local nonprofit agency that helps homeless people. Free-will donations will be accepted. The quartet will be joined by another local group, The Circle of Friends.
Members of the quartet are Jarrod Severing, Scott Hoffman, Todd Scott and John Vanderheyden. One of the members, Jarrod Severing, spoke with The Rock River Times and explained how the quartet got its start.
“We actually got started in 1985 as a gospel quartet,” said Severing. “We do a mix — a little Southern gospel, some traditional, some contemporary. We’ve been at the Hononegah Performing Arts for ‘Harmony for Hunger’ concerts the last three years. We’ve been at On the Waterfront and a number of different churches in the northern Illinois and southern Wisconsin area.”
The group has produced three CDs — New Beginnings, Celebrate the Child and Every Road. The CDs are available at concerts where the group performs and at Beth-Eden United Methodist Church, 3201 Huffman Blvd., Rockford. For more information, call the church at (815) 877-9237.
