Musicians from across Chicagoland took the stage for "Put a Little Love in Your Heart," a family friendly pop concert that opens the 2019-2020 Ed Ward Fine Art Series. Proceeds jointly benefited glenhagen farm retreat and Ed Ward Fine Art Series.
Featured singers were Lisa Bowker, Matt Bowker, Daniel Riley and Angel Underhill, all members of Lake Side Singers. Band members included Jerry DiMuzio, Dave Onderdonk, Matt Plaskota, James Ross, Bobby Schiff and Andy Tecson. This talented group of musicians covered such artists as Sarah Bareilles, Josh Groban, Jason Mraz, James Taylor and Stevie Wonder with songs that include "Peace," "A Time for Healing" and "Put a Little Love in Your Heart."
Chuhak & Tecson principal Andy Tecson and his wife, Nancy Hagen, long-time supporters of Ed Ward Fine Arts Series, established the not for profit glenhagen farm retreat in 2018. The farm is dedicated to providing educational and worship opportunities to people of all ages and walks of life, welcoming schools, colleges, churches, synagogues, temples, mosques and other houses of worship, and also not for profit corporations, that seek a place to grow, experience and explore the wonders of God’s creation. Amenities added since the farm’s opening—a volleyball court, raised garden bed, fire pit for campfires and stone paths—were well-used by campers who visited in summer 2019 such as Cristo Rey Jesuit High School, Harmony Community Church, Kingsley School’s Girl Scouts, League of United Latin American Citizens, Project Exploration, Refugee Education & Adventure CHallenge, and West Town Bikes.
