Ron Klusmeier is singing so people can eat their daily bread.

During his Tour of a Lifetime, Klusmeier is sharing his passion for music and helping the Canadian Foodgrains Bank raise money to help end global hunger.

“Our goal is to use music to raise money for the Foodgrains Bank, and also raise awareness about the millions who don’t have enough to eat,” said Klusmeier, in a press release. “We want to use this tour to inspire people to help those who are hungry.”

Klusmeier performs at Brechin United Church, located at 1998 Estevan Rd., Sunday (Jan. 13) starting at 7:30 p.m. About 25 per cent of proceeds from ticket sales will go to the Canadian Foodgrains Bank.

Throughout his career as a church musician, Klusmeier has toured Canada and visited more than 2,000 churches in North America. In his 41-year-long career he’s worked to use music to build bridges between faiths to help organizations create charitable acts.

The event also includes two workshops: The Music of Ron Klusmeier, led by the musician, and Projection and Technology, led by Christina Bogucki.

Klusmeier’s workshop is free but people must pre-register to attend.

Bogucki’s workshop will examine the effective use of technology tools in the context of worship.

The concert is 7:30 p.m. at the church. Tickets are $20 for adults and $5 for people 16 years and younger and are available by calling 250-754-9212.
