The Northern Illinois University Steel Band will provide a tropical reprieve from the area’s collective cabin fever on March 7. The band, under the direction of Liam Teague, will perform “an eclectic blend of music from across the globe” to benefit the literacy and academic enrichment programs of Neighbors’ House across DeKalb County.
The concert will take place at 6:30 p.m. at the E-Free Church, 150 Bethany Road in DeKalb.
Tickets cost $15 and can only be purchased through www.NeighborsHouse.org. Tickets and seats are limited. All proceeds benefit Neighbors’ House.
Neighbors’ House provides no- and low-cost reading and homework help programs, such as Reading and Homework Clubs, Summer Reading Vacations and Summer Art Vacations. Most of these programs take place in income-eligible apartment and housing complexes throughout DeKalb County. Neighbors’ House, a nonprofit, faith-based, community development organization, is celebrating its 10th anniversary and will serve 200 students this year.
