ORANGE CITY – Singer-songwriter Amy Noelck of Dallas is performing in Orange City Wednesday, August 27. It’s the final Onstage Orange City show of summer 2014, sponsored by the Orange City Arts Council. The show will be held at 7:00pm in the Northwestern College Christ Chapel in Orange City.
Sponsors of the event are Iowa State Bank and Quatro Composites™.
Opening the evening are Northwestern College students Sean Russell and Clarissa Oehler, “This Much,” performing from 7:00 to 7:30pm. From Prairie de Chien, WI, the duo has performed and led worship together for years, and competed in NCDC here last year. They sing, with Russell accompanying on guitar or piano.
Amy Noelck will take the stage at 7:30pm. Noelck, who has roots in Iowa, performs songs of love, faith, heartbreak and hope. “I try to write music with lyrics that reveal the transparency of life… I write about brokenness so those that are hurting and longing for something to fulfill them, will see that they are not alone. We are constantly searching for peace and joy, but I am confident that lasting peace and joy cannot be found in anything, unless first found in Jesus.”
The proceeds from her album go to anti-human trafficking organizations around the world, especially Traffick 911, the Dallas/ Fort Worth organization working primarily with children; and the A21 Campaign, an organization which raises awareness, prevents future trafficking, takes legal action and provides rehabilitation services for survivors.
Noelck works with family life and children’s ministry in a Dallas church, and is looking into opportunities to work as a singer-songwriter, teaching music to orphans overseas.
The concert will not be Windmill Park or the Northwestern College Green. Because of the forecast of rain, it will be in the Northwestern College Christ Chapel. Questions? Call 712-707-4885 or email ocArts@orangecityiowa.com.
