Tapestry was formed in 2006 when Heartsong Women's Chamber Chorus merged with Canto Bello Handbell Ensemble to raise funds for good causes while providing audiences with high-quality entertainment.
Locally, its charities have included Shepherd's Gate in Livermore, the Food Bank of Contra Costa and Solano Counties, and the George Mark Children's House in San Leandro. In 2007, Tapestry toured England, raising money to support an HIV/AIDS orphanage in Zambia.
This weekend's concert will begin at 7 p.m. this Saturday at Lynnewood Methodist Church, 4444 Black Ave. The performance is free and open to the public but a freewill donation will be accepted in support of the Bay Area Chapter of Philanthropic Education Organization, an international organization that promotes educational opportunities for women.
