Volunteer of the Month for June 2009
Ken Kasovac

It’s not often IOCC gets phone calls from people offering to host events to benefit IOCC. But Ken Kasovac, who has served as a choir director in Los Angeles, Phoenix, Washington, D.C. and Belgrade was so impressed with IOCC’s work that he decided to create a benefit concert with a choir that he formed with his friends. The Seraphim Chorale choir was formed with D.C. members from St. Luke Serbian Orthodox Church, St. Nicholas Orthodox Church and St. Rafael Antiochian Orthodox Church. They had initially performed for a wedding and were so well received that they decided to perform a one-time benefit concert to give back to the community. Lenten and Paschal hymns were sung in English, Russian and Serbian church Slavonic.

When asked why he chose IOCC, Ken said “What draws me to IOCC the most are the people who actually work with IOCC and are trying to make a difference with the Orthodox community in the United States and around the world. It is our duty as U.S. citizens who are able to give in a capacity to help around the world.”

The event drew over 100 attendants from various jurisdictions and raised over $2,000. We wish we could make this concert an annual event, but Mr. Ken Kasovac is off to the St. Tikon’s Monastery in July to attend seminary and live at the monastery as a novice. Please keep Ken in your prayers. If you would like to hear a sample of the concert, click here:
