Jasper UMC Youth Choir to Perform May 20
5/15/2018 ~ by William Pattillo
Sunday, May 20, at 3:30 P.M., Music at Holy Family will present the Jasper United Methodist Youth Choir, directed by Roxanne B. Golden, in a preview concert of their Youth Choir Summer Music Tour.
The choir is a group of young people in grades 6-12 who are an integral part of the Music Ministry at Jasper United Methodist Church. They provide music for Sunday morning worship services and other special services throughout the year.
The highlight of the choir year is the Summer Music Tour the first week of June. In the past, this group has traveled to numerous locations including Washington, D.C., New York City, Philadelphia, Louisville, Norfork, West Palm Beach, New Orleans, Nashville, St. Louis and many other smaller towns and cities carrying their inspirational music to congregations and passerbys who stop to hear the message. These dedicated young people work from September until June at various fundraising events to earn money for this trip.
On June 3rd the choir will depart from Jasper for a week-long journey to take their message of faith into the world. They will travel to Tennessee, Kentucky, Ohio, and North Carolina where they will be part of a work team helping others who are in need. They will present their musical, “Speak Life” at several churches and various other venues during the week.
“We are pleased to present highlights of our tour music for our friends at Holy Family on this Day of Pentecost,” said Choir Director Golden.
Following the concert, the Holy Family Parish Choir will sing choral evensong, a brief choral service of scripture and prayer considered to be the crown jewel of English choral music. The Youth Choir will join with the Parish Choir at the conclusion of evensong.
A festive reception follows evensong and all are cordially invited to greet the guest artists and thank them personally.
This concludes the 2017-2018 season of free concerts at Holy Family. Watch for news about the 2018-2019 season coming soon.
The Episcopal Church of the Holy Family is located at the intersection of Griffith Road and Cove Road, across from Dollar General in Jasper. For more information, please see www.holyfamilyepiscopalchurch.net or call 770-893-4525.
