Piano, Vocal and Choral Concert Set for January 12

Pianist Joseph Martin will be joined by Sue Martin, Mary McDonald and Lee Dengler and a large choir of choral directors in concert on Friday, January 12, at 7:00 p.m. The concert theme will be “Of Faith and Freedom” and will feature several festive patriotic arrangements with the audience joining in the singing. The concert will be held here at St. Matthew. Free tickets are required. This is always a great evening.

The concert is part of a two-day event featuring the music of Shawnee Press/Hal Leonard Publishing. The pianists/vocalists will offer their own arrangements and the choir will sing several songs written by the featured guests. The music will be accompanied by organ and piano. The guest musicians entertain the audience with comical comments on music and music makers but also share inspiring stories of the power of music. The Saturday, January 13 workshop for choral directors is attended by hundreds of musicians from the East Coast.
