The combined Choirs of Our Saviors Lutheran Church, directed by Richard Wall, Superstition Foothills Baptist Church, directed by Doug Stevens, and Gold Canyon United Methodist Church, directed by Doug Benton, will again present a concert of great choral music. This year, the Festival Concert will be presented in the Sanctuary of the Gold Canyon United Methodist Church on Sunday, March 30, at 3 p.m. Each choir will sing a couple of anthems by themselves, then combined will sing three large anthems, each directed by one of the church’s directors. The choirs will be joined by the Agape Brass Quintet and Canyon Carillon. The concert will close with Handel’s famous “Hallelujah Chorus” from Messiah.
There will be a free will offering received and 100 percent of the proceeds will go to the Apache Junction School District to help their Music Program. This is the third consecutive year of the Festival and has become a very popular event for singers and congregations in the Gold Canyon area.
Gold Canyon United Methodist Church is located at 6640 S Kings Ranch Rd, one block north of Hwy. 60 (Walgreens on the corner), five miles east of Apache Junction. Everyone is asked to please bring at least one non-perishable food item per person for the GCUMC Food Bank.
Bring your family, friends and neighbors for a great afternoon of choral singing!
