Two terrific choirs performing this weekend

1. Andrew Clark with the Norwood Star asked us publicize that the Norwood Community Chorus be performing two free concerts this Saturday, June 27 at Zion United Church of Christ at 2332 Sherwood Lane at Indian Mound (click here for directions) at 4:00 p.m. and 7:00 p.m. Food will be available between the concerts. The choir, under the direction of Judy White, will perform a mix of spirituals and show tunes. The shows are free, but donations are greatly appreciated.

2. Then on Sunday, June 28th there’s another great musical event. Angela Pancella wants our readers to know that at 7 p.m., the choir of St. Joseph Catholic Church on Ezzard Charles is making a guest appearance at Vineyard Central, at the corner of Carter and Mills Avenue (the church that had once been home of St. Elizabeth parish). The choir sings songs in the black gospel tradition full of praise and joy. It is under the direction of Wylie Howell, past rehearsal pianist at La Scala in Milan. The $5 suggested donation for the event goes to St. Joseph's and towards the restoration of the St. Elizabeth church building.
