On Sunday, December 18, at 10:30 a.m., the Sanctuary Choir
and orchestra will present the new Christmas Cantata An Invitation to a Miracle , written and arranged by Joseph
Martin. This cantata consists of an
overture and eight classic and contemporary Christmas carols centering around
the four Advent themes of Peace, Hope, Joy and Love. Carols included are “Hark the Herald Angels
Sing,” “Sing We Now of Christmas,” “Angels We Have Heard On High,” “Suo Gan (A
Celtic Carol),” and “Would I Miss the Miracle.”
The 70 voice Sanctuary Choir (including guest Christmas
singers) will be accompanied by full orchestra and under the direction of Glen
Adkins, Minister of Music.
As a part of this special Christmas music service, we
welcome back guest tenor soloist Lucas Richter of New York City. Lucas and our own soprano Gale Odom will join
together to sing “O Holy Night,” just as they did in December of 2014. Lucas is the son-in-law of Glen and Clista.
Please help us spread the word about this special service of
Christmas music by inviting your friends and neighbors throughout the
Shreveport-Bossier community. An Invitation to a Miracle, Sunday,
