PCW Choir Concert - "Greatest Hits, Vol. 1"

 
 
The Chancel Choir of The Presbyterian Church in Westfield will sing a FREE concert entitled 'Greatest Hits, Vol. 1' on Sunday, June 8, 2014 at 1:00 pm in the church Sanctuary. It will feature a very diverse assortment of works ranging from Haydn to Zambian music to pop to gospel, and will include an original work by PCW’s Director of Music and Organist Ed Alstrom.

The repertoire will be pieces that were particularly well-received by our congregants at services over the past year and a half, covering a wide range of stylistic territory and emotions. Also featured will be the church’s soloists (Cassandra Marie Lambros, Soprano: Elli Albert, Alto; Craig Sanphy, Tenor, Donald Boos, Baritone), and several of the choir members who play instruments.

The ‘opening act’ will be the PCW Chancel Handbell Choir, performing some arrangements of well-known and beloved hymns.

There is no charge for admission. Please join us for a fun afternoon of great music!
