Two hundred persons attended the concert of Thanksgiving and Welsh hymns on November 23. Under the direction of Glenn Lehman, thirty select singers led vigorous congregational singing. It was supported at times at the organ by Kathy McKeever and the Bravura Brass.
Said Lehman, the director of Harmonies and organist at Neffsville, “These hymns deserve the Carnegie Hall, top-billing treatment we give them in this concert series. This is music to delight the heart and the head and body. The first-class musicians up front turned the whole crowd into a choir.”
Previous concerts, always on Sunday afternoon before Thanksgiving Day, have featured hymn writers Charles Wesley and Isaac Watts. Next year, Nov. 22, 2015, the theme will be Advent and Bach Chorales.
