‘Storm’s’ Gospel Mu­sic To Flood SJV Church

MidWeek Islander (Windward Oahu) - - Windward Oahu Islander -

African-Amer­i­can gospels and spir­i­tu­als will fill the air as Wind­ward Choral So­ci­ety presents “The Storm is Pass­ing Over” from 5 to 6:30 p.m. Sun­day at St. John Vian­ney Parish on Ke­olu Drive.

As artis­tic direc­tor Su­san McCreary Duprey ex­plained, the choral so­ci­ety has wanted to show­case this genre of mu­sic for some time and de­cided to cor­re­late it with African Amer­i­can His­tory Month. (The cel­e­bra­tion nor­mally takes place dur­ing Fe­bru­ary, but the group’s ac­com­pa­nist was off-is­land through­out the month.)

Ac­com­pa­nied by Grant Mack and Briggs Christie, the free con­cert will of­fer se­lec­tions such as Steal Away, Praise His Holy Name and Balm in Gilead. Guests are wel­come to join in and sing along, and spe­cial guest Leon Wil­liams will share songs from his her­itage in a rich bari­tone voice. A freewill of­fer­ing is wel­come to cover per­for­mance costs. For more in­for­ma­tion, visit thewind­ward­choral­so­ci­ety.org.
