Concert series set
During the second Arts at First Presbyterian Church of Clarks Summit Concert Series, church music director Frank Jones will lead the chorus through “Song for the Unsung Hero” in honor of Veterans Day.
Participants in the concert include the Bell Choir, directed by Richard Cochrane, and the Children’s and Youth Choirs, led by Kay Ten Eyck, who is church organist and accompanist for the choirs.
A chamber ensemble featuring flutist Catherine Huhn will perform movements from Purcell’s “Abdelazer Suite” and trumpeter Jeff Leas and tenor Jones, an elementary music teacher in the Dallas School District and director of children’s and youth programs for the Choral Society of Northeast Pennsylvania, will be among the featured soloists.
The adult choir will also perform Michael Bedford’s new arrangement of “All Hail the Power of Jesus’ Name!” The piece was commissioned in memory of Jim and Fran Justin, two musically gifted members of the congregation who died recently.
The concert, which is free of charge to the public, will be held on Sunday at 4 p.m. at the church, 300 School St., Clarks Summit.
