Epworth Methodist Chapel hosted the twenty four members of the Gospel Chapel Choir out of Marsh Harbour to perform their “Bethleham Morning” concert on Saturday evening, December 6. A good crowd came out to enjoy this beautiful combination of music and spoken text of the birth of the Christ child. Supposedly there would have been a movie to accompany the music sung by the choir, but for some reason it could not be shown because of technical difficulties.
The twenty two members of the choir were elegantly dressed in black, with the men wearing solid blue shirts and some of the ladies wearing the same colour blue shawls. There were several times during the program that individuals stepped forward to sing alone and one young man with the group signed the words of one of the pieces for the hearing impaired.
The Choir Director, Kevin Sawyer, kept everyone’s attention and once the program started it continued uninterrupted to the end. The Technician who controlled the musical accompaniment sat at the rear of the hall and also managed to keep everything coordinated.
The audience listened with deep appreciation of hearing the old, old story once again.
Refreshments were provided afterwards by the Epworth town folks and the beautiful weather encouraged the crowd to stay and fellowship with their Marsh Harbour friends.
