The Ravenna Community Choir will perform their 45th anniversary concert at 2 p.m. on April 3 at the Ravenna Assembly of God.
The choir’s special guest will be composer Heather Sorenson, who will conduct, sing and play piano.
“This is a postponement of our Spring 2020 45th Anniversary Concert which was delayed two years due to the pandemic,” Choir Director Janis Harcar said, “I believe I speak on behalf of from everyone in the choir that it’s good to be back.”
Sorenson entered the church music industry in her twenties and her name quickly became household name in the publishing world. His pieces remain at the top of bestseller lists and Editor’s Choice picks.
Over the past five years, Sorenson has appeared several times at Carnegie Hall, Lincoln Center, and Constitution Hall. Although her career is sometimes on a big stage, her heart leads the church in worship. She has years of experience as a church music administrator and music educator, and teaching has become a big part of her ministry.
Sorenson is a regular guest speaker and conductor at churches across America, and conducts dozens of sessions each year at various worship conferences, schools, and universities. She lives in the Dallas, Texas area.
All Ravenna Community Choir concerts are sponsored in part by the Ravenna United Fund. Rick DeMattia is the choir accompanist.
After the concert, guests can join Sorenson in the church’s fellowship area, where she will be selling CDs. The Ravenna Assembly of God is located at 6401 Route 14, Ravenna and can also be accessed from Bryn Mawr Street.
Admission is free and an offering will be accepted. There is free parking at the church. Overflow traffic may park at the Masonic Temple.
