Hope Haitian Choir Concert
July 26th, 2018
The Hope Haitian Choir is coming to Marietta to perform on Thursday, July 26. This non-traditional choir is made up of fifteen young people, ranging in age from 7 – 17. They are touring the eastern U.S. this summer, sharing their joy in a variety of venues and churches. The concert will be held at Marietta First United Methodist Church located at 56 Whitlock Avenue, at 7:00 p.m. in the Reception Hall. There is no fee, but donations are accepted to help with the choir costs as well as fund projects in Haiti. For more information, call Forrest Cate at 770-429-7800 ext. 806 or check out the choir and ministry website: www.hopehaitian.com.
You are invited to be a part of their special experience as they travel and share in our country, knowing that it will prove to be a blessing to you!
Join us for a community supper at 6:00 p.m. in the Reception Hall.
The Choir began six years ago, with a new group of children coming each summer. Their exceptional voices combined with energized dancing effectively communicate a message of hope. Though many of these young people come from very difficult circumstances in their home country of Haiti, they demonstrate a buoyant spirit which finds its source in their genuine faith.
Under the direction of Barb House of Boothbay, Maine, the choir has sung at Christian conventions in Haiti, on radio and television stations, at the Rotunda in the Capitol Building in Washington D.C., at the Liberty Science Center in New Jersey, and a variety of both indoor and outside venues.
