The Gouverneur Community Chorus invites you to experience “The Song Everlasting” by Joseph M. Martin. The presentation will take place at the Gouverneur First United Methodist Church, 34 Grove Street (across from the US Post Office) on Sunday, April 14 at 4 PM. The chorus of local church and community members will blend their voices with an instrumental ensemble of piano, flute, clarinet, guitar, violin, cello and percussion under the direction of Dr. Donald Schuessler, Jr.
Joseph M Martin has masterfully woven together hymns, spirituals and folk songs to create “The Song Everlasting”. The life of Christ is dramatically presented in this cantata that tells the gospel story using American folk songs and hymns as well as thoughtful narration. The miracle and blessing of Christ’s earthly ministry, the humility of His passion and the victory of His resurrection fill this work with emotion and power.
The church is handicapped accessible and the nursery staff will be available to care for young children. For more information please visit www.gouverneurumc.org or call 315-287-2440. Free.
