LJPC Christmas Concert: Hallelujah!
4:00 and 7:00pm Sunday, December 14, 2014
www.ljpres.org/concert-series/
The greatest story ever told through some of the most majestic music ever conceived. Following traditional and contemporary carols and anthems of the season, including congregational singing with the LJPC Chancel Choir and professional orchestra, we will conclude with the Christmas portion of Messiah and Handel’s exultant “Hallelujah Chorus”. With the addition of the LJPC children’s choirs at the first concert, this Christmas celebration has become a popular and well-established tradition at LJPC, as evidenced by large audiences at both concerts. Come join us as we celebrate the birth of the Messiah with music’s most powerful message of faith.

We have a radio commercial for the concert running on KPRZ 1210am. You can hear the commercial here or on the air eight times a day.

The San Diego Master Chorale (SDMC) is comprised of approximately 100 of the most gifted singers in the San Diego area. This chorale has contributed to San Diego’s cultural richness for over 50 years, frequently performing with the San Diego Symphony and the San Diego Opera. SDMC has expertly performed many works throughout the United States and Europe, and seeks to promote the art of choral music in our community by putting on workshops in schools and collaborating with youth musical groups in San Diego.

Pacific Coast Harmony Men’s Barbershop Chorus and Pacific Suns Youth Chorus are a cappella groups dedicated to the tradition of Barbershop harmony. They have both competed at International Barbershop Conventions. The ensembles are made up of men and young men who have a passion for singing in close four-part harmony. Their selections include Doo-Wop, Country, Patriotic, Gospel, Swing and Broadway styles that are sure to create a memorable evening.

LJPC Spring Concert: Spread the News!
4:00pm Sunday, June 14, 2015
www.ljpres.org/concert-series/
Join the LJPC Chancel Choir in their send-off concert as they prepare to “spread the good news” in Ireland. The Chancel Choir will present music they will sing in churches, towns, and cities on a 9-day tour of the home of St. Patrick the week following the concert. From traditional and American favorites to Celtic and contemporary styles, this concert will have something for everyone. Don’t miss a last chance to say “Slán go fóill!” (“goodbye for now”) to the Chancel Choir before we take our music to minister in Ireland.
