Annual Music Night
The popular Annual Music Night, organized by the Lancaster Mennonite Historical Society each year, is slated for Saturday, January 26, 2019, 7 pm, at Neffsville Mennonite Church. This year’s Music Night continues the tradition of involving a variety of excellent Mennonite groups and individuals.
Aspire Chamber Choir, composed of Anabaptist singers from Lancaster and Lebanon, seeks to glorify God through choral singing. They perform classic and contemporary choral works. Having received a rich musical heritage, they desire to share the beauty of God’s creation of music. They are organized by the well-known Kravets family, and directed by Lee Weaver.
Sopa Sol, the combined group of the singer-songwriters Daryl Snider and Frances Crowhill Miller, will also perform. Their music is organic, soulful, and shaped by worldwide influences. Both view their music as more than entertainment and draw on their experiences in other countries and cultures to explore transformative music.
Joshua Good and Rosemary Eberly Lebold will perform a collection of classical, theatrical, and Gospel selections. Good studied vocal performance at Liberty University and has performed semi-professionally in both opera and musical theater. He has performed as a soloist for choirs including the Mennonite Choral Singers, the Altar of Praise Chorale, and the Lancaster Meistersingers. Lebold, soprano, graduated from West Chester University with a Bachelor’s Degree in Music in Vocal Performance.
Merle Good will lead lively congregational singing.
This event is a fundraiser for Lancaster Mennonite Historical Society to support the many services it offers through public programs, library and archives, publications, online services, and ministries of engaging the past as an insight into the present and future.
Tickets for Annual Music Night can be purchased at the door. Tickets are $25, with complimentary admission for children under 12.
