First, the 13-voice choir, with director Lee Moseley and accompanist Penny Hall, will step up at 6 p.m. today at the Lighthouse Christian Center, 304 Viewcrest Ave., to give a public performance.
Then next Sunday, Dec. 16, they will do it again at 2:30 p.m. at the Port Angeles Senior Center, 328 E. Seventh St.
Today, the program starts out with “Rise Up O Men of God,” “Soon and Very Soon” and “All in the Name of Jesus,” with John Carson offering a solo.
Then come “This Little Light of Mine” and a gospel hymn medley with a solo by Larry Doyle and a duet by Doyle and Mike Perry.
The choir will round out the 80-minute concert with “Beautiful Star of Bethlehem,” “Rejoice with Exceeding Great Joy” and “O Holy Night,” featuring soloist Dave Meyer and the quartet of Michael Craig, Emil Moilanen, Jacob Brown and Mike Stenger.
The final song, as is the men’s custom, will be “Let There Be Peace on Earth.”
The Dec. 16 date will have more Christmas music on its program, said Craig, the singers’ spokesman.
While admission is free to these concerts, donations help the singers with expenses as they travel around the region. To find out more about the ensemble, visit www.PMGospelSingers.com.
