The Festival of Music
“The Glory of the Gospel” is the theme of a joyful and inspiring evening of worship right here in Jackson on Sunday, October 14th at 6:00 p.m. Featuring African-American spirituals and great hymns of faith, the choir of 100 singers and orchestra of 50 instrumentalists will lift your spirits through their renditions of such beloved classics as Great Gettin’ Up Morning, He’s Got the Whole World in His Hands, There Is a Balm in Gilead, In Christ Alone, Amazing Grace, Wonderful Words of Life and There Is a Fountain. For many years, the First Presbyterian Choir has been appreciated for the beauty of their sound which is wonderfully enhanced when accompanied by the outstanding players drawn from the Mississippi Symphony. Everyone is invited to join this free event – an evening of musical worship at First Presbyterian Church in Jackson, located on the corner of North State and Belhaven Streets.
