A COLLABORATION OF CHURCHES PRESENTS:
"MESSIAH: BRIGHT MORNING STAR"
Musical giants from Western New York bring a musical message to Buffalo
At a time when many churches have abandoned many genres of Christian music, a group of churches have come together to celebrate and introduce a forgotten style of sacred musical. "Messiah Bright Morning Star", published in 1993 by Reba Rambo and Dony McGuire, is a Christmas Cantata that draws our attention to the true meaning of Christmas. This elegant evening of musical delight for the entire community will take place on:
SATURDAY, DECEMBER 14, 2019
FIRST SHILOH BAPTIST CHURCH
15 PINE STREET
BUFFALO, NEW YORK
A combined choir of more than fifty voices with full instrumentation, will take us back to a time when all forms of Christian music (anthems, spirituals, hymns, gospel and traditional) were embraced by the Church with excellence.
Tickets are available for $15. At the door tickets will cost $20. Student tickets are $10 with ID. Tickets can be secured by calling First Shiloh Baptist Church at 716-847-6555. Seating for this event is 1st come, 1st served.
The collaboration of churches has an additional goal: to inspire Buffalo’s young African-American to embrace all genres of Christian music and strive for high achievement and excellence.
The event will be held at the 103 year old First Shiloh Baptist Church, which has also been designated as the southern-most starting point for the recently developed Michigan Street African American Heritage Corridor.
In fact, there is an historic marker at the church site commemorating the home site of early abolitionists in Buffalo. Pastor Jonathan R. Staples said, “we welcome the community to share not only a musical event, but an inspirational evening, which could serve as a tipping point for some young person in the audience to decide to embrace our tradition. We want our young people to know that you don't have to abandon the history of the Black Church and that there are many people willing to help them. Our religious history must live on.”
