Choirs to sing praises at free concert



A joyful noise will be raised Sunday as choral groups and musicians from 10 United Methodist Churches from North County, Howard County and Baltimore gather to take part in Choir Fest.

The event, sponsored by the Baltimore Southwest District of the United Methodist Church, will take place at the Mount Zion United Methodist Church in Highland, at the corner of Route 216 and Brown Bridge Road.

Selections will be offered by adult and children's choirs, soloists, a bell choir and a deaf choir. A period of social fellowship with refreshments will follow the program. Everyone is invited to enjoy this diverse presentation of music.

The free concert will run from 3 p.m. to 4:30 p.m. A free-will offering will be taken to support the Camp Harmison building fund.
