*If you didn’t notice, we are in Black History month and there is still a lot more time to celebrate Black heritage around the country. The Music Ministry at Elim International Fellowship in Brooklyn will be hosing a culminating celebration on Sunday Feb. 27 at 4 p.m.
The Gospel concert will include the Brooklyn Community Choir under the direction of composer and producer Frank A. Haye. BIC both reflects and celebrates the diverse cultures and neighborhoods of the Borough of Brooklyn and The City of New York. The auditioned choir of talented and dedicated vocalists and musicians are ambassadors who are committed to bringing people together through artistic expression. To that end, BIC performs at music festivals, concert halls, houses of worship, community activities and private functions throughout the city and around the country.
Also, attendees can expect performances from all-male choral group, Manifest, which made its debut at the Triad Theater in New York City on Feb. 4. The group is directed by Jonathan P. Hicks and includes the talent spanning from all musical genres. The mission of MANIFEST is to deliver the message of Christ to the people of God in non-traditional venues and to reach people in places and in methods that allow them to connect with Him outside of traditional church settings. They also aim to assist churches who are seeking to reach audiences far beyond their current congregations as well as to assist fledgling churches that are struggling with establishing music ministries.
Finally, the Elim Cathedral Choir, also directed by Frank Haye will wrap up the evening’s events.
