“Glory to the Newborn King,” a cantata of traditional and modern Christmas carols with narration about the birth of Jesus Christ, will be presented at three area churches this month.
The event is open to the public. Christmas-theme refreshments follow each performance.
Led by Flo Bailey, of Edmond, singers from eight congregations of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, also known as Mormons, gather every Saturday morning beginning in September to rehearse the cantata.
Since 2000, the choir has grown in size and in the complexity of the music undertaken. The first year, about 30 singers from the Oklahoma City area joined the choir. Now the choir numbers about 60, with members coming from as far as Guthrie, Shawnee and Enid.
This year the choir will be accompanied by piano, organ, violin and flute.
Performances are scheduled for Dec. 14 at 12020 N Mustang Road in Yukon; Dec. 15 at 5020 NW 63 in Oklahoma City and Dec. 22 at 1351 E 33rd St. in Edmond. All performances are at 7 p.m.
