Easter concerts are planned in Oklahoma City, Norman
A regional interfaith choir will introduce itself to the community with three Easter-season performances of Rob Gardner's musical, “Lamb of God.”
The 7 p.m. concerts by the newly formed Central Saints Chorus are scheduled for Friday in south Oklahoma City, Saturday in Norman and March 29 in northwest Oklahoma City. Admission is free, and donations will not be accepted.
Accompanied by a small orchestra, the choir will present a musical retelling of the final days of the life of Jesus Christ.
“Lamb of God,” which has been performed by college and church choirs across the nation, recounts the events through the eyes of those who loved and knew Jesus best: Peter, John, Thomas, Mary and Martha of Bethany, Mary Magdalene and His mother, Mary.
“The mission of the Central Saints Chorus is to invite the community to come unto Christ by performing the best music to uplift, encourage and strengthen those who hear our music,” said Zach Tanner, of Edmond, who directs the choir. “We invite all to attend and feel the love of the Savior through this inspired music.”
The Friday concert is at the Oklahoma City South Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints Stake Center, 12915 S Santa Fe Ave. The Saturday concert is at the Norman LDS Stake Center, 1506 Imhoff Road. The March 29 concert is at the Oklahoma City LDS Stake Center, 5020 NW 63.
