Christmas musical and cantata

PIQUA — Piqua Baptist Church will begin preparing for their Christmas musical and cantata on Sunday, November 1 from 3 – 4:30 p.m. This musical is open to all singers throughout the area. Perhaps you have not had an opportunity to sing with a group for a while and this is a great way to get started.

The Christmas musical will be “Rejoice Believers” by John E. Coates. This cantata virtually bursts with the joy of Christmas! Singing praises to God is the dominant theme.

If you love the Christmas hymns, this piece is full of well-known carols such as; Joy to the World, How Great Our Joy, Good Christian Friends, Rejoice, O Little Town of Bethlehem, plus several original selections by the composer. The musical is woven together into a most beautiful Christmas tapestry with a very artistic piano accompaniment.

The musical/cantata will be performed twice on Sunday, Dec. 13, at 10:45 a.m. and in the evening beginning at 6:30 p.m. followed by a delicious holiday cookie celebration.

We are looking for anyone who loves to sing and those who would like to experience liturgical dancing. If you are between 7th grade through adults. Remember that you are never to old to sing praises to God, you will love the comaraderie we experience working together.

Cherie Roeth is the choral director with Mary Alice Newbauer, pianist. For further information, call (937) 526-5559.
