As I’m sure you all have heard by now, this weekend the Jubilate Festival Singers will celebrate the 26th Annual Jubilate youth choir retreat and concert. Since 1994, when Jubilate began, the Highland Hills Youth Choir has attended every Jubilate retreat and summer tour and this year is no exception. The 100 voice Jubilate Festival Singers will feature youth choirs from FBC Avondale Estates, FBCX Macon and Highland Hills in Georgia; FBC Aiken and Boulevard Baptist, Anderson in South Carolina; and Broadway Baptist, Louisville in Kentucky.
The directors include Stanley Roberts, Mark Green, James Bennett, Robert Gammon, Zach Derr and myself. Zach joined the group last year. He’s the new Minister of Music at FBC Aiken, SC.
The retreat will be held this weekend at First Baptist Church, Avondale Estates. The choir will sing in the morning worship service at Avondale Estates this Sunday morning, January 20 then travel to Macon to present a concert at Highland Hills this Sunday evening at 6:00 p.m.
I hope you all make plans to attend. You won’t want to miss hearing the Jubilate Festival Singers in concert.
