A Tribute to the Master - Special Musical Celebration of the Life of Jesus Christ
May 4-5 performances feature 72 singers and special guest soloist Cary Bate
The concert will be held on May 4 - 5 at 7 p.m. at The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints Church located at 4833 Suwanee Dam Road, adjacent to North Gwinnett High School. No ticket is necessary and all are welcomed. A reception will follow each performance.
The choir performance will include guest soloist, Cary Bate from Salt Lake City, who has sung for decades for a wide variety of audiences including world leaders and influencers like Mother Teresa in Calcutta, India. He also performed in past Atlanta choirs directed by Sugar Hill Choir Director Pamela Gates, who helped to mentor him in the early years of his career.
"I am more fulfilled as a performer when I am able to share my love for our Savior Jesus Christ," said Bate. "I am also thrilled to come full circle with Pam and return to beautiful Atlanta to perform once again with her and the Sugar Hill Choir."
For this musical tribute, the choir will sing a special song, "Here I Am Lord" by former Jesuit composer, Dan Schutte. Suwanee congregation member of The Church, Corazon Ketchem quips, "I look forward to the choir's rendition of this beloved hymn I often and fervently sang during noon masses at the Jesuit University of the Ateneo de Manila. It is a wonderful gift to experience many different religions through events such as this, that provide a forum for learning about each other's beliefs and brings us closer as a community." https://youtu.be/
During this Easter season, the musical celebration will help neighbors and friends from all religions better understand the Choir's and Church's Christian belief, love and testimony of Jesus Christ, the promised Messiah and Savior of the World.
