“A note from the Music Director, Bart Spears about the upcoming concert, “An Afternoon of Broadway” on Sunday September 23rd, at Old First:
“I am so excited about this concert on so many levels!
First, that I get to work with my dear friend Miguel Angel Alvarado at HIS church, since he always supports me at mine.
…That there are great friendships that have developed between all the singers and now 8 other musicians in the preparation for this concert.
…That it has been exciting and challenging to come up with new arrangements for old standards but a lot of fun. I am excited because these arrangements, WRITTEN for this concert, will DEBUT on 9/23 at Old First.
I hope we have a packed sanctuary to make all this hard, but fun work worthwhile. I hope we have a packed sanctuary to raise a LOT OF MONEY for Wellspring Ministries, which is the reason Miguel asked us all to support him in this venture. If I understand correctly, Wellspring has taken on a greater commitment towards being responsible for its income as well as its programming. We are glad to be of help in that cause! And we really honor the good works that for Wellspring are daily operations.
But for all this to happen– for the concert to be its most successful and for us to raise as much money as possible, we need your help. Who could you invite to join us for a fun afternoon of show tunes?
Hope to see you and your guests there!
~ Bart Spears, Musical Director
