Many have been waiting for the spring concert of the Community Concert Choir of Baltimore, which will be held at 5 p.m., May 25 at Good Shepherd Baptist Church, 3459 Park Heights Avenue.
The group of more than 100 singers will render a program, entitled “Let Me Walk with Thee,” that will feature classically trained musicians, including organist W. Patrick Alston and accompanist Marcus D. Smith, who are Baltimore City Public School music educators at City College High School.
“We are committed to preserve the rich music of the Black Church, which is celebrated around the world,” said Marco K. Merrick, the choir’s founding director. “In many churches, you no longer hear these songs, nor is our heritage taught and shared — people hunger for it.”
Founded in 2010, the CCC has quickly become a noted musical force in the Baltimore Washington Metropolitan area, garnering standing-room only crowds at its signature concerts each spring and fall. The annual fall concert benefits programs for students in Baltimore City Public Schools and is sponsored by Alpha Phi Alpha, Fraternity, Delta Lambda Chapter.
This concert is free and open to the public. A freewill offering will be received during the concert and a reception will be held for everyone in the church’s fellowship hall.
