BPC Hymn Festival planned for Feb. 26

MOUNT VERNON -- A festival of hymns that follows the theme of "Psalms, Hymns and Spiritual Songs" is planned at Brewton-Parker College on Saturday, Feb. 26.

The third annual Hymn Festival in Saliba Chapel begins at 7 p.m. and admission is free.

The Hymn Festival will feature a combined choir that includes the Brewton-Parker College Concert Choir, Choral Society and Brass Ensemble, as well as soloists from the community and representatives from area church choirs.

Dr. Pierce Dickens, associate professor of music and the Quinelle McRae Sikes professor of Piano at Brewton-Parker, will accompany the choir on the Sally Groves Memorial organ.

"The entire service will consist of the congregation singing favorite beloved hymns and the reading of God's Word," said Dr. Mark Bowdidge, an assistant professor of music and choir director at Brewton-Parker. "This year's festival features a themed service of worship through song, drawing from the diverse repertoire of worship songs used in churches."

Area pastors will provide narration for the program. Participating pastors include: Bucky Kennedy of First Baptist Church in Vidalia; David Carter of First United Methodist Church in Vidalia; Ben McFather of Alamo Baptist Church; Nita Crump-Howard of the Mount Vernon, Ailey and Long Pond United Methodist churches; and other community leaders.

The list of hymns includes: "Wonderful Grace of Jesus", "No, Never Alone", "Rejoice, the Lord is King", "O for a Thousand Tongues to Sing", "Open Our Eyes Lord", "There's Something About That Name", "Soon and Very Soon", "Let All Things Now Living", "Old Ship of Zion", "On Eagle's Wings" and "My Shepherd Will Supply My Need."
