Jeff Brewer, assistant director of the choir, will direct two songs with text from the Bible, “O Magnify the Lord” and “Speak and We Will Hear.”
Then a touch of Broadway will fill the mission chapel as the choir performs selections from the musical by Lerner and Lowe, “My Fair Lady.” The choir will also perform a patriotic section in the concert including “Blades of Grass” and “Pure White Stones” and the “Because of the Brave.”
Nona Schorp will accompany the choir on the piano.
