The Savannah United Church Sanctuary choir and friends, led by music minister Noel Wallace raised their voices to celebrate the hope-inspiring metaphor of “Light! Out of the Darkness,” at the yearly Christmas cantata held on Dec. 13.
More than 300 people filled the church on Sunday morning and the choir delivered an impressive performance from the first song to the last. They were joined by guests Rudy Myles and Dwight Williams, the Savannah Male Voices, Abigail Ebanks and young instrumentalists.
The congregation joined the choir in the singing of “Joy to the World” and “Hark the Herald Angels Sing,” and the cantata ended with a special rendition by the choir of “Joy to the World.”
With the reported consensus that the concert was the best one yet, the church then held its annual Christmas brunch of turkey, ham, beef, barbecue chicken, escovitch fish, potatoes, gravy, salads, fried plantain, cornbread and a wide variety of desserts.
