The Sounds of the Southwest Singers perform 6 p.m. Sunday, July 4 at Bellevue Heights Church in Sun City, 9440 W. Hutton Drive.
The concert features songs of “faith and freedom,” celebrating America’s independence.
Everyone is invited and there is no charge for admission. A free-will offering will be received.
The all-volunteer choir is under the direction of Matt Deller and includes more than 75 voices. Sounds of the Southwest Singers have performed at New York City’s Lincoln Center and Carnegie Hall and have been invited to sing again at Carnegie Hall in May of next year. Along with many other appearances in the United States, they have performed at locations throughout Europe, including the Vatican in Rome.
“The powerful music we are singing will be sure to stir the heart and revive the listener’s love for God and country,” stated Mr. Deller.
Music ranging from a military tribute to “God Bless America” will be performed, as well as a six-movement cantata by Joseph M. Martin entitled “Of Faith and Freedom.” Accompanying narration includes quotes from American statesmen.
The Fourth of July concert is part of a special series at Bellevue Heights Church known as “Summer Sundae Sunday.” Masks are not required. After each program, attendees are invited to enjoy free ice cream sundaes in Franklin Hall on the church campus.
