Come hear the sounds of rejoicing on Gaudete Sunday as the gospel choirs of St. John's and Christ Our Hope Lutheran Church present Advent In Blue, a short mini-concert of seasonal music sung in the rich gospel-music tradition.

The concert of songs and instrumental works will be followed by the singing of Gospel Compline, the ancient evening service known as the "good night" prayer of the church sung with the flair and soul of fine gospel music.

Members of Atlanta's local jazz community will join the choirs, featuring the sounds of saxophone and jazz percussion. Tom Elston and Allen Ries will lead the ensemble.

This free event is a not-to-miss opportunity for those interested in hearing something old, something new, something borrowed, and of course, something blue!

Please join us!
