The Grand Forks Seventh-day Adventist Church is sponsoring a world-class live concert by Fountainview Academy Orchestra Choir.

The concert will be on Saturday, April 30 at 7:30 p.m. at the Gospel Chapel church on Donaldson Drive.

The 85-member choir and orchestra just returned from a three-week music video filming trip in Hawaii.

This internationally acclaimed youth orchestra is coming for a stop in its Spring Gospel Classic Concert Series and the live concert features huge orchestral renditions of favourite gospel classics.

Selections range from strains of Sibelius’ Finlandia to the compelling, gentle strains of In the Garden.  Also among listener favourites is the group’s original medley of popular tunes about our Eternal Homeland; their Heaven Medley.

Join in and sing or sit back and enjoy – it’s an hour of inspiration you don’t want to miss.

This orchestra has toured Eastern Europe, Central America, North America and is regularly broadcast internationally on several Christian television networks and has even been seen nationally on Canada’s own CTV.

It has released 12 professional albums and four DVD recordings.  The most recent DVD release, entitled Joy to the World, features the entire orchestra and choir of 85 musicians playing and singing as they ride on the Kettle Valley Steam Railway in Summerland, B.C. and from other places of spectacular winter scenery in the mountains of B.C.

The orchestra’s project that is currently underway has just been filmed in the majestic scenery of Hawaii’s island of Kauai and will feature three DVDs with incredible scenery.

From thundering surf on the rocky or sandy coasts, to lush flower gardens or high mountain cliffs, these will be some of the most unforgettable scenes one will ever experience.

More information on this upcoming new release will be available at www.FountainofMusic.com

The concert is free and is for people of all ages and backgrounds.

Freewill offerings will be accepted for the benefit our local food bank and non-perishable food items are also welcomed.
