On Sunday, November 18, 2012, Union Baptist Church will host the 3rd Annual Concert of Praise, presented in affiliation with the National Bible Association (“NBA”).
The Concerts of Praise series began in 2010, when the NBA designated Baltimore as its “National Bible City.” The 2010 Concert was held at the Basilica of the Assumption, the first Catholic Cathedral in the United States. Last year’s Concert was held at the Visitor’s Center of the stunning Washington, D.C. Temple of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints. We are pleased that this year’s Concert will take place at the historic Union Baptist Church, whose sanctuary building has been placed on the National Register of Historic Places by the United Sates National Parks Service, and whose ministry has served members of the Baltimore community for over 150 years.
The musicians donating of their time and talents are truly extraordinary, and include Grammy-nominated violinist Jenny Oaks Baker, the award winning Singing Sensation Youth Choir, directed by Dr. Hollie Hood-Mincey, and Hazzan Emanuel Perlman, Shira Pomerantz, and members of the Chizuk Amuno Choir.
This gathering of different faith groups to share in musical praises to God is building bridges of good will and service among groups as diverse as Catholics, Jews, Baptists and Latter-Day Saints – “Mormons” – all of whom come together with a shared love of the Bible and a shared commitment to building bridges of peace and understanding between people of good will.
Union Baptist Church is located at 1219 Druid Hill Avenue, Baltimore, MD 21217. The Concert will begin at 3 p.m., and is open to the public, free of charge.
