The Tri-County Singers will be presenting “Upon This Rock” by Pepper Choplin at various local churches during this Easter season.
This cantata is a touching presentation of the Easter experience through the eyes of Peter. The combination of narration and music tell a story of doubt, passion, failure, forgiveness and faith through the use of both new and traditional Easter melodies.
The Cantata is presented free of charge, although an offering will be taken to defray costs of music and supplies.
The group is led by director Michelle Pawlenko, with her mother Terry Pawlenko assisting and accompanying on the piano.
Soloists this season include Dave Eamer, Michelle Canfield, Mike Pawlenko and Lonny Drake.
Performances are scheduled for Saturday, March 16 at 6:30 p.m. at the Hannibal Methodist Church; Sunday, March 17 at 2 p.m. at West Baptist Church in Oswego; Saturday, March 23 at 6:30 p.m. at Sterling Valley Community Church; and Sunday, March 24 at 2 p.m. at Red Creek Westbury UMC.
The entire performance is just under an hour in length. The Tri-County Singers is a variable collection of over two dozen Christian musicians from Oswego, Cayuga and Wayne counties.
