Bethel AME Choir to perform here

KVMR’s 22nd annual concert by Bethel African Methodist Episcopal Church Choir of Marysville, which attracts standing-room only crowds, will be Sunday at the Center for the Arts in Grass Valley.

The free concert is in honor of assassinated civil rights leader Martin Luther King Jr. whose birthday was made a federal holiday in 1986. This year’s national holiday falls on Monday.

On Sunday, the all-ages choir will present music ranging from spirituals heard during American slavery days to contemporary gospel fused with rap and hip-hop elements.

The concert from 2 to 4 p.m. will be broadcast live on KVMR (FM-89.5). KVMR will also present special holiday programming all day Monday.

The center is at 314 W. Main St.

Call the radio station at 265-9073 for more information.
