‘Singing Men’ to perform March 8
The “Singing Men of South Texas” will present a free gospel music concert in the Floresville Event Center located at 600 S.H. 97 W. on Thursday, March 8, at 7 p.m.
All are invited to attend and enjoy the variety of gospel music. The “Singing Men of South Texas” is composed of ministers of music and church musicians from churches in South Texas from Georgetown to McAllen and Del Rio to Port Lavaca.
Tommy Lyons has been director of the group since 1979. Six other such groups as this go together to form “Singing Men of Texas,” and are an arm of the Baptist General Convention of Texas.
Besides doing one concert per month in this area of the state, this group participates in music missions around the world. The group just completed a choir project to Bethlehem, Israel, in December 2011, and is looking forward to a project to the Ukraine in September 2012.
The Singing Men will have lunch at Jack’s Cafe in Floresville before performing a mini concert at the Frank M. Tejeda Texas State Veterans Home at 12:30 p.m.
The event is being co-hosted by the First Baptist Church of La Vernia, First Baptist Church of Floresville, First Baptist Church of Pleasanton, and First Baptist Church of Kenedy. The choirs from these churches will join the Singing Men for two songs during the concert.
