Christ Episcopal Church in Kent will resound with the music of the Great White Way as it proudly raises the curtain on its debut Broadway Mass, this Sunday, February
10 at 10:00 a.m. All are welcome to join in and sing along with music from Rodger’s and Hammerstein’s Oklahoma! to Stephen Schwartz’s Godspell. “There are so many inspiring musical theatre songs to choose from, it was hard to pick just a few,” says Christ Episcopal Church member Katherine Burke. “But we think we’ve chosen a perfect menu of songs. People will definitely be humming show tunes on the way home!” Led by Jonathan Swoboda, assistant professor of theatre in Kent State’s School of
Theatre and Dance, the choir and congregation will sing songs from such shows as Oliver!, Finian’s Rainbow, Into the Woods, and How To Succeed in Business Without Really Trying. Swoboda has served as the music director of
more than 75 productions, and has toured as the featured keyboard artist for the “18th Century Rock ‘n’ Roll” group Mannheim Steamroller. "Most Sundays we sing beautiful choral music from the traditional Episcopal hymnal," said choir member Liz Pryor, "but this week we get to channel our inner Bernadette Peters!" Christ Episcopal Church is a fully inclusive and welcoming church located at 118 South
Mantua Street (Route 43) in Kent. The Episcopal Church encompasses 109 dioceses in 16 nations (including the United States) and is a province of the worldwide Anglican Communion. For more information, call The Rev. Julie Fisher at 330-256-8994.
