Outer Banks Presbyterian to present Easter musical

The Music Ministry of the Outer Banks Presbyterian Church will present “The Love of God,” a musical on the life of Christ on Saturday, March 17 at 5 p.m. and Sunday, March 18 at 5 p.m.

This musical presentation consists of song selections and narrations taken from various sources by the church music director Jason Evans. The performance will be given by the sanctuary choir of the church along with numerous musical guests all combining to build a 58-voice choir, a 12-piece orchestra and narrators to tell the story of Jesus’s love for humanity by giving His life on a cross over two thousand years ago.  The first portion of the concert will focus on the love of God. The second portion will tell the story of the final week of Christ’s life from the triumphal entry through the last supper, crucifixion and resurrection. The choir has been working on the musical for weeks.

Guest conductor Ken Clifton returns for his tenth time to direct the choir and orchestra. Clifton’s career includes numerous engagements all around the country, spanning time on Broadway in New York City, to working as a vocal coach at Orlando’s Disney World. In addition, Clifton has spent time at the Outer Banks as musical director for “The Lost Colony” in Manteo for several summers.

Guest solo vocalists include: Pamela Tanner, Melanie Dinkle, Beth Rice, Elaine Reed, Patrice White-Taylor Welch and Brian Hare.

The orchestra will be comprised of: Steve Blackstock, organist; Jason Evans, pianist; David Hopson, drummer; Reid Stockdill, Timpani/Percussion; Timothy Briggs, Electric Bass Guitar; Leslie Erickson, Shannah Boone, and Billy Tanner, violinists; Sue Waters, violist; John Griffin, cellist; Suzanne Blackstock and Katie Blackstock Blanchard, flautists.

All are invited to attend. Admission is free and a freewill love offering will be received, which supports the church’s music minister. A nursery will be provided. Outer Banks Presbyterian Church is located at 907 South Croatan Highway (Milepost 8.5) in Kill Devil Hills.
