As Christmas fever draws nearer, an inter-denominational Blantyre Joint Choir is set for yet another Christmas cantata.
Events spokesperson for the choir, George Mzumara, said on Sunday that the group is remaining with a few logistics to let the public know of the actual date and venue.
“It will be right here in Blantyre [and not in Lilongwe as previously arranged], and we assure the public that the Blantyre Joint Choir will once again mesmerise them with joyful singing, dancing and Bible verses recitals,” he said.
Speaking on the sidelines of a confirmation service at Soche Anglican Church in Blantyre, Mzumara said the group, which has members from various denominations, is blending the experience gained during their recent trip to Zimbabwe to bring a surprise to its patrons.
“It will be a good package which people will enjoy as we are more than ready to show them what we also learnt from our colleagues in Zimbabwe where we went last month,” he added.
Christmas cantatas are stories about the Old Testament prophecies of the birth of the Messiah to the appearance of Angels to Joseph and Mary, the birth of Jesus in Jerusalem, visits by the shepherds and the Wise men from the East.
The Blantyre Joint Choir, which in September this year held its 40th anniversary celebrations, started presenting cantatas in the 1980s. n
