Messiah Project, Inc. will present its seventh annual “Heritage of Hymns Concert” Saturday Oct.4th at 7:00pm in the Evangel University Chapel Auditorium.  “A community in harmony” is the theme of this year’s concert, which gives people of faith the chance to together at a time of festival to celebrate their heritage through different art forms--to sing, to speak, and to proclaim their faith through some of the greatest music ever written.  Again this year Messiah Project is partnering with the Springfield Symphony and Music Director Kyle Pickett.  Also featured, rising Christian-music artist, keyboard Jonathan Story. Sharon Wilkins, Associate Professor of Music, Evangel University, will prepare the Messiah Community Choir of 100-150 voices.
