Abba’s House Joins With Bayside Baptist To Present Saviour Musical

Monday, April 1, 2013

Abba’s House is joining with Bayside Baptist Church for a musical presentation of Saviour on Sunday, April 14, at 6 p.m. in the auditorium of Abba’s House.

Saviour is a one hour, modern day oratorio about the biblical history of mankind, longing for their Messiah to come. It celebrates Jesus' coming, dying, and resurrection.  

An oratorio is a musical composition for voices and orchestra, telling a sacred story without costumes, scenery or dramatic action.

Featuring soloists from Bayside Baptist Church and Abba’s House, as well as a combined, auditioned choir of 70 people and a full symphony orchestra, this one hour presentation features some incredibly moving music, officials said. 

In addition to Ken Hartley, Abba’s House pastor of Worship, and Jamie Parker, minister of Worship at Bayside Baptist, Jim Whitmire will be a guest conductor for the evening. Mr. Whitmire served as minister of Music under Adrian Rogers at Bellevue Baptist in Memphis for over 30 years and was a mentor to both Mr. Hartley and Mr. Parker.

Admission is free and no tickets are required.  Abba’s House is at 5208 Hixson Pike, just north of Northgate Mall.
