Sounds Of Unity Celebration Concert To Be Held Saturday At Olivet Baptist Church

Friday, February 22, 2019

Churches from all over gather to form the city’s largest multicultural choir for Marcellus Barnes & The Sounds of Unity Mass Choir Black History Celebration Concert.

"Music and the arts historically has served as a universal ambassador for gathering people from all walks of life to celebrate our commonalities instead of our differences," officials said. "Sounds of Unity is a spirit-filled music ministry that was founded in 2006 by Marcellus Barnes for the community to unite and celebrate diversity and tolerance.

"The choir consists of members from area churches all throughout Chattanooga. There are over 100 active members serving in the choir. In addition, the concert also takes this time to celebrate African American heritage and leadership as a Black History month activity. SOU honors community leaders who have made a significant difference within the African American community. 

This year’s celebration will be held at Olivet Baptist Church, 740 E M.L. King Blvd. this Saturday at 6 p.m. Doors open at 5 p.m. Tickets are $10 and can be purchased at the door. Proceeds from the Sounds of Unity Celebration concert will go to benefit the Unity Performance Arts Foundation.
