St. David’s concert highlights Emporia Welsh celebration

The 136th St. David’s Concert will be 2:30 p.m. Sunday, March 3, 2024, at the Emporia Presbyterian Church West Campus, 1702 W. 15th Ave. Being one of the oldest continuous celebrations in Kansas, the free Welsh concert is sponsored by the St. David’s Society of Kansas.

Always the heart of the concert, the St. David’s Chorus will open with the traditional song “We’ll Keep a Welcome”. Several other numbers will include songs with choruses sung in Welsh.

Eluned Jones will return to direct the St. David’s Choir and concert. Being originally from Wales, “The Land of Song,” her musical talent comes naturally. Eluned will be one of the special solo numbers.

The St. David’s Society is excited to include a variety of artists sharing their talents.

Opening remarks will be given by the St. David’s President Linda Orear. Rev. Gary Goozen and Rev. Phyllis Stutzman will give the invocation and benediction, respectively. The concert will close with the singing of “God Be With You”.

St. David’s Society officers for 2024-25 year are President Mi’Chielle Cooper, Vice President Jennifer Baldwin, Secretary Deb Childears, and Treasurer Rhonda Gordon.

Following the concert, a reception featuring bara brith and tea will be served in the fellowship hall. An elevator is available in the vestibule.

For anyone interested in singing with the choir, rehearsal will be Saturday, March 2. For more information, contact Susan at 620-794-3917.
