The annual Harmonies Sing was held on Sunday, March 23, at 6:30 p.m., at Blossom Hill Mennonite Church, Lancaster, Pa. The singing, including selections from the audience, was led by Glenn Lehman and David Sauder.
The guest musicians were Harmonies With Friends, an octet consisting of (see photo L. to R.) Rhoda Denlinger, Dennis Maust, Sandi Harnish, Kenny Pellman, Nancy Hess, Philip Warner, and Susan and Stanley Godshall. This octet sang familiar hymns such as: I Stand Amazed in the Presence; Lord, I Am Fondly, Earnestly Longing; and The Love of God. A few new, historic, and obscure hymns were also vigorously sung, raising praise to God by an audience of hymn aficionados and acappella music lovers.
The event also launched the Harmonies Annual Fund for ongoing ministries. An “e-Publish Campaign” was announced for the near future. The e-Publish Campaign will get into modern format and in professional scores the many German heritage materials the Foresingers and Table Singers have sung from manuscript for over 20 years.
