Gandhi School Choir’s first performance

Gandhi School Choir, Pecs, HungaryAfter only four rehearsals the newly formed Gandhi School Choir in Pecs, Hungary performed four Christmas songs at a school program December 20. Clista and Glen Adkins are CBF GSC Field Personnel teaching at the public high school for Roma teenagers. The choir performed God Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen/We Three Kings with a mixture of Hungarian and English and with guitar accompaniment. The choir started rehearsals November 27 and there is great promise for the future. The choir will be learning all types of songs, from Gypsy music to Gospel to Contemporary Christian. This is another way that the Gospel is being shared with the Roma students at the Gandhi School.

One thought on “Gandhi School Choir’s first performance

  1. Glen – What a great sounding group! As a musician, I’m very impressed that they learned that song in four weeks and sang it so well! I could understand their English clearly and the soloists did fabulous. I do have to say that I love hearing their accent, though. I always have loved that arrangement and it sounded good with the guitars. You are right that there is great promise for the future with that group of singers.

    I don’t know if you remember meeting me at CBF during the musicians meeting or not and I believe I bumped into you at General Assembly as well. I have a habit of going to the FBC Greenville website and listening to their service online when I’m sick or can’t make it to church because of weather, travel, etc. I noticed your newsletter on their site and have loved reading it and keeping up with you and Clista. Know that you are in my thoughts and prayers.
