Easter Cantata performed on Palm Sunday at Bay Methodist

Bay United Methodist Church's Chancel Choir

Leading up to Easter celebrations, the Bay United Methodist Chancel Choir, directed by Ron Muth, will perform their annual Easter Cantata at the 10 a.m. worship service on April 2, Palm Sunday.

The mixed choral ensemble blends voices in four-part harmony to Pepper Choplin’s “The Body of Christ.” Accompanied by a 10-piece orchestra, the performance will inspire with its balanced and unified musical presentation of the Easter story. Ron Muth has been the Director of Music for Bay United Methodist since 1977 and continues to thrill with his ambitious and beautifully arranged holiday cantatas.

“The Body of Christ” leads the audience through three themes touching on ways the body of Christ can be defined. Each theme is powerfully portrayed in the movements of the cantata – whether as the physical body of Jesus, the communion partaken in the upper room, or the church that came about from those who follow Jesus’ teachings.

The 40-minute concert will take place during the regular Sunday worship on Palm Sunday at Bay United Methodist Church, 29931 Lake Road. All members of the community are welcome. The church and their pastor, Rev. Lisa Kropinak, will also share a Maundy Thursday service on April 6 at 7 p.m., and both a 6:30 a.m. sunrise service at Huntington Park and a 10 a.m. service at the church on Easter Sunday, April 9.
