This fall, East End Arts will present the 30th annual Harvest Gospel Concert Series, a trio of consecutive complimentary concerts that celebrate the joy of music from the soul.

"We are proud to be celebrating our 30th anniversary of the Harvest Gospel Concert Series this year," shared Patricia Snyder, Executive Director of East End Arts. "The longevity of this wonderful tradition with artistic director Reverend Maryanne McElroy at the helm, leading the choir since its inception in 1986, is something to celebrate and honor."

The first concert is on Thursday, November 17th at the Mattituck Presbyterian Church (12605 Main Road, Mattituck). The second concert is on Friday, November 18th at Southampton High School (141 Narrow Lane, Southampton). The last concert will be on Saturday, November 19th at the Friendship Baptist Church (59 Anchor Street, Flanders). All performances begin at 8 p.m.

The community is invited to attend these absolutely free concerts, featuring the Harvest Gospel Choir, which includes over 70 very talented singers, led by Artistic Director of 30 years, Reverend Maryanne McElroy. This is a non-denominational celebration that connects the community together through the love of music from the soul! Harvest Gospel Choir attracts audiences of all ages from a variety of ethnicities and backgrounds.

"The East End Arts Board of Directors and staff share a strong sense of gratitude in a tradition of collaborating with regional organizations, businesses and individuals to present a wide variety of programs and events, that represent and engage our community," added Snyder. "The magic of the Harvest Gospel Concert Series is a fine example of the power of the arts. We are honored and grateful to share this wonderful event with the community."
