"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."
