The Harvest Gospel Concert Series is coming to East End Arts for its 31st year on Friday, November 17 and Saturday, November 18. The free concert series will take place at two locations on the East End: Mattituck Presbyterian Church on Friday, November 17 and Friendship Baptist Church in Flanders on Saturday, November 18, both at 8 p.m.

"We are proud to be celebrating our 31st anniversary of the Harvest Gospel Concert Series this year," remarked 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 community is invited to attend this series featuring over 70 singers, led by Reverend McElroy who has served as Artistic Director for the entirety of the series. The non-denominational celebration will connect the community together and share the joy of music as we approach the holiday season.
