“The Passion and Glory of the Risen Christ” is a new Easter Cantata presentation scheduled for Sunday, April 17 at 6 p.m. at the Logan Tabernacle. Director of this new production is Buffy Evans. “This has been in the planning stages since last summer. We put out a call for singers in January and got a nice group that started meeting weekly the beginning of March.” This production was first staged a year ago on a smaller scale. “Yes, it was about half the size,” she said. “The First Presbyterian Church choir performed it for the first time last April with 24 singers and six orchestra members. This year we have about 50 singers and 15 orchestra members and we have added a harp this year.” The Tabernacle Concert and Lecture Series committee, an interfaith group formed soon after 9-11, present Sunday’s event. “It is an interfaith production,” said Evans. “We have members from all different faiths that have come in to participate in both the choir and the orchestra. “The music is really quite accessible, it’s not terribly difficult. It’s based on well known hymns that are woven throughout.” Pastor Paul Hines of the First Presbyterian Church is the narrator. “It’s a pretty powerful hour of music and words,” said Evans.
