St. Bartholomew's Episcopal Church will present a tribute to Dr. Martin Luther King on Sunday, Jan. 15 at the 9:30 a.m. service.
Excerpts from many of Dr. King's famous sermons and speeches, read by parishioner, Abner Genece, will be woven into the service. St. Bartholomew's Coventry Choir will be singing the fabulous Gospel Mass written 30 years ago by noted African-American composer Robert Ray. The mass will be accompanied by piano, drums and electric bass. Soloists are our very own talented Janice Miller, Allen Adams and Jim Macemon.
Genece studied at the American Academy of Dramatic Arts, developing his long-held passion for the performing arts. A recipient of several nominations and awards (including the Ovation Award and the NAACP Theater Award), he starred as the Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. in the acclaimed Los Angeles production of Jeff Stetson's "The Meeting."
