JACKSON, Miss.—Choirs from two Jackson churches will welcome in spring with special performances at Methodist Rehabilitation Center.
The lunchtime concerts are a popular tradition at the hospital. “Everyone looks forward to the Christmas concerts, so we thought it would be a nice way to welcome in spring,” said Lisa Uzzle Gates, special events coordinator for the Jackson hospital.
The Paul Goaudet Memorial Handbell Choir from Covenant Presbyterian Church will perform in the second floor of the hospital’s two-story atrium mall at 1 p.m. on Monday, May 12.
The Reflections Choir of the First Baptist Church of Jackson will perform at 10:30 p.m. on Thursday, May 15 downstairs in the atrium.
“Both of these choirs have performed here at the hospital and were very well received. We are excited to have them back. We know the patients and staff will enjoy the performances,” said Mark Adams, president and CEO of the hospital.
