Concert – The TAYLORS Quartet

National Champion Quartet – 

The Taylors Quartet held  a concert at Western Boulevard Presbyterian on Wednesday evening March 7, 2012 at 6:30 p.m.  The Taylors are a brother-sister quartet that sing Southern Gospel and have won the National Quartet Singing contest.  The concert included some old favorites as well as more contemporary music.  The congregation enjoyed the concert and at times clapped and sang along with the quartet.

 

 

 

Exciting Talent Show

 
  The second annual church-wide talent show was  held September 8 following the WNL meal.  There was a  variety of talent.  Emcee Bruce helped make the evening fun.  We were treated to Eli playing a wonderful piece on the piano and to Beth and Katie singing and getting the audience involved.  Young singers Lydia, Daphne, and Brenda wowed us with their talent and courage.  We were on the edge of our seats as we watched the video of trampoline flips and ball handling of Stephen and David.  Mike showed us impressive guitar skills and Richard enthralled us with poetry.  Alexa and Isaiah sang an old favorite and Lewis shared a song related to his hometown to close the evening on a high note.
